For those curious iPhone users out there looking to add a spark of life to their stagnant snapshots look no further than Gif Shop. Launching today, the iPhone app makes creating, editing and sharing animated gifs less tedious and more fun. We've been playing with in the office for a while now and will definitely vouch that although its not the first of its kind it may very well be the most fun. The simplistic design and user friendly interface make creating and sending these little gems a breeze. Plus its capable of sharing across multiple social networks without file size limitations or hosting needs.

Born out of collaboration between idea man Daniel Savage and technical designer Matthew Archer, the intuitive app was originally inspired by a disappointing attempt to document an especially hilarious Halloween costume.

Click on over to iTunes App Store where Gif Shop is now available for $1.99 in the Photography section. Then check online for plenty of great videos and user uploaded content. But be warned, Savage claims it's "easy enough for your mom to use." So watch out for an influx of more misspelled check up texts full of even funnier animated images from home.
