Create Moving Images With Polaroid Swing App

...

Still images are so retro. These days, it's all about moving images, a la Apple Live Photos or HTC's Zoe snaps.

Now, Polaroid is making it easier to get in on the trend. The company just released a new app called Swing, which lets you create one-second moving images with a single tap. The resulting images "come to life" when you touch them with your finger or move your phone from side to side (hence, the name Swing). Check out the image below to see what we mean (click or mouse over if you're on a desktop).

You can, of course, jazz up your swings with filters (because who would ever post an unfiltered photo to the Internet — yikes) and flip your camera around for what Polaroid calls "3D selfies." Once you create a moving image, you can share it inside the app as well as on Facebook and/or Twitter. The app also includes a "highlights" feed, which lets you explore other swings, which come to life as you scroll past them.

"Polaroid moving photos recreate life's special moments: the kiss goodbye, the face breaking into a smile, the hair blowing in the wind," Polaroid wrote in the app's description. "They combine the composition of a still with the vitality of a world that's always moving."

At this point, the app is only available for iPhone.

The resulting images are, as we mentioned, similar to Apple's Live Photos, which attach 3-seocnd videos to your still snaps. You can only shoot Live Photos on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, so Polaroid Swing brings this capability to a much wider audience — all Apple smartphones running iOS 9.0 or later.
