Ratings and Reviews
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.

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.
A new feature
Hello Ralph, you don’t know me, but I have a YT channel. D1gital4rt1st. I have a few videos on there and I enjoy making them. But the video I love most is my stick nodes animation. Go check it out. But what I am here to say is, please make the game multiplayer. It would improve everybody’s animation by a lot. But here are some of the problems I already thought of. Since you are working on the animation together, there should be like a group thing you can create. But if the other people want to delete a frame or the project, they should ask the creator of the group. It sends them a message and tells them to select yes or no. Next is the connection thing. It sends the people invites to the group, which lets them say yes or no, and then adding on to that, my favorite part, USERNAMES. It would be really cool to have accounts and usernames on stick nodes they are so that everybody can Identify you. When you scroll all the way to the bottom of the menu on the left, it shows all of the multiplayer items and tools. If you have made it this far Ralph, or whoever it is reading this, please support my idea. If you choose not to plz don’t say anything. Thank you for your time.

Thanks for the rating, and glad you enjoy the app! Multiplayer is actually a really cool idea that I had myself a while back, and others have suggested. I could see that being not only a good way to collab but even just a fun thing to do with some nonsense animation with friends or w/e. I think if I were to go about that, it would really actually have to be a completely new app. SN is a bit too, robust and hasn't been built with multiplayer in mind so, it would basically need to be re-made from scratch. It's an interesting thought though and I am still toying with the idea.
MUST HAVE APP
When I first started this app,I was about 13 years old...it was,well,meh...it 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
