Ratings and Reviews
Good for drawing, not good for anything else
I find that the more and more and longer I use the app the more problems pop up that take forever to fix or never get fixed. One of the biggest issues I have with the apps recently is how the sound only works like 70% of the time and when I say that I mean that it literally just records the sound itself, but when it comes time to put the sound with the animation it works only when it wants to which is for all practical purposes never once. I don’t even understand why doesn’t work most the time. I mean I’ve been using this application for years and only now the audio is being unusable so I am aware that they have the ability to make a working audio system but they don’t seem to be doing it. Some other issues are with how files are stored while the system works very good sometimes I’ll make a new file and put some projects in it just for me to close the then come back to the app just for the file to be gone and all my projects back where they were. I find this problem is rare enough for it to not really be all to bad but it seemed worth mentioning. But it does have more intuitive design then most apps so I can give it that. I also know that this review has been mostly negative but it does have some good qualities but this review is already to long. My final thoughts are that it’s good for beginners but that’s about it. But just a couple of changes and it could be amazing.
Each update gets worse
I’ve been a long time user of this app, I loved it big time. This was the very first app/software I used to start animating. But... each update gets worse. I’ve started to dislike this app each time there’s an update. With each update there’s a glitch or the previous glitch gets worse, and worse, and worse. One glitch that made me stop using this app was when I go to record an audio. The audio won’t play even after I’ve recorded it multiple times, used different projects, different FPS, it just wouldn’t work! This really frustrated me to the point I’ve stopped using it. Then another problem is you either lose your frames and/or lose the audio each time you go back to your project. The FPS would change and when I go to change it back, it deletes my audio. Plus when I go to download the animation it’d delete some frames making the animation choppy and not very pleasing to look at. It’s a shame that my favorite and first animation I’ve used gone bad because I used it since it came out. I would’ve rated it two stars but I gave it 3 because of its features included. It’s a nice app but the glitches ruined the fun of it. Please fix these. I would love to use this app again but it’s too frustrating to use. Thank you for reading if you have.
Too many bugs that need fixing
I'm too poor to get a professional animation tablet, and this is my next best option, though there's a lot of bugs that have cost me weeks of work and frames deleting on their own or appearing in a random spot in the animation. I hate how the pencil and quill are so pixelated at the smallest size and how frames become blurry if they're duplicated, and that you can barely zoom in on what your drawing. The select tool is awful and shifts a random section of the frame content after I move a drawing and it is very blurry, and the fact that there are only 2 layers to work with and all the blurry, pixelated lines make the drawing quality very poor. I've had this app for 3 years and I'm very disappointed in how nothing has changed for the better, if anything, it's worse. I wish there was an update that fixed all of this.
