LBGIFImage is an easy and efficient way to display animated GIF images. It's based on the ImageIO.framework which makes it fast and lightweight.


  1. Drag the LBGIFImage folder into your project.
  2. Import the ImageIO.framework.


NSData* data = [NSData dataWithContentsOfFile:[[NSBundle mainBundle] pathForResource:@"image" ofType:@"gif"]];
UIImage* image = [UIImage animatedGIFWithData:data];
