Gfycat acquires GIF Brewery, Mac app goes free and gains new sharing features | 9to5Mac
GIF Brewery was one of my favorite macOS apps, it would let convert a movie into an animated GIF with lots of options. It wasn't the cheapest app in the world sitting at $4.99 but it was a great utility to have around.
Gfycat has recently acquired and renamed the app to "GIF Brewery by Gfycat" and is now offering it for free. Gfycat has been rapidly growing, it's short video platform has may video sharing tools which will now be integrated with the app.
It looks as if GIF Brewery is evolving from an app to a service.
