Can't record audio!?!

I was happy to get this on iPad to use as a creative educational tool with kids groups I am a part of. I was shocked when I started using it and realized it couldn't record audio clips for narration! A real let down and glaring omission.

Not that useful

Great interface and great idea. The lack of ability to add an image sequence from camera roll really is the deal breaker for me. It's such a simple thing to incorporate. I should be able to take a time-lapse with a gopro or any camera for that matter and load it into the ipad using the camera connection kit. Then I should be able to load the image sequence into this app and build my time-lapse. Tying up my phone for an hour or more is not convenient. I really want to use this app because I love the interface and the customer support. I emailed them asking about this feature and they got right back to me on it even if it was not the answer I was hoping for. When this app adds the ability to load images from camera roll I will change my rating and review.

Only for iPad 2

Companies need to make it clearer when software won't run on iPad 1. I bought it, then realized I couldn't run it. I know it was in the small print requirements, but I didn't look there. I suggest that the name of the app be iStopMotion for iPad 2, just to make sure people (like me) don't make a mistake. Love the software on the Mac, wish I could use it with my iPad 1 and iPhone 4.
