Don't you sometimes wish you could send a GIF instead of an emoji to your friend? Like why use words (or emojis) if a moving image perfectly conveys your message? Today's your lucky day, because there's an app for that. You can now download a GIF keyboard into your phone and reply with GIFs to your heart's content. Don't think you need one? Well, we went ahead and thought of 5 situations where a GIF > an emoji.

1. When your boyfriend thinks it's okay to ditch you and your fandom for the gym. Hello?!

Like, he'll totally scroll over that last message, right? Right???

3. When you're getting ready for a date and who has time to reply to a text?

She'll understand. Deets later, girl.

4. When you've already missed curfew, but you'll get #FOMO for sure if you leave earlier than the rest of your friends.

If your pleading eyes don't work, maybe Puss in Boots's will?

5. When boredom equals a trip to the mall.

Because retail is the best kind of therapy.

The GIF keyboard is currently available for download from the App Store. Your device needs to be updated to iOS8 for it to work!
