If you prefer the Antenna Reddit client over the default app from the service itself, then you’re probably familiar with the fact that it lacks a way to download animated GIF images when viewing them from the app. New Cydia tweak fixes it by allowing to download GIFs from the Antenna Reddit client app on your jailbroken device.
How To Download GIFs From The Antenna Reddit Client App
AntennaGIFDL offers a way to download animated GIF images from the Antenna app straight to your device’s Camera Roll. So to get this ability go to Cydia’s BigBoss repository and download AntennaGIFDL tweak for free. If you’re not already using it the Antenna Reddit client app is a free download from the App Store.
AntennaGIFDL doesn’t have any options to configure, so after you install it, you can use the tweak right away. Now you will be able to load any GIF in the Antenna Reddit client app that you would normally load by simply clicking on the GIF to enter full-screen mode. When you do, you can tap and hold on the GIF for approximately 5 seconds and a Save GIF button will appear:
When you hit the button, you might see a prompt to let Antenna access your Photos, as it needs access to save the GIF there. Once you allow access, if you were asked, the GIF will be saved to your Camera Roll as an MP4 video file without sound:
Granted the file isn’t saved as a GIF file like it’s displayed in on the Reddit site, you now have a downloaded offline version of the GIF, that means you can view and enjoy it at your discretion.
AntennaGIFDL tweak supports both iOS 9 and iOS 10 devices that have been jailbroken. So if you were brave and jailbroke your iOS 10 device then you can try this tweak.
