Freaking amazing

I downloaded this a while back and immediately disregarded it because I was stupid at the time... didn't try it long enough to give it a chance. I recently downloaded it again because I was a little dissatisfied with Sketchbook Move and HOLY SH*T.... playing around with this app made me realize how powerful this app is. You've got flash animation on an iPad and vector capabilities of Illustrator.

This App is severely underrated and I'm surprised not a lot of people have rated or used it all this time.


Using this app a lot now, there's some stuff that would be great to fix or add!

- crashes or freezes a bit! For example, using undo sometimes causes app to freeze up, crash, and wipe out the work I've done. I've lost a bit of work with this happening! Stability fixes could make work progress more efficient :)
- is there a way to join 2 separate anchor points? If not, can they be added in?
- importing of videos so that we can draw on videos!
- ability to rearrange frames on timeline of drawing canvas clicking, holding, then moving!
- ability to export as gif file!
- opacity options would be awesome to be able to animate in composition
- ability to change the point of rotation would open up sooooo much possibilities for animating, like puppeting!

And still, 5 stars despite these minor setbacks. This app has so much potential!

My favorite iPad Pro animation app!

There so many great things about this app that I just love! There's the Apple Pencil support, multi-layered frames, gradients, grouping, flower tool, polygon tool, locking layers, importing photos for reference, clip tags, etc. It's the closest thing to Flash on the iPad. It's great for drawing too, if your just not in the animation mood.

To the Do Ink developers, thank you so much for the new export options. It's so much easier to use now. I found a small problem though. Please fix the PNG tranparency for ALL FRAMES export. The background comes out white. Also, please consider allowing us to import images to use in our animations, and not just as a reference. If I could do that, I wouldn't have a need for my other animation apps. Thank you!


This is the first animation app I've seen in over 20 years that is intuitive, thoroughly documented, and full featured. The tools are unusually powerful, modern, lean and well thought out. All wrapped in an approachable child-friendly interface. This is exactly the kind of empowering software that Steve Jobs created Apple for. I'm just shaking with excitement over all the great things I'm going to create with this!
