Great app; missing a few features

This app makes it really easy to make flip books. No real drawing skill necessary. However, if you plan to put any time into your drawings, you should know ahead of time that a few key features are missing that you will find frustrating.

First, the app lets you pick any color from the color wheel your heart desires. However, it will only save your 4 most recent colors. Plan to use more than that and you'll find yourself in a bit of a pickle. You can write down the color's reference # but you can't actually type these in- so trying to get the exact one again is quite difficult.

Second, there is no way to insert a slide. So, if in the course of your flip book you realize it needs another slide to make the motion smoother or you want to alter the plot a bit, you either have to forgo this hope or erase all the slides after the point you'd like the new one. Be careful! This means a lot of work lost!

Other features that would be helpful: a redo button, a cut and paste option within and between slides, and a paste option for photos etc. outside of the app (not just as a background).

This was the 1st flip book app I tried. Again, it's an easy app to use, but if you're serious, you might want to shop around for some other features.

If you're planning to try the free version first, know that you are limited to 30 slides and you can't import your work into the paid version.

Sick and Tired of Developer Crookedness!

Almost every application that I have ever downloaded and opened, always immediately pops a notification window asking, "Do You Want To Allow Push Notifications From This App?" And, never once have I allowed the notifications for any application. And in regards to Animator, I denied the Push Notifications as well.

But, this developer, like so many others. Believe that user choice and rights, amount to nothing of consequence in their mind. I deny the Push Notification, and this developer codes and rigs his app, so that these pointless, annoying, ad-like, nagging notifications, still show up on my device. I haven't read the Terms Of Service that you have to agree to as a developer on the Apple App Store. But, I would be willing to bet a great sum of money, that engineering your app to override the users choice of turning off the Push Notifications, is strictly forbidden and against Apple's policy. That is the issue with crooked developers, though. They just do not think that the rules apply to them, that they are somehow special, and exempt.

If you update this app and turn off your crooked garbage coding for the notifications, well, I may revise my rating and review. Until that happens, though, this application and developer, deserve ZERO stars in my book.

Great Animation App

The is a great animation app that works smooth and easy. I use on my iPhone and it gets the job done. I do not have a problem with saving, crashes or using the tools. To me, it is meant to do quick 2 to 3 minute ideas for a song or quirky art piece. I'm not sure if the expectation should be for professional broadcast material, although, stringing several ideas together would make for great entertainment.

Three things that would make it the best app out there would be:
1. Change the background photo for individual slides so you can change a scene or setting.
2. Audio track or recording capability to add dialogue to a project during playback.
3. Able to upload video as background and draw over it. A minimal of 30 to 60 seconds of video would be enough.

I would pay to have those features added. Other than that, it is still a perfect tool for creating animations.
