Great, but....

This is a great app and all, but it’s missing something- instructions. In setting you should add instructions. I don’t own the pro, but you I think you should add in the choice to download your creation on mp4 AND gif. I don’t really purchase stuff like apps and iBooks. I’ve had this app for what, like, maybe a year now? Well, I’m still having trouble figuring things out. You really need to add in instructions. One more thing: music. This is all pro but at least put like a small limit amount of music. Like, what if I want them to dance?! I can’t save and add music. Or add music and save! I’m asking a lot, so please just add save on mp4. But besides that, this app is great and it’s the best animation app that I’ve ever come across!

Unusual and amazing.

This is a wonderful app for creative purposes. As a person with medium fingers it does get a little claustrophobic on a 6, but I loved using it on iPad. Ability to stretch and clone and make invisible is great... Will be trying some joke characters where arms can be ripped off. Sound import from Dropbox would be great, but don't reinvent this awesome wheel. Just keep doing what you do. Would be nice to rotate backgrounds but am thinking of just making things out of sticks.

PS If you need to add sound effects quickly in formats that are not supported, you can create the Sticknodes file, add your sounds to iCloud and add them in Blink Video Editor very simply alongside the original video.

Fun, but not explained. At all.

I've been looking to animate for some time, and this is clearly the best choice for fellows such as I. But there's one issue. A LACK OF INSTRUCTIONS. There are so many questions I had the entire time whilst animating two different productions, such as deleting creations from your library. Many of the features here assist with making a smooth animation that is both easy to make and nice to look at. But I'm afraid due to my lack of understanding I have lost most of my patience and may delete this app soon. Apps like this have potential, but PLEASE. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. EXPLAIN THE FEATURES WELL. I bid you a good day or evening. Thank you for your time.
