Playing around with Cinemagram's moving photo feature is pretty darn fun, but it comes at a cost: effort. Unlike publishing a Vine or an Instagram video, you need to think about it; what part of this photo do you want to animate? Did you map out the moving area correctly? It's a lot of work. Well, it used to be. The app's latest iOS update takes all the guesswork out of creativity, adding a new camera mode that automatically creates Cinemagrams without your input. Presumably, the update will make it easier to snap and share moving pictures on the fly, giving you a reason to pick it over its competitors. The update gives users the ability to add captions to Cines as well as the ability to share to Pinterest -- unfortunately, the app hasn't automated that just yet.
