With this unique app you can easily play all GIF and WEBP animations on your Android smartphone or tablet.
✔ Fast and smooth playback. Uses the latest technology to offer the highest image quality and minimize the chance that your device crashes. Tested with a set of over 5,300 GIF images, each with an average file size of 1.5 MB.
✔ Immersive fullscreen mode. Use every pixel on your HD screen to display your animations.
✔ Zoom in with a pinch while playing. Then drag to see all details of the most interesting part more closely. Up to 4x zoom.
✔ Slow motion. Adjust the playback speed of your animations from 4 times slower than normal to 2 times faster.
✔ Slideshow. Easily start and stop via double-click. You select how long each GIF plays.
✔ Start from the beginning or random sequence, so you see a different GIF play first every time you open the app.
✔ Long battery life. Programming ptimized native routines together with using graphics hardware ensures low battery usage.
✔ No internet connection needed. Runs always and everywhere, also in flight/airplane mode.
✔ Minimal permissions required. Our app only needs to read the part of your device storage where images and animations are shared between apps. We don’t need your contacts, location or Google Drive content. Nothing is shared with other users. The GIF Viewer Extra app respects your privacy!
✔ Reads beyond the .nomedia file. So GIFs that you have hidden from viewing in the Gallery, can still be opened by the GIF Viewer app. Ideal to enjoy your private animations and photos.
Extra options to make the most out of your animations.
✔ Screen does not dim. So you can enjoy a slideshow as long as you like, without touching the screen every few minutes.
✔ Also play .JPG and .PNG images. You can choose to mix animations and pictures in your slideshow. Or select images only.
✔ Pin-code, to prevent other users of your phone to accidentally see your private GIF files.
✔ Animated previews. See all your GIFs play at the same time while browsing a folder (requires a high-end smarthpone for smooth viewing).
GIF collection on your device: convenient and secure
Our GIF Viewer Extra app requires your animations to be stored on your smartphone or tablet. Within your DCIM (DoCuments and IMages) folder, to be precise. That requires a few extra steps to get your GIF files there, but has several advantages:
- No internet connection needed: this app runs everywhere, regardless of WiFi strength or mobile internet access. Viewing your GIFs in airplane mode is no problem at all.
- No animation downloads: saves many MB of your data bundle. A high resolution GIF file can be 4 MB or more in size. This means that browsing through your collection of, say, 250 animations can cost you 1 GB of mobile data. Not with this
- Fast: all (random) selections and pre-processing of the animations are done in the memory of your Android smartphone or tablet only. No waiting for websites or internet services behind the scenes.
