Fun, but not explained. At all.


I've been looking to animate for some time, and this is clearly the best choice for fellows such as I. But there's one issue. A LACK OF INSTRUCTIONS. There are so many questions I had the entire time whilst animating two different productions, such as deleting creations from your library. Many of the features here assist with making a smooth animation that is both easy to make and nice to look at. But I'm afraid due to my lack of understanding I have lost most of my patience and may delete this app soon. Apps like this have potential, but PLEASE. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. EXPLAIN THE FEATURES WELL. I bid you a good day or evening. Thank you for your time.

Ralph, I have a question?


So if the name is called stick nodes, What do you mean? Stick nodes. So you mean Stick Nodes like A Noob and you have a stick to animate. But I like it but why it have the “Stick Nodes Demon.” I had that when I was at Florida. Days like a sultionpolitlon (sultionpolitlon *Sound-a-pee-lition* means weird stuff) of this game it is weird. So if you have different stuff like pivot or drawing animate, Why do people do arts. And why do people do effects. Please answer this if you don’t want you don’t have to, Bye Ralph!

I need help!


I don’t know what to do in this app. It’s very confusing there’s no instructions or anything. I just don’t know what to do I think I need help! It’s so confusing and I have no idea how to add an extra stick person. All I need is some instructions in I’ll re-download the app until then I have deleted the app. I really hope that everything turns out OK for the future buyers but if you’re looking for something that you can use without instructions, Then this is the thing. I really hope that people in the future can use this app and not have a trouble I did. Please take my thought into consideration and add a instruction button. Thanks!
