Good but bad

I had this game for ages and I thought it was a great game since the game was glitched and I couldn’t make it work I tried deleting it again and again but it didn’t work and I also spent £10 on a game that didn’t work I would give it 4/10.

Great app

This is a great, easy to use app that allows you to make stop motion animations. The app has a quality home menu that looks similar to IMovie's home menu. You can take pictures with the front or back camera and you can even wirelessly connect it to a iPhone and take pictures on that which will be sent to the iPad instantly. You can change frame rates per second, duplicate and delete individual frames and you can have onion skinning turned on which is a really helpful thing to use.

You can add a sound track once you are finished and then save it to the camera roll. If you want to do lip syncing for your movie I recommend buying IMovie for IPad. This way you can take the stop motion film out of camera roll and put it into IMovie where you can add your own recorded voice, fx and more.

Overall, it is a great app and probably the best stop motion app for IPad.

This is a great app. Me and my 4 year old son have spent a happy afternoon animating his Lego figures with reasonably impressive results for our first go. Will be making more detailed films next I'm sure. The App works brilliantly, simple but very effective. Have also got the remote camera app for the iPhone which also works perfectly and means you don't have to worry about keeping the camera still while you operate the other controls. Think some of the time lapse stuff also looks like fun and could produce some cool effects. If you have any desire to create some animations then this is the app you need!
