What’s New

This update brings better GIF quality, and solves important issues.

BETTER GIF
Legend can export your creations either as an animated GIF (typically for Messages), or as a video (typically for Instagram or WhatsApp). We’ve worked hard to improve the quality of the GIF you can save and share, we hope you’ll be able to see the difference!

ISSUES SOLVED
– when picking a video as background for your Legend, you could only get the first suggested animation style… this frustrating bug has been squashed.
– trying to search for images without Internet connectivity – typically in Airplane mode – would crash the app… not anymore.

Thank you all for your feedback! We noticed some people feel like Legend only has 6 animation styles. There are many more than that, but we only display the 6 that work best with your text. We’re currently working on making it easier to select any of the available animation styles – it will be in a next update!
