Wouldn’t recommend, but I see the potential.
First, I’d like to say that I’m ecstatic that someone’s trying to make a proper animation app, I feel that it’s an untapped idea that no app has really done exceptional in. It has lots of potential.
Now for the review, I’ll start with the most important part, which is that the brush engine is unoptimized, clunky, and not smooth. I’m using a 2018 iPad Pro, 1080p resolution, and it’s still jittery and lagging. Turning on smoothing will only do that annoying outdated line jumping thing after you’ve finished your stroke. As long as all of this remains, I can’t bring myself to use this app.
There’s also the already often brought up “no audio option that lets you play audio and sync it with the animation” complaint. The developers have stated this is being worked on so I won’t fault it for that, but I hope that comes soon! And as a side note, a massive plus is that the developers seem to be very communicative with the consumers. The UI takes time to figure out but it’s rather intuitive when you do, and I ended up taking a liking to it.
That’s my review. Again, I want to stress that I really want this app to be improved, no app has done animation perfectly on the iPad yet and I really hope this can be the first.
AVOID! This Must Be A Scam!
You cannot even see what is in this app, how to use it, absolutely nothing until you subscribe. The very first thing you'll see upon opening this app is 3 subscription plans, that's friggin it! If you don't choose one you cannot get in the app. That has to be the most stupid, consumer-hostile approach to selling an application ever. I mean, are you serious with this crap?! You want me to give you money, money monthly, before I've ever used your app or seen what it even can do?! Again, stupid.
I would say, unless you're willing to fork over money sight unseen for an app, that you'd be better off deleting or not even downloading this app to begin with. Only a fool would subscribe to this garbage before even ever seeing what it can do. Subscriptions have ruined the App Store and despicable developers like this one are the main reason for this ruination. Avoid this app big time! I almost cannot believe how idiotic this developer's approach to trying to sell this app truly is, it's moronic.
Actually, the fact that you cannot even use the app before giving them money indefinitely. Well, it leads me to believe that this app is probably garbage. What else am I supposed to think, you won't even let me try it before you ask for my money. That leads me to believe that you have no faith in your own product or that it's a straight up scam. Which, it probably is the latter.
Great workflow with animation but the actual drawing is horrible. The brushes need work, smoothness is bad. They need warp/liquify tools that will make it a lot better. All that being said I hope they keep going because I can see the potential. Please keep going! Take a look at how infinite painter brushes behave and how you can edit fast with a liquify feature. Wish you all the best.
