telecastapp:

We’re about to change in a big way. As I write this e-mail, our team is flipping the switch on a new vision for our product (and a brand new version of the Telecast iOS app).

We’ve spent the past four months talking to video makers with passionate followings, and found that their fans are…

GIFs on Facebook.
Wait. GIFs on Facebook?!
We did it. GIFs on Facebook! Giphy’s got all the GIFs and now you can share them with your friends on Facebook. You can embed them right onto your timeline from our site.
Not sure how to feel? That’s why we created the GIF Reaction Page. So go ahead and try it out!
Man, remember yesterday, when you couldn’t post GIFs on Facebook? Nope, we can’t either.

As if you couldn’t be MORE psyched that it’s Friday — Giphy has some exciting news!
We’re proud to announce the launch of Giphy Labs, a playground for our engineering team and friends, and the Giphy API that makes it all possible.
What does this mean to the everyday Giphy user? Simply put: now that we have all these searchable GIFs at our fingertips, we’d like to do something cool with them. Utilizing the Giphy API makes it possible to take our database of GIFs and translate that into apps, games, hacks and…well, the sky’s the limit.
Our Giphy Memory game is a perfect example! It takes a childhood favorite and revamps it using sampling of our most popular GIF categories. Team Giphy has already spent hours playing it, and now we want you to join in the fun!
We’ll be unveiling more Giphy Labs projects in the coming weeks, so keep a close watch on this Tumblr page. But until then, have fun exploring the site…and we want to see what you come up with using the API, too!

I love the simplistic, beautiful onboarding experiences that betaworks creates for its apps.  The screenshots above are from the first time you open the new Dots game betaworks released.  The intro experience for Tapestry was really enjoyable too.
