Customer Reviews

It's okay, I guess...

It's not a bad app, it's just really ugly. It kinda reminds me of the early iPhone apps that come with the phone. You know? They would be really detailed trying to look fancy but in reality it just made it look cheesy. The only example I can give you off the top of my head would be the old Notes app, where it looked like a notepad and the font looked like handwriting. It might seem cool on the surface but after a while it gets distracting. This app unfortunately has the same issue, where the setup looks like an actual art studio. Now, sure, that would be cool, if it wasn't crazy distracting and hard to touch! Look, I get it, you're a folder, but you don't have to be so impossible to get to!

Then there's my biggest issue: I CAN'T SAVE.

Well no, scratch that, I can; but in doing so I have to sign into this weird shady looking thingy like- WHO CARES. I JUST WANT TO ANIMATE. GEEZ!!!

But hey, I expected worse from a free app.

My advise? Change how it looks, make it looks more professional. Just saying.



Don't waste your time.

Apparently I had been using this app for about three days for my school project. We had little time to do it so I had to spend every hour of my day on it.

While animating, I noticed that it was quite laggy, I decided that it was just a small bug, and that I did not have time to find another app.

Well, guess what? The night before my project was due, I was finishing up, when... Well... the frame that I was working on, went blank. My screen froze for a second. I went back on the last frame and noticed it was gone too! I replayed my whole animation and all of it was blank. I tried pressing the undo but nothing working. MY FREAKING PROJECT WAS ALL FREAKING GONE. 😡

I then had to explain to my teacher what happened. Fortunately, she believed me. Although that one assignment is still missing!

No sound?

It a good app with very interesting features, but for some reason it's not letting me put sound over my animations? The interface is a tad tricky and I wish there were more tools but all in all a pretty good app. Also, it lags a lot, so that may be something to fix in the future.
