Ratings and Reviews
Great but here's the thing
Hello Flipaclip creators, I love this app because it is great for beginners at animation and people who either not draw on paper, or can not find an app to animate or draw on. I have found a few bugs that need to be fixed, the first one I found was that when I was doing a simple animation when it started crashing every time I tried to play it or slide the frames, it really annoyed me so I did not do the animation anymore until it started to affect my phone, so all of my movies and animations had to be deleted because I had to delete the app for it to be able to work I know it is not just me who had gone through the app crashing. The second one I found was that, my Flipaclip did something that didn't like, it made me not being able to slide the frames and if I wanted to play the animation it would go slower or faster then I put the frame speed to be, and like the first I had to delete my Flipaclip again because it was affecting my phone. The last one I found was, the Comeback Contest, it was going slower than the frames should be and the paint bucket wouldn't work, same with the highlighter, and the pencil. The same thing happened to my friend who was also doing the contest. I also would like if the new audio update would work because when it came out I deleted the app and got it again but when I got it again there wasn't the update and again the same thing happened to my friend. I would like if you fixed the bugs and update thank you.

Hi Alana, thank you for taking the time in letting us know what you had experienced with FlipaClip. I am very sorry and I'd love to help! Let's start by updating your app to the latest version, once done please use the app to animate and if the issue persists, kindly email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we could further look into this.
I’ve used this app for a while now for little practice animations and it’s been great. I took a break from it for about a month so far because I found something else that worked better for me, and I decided to go thru all my old animations. Every single time, and I mean, every single time I tried to click on one, I got a Minecraft ad. I could not open a single project without getting a Minecraft ad. Not an exaggeration. I know you can pay to remove ads, but I really don’t think an ad for every single click is necessary. I’d also like to say that when I use the Apple pen, (this only happens on FlipaClip) the stroke is extremely slow, I guess you could say. It lags behind where the screen is actually being touched and is hardly useful. I also believe that having to pay for more than 3 layers is annoying. For artists like me, we usually like having a sketch layer (usually deleted, so this won’t count), coloring layer, lineart layer, shading, and background layer. Including the fact that you also have to pay to merge layers, this is something that really gets in the way. If you’re looking for something to get started, this app is for you, but I do not recommend this for fully completed animations, as it crashes occasionally and for the reasons above^^ of course many people can get this to work for them, but this is just my 5 cents.

Hello Kashirooz, thank you for sharing with us your detailed feedback and experience while using the FlipaClip app. Such feedback greatly helps us in identifying issues that our users may have encountered. As for the ads, I completely understand it could get really annoying to get ads every single click. I will have our developers look into this to review. We do our best to make things as free as possible. Since we have a team working full time on the app we need to be able to support the team and so having these paid features help us continue to make the app better. I hope you understand. Also purchasing the premium is a one time payment.
I have really tried so many animation apps which either cost money and still sucked or was free but NEEDED you to pay to get the tools that were required. With this, you get the basic layouts and additions aren’t very much needed, but does make your animations a tad easier. I also love how simple the mechanics are in this. Just a matter of sliding up and down and the color wheel gets all the custom colors you need rather than picking the basic colors of red blue etc. I hope every talented artist and animator would choose this as a start to their career or hobby. I have always thought most of the 5 star ratings were fake until I realized how great this is. Live on, FlipaClip!!
One more thing. I would love an option to hide the previous frame so you can see the next much easier. I do get that it is to compare to the last frame so you can turn or move the drawing, but it’s hard to see the next frame when last previous was completely black and my only option was to put a frame between. I don’t have much time anymore to express myself in art like I used to, and I would love to spend every second animating on this, and it wastes precious seconds doing so. But that’s just me being selfish for wanting that. Anyways, thank you for reading if you are. Great app! 💜💖💜💖💜
