Close to perfection

I really enjoy it but my only problem is that it does not have a paint bucket. I would give it five stars for a paint bucket. But besides that I really enjoy it.

Powerful and easy to use

This app is pretty powerful in its free state, but definitely worth the five bucks for the more advanced features. It’s a straight-forward flip-book animation tool that offers smooth drawing. Its interface is uncluttered and simple, and that’s actually the only problem I’ve found with it so far—there aren’t enough controls.

By default, the app saves its internal projects to iCloud, which is useful if you’re going to be working on animations on different devices, but I prefer to keep everything on my iPad. It’s possible to set the default location to save projects to your local device, but you have to go to the settings app to do it.

MotionBook is definitely worth playing with, if you’re interested in rotoscoping, adding doodles to existing videos or photos, or drawing animations from scratch.

Easy to use beginning flip book animation

My 10-year-old wanted to draw an animation that was like a traditional flipbook. We really enjoyed this app! It is simple to use. The onion skins and the duplicate frame feature are super helpful. This app is just the basics and great for a beginner to practice animating!
