  • Eh. . .
    by Drtomp2 on June 26, 2022 at 1:09 am

    This is an app that I would use again, if not for it's major updates it needs to add. In my opinion, the saving options and the fact that you have to buy most of the pencils and supplies is over the top– in a bad way. I was making an animation I was really proud of, but when I exited out and logged back on an hour later, almost a fourth of it was gone. I also wanted to make some lineart but because I could only use mechanical pencil-like tools it was hard. It is still good for making animatics, but the way it ONLY uses pencil- like supplies without money I can't really make too much stuff with it. Overall, this app is ok, but I think it needs a lot of updates from where it is now.

  • Scam
    by Hungry88 on June 24, 2022 at 4:03 am

    I will give this 0 stars if I can

  • I don’t know if I like this….
    by Circus baby slayer on June 22, 2022 at 4:15 am

    I just got this app today thinking it would be great because of the reviews, I am wrong. As soon as I started to make my animation, it was so glitched, it was also extremely stressful to use, the screen would sometimes not even turn or zoom in, and I wanted to add audio, but there was no option to do that, I also wanted to copy and paste no option to do that either. So sorry for the bad review! Sorry if I was harsh. Thank you for reading this review thank you!

  • It’s okay, but…
    by Huskylover2h20 on June 19, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    Love the app, hate the glitches. I like the app and it’s fun! But, I was trying to draw a Pokémon and it came out great! But, when I went to the part of me coloring it, it was like NOPE! I was on the paint bucket, and had the color blue on, but when I tapped it did not work at all! And all of a sudden the outline turned white! And I had the airline black, plus I was on the color blue! Please, fix this glitch it really bothers me. Plus, I had to delete and get the app again because it would not work! I’d suggest this app, just don’t get to connected to your hard work.

  • Awesome
    by thlsrzifhzsrltkjhdrztl on June 9, 2022 at 4:03 pm

    This is a really great app. Amazing for beginners. Easy to use. A lot of the reviews that say that there is a glitch or stuff like that I haven’t experienced. Awesome app.

  • Horrible
    by I like it but sign it ishues on June 7, 2022 at 3:49 pm


  • Your app is glitched
    by youtubelol1937 on June 7, 2022 at 3:17 pm

    I just downloaded this game and it keeps loading. You need to update this app

  • Will switch to FlipaClip soon
    by Dissatisfied Cartoonist on May 30, 2022 at 10:30 pm

    A few years ago I wanted to download a program on my tablet to work on cartoons and animation, and that’s when I found this app. It started off fine as a program and I liked it. Fast forward a year and that’s when they started making you pay for things, such as adding captioning to your animations. Things only got more downhill from there. Purchases had to be made for everything so much it felt like Spotify but for making cartoons. Not to mention there were ads everywhere. I think the last straw for me however, was when I filled out an entire week’s worth of frames, decided to take a break for a while, and when I came back the frames were all gone! I’m still working on a project on this program, but once I finish it, I am not using it ever again and will move on to other possible apps such as FlipaClip. This program used to be good, but now I feel like it’s turned into a cash grab app.

  • Pretty good. Except for 1 thing
    by NotVozzyLIVE on May 30, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    I’ve had this all for a bit and it’s really easy to use and your average animating app but I was recently trying to make an animation with music so I imported the video with the song but as it was imported I pressed play and the video didn’t have sound? I would think it would be a great addition to this app so that users could insert audio from videos they import :))

  • It is great for small animations any where and any time
    by Electrophonic-totophonic on May 29, 2022 at 4:39 pm

    I just started and it is great I love it

  • Export functions are crappy TwT
    by Papas fritas 345 on May 28, 2022 at 9:45 am

    I’ve been trying to save a gif to my photos, and apparently that’s not something you can do?? I tried saving it too, but the image quality was honestly really not that great, and I was rather disappointed.

  • Great app!
    by microwaveMiku on May 22, 2022 at 12:16 pm

    It’s an amazing app, but some features such as adding audio on mobile i cant seem to find. It’s a great app for beginners and experts!

  • Good app, but why is awesome spelled wrong?
    by jswift17 on May 21, 2022 at 1:12 pm

    OK so let’s say that this is a great app. This made me way more creative. But… when I was downloading this app one of the photos said “create awasome animations.” WHAT DOES AWASOME MEAN IS IT AWESOME OR AWASOME But overall I think this is a great app

  • Deletes my work after every single update
    by The Ultra Aura on May 17, 2022 at 3:18 am

    As fun as this is, there is a Huge flaw in the updating system because every time this app updates all of my work is erased into a single frame which is very heart breaking because I was making something because it’s the end of the school year here and I wanted to do something to so the memories of that class will still be there and so when I went to download it onto my iPad and the app updated by the way and every frame was gone and all that was left was a single blank frame and I was very heartbroken and it took me a long time to create that and I got the audio for that animation and I was planning on surprising my class too with some of those people in my class going onto high school Until the company that created this fixes this major flaw everyone’s work will be erased after every update.

  • Yay this is so good
    by thank you so much. on May 14, 2022 at 4:57 am

    Continue this ignore the hate this is the best better then flipaclip

  • OK GOOD uninstalling
    by vent problem on May 12, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    The glitches there’s just too many glitches I can barely animate if you can fix this in this game would be 10 times better!!!

  • Too many glitches
    by Mightyisabella66 on May 5, 2022 at 2:45 pm

    I had this app before, cause i wanted to animate. Obviously. But when i made a new project and started drawing, it would glitch out and not draw a straight line. It would also stop drawing in some areas where I WAS drawing. It has too many glitches that i just got irritated and deleted the app.

  • Good app but suddenly my file was in a previous version
    by Hureal on May 5, 2022 at 1:41 pm

    I lost one week work because of this issue and nobody has responded to me. I highly recommend making copies of your work constantly and exporting it... THE APP SIMPLY DOESNOT WORK WELL AND NOT SAVE YOUR FILES PEOPERLY

  • Great for beginners but has one main issue..
    by ImNotHerr on May 4, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    One of the reasons that I love this app is because it is so easy to use! I had never animated a thing in my life before I got this app. It had great reviews, so I got it. There are only a few features you have to pay for. The app works perfectly fine without paying anything too though. There are some glitches when it is saving and has kicked me out several times, losing my work. This isn’t a very big issue because most of the time, I am just playing around with the features. For people that wish to use this every day or for big projects, I suggest another app. Don’t get me wrong though, this is a great app and I recommend it to all beginners.

  • Plz no
    by Dancing coffee queen1234 on April 28, 2022 at 10:26 am

    Ok so got this yesterday and I need to BUY pro when I just wanna animate!

  • What?
    by ice cream for sale pls on April 19, 2022 at 8:56 pm

    Either I’m not doing it right or something because you have to redraw the animation over and over again! If u could copy the artwork so I don’t have to redraw it just with one detail change that would be 👍 great

  • Great game but...
    by Hawk7088 on April 19, 2022 at 4:57 am

    I think this is a good game there's some glitches here and there but what I really don't like about it is it makes you buy your own Video to download it on your device which I think is really dumb why would we buy our own creation but if I got confused about it just saying buy video and we just have to download it please tell me

  • Lag problem
    by Xander's bread on April 18, 2022 at 4:05 pm

    I love this app! It’s my favorite Animation Desk app! It could use some fixing though with the lag problem because regardless if im on good internet connection it still lags.

  • My project 😐
    by ThePantryGhost on April 18, 2022 at 12:18 am

    This is overall a great app, really easy to use, but will randomly delete a cell or a whole project, i’m new to animation and it can be really annoying when the app closes itself and nothing saves. Hope the glitch gets fixed soon because this is a great app.

  • Awful 😢
    by lilbagofsunshine on April 17, 2022 at 9:58 pm

    It lags so much and any useful tool you wanted to use was behind a pay wall so I only could use one brush option and any premade shapes were out of the question I try to import images and they didn’t show up I don’t know if it’s just my phone but after seven minutes of just trying to make the app work I gave up and deleted it too many glitches

  • Good, but could be better
    by rustybutton on April 16, 2022 at 5:46 am

    I agree with all the top reviews, I just have to complain about the glitches. When you do even a simple pen stroke it automatically saves. Even if you exit the app randomly, the drawing or animation saves. Sometimes for no reason at all, it decides your hours of work should get randomly deleted. It’s some weird bug. I’ll be drawing and it randomly crashes and the animation is gone, not even a frame saved. Other times, it won’t let me zoom out, and I have to pray it saves and am forced to exit the app and go back in. These are detrimental bugs/glitches that make or break it being an amazing beginners animating software, basically my only complaint. Other than that, extremely easy and simple to use, with amazing animations that can come from it.

  • Very good game a few glitches
    by Return To_Monke on April 14, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    I was drawing my animation I brought it to my friend to show it and after i did there was random scribbling on my page. Very good game (Edit) (Thank you for replying to my message sorry for the inconvenience)

  • A little bit annoying
    by cat 123$&* on April 10, 2022 at 10:40 pm

    U need to get the pro just to get a different pencil! U also need to sign up to get different things to!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!😾😾😾😾😾😾😾😾😾😾😾😾😾😾👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿😾👿😾👿😾👿😾👿😾👿😾👿😾👿😾👿😾👿😾👿😾

    by ملكة النار on April 9, 2022 at 9:31 am

    To be honest … I downloaded the app bc I thought it will allow me to have more than three layers but it’s still like FlipaClip … also,does any one think here that the app is so similar to FlipaClip clip but the only difference is that there are a LOT of things in the app that you have to buy to use like in the holl App Store why can’t I find that one app that is all free , and WHY IS IT SOOOOO GLITCHY ?! I put the image so I can animate it but it disappear out of existence for no ABSOLUTE reason !? Although flips clip needs money for layers but flipaclip is waaaaaay BETTER than this app , DONT waist your money !

  • It’s okay
    by yourmomlovesmyfather❤️ on April 8, 2022 at 11:06 pm

    Look i don’t wanna be picky or anything, You have to pay for almost everything. i’m not a fan.. i can’t draw a circle i look for it in the menu click! Wait it’s six bucks?.. for more projects you have to buy it. i sound cheap but i recommended “Flipaclip” it’s completely free.

  • Downgraded to a 2
    by Dirkd9000 on April 8, 2022 at 4:48 am

    This app is super scary glitchy. Literally spent hours on an animated loop. Showed my wife and hit the play button and it just decided to clone the frame I was on over the rest. Lost hours of work. Hope you guys have a way to retrieve a previous version. As a creative, that’s a huge blow and extremely discouraging. Even worse I’m paying for their lame cloud service. This may be the last straw if you can get my work back. Even after it’s fixed, I’m going to have to manually export every time just from the fear of losing my work again. I submitted a ticket.

  • Nice app
    by 11twin_win on April 6, 2022 at 1:32 am

    It’s a good app!

  • OMG
    by I think you should play it on April 2, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    I wanna FaceTime I’m working on a Animation on waving and I am still working on it I will I love this

  • amazing
    by Princesseosalina on March 27, 2022 at 4:41 am

    they should add a bigger brush but overall good.

  • Would’ve been the best if not for one thing
    by FurbyLisa or Tattletail on March 23, 2022 at 11:23 am

    Why is there no audio. Seriously this app is way better than all the other apps BUT THERES NO AUDIO!!!! Basic animation app feature one way or another. And you make people pay 39.99 a year for this??? Even the Classic version had audio. Can you please focus on recording audio a la FlipaClip, before focusing on anything else?

    by grizzy-z on March 18, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    I LOVE IT SO MUCH .I just got it and I love it it just all deets . GET IT NOW

  • Waste of time
    by Sammmyismad on March 17, 2022 at 4:34 pm

    This is the worst app and I’m definitely not picky, basically I’ll be zooming in and out and it makes little marks on my art which is irritating, you can’t recolor, making a perfect circle is for pros?!!! Like bro don’t get this, it’s a waste of time and money 🙁

  • Really good, but could be better
    by Koalagorillaz11 on March 17, 2022 at 4:16 pm

    I honestly really like it but it could have more editing tools, drawing styles and more. But I’m old recommend it if trying to make an animation

  • Not very good
    by Gmi40 on March 16, 2022 at 4:25 am

    For a while I’ve been looking for a nice 2D animation software for iOS and this isn’t the one for me. A big problem I have is the fact that turning is kind of weird, often one of my fingers is outside of the box and I create lines instead. Also whenever I push undo theres a 50/50 chance it will or will not work and is very frustrating. The lack some basic features is pretty irritating for me also, like the fact that there isn't a stabilizer tool as far as I know. There are also tons of small things in the app that annoy me like when you play your current project and end the playback, it brings you to the last frame you watched during playback and when I turn most of the time a line appears for example. Overall I dislike this app due to what I’ve listed, it’s too finicky and doesn’t certain basic art features, maybe given some time and maybe my opinion may improve but for now, not very good.

  • I’m sorry
    by WHISKIRE on March 15, 2022 at 12:44 am

    I really don’t want to say this but, I really don’t like this App. The main thing that I don’t like is that the supply’s are very limited. Like, when I want to for say do some sketch/line art, there is only the pencil tool. I also don’t like the fact that the App doesn’t have a copy and paste tool, I am used to have a copy and paste when drawing and or animating. All I want to say is “Keep trying”.

  • awful.
    by RahRah69 on March 14, 2022 at 1:39 pm

    so , when i bought this app i thought it was great . however a few months later , it had a major downfall . When i was doing an animation and drawing , i tried making it into a file for a gif but it ended up turning the only 2 frames i had drawn into duplicates , meaning that i had only one full frame in the file . Really bad.

  • It’s good but could be better.
    by Neonpacifist on March 10, 2022 at 2:06 am

    I like the app except for making only 3 animations unless I have to pay for a subscription.

  • Won’t stop crashing
    by floogle shoes on March 9, 2022 at 11:43 pm

    App started crashing and I don’t know why. Every time I open the app now it crashes. I delete and download it again and the same thing happens after a day, and I’m currently in the middle of a project so shifting to a different app mid production would be kind of awkward

  • So… one of the developers plz read
    by taehyungbias7tantan on March 9, 2022 at 3:54 pm

    How do I use sound because for some reason I can only put in music, also plz don’t give one of those yt videos when replying back FlipaClip did that once but I can’t use YouTube because I’m not old enough, anyways plz respond back, this app is great lots of love ❤️ thanks

  • Why not
    by Sleek Sneaker on March 8, 2022 at 12:09 pm

    I wish my Wacom would connect

  • Good, kinda
    by ThePheonixOrion on March 7, 2022 at 1:39 am

    The free version is ok but still feel not enough tools are available

  • Pretty good!
    by MewGeorgi cat on March 5, 2022 at 3:29 am

    This is pretty good!! The only problem I have with it is I don’t know if I can zoom in yet- but if so I recommend it!

  • Good but not for portrait mode
    by ryanlinagain on March 3, 2022 at 2:07 pm

    Good features and brushes, can import photos and videos as background. Limited aspect ratios to 1:1, 3:4, and 16:9.

  • Crashing
    by Stella Octangula on February 27, 2022 at 10:52 pm

    I used to use this app to animate because you could remove the watermark for free, but with the recent update, whenever I try to open the app it crashes immediately. I hope you can fix this quickly so I can get back to my animations.
