Schön, aber...

Den Kindern macht das Erstellen von Trickfilmen mit dieser App sehr viel Spaß, das Handling damit ist in wenigen Minuten erklärt.
Warum ist es nicht möglich, nachträglich noch einen Vorspann einzufügen? Die Option „Eine Auswahl von Clips anzuwählen und an eine andere Position zu verschieben“ sollte unbedingt noch vorhanden sein. Dann hat die App 5 Sterne verdient.

Funktioniert nicht!

Leider funktioniert die App. bereits beim Ausführen nicht.
Stürzt einfach ab. Teure App. Finger weg!
Den einen Stern gibt es nur, damit ich hier überhaupt eine Bewertung abgeben kann.

Insgesammt macht die App einen guten Eindruck. Es wird einem mit leichter Transparenz angezeigt, welche Position die Objekte im vorherigen Bild hatten. Was mir allerdings negativ auffällt ist, dass es sehr oft zu Verbindungsunterbrechungen in Verbindung mit der Remote-App kommt. Verwendet man sein iPhone als Kamera und iStopMotion auf dem iPad als Benutzeroberfläche, so kommt es bei mir oft vor, dass die Verbindung zum iPhone unterbrochen wird. Dies scheint wirklich willkürlich zu passieren. Es ist extrem ärgerlich, wenn man dann ein Projekt mit dem Aufwand von 2h neu beginnen darf. Wenn dieser Fehler behoben wurde gebe ich gerne 5 Sterne!

Verwendete Devices: iPad 2 - 32GB und iPhone 4 - 32GB - jeweils auf iOS 5.1
