Instagram's photo editing application competitior VSCO has announced their own GIF creation app called DSCO (pronounced as disco) to battle off the former's Boomerang. VSCO is known to be the preferred choice for serious mobile photographers and now gives their users the possibility to create brief, looping GIF images which can be shared to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and even Instagram.

As GIF is becoming a very popular format which prompted Instagram and now VSCO to provide it to users.
