Great app!

I've been a McLaren fan for a while, so this app was great news to me. I found it really intuitive and easy to use, and it's amazing what you can create using it in such a short time. You can also save to camera roll and upload to social media very easily. I like that the app is based around some of McLaren's key techniques (and it contains a bio and his films all in one place.) That said, a bit more freedom would be nice with choice of shapes and backgrounds to enable people to be more innovative (in the cut out paper app). I have yet to buy the add on apps, but they look interesting to use. This app would also be good to easily introduce children to the world of animation.
