Has potential, but... - Crashes often, crashed the first time in 10 minutes or less and I only had 10 frames with a circle on each… Wait and see if it's patched beyond version 1.0 before you buy.

Review by come one give me something

confusion - just confusing. Sometimes I’d have a handle on the use of it, then other times I had no idea what was going on. Add frame would just duplicate one frame. Took me a while to realize it was doing anything at all. then I tested to see if fram 79 would increase. It did. i was forgiving. decided to clear the frame... nothing. Try to duplicate the frame, and the duplicate clip would disappear. Someone mentioned that the colors are wonky. I could live with that for wonky type videos, but yeah the colors need to be improved. Don’t want to trash it, but I found myself doing more self doubt and attempted learning/troubleshooting than actually creating something and having fun. Honestly, all I want is to do a garbage cartoon with bad stick figury animation….like bad and haphazard, but I could not even accomplish that.

Review by Realm251

Quits Randomly without saving - This app provides the oppotunity to create some visually stunning animation. However, that visually stunning animation won’t matter if the app keeps quitting at random times. Sometimes it properly saves my animation, sometimes it won’t. Either way, it is irritating for all my hard work to go to waste all thanks to a bug in the system. Other than that, this is a really useful application.

Review by skyked

A Good Starting Block for 2D animators - This application is a great start for a young animator to begin with. The animation app does consist of a few flaws such as few layers and backround problems, but all in all it is a great system to work with for 2D animation, letting you choose fps, colors, and more. everything is a flip note drawing process as well so note this in consideration while buying.

Review by 1j2345j

Great app!!! Suggestions? - Amazing app, does everything I need it for handdrawn animation. I use a styler with a button and there is no way to assign the button as an eraser or anything. the undo button also doesnt work and im having trouble figuring out how to change between fore-mid-and back-ground. but still. great app. :) <3. TLDR: -Undo button would be so clutch. most clutch thing ever -also click eraser would be nice -layer switching doesn’t work (i dont really use this but if i could it might be a game changer :) ) thank you so much for this app!!
