Video apps are definitely nothing new, but Instagram adds an all-new element to how we capture our memories with Boomerang. The quirky app lets you film your friends antics and puts a funny spin on it through a back and forth motion. Say you shot your friend jumping into the pool, with the click of a button you can transform them jumping in and out of the water in a loop-like format.

These high-quality mini-videos can be captured in portrait or landscape, and shared on your Instagram feed – through the clever handiwork of looping videos and Hyperlapse. Boomerang will automatically save to your camera roll so you won’t lose any potential experimental work. Make sure to check out the clip below.

While you’re getting the hang of this new app check out the 5 most popular Instagram photos of all time.
