Version 2.2
Review by Johnorsue

Easy … Once you figure it out. - A paragraph of instruction would have been nice. Once you figure it out it’s a breeze. I was NOT forced to upload anything to GIPHY or join their site. I was able to save it anywhere on my computer I wanted to. *** Your video will play behind the APP window. You simply start and stop the recording where you want. Don’t worry you can fine tune it in the EDIT mode. This is a very good FREE App.

Review by BloodyFaxMachine

Marketing ploy disguised as an app. - This was not an update, this was a cynical bait and switch scam. This is a marketing ploy disguised as an app. The important abilities to add/delete individual frames and to see the file size before saving have been removed. An example of why these features are important: tumblr allows a 2 meg maximum file size for gifs. Gifgrabber allowed users to edit the gif until it fit within the 2 meg confines before saving. The saved gifs look awful, with loss of detail and color. More time was spent making this look like the Giphy site (which is tacky and obnoxious) than making it a functional and useful app. DO NOT “update” i.e., replace your beloved Gifgrabber with this marketing scheme! It’s only good for newbs or for those wanting to make an occasional gif. I personally have made 1000’s of gifs and have a large following on tumblr. P.S. I’m sure Giphy is working on a “pro” version of this software, which won’t be free. They knew this would cause an outage with gif makers.

Version 3.6
Review by LoganCMD

Captions don’t work correctly - This app is mostly straightforward and easy to use, but the captions feature is becoming really frustrating. When I add a caption and save the gif, the first frame of the gif never has the caption, making it flicker at the beginning of the loop. It doesn’t show this way before I save it, and this is after telling to start the caption display before the gif begins and end it after it ends. Can’t imagine why they would want it to work that way, but there’s no option or setting to fix it. Guess I’ll find a different app.
