Create storyboards: draw, arrange, time, write, and animate.

Use the simple drawing interface to sketch a panel or import (with drag and drop) from any other app. Set the timing, write dialog, action, and SFX for each panel. Play the board back as an animatic to get a feel of your final project.

Export as a video, PDF, HTML, images, or text file.

Timing can be as small as a single frame, so real-time animations can be demonstrated within the board. Tap on the "scene" circles to increment the scene count (swipe to decrement).

Made for iPad, works on iPhone.

Paid for premium. Enjoying the app but slightly disappointed.

I never really rewrite reviews, but art is kind of my thing and I feel strongly enough to leave a review. I initially wanted to leave a four star because, as simplistic as it is, I really do feel like this app has potential. But for what it is, it keeps crashing every so often which is, for lack of a better word, frustrating to deal with. Luckily I haven’t lost any work. It’s also frustrating because this is an issue you wouldn’t learn of unless you pay for it. I didn’t mind since it was only about 4.99 or so. Maybe there should be a beta version of the app that’s open until a fully developed version releases, although it doesn’t feel like updates are being made at all. I’m working from 2021 entry level ipad with enough storage so pardon me if I sound rude, but for as long as this app has been on the play store, I don’t see how an issue like this wouldn’t have been resolved by now. In good news, I like the app because of how simplistic it is. I wish more layers could be implemented or that layers could be swapped around. I also think the ability to cut something from one layer to add it to another would be great. In all, my only issues are the constant crashes with no crash report and the archaic layers system.

A few annoyances, but I still love it

Thank you for an affordable storyboard creator! Perfect drawing out a simple story. Having a few layers, a note area, and being able to include audio (to get timing right) is a big help as well. I found directions and videos, but doesn’t seem like you can make a selection on one frame, and then pasting it onto another. That would be helpful. I managed to white out a frame several times while trying, after drawing a selection around the whole frame. Confusing interface? The bug I’ve seen mentioned? I don’t know, but this tool is still really helpful.

Too many bugs

I have purchased full version of this software but there are few annoying bugs. The most important - export doesn’t work. I have about 86 panels in my storyboard and every time I try to export it in any format the program crashes and closes. I have tried to export in any format that is available and none of them work. After trying everything I could I have found a workaround - turning off a watermark in settings fixed export issues. 2. Duplicating the panel within the workspace works sporadically. Sometime it works, sometime it only duplicates couple of last strokes. 3.Duplicating a panel within the EDIT menu crashes and closes the program. 4. The most annoying bug is that sometimes everything you draw on one of the layers vanishes. One moment it’s there, you come out of the panel into the storyboard view and it’s gone. You have to draw it all again. 5. You can’t export a single panel. This is very inconvenient if you’re making any changes!
I emailed the developer but never heard from them. Changing to one star.
