Rotation screen

Add stuff make game better

Could you add a feature were you can turn the screen around zoom in and out they have this feature on flipaclip but I’d rather it be on this app it would help me out a lot when animating
When I do I have to do my drawings on a drawing app because your app doesn’t have this feature and could you add an a range of different pens that are free like a maker pen that makes smooth lines and the have a pallets were you can save color that would be so helpful thanks hi the app is really glitchy when I try importing videos it freezes up and when I import pictures they don’t appear

Great but one thing

reveiw from a guy

Love the app but there is one thing it is very hard to get from project to project when u have a lot so if it was easier that would help a load but apart from that amazing app, it occasionally crashes if u could fix that it would be amazing also it would be cool if there was a way to write stuff in it apart from that amazing app thx

Hi there, thanks for the good review and great suggestion! The idea has been forwarded to team :) Happy Animating!



I’ve used simple and very complicated animation apps and programs and wanted something good for my iPad Pro. I can’t figure out how to stop paying monthly and trying to animate in the app was highly frustrating. As a professional animator I was irritated by this app so I do not recommend this app to any beginners either until this app makes some major changes. Now looking for a new animation app on the iPad and try to sort out how to stop paying for this one. 😡
