PHHHOTO is a new app for iPhone and Android (yet to be introduced). The app captures anything in motion, from walking down a street to eating an ice cream- it brings everything to life. The app recently launched and so far celebrities like Katy Perry and Diplo have joined in the fun. PHHHOTO was built by HYPERHYPER, a Brooklyn- and L.A.- based design and technology studio, the app functions similar to Instagram but it gives users the choice of uploading a still picture or a video made from images  snapped from a camera’s burst function. The images are then transformed into looping GIFs. 

In all, PHHHOTO is the love child of Vine and Instagram.
