The Momento app is a fun and captivating way to keep one's camera roll organized. The app automatically turns similar photos within a user's smartphone camera into animated GIFs that can easily be shared through Facebook Messenger.

Smartphone cameras are so convenient that users often end up taking many pictures of the same subject -- for instance, a cute kitten might bring about dozens of photos that are only slightly different from one another. The Momento app uses machine learning to automatically recognize the similarities between these kitten pictures. It then combines them into a GIF that gets stored in the app's grid.

Beyond applying the Momento app to pictures a user just took, the app will automatically dig through a user's camera roll and create GIFs of old picture sets.
