I love this game but...

This game is so appealing to me and many others. The only things I ask for is #1. Instructions. I just got the free version of this app but I have no idea how to do anything besides animate with the normal stickman. I know you have been getting alot of requests for this but this would change ALOT of what People can do. #2. Accounts. I don’t need one myself but I want to help others about this. Let’s say someone who has this game is getting a new electronic ( phone, tablet, etc.) how are they going to get their animations on that new electronic? An account. This game is so much fun and I think it would be better if you could add an account. #3. More stuff on the free version! I just think something is missing when I play. I think that having some filters on the free version would be nice to have. Some people can’t get the pro version so they can’t get any filters. But besides that, good job and keep doing what you are doing!

Thank you for the rating! I know that is my bad, I keep intending on making a quick-yet-thorough tutorial video that can be displayed in the app to just give new users a quick rundown of how to do things. Will be happening soon. 2) I agree with the accounts thing, for now the best method is to use a computer with iTunes and grab all the Stick Nodes data, put it on your computer, plug in new device, and drag-drop the data onto that device (all through iTunes "File Sharing" section).

Inappropriate Jumpscares

Hello! I really really REALLY LOVE YOUR APP!! But now I feel kinda scared mad all that stuff and I do fun bright happy animations I always delete the first one then something starts to do weirdness and I thought the iPad was breaking!! Then I saw that dang face!! I almost deleted stick nodes because I love it, now I just like it and you say: ages four and up!! Then you show us this demon?!?! Come on, why please please please get rid of it and don’t lie if you do and I really didn’t want it to happen on my birthday month!! So I will not dare to go on until you do it so that was yesterday and it was dark outside worst worst WORST time to jumpscare me!!! It’s stick nodes!! Not five nights at Freddys!!! So end of story but other the that I love it so not playing till you get rid of it.

Unusual and amazing.

This is a wonderful app for creative purposes. As a person with medium fingers it does get a little claustrophobic on a 6, but I loved using it on iPad. Ability to stretch and clone and make invisible is great... Will be trying some joke characters where arms can be ripped off. Sound import from Dropbox would be great, but don't reinvent this awesome wheel. Just keep doing what you do. Would be nice to rotate backgrounds but am thinking of just making things out of sticks.

PS If you need to add sound effects quickly in formats that are not supported, you can create the Sticknodes file, add your sounds to iCloud and add them in Blink Video Editor very simply alongside the original video.

Yeah I know how you feel, I try to keep things as "clean" as possible because I know it can get a bit small on a phone, but iPads are great for this I agree. Thanks for the review!
