Fantastic App!

I bought this app after seeing it reviewed on the Gadget Show. It's a fantastic app that is hours of fun to play with. I made a video for a mate at work out of playdo and it had everyone in hysterics. Love that fact you can sync sound tracks to it as well. Takes a long while to complete an animated movie, but the result is excellent. Only gripe is the price, £6.99 is expensive for what in effect is a time lapse camera. I have another app which cost £2.99 which more or less does exactly the same thing minus the sound. In all worth it if you want to have a laugh. Bring the price down and this may fly off the shelf!!

Good but bad

I had this game for ages and I thought it was a great game since the game was glitched and I couldn’t make it work I tried deleting it again and again but it didn’t work and I also spent £10 on a game that didn’t work I would give it 4/10.

Great app

This is a great, easy to use app that allows you to make stop motion animations. The app has a quality home menu that looks similar to IMovie's home menu. You can take pictures with the front or back camera and you can even wirelessly connect it to a iPhone and take pictures on that which will be sent to the iPad instantly. You can change frame rates per second, duplicate and delete individual frames and you can have onion skinning turned on which is a really helpful thing to use.

You can add a sound track once you are finished and then save it to the camera roll. If you want to do lip syncing for your movie I recommend buying IMovie for IPad. This way you can take the stop motion film out of camera roll and put it into IMovie where you can add your own recorded voice, fx and more.

Overall, it is a great app and probably the best stop motion app for IPad.
