We are sorry for any inconvenience. We are working on this and it should be available around the beginning of November. Please stay tuned.

Seems broken


It is impossible to import an image file into a layer. Currently, one can import from the Photos library, but the app crashes.

Would be more useful if this were fixed, and add iCloud drive image file import.

Developer Response

Hello, We are sorry for the inconvenience caused. Can you email us at and tell us your iOS version and the hardware model to help us look into the issue? Thank you.

I love it so much but


Bad stuff IS : It’s true the app does crash badly sometimes.

Suggestions: I really wish you could highlight a character that’s drawn on a layer and then just move it and take another frame rather than using the stamp every time.
It would be cool if you could import a video into it that could go w it. Or if you could draw frames on an actual video so you could combine the two would be so damn cool.

Good stuff IS : It exports in really good quality. Like really good. For me anyway. Love it.

Developer Response

Hello, thank you for the feedback. We have put in mind about your suggestion on the scissor tool. Good news is that you can choose to import "video" when starting a new sequence, and the app will break the video into frames. Here is a tutorial for how to import videos:
