Customer Reviews

This "Free" app delivered more than expected!

I have two grandkids (8&4) and wanted an app we could animation and is easy to work with.

I decided to use iOS iMovie which is good but felt it was a very cumbersome editing process.
Finally I found Stop Motion Studio app and glad I did!

1st. It's a quick app to learn.
2nd. Oldest grandkid very interesting in how it works and can use it on her own.
3rd and most important, I sent support an email and received a very quick response! They provided and answer I soon discovered on my own but they responded quickly.
I found a work-around since it may not be a SMStudio but a net provider issue.

I'm now contemplating getting the Pro version but until I'm sure/it's-clear-to-me that a single purchase ($4.99) will be accessible on both my iPhone and iPad, I will not move forward.

The free version is fun and serves our purpose and if the Pro version is not in my future, I can always save the file to Camera and add audio using iMovie which I've done! It's a work-around!
True that some features will not be available but we're taking One Frame At A Time 😆😆‼️

This is great... except for the money.💸

This app is so great! You can even turn your animations into GIFs! I can send them to people, I can take pictures on the app, but I can’t do all the fun amazing features like the eraser and the sound effects, or the drawing stuff. I wish they were free. They are only 99 cents per feature, but... that’s a LOT for someone to pay for an app that is supposedly free. Well, anyway, I definitely suggest this app! It is still great without the features, but my movies could be so much greater with the special features.

Blend in colors

This is a really useful app. I've been doing almost everything there is to do in it. Although I wish you could blend in your color and fill it in with another color, so the other one won't be in the way. I've tried to do it myself, but the actual color, that they gave to me, didn't blend in with the the rest of the footage. So it'll be cool, if we have a ability to blend in our color's in our footage. Thank you
