Create storyboards: draw, arrange, time, write, and animate.
Use the simple drawing interface to sketch a panel or import (with drag and drop) from any other app. Set the timing, write dialog, action, and SFX for each panel. Play the board back as an animatic to get a feel of your final project.
Export as a video, PDF, images, or text file.
Timing can be as small as a single frame, so real-time animations can be demonstrated within the board. Tap on the "scene" circles to increment the scene count.
Made for iPad, works on iPhone.
* PDF export now updates the progress bar (instead of just a spinning)
* Improved scrolling performance (with more asynchrony)
* Fixed export selection control on iPhone
Ratings and Reviews
Overall extremely useful tool!
After seeing my friend’s iPad Pro and Apple Pencil in action, I decided to venture into using a dummy stylus to make storyboards with my iPad 2 mini. I watched a few tutorials on how to draw figures and faces, and jumped in to using the Storyboard app.
This app is incredibly simple and useful, and I’m amazed how quickly my boards are coming together. The straight line tool was hidden in the sub-pencil menu, and is incredibly useful, just keep in mind that turning it on breaks the eraser from functioning normally—it seems like nothing erases. This should be fixed to be enabled under an eraser sub-menu so they can function independent of each other.
The functionality of having layers, quickly cloning boards, and giving run time to boards so they can play is truly useful.
For the price, I give this app 5-stars. There are some things that would be nice:
The pencil thickness slider at the smaller end, it ramps down very quickly and I often have to try a few times to get the desired thickness. It shouldn’t be linear but rather slowly ramp the smaller diameters.
The ability to paste images would be nice.
There should be opacity and feathering for strokes.
A history of chosen colors at the top row of the swatches would be helpful, too.
Overall, this app is great!
Great App. If it had a timeline it'd be in a class all its own
I've done extensive research and workflow testing, across iOS and desktop applications in hopes of making the iPad Pro my main storyboarding tool. The drag and drop from procreate is amazing, I wish more apps let you do that.
The one feature I'd beg for is a visual timeline like an NLE. Even a basic timeline that let you see your shots in order and let you scrub to control playback would be a total game changer for story artists. As it is now you can reorder your shots and assign them a duration, which is nice, but if you look at storyboarder for desktop you will see how powerful it is to go sketch-> timeline.
Best Storyboarding App in the iOS Store.
(Updated Review of version 2.3.)
I still maintain that this is the best storyboarding app on iOS, bar none.
Dark Mode has been added, which makes working with the app easier on the eyes. Keyboard Shortcuts have been added as well, which is very useful if you’re jotting ideas down at a rapid fire clip. And the ability to re-size the canvas during Editing Mode is a great addition.
I also found the iPhone version of the app to be an excellent port. The option to storyboard when I’m on the train or on a line is a liberating one. The iPhone version is just as functional as the iPad version (as it should be).
Grateful for Keely’s ongoing care and attention to the app. I’ve written emails to him a couple of times and he seems open to feedback. This is one neat program and I woul happily pay for an upgraded version just to support development if asked.
