Have a question?
We love your questions! The GIF IT UP! app does support landscape mode and auto-detects orientation. You can pair your phone to cast to nearby devices. This is a great way to play with friends! We have mirrored the application using Chromecast and are working on an extension specifically for Chromecast.

Quick question @creator, will the app support landscape mode? And will it have Chromecast support?
Thanks for the great idea. We'll take it into consideration for future release.
@creator, cheers for the reply, that's all brilliant news then! Also I have a suggestion for possible expansion or a later edition, and that would be to have the caption cards be within the app also. With the gif being displayed on either a separate device, or displayed on every players device (the players creating there own game with a unique party code/qr code, the captions being displayed on one half of the display, and the gif on the other) this will make having gif it up games much easier to set up without preparation or the need to carry anything else on you other than your smart phones. I will certainly look up for possible digital card apps in order to expand on the caption options.
That's a great question and is discussed on the Campaign page. This is a core part of the vision for GIF IT UP! - random GIFs for an ever-changing experience.
GIFs are drawn using the GIPHY API and are not pre-selected by the team, rather they are pulled dynamically from an ever-growing database. There are no limitations on the number of GIFS available through the application itself - this keeps the game fresh!
The application will be continued to be supported on an ongoing basis for patches and updates as/if required. Our plan is to release the app (iOS and Android) with the game, for delivery once the campaign ends.
A question on the app that will be released, will there be a build before the end of the campaign? Will gifs be from other sources such as 'Giphy' and 'Imgur' and not selected by yourselves? Will gifs be unlimited and not need to rely on you updating the app itself to increase the number of gifs available?
Congratulations on the successful funding!
Cant wait to get this, looks like so much fun!
@Creator, will there be any reduction of the shipping costs? for UK shipping the cost of P&P is more than the product itself. For a card game, it does mean the sum total is very expensive.
Thanks for your comment! GIF IT UP! is a lot of fun!
We worked with our shipping company to find the best prices for national and international shipping. To compensate and still deliver worldwide, we reduced the price of the Kickstarter pledge for our backers.
We hope that you continue to support our project.
It looks like a fun game but man shipping seems really high. Will have to think on whether I want to keep this pledge or not.
