Core Animator is simply the easiest and best way to use native Core frameworks for the animations in you apps. Now a graphic designer or animator can work visually on animated elements and can hand it off to the developer who can get all the code exported in a clear and easily integrable manner. No more large, non-interactive video files or other workarounds. Native animations run rock solid and butter smooth on iOS devices or the Mac.

Fine app except PNG export is broken

I bought this app specifically to create PNG exports of my animations, so I was disappointed to find the exported images frequently have repeat images in place of the proper frames (leading to a glitched, jerky animation). This happened with the walk tutorial project but also a basic animation I made from scratch (24 fps export). I requested a refund for this reason.

Otherwise, the application seems easy to learn and use (other than the timeline interface being clunky in places and a scarcity of keyboard shortcuts). If the PNG export had worked correctly, I would've been happy enough with the app (especially given the price).

Decent Stuff

It has only basic tools and functions, but on the flip side, it is extremely easy to use and a good price for what you get.

No Obj-C export..

Despite the advertisted ability to export in Obj-C or Swift there is currently not the option in V 1.5.2 to do this.

*Contacted support and got no reply

*In the FAQ section other users have asked about the same problem and also gotten no reply

*The sample projects are not included but are available on the website

*I understand if this application was designed for Swift only but the main reason I bought it was for Obj-C export, and due to the lack of support on the issue and the applications functionality as advertised I have to give it one star.
