Jiffy lets you quickly search and discover GIFs from GIPHY, right from your menu bar. When you have found an awesome GIF, just drag and drop it into an app.

You can set a global keyboard shortcut to quickly show/hide the app.

You can also favorite GIFs and browse your favorites. However, your favorites are not synchronized with giphy.com as GIPHY doesn't provide a way for third-party apps to get/set favorites.

Jiffy includes a system service that lets you highlight a word in any app, right-click, and select “Search GIFs with Jiffy” to directly search for GIFs matching that word.

Planned features:
- Random GIF.
- Infinite scrolling.

Known issues:
- When you drag and drop a GIF, the thumbnail is upside down. This is a macOS bug. The actual GIF is fine.

Disclaimer: Jiffy is not affiliated with GIPHY. It just uses their API.


Release Notes:

- Improved compatibility with the upcoming macOS version.

Cool app! - Works well. My only feature request: It would be better if this was a regular app, as opposed to menubar app. My workflow is as such: Few times a day I need a GIF. I can easily open Spotlight, type "Jiffy" and look up my GIF. I copy the GIF, and quit the app. But it's only a few times a day, so it doesn't justify staying in the menubar. Doing Spotlight search is even faster than menubar, because I can do it with my keyboard in just a few keystrokes. This still deserves 5 stars. Good job!

No longer updates on older macOS versions - The app no longer allows updating on macOS v10.15.7 and requires macOS v11 - many people are going to wait to update to v11 given Apple's track record in OS stability
