*** Blink has over 1 million downloads!! Thanks for your support! ***

With Blink for Windows Phone 8, you'll never miss the best shot or the action. Blink captures a burst of images before you even press the shutter, and continues to capture pictures after you've taken your shot. Save and share the shot you like best.  And better yet, save a short animated Blink and share it to Facebook, Twitter, OneDrive or 

With Blink, a few simple finger swipes lets you find the perfect shot, and create a short animated Blink to share with your friends or the world. 

New! Version 2.4
- Fresh new look: New branding and refreshed UI elements throughout the app.
- Dual Modes: Switch easily between two modes - Blink mode to edit and share your animations, and still mode to save and share the perfect shot.
- Focus Lock: Tap on the screen to lock focus in that the region. That region will always remain in focus even across phone movements. Tap again to unlock.
- Improved stabilization: Even better video stabilization so that your Blinks play without any camera shake or jitter.
- Live Tile: Pin Blink to the start screen and see your perfect shots on the live Tile. (Note: might require a phone reboot or a unpin/re-pin for live tile to start showing.)
- My Blinks: A new gallery view in the Blink roll to quickly jump among captured Blinks.
- Tutorial: An interactive tutorial is included to quickly get you going.
- Orientation lock: Bug fix to orient Blinks correctly on sharing, under orientation lock.

Version 2.3
- Fix for Nokia Lumia 1520 phones

Version 2.2

    Great so to create short animations! I would love to have the option to not have it play the games backwards, more like a GIF. Also you can't share your animations unless you sign up with Microsoft's service which I think is poor.
