The app does not show up in the menu bar

macOS hides menu bar apps when there is no space left in the menu bar. This is a common problem on MacBooks with a notch. Try quitting some other menu bar apps to free up space. If this does not solve it, try quitting Bartender if you have it installed.

Can you localize the app into my language?

I don’t plan to localize the app.

Where can I find the changelog?

Go here and click “Version History”.

Why the name “Jiffy”?

Some people incorrectly pronounce GIF as “Jif”. The name is a pun on that. Also, “Jiffy” means to do something fast, which is what the app is all about.

Why is this free without ads?

I just enjoy making apps. Consider leaving a nice review on the App Store.
