I would say alot of good things about what's already in this app but really i just have a couple of suggestions that i think would make this app a little better. First one, reversed movieclips. Basically you can select reverse once or reverse looping. Reverse once will just play the movieclip backwards once. Reverse looping will play the movieclip normally, then when it hits the last frame, reverse it, then when it hits the first frame again, play it again normally. This would work well if you have a charge up animation but you're too lazy to make a energy orb so you change the starting frame and reverse loop a section that already shows an orb. Second, Joined stickfigure linking. Just allows you to copy and paste all parts together of a joined stickfigure as well as delete the entire thing. Third, flashlight filter. Choose which direction you want the light to come from and it makes the stickfigure have a little blurred edge facing torwards the light. Kind of like drop shadow but its on top of the figure rather than behind it off to the side. Finally, background music pls? It would help if you can't edit your animation with an editing program so you cant add music. Thank you if you read this or add any of these

When I first started this app,I was about 13 years was,well, had almost nothing in it, but then came -THE UPDATES- and then all of a sudden the app started getting sooooo much better and better and BETTER and so good that I just HAD to get the pro version.I was having such a good time with the app that it almost wasn’t an app at ALL, it was more like a game I could play, where I could be anything at any place at anytime, I was getting hooked on animation, and in the process of working (playing) I got so much better at it, I got so much experience that I was actually PROUD of what I was doing, in fact SO proud that I wanted to start a career out of it, and so I did.I started to show my friends and family and they would help me get ideas to make it more challenging...if it weren’t for this app,I wouldn’t have found my purpose in life, so whether your just looking for “Sticknodes and chill” or making stories,THIS APP is for YOU, so what are you waiting for?STOP reading this and go download this AWESOME, no that’s an understatement...this MAGNIFICENT APP RIGHT NOW...thank you to Ralph for inspiring so many to find a big purpose in a little app -thank you-your good buddy-Fenn

Ngl I never intended to keep updating SN 6+ years later lol. But here we are. Thank you for sticking (sorry) around and thanks for the review! Glad you enjoy the app so much.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Adobe starts considering you a competitor.

Obviously there are limits to a node animation platform, but with Stick Nodes it’s starting not to matter. I enjoyed the free version for about 2 years before I finally got permission to drop the $2 on pro, and it’s been amazing. The ability to add sounds and export as MP4 made it worth my money 10x over, and then the new updates came out with adding tweeted frames. It is as powerful as you promised and cut minutes off a workload. Polyfill nodes bring in many possibilities and I’ve been loving everything that the pro comes with. The killer in this update though DEFINITELY has to be the auto-camera. One use of it is all you need to see just how powerful Stick Nodes has become. Seriously, auto panning and resizing the camera on its own!? The only real problem I have with the app at this point is that to delete or add a mass number of frames you have to mash the buttons like a God Of War QTE. Being able to hold the buttons down would be a nice alternative. That aside, this is the best node animation apps on the internet and one of the much better animation platforms overall in my opinion. You’ve made your money with this one Ralph.

Developer Response ,

Man, I really appreciate reviews like this, thank you for taking the time to give your rating! I didn't even realize this was a year-old review, now I'm just thinking of all the new features that have been added since then you hopefully enjoyed as well lol. Thanks again.
