FlipBook® and FlipBook Lite are the #1 animation apps for your iPhone, with well over 2 million downloads! Easily make your doodles come to life and share them with your friends. FlipBook has everything you need to get started animating, from an eraser to onion skinning (which lets you see a faint image of the previous and next frames) to layered drawing. Load images from your photo library, including images taken with your iPhone's camera, and draw on top of them. If you make a mistake, just touch Undo. Touch Play when you're ready to see how your movie looks. Share your movie by uploading it to flipbook.tv so that everyone can see it. FlipBook puts animation into your hands.
Macworld gave FlipBook 5 mice and said that "FlipBook gives users a canvas for creating something special."
TUAW.com called FlipBook "incredibly easy to use" and concluded that it's "a well-designed program with excellent interaction details."
To try before you buy, look for FlipBook Lite. It's the same great toolset but limited to 5 movies (with at most 50 frames and 3 layers) and 1 hosted movie on flipbook.tv.

What's New in Version 1.5.2
Fixed a potential crash when zooming or scrolling
pan and scale in one gesture
I really used to love this app but I really really really wish they would fix the zoom and pan multitouch gesture. Other applications like Brushes or Sketchbook or even Animation have a really nice flowing way of navigating the canvas. It's so frustrating to try to zoom in, take your fingers off the screen to initiate a pan, take your fingers off to zoom out a little, take your fingers off again to pan just a little more. Then you have to deal with the app trying to figure out whether you want to zoom or pan. So Frustrating. Just one gesture to navigate. Two fingers on the screen, when they move together, pan, when the distance between them increases or decreases, zoom. That's all I wish would change with this app otherwise, i'd give it 5 stars.
PLEASE I BEG YOU!! Please make it easier to zoom in. I can never magnify it without having to undo the dots my fingers make first. I love flipbook but resort to a different animation app that can zoom perfectly but is hard to play it afterwards. You could add a few more tools like a soft brush. If Brushes and Flipbook combined I would cry. They are both awesome apps and if flipbook had an easier to magnify interface and the tools of Brushes, so many more people would be using it
USED to be worth $10
Almost all the reviews admit that this app was worth the money they paid for it, so that should tell you something.
I was able to make some fun animated bedtime stories for my lil' girls and I'm NO artist.
There are cheaper competitors, but they don't have the power this app has.
[EDIT: I took a full 3 stars from this app after the latest update because it rendered my ability to watch my movies painfully slow and also i can't swap frames anymore]
[EDIT #2: It's been a while since the last update screwed everything up. This went from a 5-star to a 2-star app in 1 update.]
