Customer Reviews


Awesomely great app. I'm an animator and rotoscope regularly on my desktop. I love creating things on my phone, especially animations. This is the best option for rotoscoping that I've seen so far for the iPhone. I wish there were a few features that don't seem to exist. How about a next frame button? If I'm drawing on a frame, I'd love to be able to hit a button that brings me to the next frame without having to return to the main screen, choosing the next frame, then hitting the draw button and so on. Basically, if there were some short cuts to ease the amount of button pushing this would be a mind blowing app!!! Still awesome, but maybe you developers can work your short cut magic? Also, how about a pinch and zoom feature to make sure I can draw all the way to the edges, and to get in there for better detail? An onion skinning feature would also be amazing? Great work, I'm excited for future updates!!

It's a great app

I really like this app, but, I wish in the free version you didn't have to buy so much stuff. Don't get me wrong, this is my favorite video app, but
it's like you can't even do anything on it but take pictures and adjust time. So on your next up date, I'd say you will get more people if you make it less expensive. And I'm not just saying that because I want more, I feel like some people can't really afford a lot of things on their devices, and they have to get free. And then there is a little more things on there to make them happy. Also, think about it, people will like the free one so much that they'll want to see if the one you have to pay for is even better.

Would recommend for stop motion on the go!

I do stop-motion for a hobby and have been doing it for 7 years. Of course, stop-motion on a desktop will always be the superior and preferred method. However, not everyone can afford either a computer, or the stop-motion software for the computer- much less a webcam or DSLR to go with it all. For those of you who either want the portability and flexibility, or are just looking for the cheapest method to conduct your hobby with- this is by far the best app to do it with. Would recommend this to anyone wanting to do stop-motion animation and are unable to do it on a PC for whatever reason (or just choose not to)! Get this app!
