Have you ever fancied having an animated GIF as your BBM or Facebook profile picture? That, plus more, can now be done all from your BlackBerry 10 smartphone thanks to Prophet Camera. 

The application is so easy to use and ending up with the finished product can take well under 30 seconds. Once you open up the app you are presented with a few options which you can alter. These include the frame frequency, picture size, total frames, shutter sound, sepia effect and auto-reverse. 

Once you are happy with the above settings it's just a case of touching the 'Take a Picture' tab at the top of the display. The camera will then fire up (you can choose front or rear) and its just a case of touching the screen. If the item you are taking a photo of is static you'll want to move the camera back and fourth a wee bit to get the animated effect. The final result will then be displayed on your screen where you have the option to share it via any accounts in your BlackBerry Hub. In addition you can jump into the menu and set the GIF as the picture for the following - Contact, BBM, Wallpaper, Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook. 

And here's the best news - the app is free and available for all BlackBerry 10 devices. A simple concept but one that works so well. Go and grab it and have some fun.
