My thanks to Echograph for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed. Echograph is a fun app for the iPhone and iPad that allows you to create photos containing splashes of video. You start with a still frame from a video clip, then use Echograph to selectively paint animation into the photo. The result: an infinitely looping image that you can export as a high-res MP4 or share directly to Twitter and Facebook. Or as Wired called it, Echograph is the “Instagram of animated GIFs”.

It’s a universal app, and the latest update brings full support for the iPhone 5. Normally $2.99, it’s on sale today for just $.99. One buck.
