Animated GIF Support is Here!

October 8, 2015

We’re thrilled to be introducing support for Animated GIFs across our iPad and Mac apps as well as the web player. Recently this has been one of our most requested features! Starting today, you can add any animated GIF to your Flow and watch it play. Make your own GIF to engage your audience, or use a fun one of the sources found in our Ultimate Animated GIF Guide to keep your viewer entertained. Just add a new object, select image, and then search for your favorite GIF via Google or Bing, or upload your own. We can’t wait to see how you utilize this new feature!

FlowVella October 2015 Update

FlowVella for iPad

We’ve introduced a few other key features to FlowVella for iPad, including adding iCloud Support (add photos, videos, sounds, and PDFs from your iCloud account) and we’ve also added the ability to set your audio to automatically play. We did have a couple of bugs in the last release that we’ve squished. If you experienced issues with iPad Cameral Roll images, a strange error message when adding files, or a strange layout problem on iOS 9, we believe you should be good to go now. If you see anything strange, please let us know immediately.

FlowVella for Mac

FlowVella for Mac also received an update. Most notably is the Animated GIF support, but we’ve also added autoplay for audio here too. We do want to mention a couple of known issues, however. Copying and pasting an Animated GIF from Google Chrome’s Browser does not work, as Chrome does not allow it. We also are aware that certain GIFs, when resized smaller, will stop animating. We are looking into this and hope to include a fix for this in our next update.

FlowVella Web Player

We’ve introduced an update to the FlowVella Web Player on Mobile. We’ve received a lot of helpful feedback and hope you appreciate the cleaner and more simple design.

FlowVella Guides

With the addition of Animated GIF support, we’ve updated our help guides for both Mac and iPad to have instructional GIFs! We hope these are helpful and make it even easier to use FlowVella.

We hope you love being able to add animated GIFs to your Flows, and we cannot wait to see how you use them in your presentations. We sincerely thank you for your continued support and use of FlowVella, and if you have any comments or questions, we’re always happy to listen!
