What's New in Version 3.4

Animation Desk Premium has gone Classic!

Over the past 6 years, Animation Desk has been a great companion to both professional and amateur animators, and has become an inseparable part of their animation lives.

As part of our product line strategies, we have given this version of Animation Desk a new name - Animation Desk Classic, to continue providing you the best-quality animation app.

In this update, we have improved stability and fixed the issue where layer shifts slightly towards the left when using onion skin.

Customer Reviews


I don't think they support this app anymore
After paying money for one year subscription
I thought things will be better , but I was wrong
Even if I logged into the account it wouldn't give me the features they claim they offer. If you are looking for something professional, this is NOT the app for you. It brought me so much disappointment as I had asked for a refund for the brushes that I paid for and never got, but they gave me no reply till this day. I really hope that Apple would do something about it as the app developers are remaining irresponsive. If their app is still on the App Store, they must be paying money for Apple on an annual basis to keep it there. So, the app is not forsaken, and hence I ask apple for help as soon as possible.


2/1/17 - Watch Out! This app may end up like the iPhone version - That version is now a PDF app. I found this out after updating this one. I have over 200 apps and many of them are no longer in existence even though they show on the iTunes desktop. I don't know if there's a reason for this other than to make more money.

Best Animation App on the Market

This is the best, most easy to use, high quality app for animation i've ever used. I 100% recommend this app to any young animators, or animators on a very small budget.
