App Reviews

  • I absolutely love this app but it has a few problems

    By Max Stop Motion
    Ok so I have finally found an app that lets me create animations without too much trouble. It’s very intuitive and has many great features. But as every other app it has it’s problems. One of the ones I’ve had the most issues with is that when I have it set to manual it will still auto correct brightness whenever I put my hand in front of the camera, not sure if it’s my phone’s fault or the app’s but it is a problem because it creates a lot of light flicker. Another is that whenever I have it zoomed in and I go to look at the pictures I have already taken it resets the zoom. This makes it very difficult to animate dialogue. I have a few more nitpickey complaints. Mostly just that I can’t set the ISO to anything below 100 (I know that expensive cameras don’t go below it either.) I often find that my sets are way to bright. And one final complaint, there isn’t a slider for white balance. I just feel restricted because it has a set of presets. I also have a suggestion: a feather option for erasing/painting would be awesome. It would create smoother transitions from the previous frame to the next. And also if there is a way please allow us to change the aperture as well. Overall this is by far my favorite stop motion app and I only want to see it improve. Hope you found this useful.
  • It’s Great-Just What I Needed

    By PhonicsCanDo
    I have been yelling for ages that my little Phonics program needed to be made into moving cartoons; my son told me about this Application, he told me his children are having s great time making Stop Motion movies. So I made little characters from my Phonics stories and using Stop Motion created my own Cartoons, as it were. So far I have had great feedback from those who have seen my Phonics “stories” come to life. Thank you very much. If my Phonics Cartoons Help any little ones to read, I will have the creator of this Application to thank. I have only one “complaint “. The program, has at times, died on me; that is goes totally black-no picture, nothing-when I try to send a Stop Motion Movie. So far I wait, for several hours and it comes back. This last time it seems lost for good. I don’t want to lose the Stop Motion Mini Movies I have recorded. I’m flummoxed. PS: If you want to see your handiwork applied go to “ I Can Do Phonics” on Facebook. Click On videos. (I am trying to put the Cartoons on UTube as well).
  • I love it so much!

  • Great app but some flaws

    By joelhuanca
    I think that this app is a great and inexpensive animation app. It is solid and doesn't take up all your memory. Still, it has some flaws. First, when you make a very long animation, the frame rate drops and regardless of the frame rate you chose. Next, randomly when I go to an animation, the app refuse to let me inside. This doesn't happen too often, but it is a pain when it does. Also, Using the drawing tool can also cause your frame rate to drop, if you are using it a lot. All these problems are still minor and don't happen too often. I wish there was some way to alter the time option in the app. Instead of a picture being taken every 5,10,15 etc. seconds, it could be taken every 3 seconds or something. I think still that this a great app and still use it.
  • You MUST buy this app!!!

    By Blahwhat12345
    Hello, person looking at reviews! I’m hear to tell you that no matter want anyone says, this is the best stop motion app ever. You could never get anything better. Over time, I slowly bought everything you can buy, so you might want to just buy everything from the get-go. (That’s just my advice. You might not need every feature.) This app has great features, like: Green screen Color effect. (The ability to draw on the screen.) Slow/speed up ability Cool titles Cool sound effects Great music And, slightly new, the ability to give a face to a LEGO guy. It’s kind of hard, but the idea is still awesome. TIP: I am a “grizzled” stop motion movie maker. To those of you who want the best movie making experience, download iMovie as well. That way, once you finish in stop motion, you can send the video to photos, then from photos to IMovie. (iMovie has some editing ability’s that are very helpful if you want to make a top quality movie. To the app makers: from a movie making person like my self, (one who constantly uses LEGO for movies) please make the face feature easier to use. (The feature that allows you to put a face on a LEGO guy frame by frame. Good by and good work.
  • This is a great app!!!!!

    By Zach and woooj productions
    This is the best stop motion program for iOS and better than most computer ones, I got the feature pack which was very useful especially for the remote camera and editing features, this update was so useful I would highly recommend this app. One thing I would recommend for a future update is for the erasing tool put a line around the eraser so you de where it is, also put a filter so you could see what you erased( a button at the top so when you click it the erased sections show up a shade of blue or something like that), the last thing I would add is the ability to change frame rate for different sections of the film(ie first half 10 frames second 20 something like that). Good job on the app.

    By JayWalker Studioz
    I own Stop Motion studio pro and the non-pro version. I DON’T LIKE THIS UPDATE AT ALL. The only thing I liked about this update is you can add text to whatever frame you want, but I hate all the buttons you have to press to zoom in, instead of just zooming in on the screen with your fingers. And every time I try to focus it, the brightness changes and gets lighter or darker. I can’t even MERGE FRAMES ANYMORE!! That’s how I used to do all my special effects. It feels like you guys are trying to make this harder on people. Now my stop motions are going to look like trash!! If you keep this update no one is going to pay $5 for a few other things when their stop motions will be so much harder!!! Overall I pretty much, hate the update for this app and the pro version, can you guys just get rid of the update and change it back to normal, but can you guys please keep the text on any frame you want please.
  • This app makes you pay for everything

    By ATeenagerWithAiPhone5c
    Ok. I install this app being an animation fan and is the only free app I could find. I get into it and discover 99% of it you need to pay for. I constantly have to voice my own sounds which are ridiculous compared to the sound drive. When I want to use a sound again I'll just have to voice it because you can't go into the sounds tab and reuse it without all the features. You can't even go to the gallery because it's blocked by the help and download buttons. I'm sure they design this app for newer phones, with bigger screens but to fix that though they'll just up the iOS and I won't be able to use it anymore. I can't argue with the price though, only 5 bucks for full feature pack, but I don't have any money on the App Store. Honestly this app is ok as it is, but please add more features to the free version because I can barely use it.
  • Great stuff!

    By Peeeetsuuuuh
    I love the app, paid the $5 for all the features and it’s a great time. My only complaint is one of the features, which is using my Apple Watch to take photos from my phone. The feature itself works great…until I put my arm down and the watch goes into “sleep mode”. When I raise my arm back up, the photo prompt on my watch becomes gray and I’m unable to use my watch to take photos until I touch my iPhone screen, which makes the screen on my watch app usable again. This is a problem as touching the screen on my phone slightly shifts the image, and within Stop motion, these slight shifts are unacceptable. Other than that I love it, just need to find a work around so I can set my phone up and use my watch to take the photos without the fear of it locking up.
  • Decent

    By VectorMagnus676
    Amazing but why the heck do I have to pay for freaking sounds and backgrounds? This annoys me a lot this app is amazing and is the best IOS stop motion app ever. All the other ones are pieces of garbage. Nobody is gonna use an app that you need to pay to make good. It's so ridiculous when you have to make noises yourself like a freaking footstep. Stop motions are bad Quality that way. Oh my god if it's the last thing you do, please just make sounds free at least😔 You should only make us pay for rotoscoping or something like that. How are you supposed to make a good stop motion with no sound or anything that makes it realistic and have good quality. Although I'll give four stars it's the best I can put. I recommend to everyone download this app and pay for the stuffs.
