So much fun, ruined by bug.

This is one of my favorite apps for iPad Pro. I love making animations and, when it works, the software is very charming and appealing. However, at this time about 2 out of every 3 animations I create are effected by a bug that causes the some of the frames in the animation to appear incorrectly. Usually they appear as though they are in a previous state. It looks like I selected one or 2 frames and un-did the last several drawing marks. When I select edit the frames look as intended, but when I select done and watch the animation, the frames appear modified. It even exports the .psd files with the frames altered. I have the 6 month paid subscription, which I paid for not for the extra features, but in hopes it would make the bugs go away. I wanted to stick with it and wait for the bugs to be gone, but it is extremely frustrating to spend an hour or 2 on an animation, only to have no way to save or share or view my final animation as it is intended to look. I will not be renewing the paid subscription, and I will likely cease using the app. Which is real bummer. It’s so fun when it works.

Get Animation Desk Ultimate instead.

I saw Animatic featured in a Skillshare class and decided to try it. It was enjoyable until a pop-up screen told me certain features had to be paid for (which is fine) and that the only way to pay for them is through a subscription (which is NOT fine)! I'd be willing to purchase the app's "advanced" features for a one-time fee, or would even be tempted to opt into a subscription if cloud storage was included. However, since Animatic had neither of those options, into the virtual rubbish bin it went. I don't subscribe to a magazine just to read the same 3 articles over and over again which each new issue, so why would I subscribe to an app?

Right, so then I decided to Google ios animation apps and found Animation Desk Ultimate, an app that requires a one time fee to purchase, no subscriptions to operate (although has its own optional Cloud Storage subscription), and has more features than Animatic such as LAYERS and the ability to add an audio track. So, if you want to get an animation app that's actually worth your time that allows you to "animate on the train", get Animation Desk Ultimate instead.
