Ratings and Reviews
Good… if it was a beta.
Good in concept and promising in layout but massively lacks variety in items and is very glitchy. Cmd+Z doesn’t work! How can you do anything creative without Cmd+z! I’m having to close and relaunch the programme often just to get through one small storyboard. I would be interested to know if this is still being improved as if this is the final product I would be very disappointed. Would do for a one-of small project where someone didn’t want to buy any software, but expect to be ferquently smashing your head off your keyboard.
It’s really difficult to resize things bigger than the frame your given, which you need to do for close-ups. Also occasionally it won’t undo anything or let you select something you’ve added to move it or change the size. It’s just not great and very overpriced for what it is capable of.
Where are BASIC features?
Had high hopes for this app - but lacks basic features like PRINT (in menu, doesn't work), export as PDF (only as 'Movie' - why would I want that? I'm pitching the movie!) and even deleting a cell is an abnormal process, the delete key does nothing. I really hope there'll be a proper version soon.
