GIFwrapped

The iOS app for collecting and sharing
GIFs right from your iPhone or iPad.

How do I save GIFs to my Photos library?

This is something that a lot of people ask about! As it turns out, there's a couple of ways to do it, you just have to know where to look.

Alternatively, you can:

You may be presented with an alert, requesting access to be able to add images to your Photos. You will need to allow this by selecting "OK", otherwise saving images will fail (and you won't be asked again, it'll just fail). You can change this access at any time within the GIFwrapped section of Settings.app.

Don't forget, though: in iOS 10 and earlier, the Photos app doesn't support displaying animated GIFs. As long as it's in there, the preview will be boring and static, but you'll find that it should share just fine (as long as the app you're sharing to supports animated GIFs).
