Customer Reviews

I like it but...

I really want to love this app however there are a few issues. First the inability to define the projects final resolution, then there is the fact that you can't really make changes to the background easily (wanted to make a background in app so it wouldn't clash with the foreground). I would also love to be able to add more layers to the panel you're working on. Lastly and most importantly the fact that you can't copy and paste panels from one project to another is frustrating. I wanted to have a flash back from a different project in the one I'm currently working on but can't find a way to copy the previous panels. Still like it for animation though.


I try to animate and when I close out of the frame the frame gets deleted. And when I insert a photo and draw on it and close out of the animation the photo disappears and it only shows what I drew. Oh and why won't it let me erase part of the photo when I insert a photo? It won't even let me delete the frame with a inserted photo and if I inserted a photo and add a BLANK frame it won't be blank, it will be the photo I inserted.
EDIT : They fixed it... yay 5 stars
EDIT 2 : if you insert a photo and draw on it and close out of the animation, the photo will still disappear.


This app is bet out of all that I've downloaded. I finally found an app that I can use to download things on u tube with good details. I like the merging videos too. Thing is... When u merge the videos, the background does not change. So if you merge it with two videos with a background, then only one of the backgrounds stay. So I had to buy an app to merge videos. Otherwise swell app. I totes recommend this to anyone who likes animating.
