Editors' Notes

Make beautiful animated movies.

Bring back the audio save feature!


I love this app it's what i do all my stop motions on before I upload them to YouTube,But the new update has been for the worse,before the update if I recorded a sound I'd be able to access it again on one of the tabs....say I recorded a person running I could go to the tab and it would have all the sounds that I'd recorded,so if i made someone run again I could use that sound,but now there's no tab for that so id have to record the same sound over and over because in this update it doesn't save your sound,stop motion is an already tedious art but now i also have to keep recording the same sound because the tab where it automatically saves is gone😡

Free app is useless


I downloaded the free app because it had better features than other free animation apps. However it turns out that you have to pay for every single one of these “amazing features.” I wasn’t expecting the free version to be as good as the pro version, but I expected better than this. All I can do is put a series of frames together, which is less than most other apps.

I am not saying this is a bad app; I am considering paying for the full version. However the free version is completely rubbish. As far as I can see, the only point of the free app is to trick people into paying more money to buy each feature individually.

My advice is don't waste your time with the free version. If you want to use all the features, buy the full app.
