fotodanz makes it super simple to create cool animated photographs (cinemagraphs) - you can now be incredibly creative with your camera! It’s FREE! No need to register either.

You simply compose, shoot a short video clip (3 or 5s), circle the area(s) to animate, press Ok and you are ready to share your creations with the world. It is that easy!

You can record 3 or 5 seconds, animate multiple areas, select the starting image for animation and change looping styles. You can enhance your images with a number of photo filters too.

Your images are saved locally under pictures\fotodanz folder, so you can access them and share them anyway you like. We have made it easy to share via Facebook, Twitter and SMS. We have now added Generic Sharing too. For more privacy, you can share directly via emails. Enjoy!


CNET Editors' Rating: Excellent 8.1/10 - "fotodanz's simplicity is certainly its biggest strength. That said, it is a fantastic app for creating cinemagraphs." - Jaymar Cabebe, (

"fotodanz is truly an interesting new addition to the long list of photography apps in the Play Store. Not only is it super easy, it also makes great looking photos that truly dance.", Kim Barloso, (

"It’s one thing to say that a photo is alive; it’s another thing to build a tool to actually make it so. fotodanz is similar to Flixel [and other cinemagraph applications like Cinemagram and Kinotopic on iPhone] but manages to keep things simple.”, Daniel Bader, (

"Dancing photos are now finally at your discretion, with the exclusive launch of fotodanz over on Google Play. …the new Android app is very easy to use and… …will provide you with all you need to come up with your own cool cinemagraphs.”, Adrian Diaconescu, (

"[fotodanzes] remind me of the pictures we could see in the entire 'Harry Potter' series, pictures that moved; this feels the same, just that the movements are reduced to a couple of seconds.", Aitor Ruiz, article in Spanish: | Google Translation in English:

How it Works:

1. Compose and press capture (fotodanz will automatically record 3 or 5 seconds of video)
2. Now circle the region(s) to animate and press Ok (you can double-tap to redo the circles)
3. Preview animation, add filter effects and/or select looping options.
4. Press Ok to save and you are ready to share!


1. Super easy user interface and workflow (patent pending)
2. Automatic video stabilizer that removes video jitter caused by handshake during capture
3. Simple method for choosing up to six separate/overlapping motion areas (patent pending)
4. Images are saved locally so that you can save/share them anyway you like
5. Easy sharing via Facebook, Twitter, SMS and Generic Sharing feature; direct/private sharing via emails
6. 3 or 5 seconds record time selection (press More on Capture screen)
7. Photo filters to enhance your images
8. Looping options (Press More on Preview screen)
9. Image rotation (for sharing landscape images)

Nice app It force closes a lot. I do mean all the time. Can we also have longer than 5 seconds. Makes it impossible to take your own photos. I would like to upgrade but I have read the reviews and don't think it would be wise. I have tried the others and this one is far better. If it didn't force close all THE TIME

Beebah Habibi

May I suggest the addition of a text addition feature? I'd love to be able to add captions to my creations :) Also, when I first began using this app, focus was instant. For some reason this changed and now, about one second into my recording, there is a shift in focus, resulting in a slightly blurred still image.

Nyah Kalie

Blech I was online looking up how to make a gift and the guy that was telling me how recommended this so I tried it. I don't see how this is used to make a gif.

Karen Levels

Doesn't work I wanted it to work and uninstalled and reinstalled twice but I can't get past putting a filter. I can't see if my photo is animated

Stephen Childs

Not the cleanest interface but a cool app that works really well, great for free! Let's see sharing o G+ soon too!

Sam WestPhotography

Not there yet Can't focus... Focus distance is 3ft away or so. Not very fun.

Stephen English

Didn't get past the first screen that shows upon opening because it wants you to register, and won't let you use the app without doing so. Uninstall.

Clive Tzib

Good This is really awesome the only thing about it I can't get the pic in my library but love it

Toni Czec

Please fix update today caused app to force close as soon as you hit learn more. please fix.

Marcus Crawford

Loved it And still love it get it now take it from me

Jeremiah Alaban

Instagram issue I cant upload the final edit to instagram as moving to solve this issue?

Leonardo Bjork

No need to register you say The first thing you have to do is register and start an account or you cant use the app... why is that?

Rannell Guese

Hangs and crashes Attempting to view gifs I made causes app to crash. Was only able to send one out of three to myself via email, rest crash app when pic is selected. Wish it worked better because the one I was able to export was the source of much amusement

DWP-maws maws

Force closes When switching to front camera. Grrrr.

Natan Levy

Cool app but.. UI sucks and desin as well, looks and feels cheap.

Bethanie Carroll

Bethanie This will not show up with the camera at all. FIX IT NOW???????

Harry Warne

Why do i need to make an account?

Tamara Ellington

Good App This app is a good start. Still looking for something that resembles Flixel's living photo App. This app is more like a Gif creator.

Ryan Henson

Force close and Instagram issue Shuts down a lot and gifs not supported on instagram.

Brittney Sanderson

Not worth it, something is wrong with the app.

Hali xo

Keeps force closing Keeps force closing when I try to use the front facing cam. Pls fix. Samsung Galaxy Exhibit T-599N

Hockliscious Jackson

No front camera? App works great with the back camera, but as soon as I try to use the front facing camera, the app crashes immediately.

swapnil khare

This is cool ..

Zaid siddiqui

Fraudly charged my credit card. I saw the in app option to ugrade to full version by paying INR 99. I did that... My credit card was charged and i did not get any update. It just showed error updating. When i checked google play there was no option to upgrade for inr 99. Instead i had to buy the fotodanz+++ for INR 175 My question is why keep the inapp option of upgrading where there is no such update and misleadingly chargong credit cards. I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!

Peter Buss

This app sucks.. Every time it starts to process the animation, it stops working and I get the message, unfortunately fotodanz has stopped working. HTC one s... DO. NOT. DOWNLOAD.

Adam Bremner

Good fun I'm surprised at the amount of complaints on this. This is a simple fun app that makes cool pictures. It has glitched once but it reopened quickly. Good on notes 2 and 3.

Azrul Harith Abdullah

Instagram The apps was good. But i cant post on instagram as a video. Only as a photo. Plss fix it and make a new update. :(

geo iran zulita

ok 3 stars for now. please fix to include instagram for direct posting. thanks. looking forward for quick respond.

Ashley Wanta

Ehh. I think it looks really bad with the filters on. The animate option takes for-ever. So NO. And like it charged?? why?.

Yumi Chan

Direct sharing to Instagram & FB pls I will give more stars if the cinemagraph can upload to instragram and directly to fb and not a link. Pls fix

A Google User

Zero stars Paid for the app it does not work. I want money back

Al Vok

I paid for this app. Once I paid for this app and now it is free. I did not get what I paid for? What a trend now to make paid app free and to issue new one with fancy name like PRO SUPER PLUS +++ etc and sell it again. I think Google should delete such apps from Google Play

Lizzie c

Its ok So far i havent been able to edit a picture that I like.. the movement is to fast and it repeats too fast wish there was speed choices or repeat of the movement on and off choices.. also I cant download onto instagram or fb.... whats the point? Ugh

Nadine Hylton

It's pretty cool (since Android doesn't support the real version yet)... Please update it to where it can be added to Instagram! Real Flixels can!

Пользователь Google

Not bad Please delete sms send permission

Пользователь Google

Horizontal photo? Good! But, only vertical photos ( add rotation plz

Пользователь Google

Fun but please add device rotation support

Пользователь Google

Очень плохо. It forces you to create an account on their site.

Яна Шмагина

Cool That's amazing app. Must have!

Suh Chyuan Koh

Just a very basic app Lacks options to select size, unable to share to instagram, forces close most of the time, animation doesn't really work all the time.

Szabolcs Vranceanu

I create the fotodanz, and when I try to view my creation, the app freezes...

Antwon Christian

Not good at all Previews don't show. Can't upload to IG or save to gallery.

Chauncey Simmons

Just takes pictures now It stopped doing everything I downloaded the app for and just takes photos and that's it. Can't even edit it because it will lock up.

Guillaume Collic

Broken Did not work, no animation

Jeff Taylor

Stopped working Worked twice, then stopped animating

William Banks

Great app but has 1 problem It would be great if you could use videos that you have already recorded other than that it's very good.

A Google User

Can't log in Always say connection failed. I recommend developer to try again make it a new app with better interface, and better qlty and few extra options but focus on camera on pay app yes a free option with watermark and less options and ads, and can be save on different options so can be post on Instagram and Facebook, instead of the pain of web page maintaining, and maybe just Facebook, Instagram or Google plus accounts. They could try again now that can share short clips on those social sites.

Shaun Kirby

Boo Couldn't even get it to register a wink. Kept saying there was too much motion even if I stood still and had the camera sitting still on my desk. Booo

Kaj Te Briga

Couldn't really use it I opened the app and when I tried to switch to front camera it stopped working. It happend 2 more times after so I gave up.

Ryan Guthrie

Doesn't work Freezes every time. Don't waste your time.

Hockliscious Jackson

Decent app when it worked Had this app on my last phone and it worked on this new phone its REQUIRING me to register/login. After I type in all the required info, it says there's no connection/connectivity issue...but my connection is fine. Apparently others are having the same issue and the developer hasn't done anything to remedy it.

KneiL MigueL

It doesn't work on my Nexus 6! After applying the filters, that's it. It didn't show whether my picture is animated or not. I tried uninstalling then reinstall. Still the same result. Uninstall for good.

Calvin Lippert

Cannot log in to share Will not let me register. Says "No connection"... makes the app pointless if you can't share

Arun Khan

Massively Needs Improving The app is good in its function but is just Glitchy. I think the drawing tools need to be improved for the animation and I also cannot view my pics in the app and therefore have to save them to my gallery before I can see the outcome, which is a lengthy process just to see if the picture is good or not. Reduced to 2 stars as it just keeps crashing now

Samith Madushan

It doesn't work It worked for my old phone. But not working for Samsung I9305. It force close all the time.

Ryan Smith

Pix won't load After I capture my photo, nothing shows up in my gallery in Fotodanz.

Bob Calderon

Useless The app is lagging. And the image quality is too low.

jenell t

Cool app Unable to register( error message) so I could share the pic.

senor Bravo

Not working I just downloaded this app, I try to do some pics, and none is showing, it looks like they are saved but I can't open them, am I doing it wrong or is just the app that sucks?

NVision Philms

Doesn't work with note 5 Can't preview animation and doesn't save

Janice Chiang

App crashes when viewing pic What's the point of using this app when I can't even view the animated pictures that I took?!

Thomas Watts

3 attempts, 3 fails 2 first did not animate, 3rd crashed the app. Instant uninstall.

Justin Viktor

Crap Dosen't animate on galaxy tab S 10" .. uninstall

Theresa J

Can't view Can't see what you create, won't playback. And can't share on instagram.

Krupa S

Keeps freezing Ever time I use this app it freezes and sometimes and I have to force quit

Ian Dodd

Not working Doesn't work on my S7. Once it does I will change my rating :)


Did not work At all. I tried this app as I want my cinemagraphs to be saved as pictures, not video on Instagram. It did not work at all, I could not see the animation or anything.

Jonno Norton

Does not work Galaxy S7 Edge, it records then I can never see my video after it processes.

TTL Family

Would give 0 stars if possible. Horrible app! Must sign in or login. I did everything correctly but I can't use the app! Don't download! Read about it on Young Scientists but it's nothing like what they said. Totally disappointed! :-(

Alec Burrett

Don't waste your time... Doesn't work on S6. Crashes and displays a blank screen after recording.

Kenneth Baker

Freezes every time. I'm using the new Galaxy S7 Edge. It freezes every time. I have yet to make a successful pic with it.

Samantha Fairless

It works great to make gifs. Just circle the areas you want to keep the movement in. However I cant share anything to facebook. I keep trying and it say successful but it never shows up.

Angie Chloe Eng

Useless The app freezes when I try to save the photo. And it doesn't allow sharing of the photo on instagram

Joshua Josiah

Error After the latest update it wont animated n unsave also freeze. Fix it!

John Loh

No Preview It's ok. Just that there's no Preview to make amendments before saving. That means I have to save it to my gallery before confirming a successful picture. Will need to retake and 'guess' the outcome in general. Using on a Samsung Note 5.

Kam Chana

Doesn't even work Tried it out and it doesn't even work. Can't view the things I made and can't save to my gallery. S7 edge

Myles Scott

Upside down Image is flipped when I record. Can't be doing with that noise can we?
