Editors’ Notes

Why let folks with design degrees have all the fun with GIFs? Whether you got an A in art or never advanced past stick figures, this intuitive tool lets you animate your doodles and share them both in-app and beyond. Whenever we felt stuck, we checked out our fellow users’ work for a creative spark.

I like it.~

Not a lot of controls, but keeps you focused on simplicity rather than brushes. The animating rather than drawing. Also, saves tons of phone space! And it’s free, so what more could I ask for? I really enjoy it, as maya would cost too much and be too complicated, and I like things simple. Not a detailed drawing app, but that’s not what I’m looking for. There are so few animating apps that are also free, I feel. This is the first animating app I’ve seen, in fact, although I probably am not very up-to-date. Nice and simple, and I am satisfied with the app!

Suggestion: The only thing is, the button names are out of the way, and some may consider them hidden. Must go to your animation specifically, touch the little gear, and it’s under the question mark.
Some people may like a tutorial, but personally I find things intuitive and easy to figure out, and I like figuring out stuff! <3
Everything is simple and effortless, and it doesn’t even require WiFi or an account, which is awesome! I mostly share things, too. :)

The ads are out of the way and very few.

Thanks for the New Colors

I'm extremely surprised and beyond thrilled that we finally have some new colors to use in this program. Thank you so very much. I'm very grateful and thankful for that update.

I do still wish, though, that there was a way to hide non-animated posts when viewing animations in the social part of this app. It is massively frustrating to go through so many dumb non-animations, of children drawing stupid crap that's not animated at all. I asked for this option forever ago and still have not seen it implemented unfortunately.

So, I really hope that you'll consider either moving static drawings to another section of the app or at the very least put some type of indicator on them letting us know that they aren't in fact animations at all please. Then I can skip clicking on them and wasting my time. Thanks if you will consider that option, thanks again for the new colors added in this update and God bless.
