Reputation alone. (Updated)

For many years Boinx has been a reputable company with outstanding products, attentive customer service and support. That alone makes this app well worth the investment. I have been using it now since day one, and can tell you it is really a great app. As you can see from their updates, they really do care about making an exquisite app.
The ability to use your iPad as the hub or main station of production, and your iphone or ipod as the camera is spectacular. This app is great for small productions and large. Allowing multiple camera angles by easily switching from one camera source to another. I have found some issues with wifi connections, which I believe has to do with the type of modem or router being used. (***Recent Update Has Resolved all Issues!*** OUTSTANDING!)
Over-all a great tool for expressing your creativity, either for entertainment purposes (just for fun) or full productions.


I'm going to be blunt...

- no undo/redo options!
- you cannot reorganize frames
- drag and drop is useless, only function is to delete, which already exists as a button
- cannot add new frames between frames
- forces you to work linearly!
- in app playback sometimes flickers, must render to video for accurate playback
- not student friendly, doesn't let you correct mistakes

Not worth your money. This software feels unfinished. Get Stop Motion Studio Pro instead which is a complete software for less with all of the essential features this one shamelessly leaves out.

Deletes half of every thing

I made a racing stop motion, and the next day, just randomly, half of the images were showing black screens even though on the bottom it showed the image
