Falls a little short...
I was hoping for simple animation- and I got simple. There are things I took for granted. There is no way to make your people or characters look like they are walking or talking. You paste the exact same picture from page to page and they remain in the same pose, just in a different spot- so if you're looking for a stop motion type thing, this is perfect.
The screen shot that is above showing the dog lifting the cat to the UFO-- yeah, no templates for those- if you are an expert artist and you can draw those, then this is great for you. I couldn't draw that even on a piece of tracing paper, there is no way I can do it on my touchpad.
I also noticed that even though I downloaded the templates for fonts, there is no possible way to use them. Any writing you do has to be done in "handwriting" on your touchpad (maybe not as much of a problem with an iPad-- I have a Macbook Air)
That said, it's pretty user friendly, and maybe it's fun to do some doodling on- but I wanted to do an actual music video to go along with a preschool song about a frog who jumps in the pond and eats flies. There is no frog, no pond and no insects. (They have a picture of one frog hopping over another- but if you can't separate the two, then it seems silly to have an animated strip of frogs that never take off and never land!)
I would have been better off buying the AllStar package. I'm seeing if I can turn in this version for that.
I was nervous buying this at first because their were no reviews about it. But I got lucky because this is great. My only wish is that they make recording audio easier. If they made an update were the audio was easy to use like in the app Animation Creator on the iPhone. If they did that then this would be the greatest app ever!
