This app is satisfactory. Overall, you can make a stop motion animated movie. The drawbacks for me are that they don't allow the customer to control their own material. I have a 16 GB iPhone and the movie I'm making takes up a lot of the memory on phone. I bought an iPad air and thought it would be nice to transfer the material off my phone to the iPad. This app does not allow you to do that. A second major drawback is with the audio. You have to record it chronologically. The workaround for that is to record audio onto GarageBand or another app such as that and then upload it. I'm in the process of finalizing my audio and I'm crossing my fingers hoping that there won't be any more obstacles in this process. I'd like to have my phone back. The final major drawback I will note is that the user is not able to access their own photos on their phone. They control your material on your phone. I even paid for the app to see if they would allow me to have any additional access and I wasted $5 on that app. I tried contacting this company and I did not receive a response. once they give the user full control of their material, then I will change the number of stars that I've given this app.
Best Stop-Mo App... PERIOD
By far the best stop-motion app available. If you really understand stop-mo animation and the essential features needed to perform the functions required the pull off a quality final product, then you'll find this app to have it all. If you are expecting this app to perform everything you want to complete a pro-look final movie, you are simply asking too much. Do your hardcore stop-mo with this app, and then import the segments into a final editing program better suited to the job. The green screen effect does work. You just need to understand the concept and how it functions to get it to work.
Some of the in-app features are limited, such as sound effects, but for such a limited choice the variety is decent. And again, if you want more, add the effects in your final editing program (or app). I could continue, but suffice it to say, this app isn't perfect, buts it's by far the best there is.
Decent basic function, needs polish
- Easy to use UI
- Great control over frames
- Can layer brush strokes over frames
- Paintbrush strokes are very inaccurate even with a precision tablet pen. Especially slight horizontal ones.
- Outline tab for themes does not work for changing default values. Only changing the title of the project changes that, and all others revert back to 'me' or 'iTunes' after closing the tab.
Worked great for my one project so far, but the fact that some features don't even work is a huge disappointment. Overall, still better than some similar apps.
