is a new beta application that allows you to capture a series of images via webcam, edit, include text, then post a brief moving image to your Tumblr, Twitter, or Facebook account.
The final post can be either a single-frame image or an animated gif created from up to 16 separate images, plus a short text message.
You can also use the 'timed' option that automates image capture with variable trigger settings for 1-16 continuous snapshots with 1-10 seconds before each snapshot.
This is a well executed idea and something I can see becoming popular across social networks. The process of image capture and forward posting is seamless, easy and fun to do.
Socialgif facilitates conversations built around visual dialogues and it'll be interesting to see how people innovate within the 16 snapshot time constraint to create short visual messages.
