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.
+ Added layer copy and paste (via a rightward swipe).
* Fixed panel drawing reload when only the sequence number was changed.
* Layers now maintain opacity value when copied or dragged out.
* Incremental improvement to board load speed.
* Backend work toward future board thumbnail performance.
+ Added small indicator that user has Pro upgrade on main screen.
Ratings and Reviews
Great App. If it had a timeline it'd be in a class all its own
I've done extensive research and workflow testing, across iOS and desktop applications in hopes of making the iPad Pro my main storyboarding tool. The drag and drop from procreate is amazing, I wish more apps let you do that.
The one feature I'd beg for is a visual timeline like an NLE. Even a basic timeline that let you see your shots in order and let you scrub to control playback would be a total game changer for story artists. As it is now you can reorder your shots and assign them a duration, which is nice, but if you look at storyboarder for desktop you will see how powerful it is to go sketch-> timeline.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the feedback. The idea of a proper timeline is something I'll need to play around with adding eventually. You can get a similar effect by going into the horizontal scrolling mode, then tap the magnifying glass to make the panels smaller. The width will be fixed, but you can still see the order in a way similar to an editors timeline.
Overall extremely useful tool!
After seeing my friend’s iPad Pro and Apple Pencil in action, I decided to venture into using a dummy stylus to make storyboards with my iPad 2 mini. I watched a few tutorials on how to draw figures and faces, and jumped in to using the Storyboard app.
This app is incredibly simple and useful, and I’m amazed how quickly my boards are coming together. The straight line tool was hidden in the sub-pencil menu, and is incredibly useful, just keep in mind that turning it on breaks the eraser from functioning normally—it seems like nothing erases. This should be fixed to be enabled under an eraser sub-menu so they can function independent of each other.
The functionality of having layers, quickly cloning boards, and giving run time to boards so they can play is truly useful.
For the price, I give this app 5-stars. There are some things that would be nice:
The pencil thickness slider at the smaller end, it ramps down very quickly and I often have to try a few times to get the desired thickness. It shouldn’t be linear but rather slowly ramp the smaller diameters.
The ability to paste images would be nice.
There should be opacity and feathering for strokes.
A history of chosen colors at the top row of the swatches would be helpful, too.
Overall, this app is great!
Great potential, but...
It is really close to be great and to be really useful.
It needs a filling tool, and maybe a pencil-like brush.
Others features should be the ability to add sound, either to record from the microphone or upload an mp3. The ability to create your own color palette would be great.
I have no idea who is behind this app, but its potential is really great. Maybe take a few inside from “storyboarder” app on Mac, and from boords, from the online service.
I would pay $40-50 a year to see those added to your app!
