The desktop version of PopKey sits in your menu bar — I’m using it on the Mac, but there is also a Windows version — and as you click on the magenta octopus icon, the app interface drops down to show you a grid of the latest Trending and Featured GIF animations.
You can move the slider down to browse for the perfect GIF. For a specific GIF, you can input search terms and right-click to save the image locally. A favorite function will roll out shortly, according to the developer.
Clicking on a GIF copies its URL so you can view it on a separate page, while the share icon lets you post it to Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest or Google+. It also shows you similar animations in case you see something you like better.
The grid sits on top of your open apps for a full view as long as you have it clicked, and then neatly tucks back into itself after you’ve been properly distracted.
