I really like using Stop Motion because it means I can really express my imagination in a way that everyone can see, and if you get good at it you can show people and they’ll say “wow that’s amazing!”, I just like hearing people’s feedback, but what I don’t really like is that you now have to pay to access all the features, but overall, it’s just so amazing what you can accomplish with such limited time or space! I have been animating for over five years now and I really love it.


Needs another cool update

It's all super duper cool and that but it really needs a cool update. You know when you press on a frame it comes up with all those options, well if you press on 'capture' it puts it in front of the frame that you want it. It is especially annoying if you try to put it at the end of your movie but it goes second last. So I think people need to make it so the 'capture' frame goes after the one you are on.
PS. Sorry, it was super hard to explain, otherwise this app it literally the B E S T app everrrrreerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!'nnn

This app is really great when you want to goof around or want to make something serious drawing and taking pictures trying to make a stop motion but when I went into the app to put them together I couldn’t because it was an in-app purchase which I find to be odd because it’s stop motion you should be able to import images, now I know for a fact the developers need to make money and having no ads really doesn’t make you any income but putting some you should already be able to use makes it a bit petty I’m sure you could do something else in the app that cost money, thank you
