Yahoo! Sports gets an updated iPhone app and a GIF creation tool called Loops
The Yahoo! Sports iOS app has been updated to support the iOS 7 mobile operating system. Yahoo! Sports has gained a new feature called “Loops.” Loops lets you go through a game, pick a short portion of it, and create an animated looping GIF with effects and captions. Loop utilizes technology built into Yahoo! IntoNow. The feature currently supports the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, NCAA, and NCAAB. After you drop in your favorite sports, you can go through a game, or pick a play. After that you can drop the play into a scannable timeline to pick the moment. You can apply filters like freeze frame and slow motion and then add a caption.
