Editors’ Notes

Why let folks with design degrees have all the fun with GIFs? Whether you got an A in art or never advanced past stick figures, this intuitive tool lets you animate your doodles and share them both in-app and beyond. Whenever we felt stuck, we checked out our fellow users’ work for a creative spark.


I like it.~

Not a lot of controls, but keeps you focused on simplicity rather than brushes. The animating rather than drawing. Also, saves tons of phone space! And it’s free, so what more could I ask for? I really enjoy it, as maya would cost too much and be too complicated, and I like things simple. Not a detailed drawing app, but that’s not what I’m looking for. There are so few animating apps that are also free, I feel. This is the first animating app I’ve seen, in fact, although I probably am not very up-to-date. Nice and simple, and I am satisfied with the app!

Suggestion: The only thing is, the button names are out of the way, and some may consider them hidden. Must go to your animation specifically, touch the little gear, and it’s under the question mark.
Some people may like a tutorial, but personally I find things intuitive and easy to figure out, and I like figuring out stuff! <3
Everything is simple and effortless, and it doesn’t even require WiFi or an account, which is awesome! I mostly share things, too. :)

The ads are out of the way and very few.


good, but could be better

If you are a fan of the pixels look of flipnote studio on the dsi, you’ve come to the right place. Very simple, yet with enough skill and talent you can create extraordinary things. However, the program is not perfect. A big complaint is that there is no sound support :,(
It’s common for most free animation apps to not have sound support, but if you want people flocking to your app, you should at least have something like that. Another is the selection tool. It does its job, but I feel as if it should be like a lasso tool instead of the square. It’s a lot easier for being more precise with your selections. Other than that, I have no complaints bug-wise about the app. Just add these two things and you’ve got me hooked!
