JOBY has debuted a free iPhone 4 camera app that easily creates and shares stop motion videos.

So if you were thinking of trying to bring Gumby back with a reboot, now would be a good time.


The app, Frame X Frame is an all-in-one app for snapping and sharing great pictures. The creators hope that it will lead to new creative approaches for capturing distinctive videos with the iPhone. JOBY’s first iPhone app, Gorillacam, has been downloaded more than 2.5 million times from the Apple iTunes store.

Frame X Frame is available for free download from the iTunes App Store now.

To celebrate the release of Frame X Frame, JOBY has kicked off a “Stop Motion Addict” contest on YouTube that began on May 3rd.
