Great great great, missing a few things

Only been using it for a few minutes, I downloaded the app assuming there was a paid version and went in with the intent of buying it because I could just refund if I didn’t like it. It’s great, everything works well and is easy to use. There’s just a few thing that I think it needs to REALLY be awesome, I’ve seen another review mention layers, that’s a big one for me too. Aside from layers, I think that there really needs to be a way to select multiple frames at once so you can copy a motion without getting tangled in the pages if you get what I mean. It can get messy reusing a sequence of frames when there’s not an easy way to just copy and move the sequence. Last thing is less important over all, especially if layers are added, but I’d love to see a way to keep something selected and be able to go into other tools, like selecting the shirt of a character and then coloring it in without going beyond what you’ve selected. Kind of advanced mechanics for an app, I could do all this in photoshop which I have, but there’s a convenience in this that sitting at my desk doesn’t give. Over all I think the 5 dollar price point is fair, the app feels good, works well, produces fairly high quality pieces, if it had those few things I mentioned I would RAVE about this app none stop. Honestly it is so so so close to being nearly perfect for what it is.

As an artist that is always scavenging for apps that are amazing and free to use, this app was perfect! When I first opened the app, the layout was not oversimplified, but also not overwhelming. The brushes on this app are few but awesome. If my friends were looking for a free animation app, this would be one of my top 3 recommendations. The only issue (and albeit a minor one) I have with this program is that when you double or triple tap to undo, it doesn’t have the function (for me). This is something I would love to see added because it makes everything much easier for the artist. The other thing is a selection tool, which would be very useful for editing small or large details. This is still a stellar app that I would recommend nonetheless!

Missing a few things

Some tools that could improve the app are 1. A bucket tool. I spent a very long time filling in pages! 2. Larger brush options. Not only would this mostly negate the need for a bucket, but it would also be more effective for making a lot of different things at larger scale without the possibility of making them different sizes accidentally. 3. Layers. I’m certain that this is the most mentioned issue within the reviews. It’s difficult to draw digitally, let alone animate, without being able to select layers to work in.
Otherwise, it’s a pretty basic animation app. I would recommend this app over Flip-a-clip for more detailed animations just because of the smaller brushes that this one offers. However, if you’re looking for an animation app for vibrant colors and cuter animations with less detail, Flip-a-clip is the way to go. They offer layers and I think a wider selection of brushes, and they have a fill tool.
