We’ve focussed on three areas for this release.
• A new Slow Motion mode!
• A long hard look performance
• Stability improvements
Slow Motion mode:
Slow-mo is a new GIF speed that uses the 60fps capabilities of newer iPads to create a slow motion effect.
We’ve used this at a few events during beta-testing, and have seen folks have a lot of fun with it.
It’s definitely a different experience from our regular gifs, so take some time to familiarise yourself with it, and decide if it’s something your clients might want.
Performance and memory usage has been a big focus for this release, from reducing the amount of space Gifyyy uses on your iPad’s disk, to lowering the memory burden during events, and giving you a disk space indicator right on the Gifyyy’s home screen.
When you load Gifyyy, you can now see a quick overview of how much free disk space your iPad has remaining, as well as how much space Gifyyy is using. You will see an additional warning if disk space is running low or Gifyyy is using a lot of storage, with a prompt to free space before your next event.
We have taken the opportunity of this release to hunt down and solve as many stability issues as we could find, including the following:
• An issue that could cause crashes if events had very large numbers of images
• A crash that could occur if you hit “admin” while the app was in the middle of making an image
• A crash that affected Smooth mode on the new iPad Air
• An issue that could prevent the camera session from resuming after switching away from, and then back to the Gifyyy app.
