Best app for stop motion ever!

I love your app because this app let’s you have so much control of the movie you make and also because it has sound effects on it.

Doble T girl btw ,

Ummm.. WHAT?!

So what’s with the fact that you have to pay for literally everything I can’t even add simple audio or even add a pic from my gallery the fact that you need to pay for absolutely everything makes me want to delete this app and for a school project what am I supposed to do? Have a soundless video? This is absolutely ridiculous considering I can’t even pay for everything needed which is everything! I can make my skits come to life without all these features so simple I can’t use the app I might as well download another app like this and I looked at the reviews no one is getting a developer response meaning the developer probably doesn’t even see this! Have you seen the reviews on word cookies at least they get a developer response I’m so done with this app. Can I at least get audio without having to pay!? Because I’m pretty sure everyone got annoyed looking at how much things you have to pay for. If I don’t get a developer response I’m deleting the app PS I’m not trying to be a Karen I’m just super annoyed PPS please fix

100% Would recommend

This is a amazing app even though you have to buy extra stuff to make your stop motions come to live
