Best app for stop motion but has some issues

This is by far the greatest app for stop motion in my opinion, BUT the new update now won't let me upload my pics. All I get is a question mark and this is on my iPad but on my iPhone it works. Also it has an issue when recording sound to sometimes save it somewhere else on your project which can be a bit annoying. They also took away being able to put past recording within your project and place them elsewhere, this helped when it moves your recording somewhere else on the project. These are some minor to major issues as it's hard to move forward on projects but still the best stop motion app out there!

Good, although....

I would definitely give this app five stars. It is very easy to make stop motions with this, and I don't even have to use a computer. Although,... I do wonder where the recordings you make go. Before the last update, you used to be able to see your last voice recordings. I wish you could bring that back. Oh, and if the videos you placed in from your camera roll could have to option to add the original audio with them, that would be perfect. Otherwise, great app. I shall continue using it.

Good Customer Support

I needed an app for my English project recently so I downloaded this one but unfortunately I didn't know how to import photos from my photo stream or move the position of the capture photo button. So I guess that the application is a little hard to figure out at first. But when I sent them an email about this, they replied on the same day, sending me links to certain instructions. I think that the app could be better if all of the functions were easy to find and understand, but overall I was impressed by how quickly they replied.
