Following the successful release of its 2-D/3-D animated messaging application for Facebook Messenger, PingTank officially released its stand-alone app for iOS users. With PingTank, users have access to hundreds of free animations (with associated sound effects), which can be placed on top of their images.
The PingTank app allows users to take new photos or upload images from their camera rolls. Users then browse the available animations, which are separated by category, and they can preview each before selecting their favorite. Users can add a description to the final product before sharing these short videos through Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, email, text or even the PingTank website (among other options).
In a statement, Jeremy Greene, founder and CEO of PingTank, commented on the app:
Sharing a photo is one thing; using PingTank is something different entirely. You can convey how you feel about whatever image you’ve captured, be funny or clever, show off your artsy or sarcastic side and let your personality shine through. Our animations are like emoticons come to life, and a whole new way to communicate with your friends.
PingTank’s stand-alone app is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store and is coming soon to Google Play. PingTank for Facebook Messenger has already proven to be successful, reportedly surpassing 100,000 monthly active users, with more than 25,000 videos being created each day.
