I know CM Roms are capable of displaying animated GIFs, any other Roms out there have it? BBv1.1 doesn't seem to work.
I was curious about the other Roms because I'm a weather geek and most Radar images are animated GIFs. I was amazed that Android didn't have animated GIFs when I got my Droid. I'd been using WinMo for ages and they always worked in it. Even a Motor Razr could display them. It was awesome when I discovered that they were working in a CM Rom I was trying. I did a double take when I checked the Radar and it went into motion! There are many complaints about it on Google's development site, and the developers acted like it was going to be really hard to implement it in Android. I'm just glad someone figured it out!!!
If it's only for weather, then why not use an app like weatherbug. I use their elite edition and it has a nice map feature that's animated. On another note, an app that is available in the market that plays gifs that you put on your memory card works pretty good. It's Image Viewer(with animation). It does cost .99 but works pretty good.
