Just yesterday, Microsoft detailed some changes coming to Cinemagraph's backend through OneDrive and today, that updated app is now available. Labeled as Lumia Cinemagraph Beta, the app can be downloaded through the Store though currently the link is not searchable (so you need the app's direct link, found below).
The biggest changes in this version affect how you share Cinemagraphs detailed in the Beta release notes.
Certainly this makes taking and sharing Cinemagraphs much easier without the Nokia account.
For those who have never used Cinemagraph, the app creates an animated GIF like file using your Lumia's camera. They are perfect for capturing moments where part of the image is static, and something else is moving, creating a mini-looping video file.
Grab the beta version of Cinemagraph and remember to leave them feedback to help improve the app for its final release.
