Ubersnap, the animated spin on Instagram, delivers GIFs you can make and share in a snap. Best of all, after making your creation, you can have it printed as a moving hologram (which are still super cool, by the way).

The Singapore-based app allows users to take several pictures, which are then woven together to create a GIF. After that, users can apply filters and the finished product is placed on their followers' feeds. Ubersnap customers who are feeling extra-proud of their creations can order prints that will be delivered right to their home. As the company describes it, the animated prints come to life as they are tilted up and down, similarly to the way photographs work in the wizard world of Harry Potter.

"There's something special about holding a photo print in your hands and we wanted to capture that experience for GIFs," Ubersnap founder Boon Chin told us in an e-mail. "I think it's especially timely, given that GIFs have become such a popular form of communication."

You can download the app right here for iOS. Use the code "mentalfloss" on your first print and you can get $5 off on us.
