How does it Work?


Boomerang from Instagram makes everyday moments fun and unexpected. Create captivating mini videos that loop back and forth, then share them with your friends. Find something (or someone!) that's moving, or create a video selfie by switching to the front-facing camera. There’s just one button. Tap it once and Boomerang does the rest: shoots a burst of 10 photos and turns them into a delightful mini video. Share it on Facebook and Instagram right from the app, or save your video to your camera roll to share later. FEATURES * Take mini videos of your life and yourself using the front and back facing camera. * Download and start capturing immediately. No sign up or account required. * There's just one button! The app takes 10 photos and stitches them together, speeds up the video and smooths out any bumps, then loops it back and forth. * Share your videos on Instagram and Facebook right from the app, or share them later from your camera roll.

  • This app needs a lot of improvements


    By TTU00
    I thought this app was really fun because i saw my friend using it. Then i got it and i hated it. It should be like snap chat where you can write things on it if your not using it for Instagram and the boomerang should be longer. The app should make it to were if you are doing a boomerang while jumping it shouldn't show your feet hit the ground. I saw another person write that you should be able to use previous videos that you have recorded and i agree with that. This app needs way more improvements than this. It would take me literally a day to list all the improvements. Will this app please PLEASE try to fix the things i listed and what other people listed?? Then if yall did that i would rate it five stars not 3 stars. I would recommend boomerang only ONLY if the app does the improvements.
  • Ok, things can be improved


    By Yhtgrfedujbdjb
    So I got the app because I saw my friend using it. I looked really fun and cool so I got it. But I didn’t really like it. The main problem is the time you have to take the boomerang. Like literally if you tried to jump, you could only see your feet landing. If you were trying to show a group of friends you are with, you wouldn’t have enough time to show everyone so you have to quickly do it so you can get everyone in. You end up going so fast that you can’t even see the people’s faces so theirs no point. The next complaint I have is I feel that you should be able to write stuff on it like snapchat bc not everyone wants to use it on Instagram. I have seen other comments on these things so I’m not the only one. I could honestly write a paper on the mistakes. Just plz fix it!
  • Zoomed in Camera


    By Ave273693999
    I had boomerang on my old phone and loved it but when I got my new phone I had downloaded it again and it seems that my camera on it is way zoomed in than how it used to be. On my friends phone the camera is perfect but we compared it to my phone and you can definitely tell that my camera is way bigger than hers. Has this happened to any of y’all and how do I fix it? I really hope that someone can help because I really love this app and think it is so fun except for the fact of my camera being so zoomed in.
  • Would add some stuff but love it


    By PANTSONFIRE🔥🔥🔥
    I love making boomerangs with the app. I have a few slight issues that if resolved would make me love this app even more. 1. If I don’t make a boomerang for like a minute or do anything with the app open this little box comes up. It has options like report problem etc. It gets annoying and I want to know why it is there. 2. When I send boomerangs to my friends they don’t stay as boomerangs. I have an Apple phone so I use messages. When I send my friends the boomerang it only plays 3 times than stops. Then you have to press play again. It ruins the boomerang affect. It really bums me out that this happens. 4. As I stated before the boomerang effect doesn’t stay when I send the clips to my friends. The same thing happens in my camera roll. It’s so ANNOYING!! 5. I wish you could just keep the boomerangs on the app and not in your camera roll because I have very limited phone storage. Thanks for reading this, have a good day!😊

  • Great fun and makes you look clever.


    By Scott Maxwell Wilson
    As long as you are willing to invest a little time into honing your power of observation you can create very effective loops of movement using Boomerang. In other words, you may try this app and end up capturing the least interesting loop of movement, but that will be your fault, not the apps. Once you learn the right moment to start filming for the best results, you will end up with very good effects. Don’t be lazy! It’s worth developing this skill...Then enjoy the funny or touching results.
  • Great app but... one thing missing 😍😍


    By m_girl27
    I think boomerang is a great app but I would like one thing to change. I would love if you could like see other people’s boomerangs even thought that’s kinda like instagram, I don’t have Instagram so I just wanted to use this app for making cool videos, and I think that if you would add something like that to boomerang that would be awesome. I asked for this change because sometimes I need inspiration for a boomerang. I really love the app though. 😍😍😍
  • This is an awesome game but it needs to fix some bugs


    By VsCo GuRl aN i OoP- 😂
    So this game is nice and all it’s like using instagram’s boomarang! It’s so cool it doesn’t have any problems but sometimes it doesn’t work for me because the video keeps going upside down, that was the only problem I had. This thing isn’t bad it’s the best thing to boomerang is on this app if you don’t have instagram, Also it asks u if there is anything going wrong and if u need help. I really like this app, you have to download this app 😇
  • Can’t use pre-recorded videos


    By Pizza Cones
    It’s truly ridiculous that they don’t let you use videos you have recorded outside of the app. It’s very unlikely that I will ever see something worth capturing and think to get out a limited-function app like this – I would record a video separately first, and maybe after watching it decide it would be cool to make a looping Boomerang from a clip of it. But you can’t do that here! You can only make Boomerangs when you shoot them live, directly in the app. Very unhelpful. It would be incredibly easy for them to put this MOST BASIC OF FEATURES into this already very simple app – and yet, they haven’t. I don’t understand. So, on to the next one.
  • Has so much potential!


    By IronHill3
    Really fun idea but it could be so much more. I get that they are trying to make it simple for a quick upload but trying to capture the right 1 second of life can be a challenge. Why not make a quick mode (existing functions) and an advanced mode where you can capture longer videos and select what segment of video works best for the moment. Additional features could be time lapse, condensed video, slomo and basic filters. Why is there no access to photo library? Summary: Thought the app was going to be really cool but the lack of features left me feeling “meh”
