    Have you noticed that some animated gifs display (and animate) on iPhone's safari, but others do not?

    I was trying to experiment with different animated radars that are available, and any that were bigger than a certain size or had more frames of animation would just display as a static image on the iphone.

    Do you see the same thing?

    Here are a couple examples of gif movies I found about black holes:

    This first one animates on my iphone:

    This one must be more frames, or bigger, because it does NOT animate on my iphone:

    I wonder what the exact limits are?

    Of your two links the first one stays animated but the second one animates about 6 frames then stops.

    I've noticed the same thing in my own experiences, the first few frames animate then it pauses. Even on a WIFI connection. It's ashame because I do a lot of animated .gif work that I would like to show people when I'm not near a computer. Although the animated gif of the phone at the top of this page doesn't animate at all on my iPhone.

    Unfortunately I don't have a solution. Lets hope we get an updated firmware or 3rd party mod to fix this.
