About & Pics

Description

Pictophile is an app that specializes in the sharing of funny/entertaining photos and GIFs. And maybe a few videos here and there.

We help maintain a community that enjoys creating and sharing content for others' amusement.

Oh my goodness has this app got it all. Check out the long list of image/gif/video builders that let you caption, edit, customize, and build some of the greatest things your imagination can come up with.

Once you are done using the builder, you can upload your creation for the world to see and comment on.

 $1.99 in iOS App Store

Version 3.13.1

A lot has changed and I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy it.

Scrolling left and right to browse memes on the home page was fun, but it just wasn't typical. So I changed it to a vertical layout.
Memes on Popular are sorted by dates thanks to the vertical layout.
Uploader usernames appear on thumbnails under feeds with people you follow.
A little badge will appear on the bottom home screen for unseen notifications.
You can take your thumb now and swipe from left to right to open the side drawer to select feeds.
You can trim the start and end length of any videos you select in the app.
Share to Instagram was all messed up, now it resizes and uses the least possible amount of whitespace.
Gifs will auto play in camera roll as you go to select them in the photo picker.
Can now use the camera in the app to take photos/videos and make memes out of them without leaving the app.
The builders dubbed "Templates" accept both videos and images. It didn't make sense to have two separate tools for each format.
You can upload your memes to your account straight from the builder screens after you generate them.
I updated my rating for Lexington. It is no longer a 7 out of 10 place to live, work and lern. Now it's a 6 for unnamed reasons.

Doot sound when you get a notification - if you have notification sounds enabled.
