Animation Desk user reviews :

Though I love this app a lot, I have some suggestions to make it even better. 1) Having custom resolution; I work on a lot of animations, those being small intros from animatics, it’d be more convenient to have this feature. 2) Having the size of the eraser and pencil separate; When I realized my pen was the same size as my eraser, I was puzzled. What’s the point of this aspect? I usually make a lot of mistakes when I do line-art so its frustrating to be honest!

  • Hi, thank you so much for your detailed review. We have added some of them to the backlog. Though the current pipeline is quite full but we will try our best to speed up! Thank you for using Animation Desk.
It’s a pretty good animator app Expect there aren’t many tools, like pens, pencils, brushes, etc. But the big problem is that when you use it on mobile, it’s really laggy, and you can mess up when you try to do the first layer for the drawing and animation. Edit: it happens when i open the app, it’s kinda laggy and it is a good app but needs more detail, you get what i’m trying to say? I’m not trying to sound rude or anything sorry if i do tho, but honestly overall it’s good just has some bugs.

  • Hi, thank you for getting back to us. Thank you for reporting the problem of app lagging, we really appreciate it! We will look into the problem now. By the way, we added more brushes in v3.9.0, please have a look.
I was going to give it a five star but then I figured something out. The thing I figured out was that all layers are connected to all frames instead of to that one individual frame. Therefore you switch one layer to be above the others in that one frame and it does it to all frames. The next issue is that it won’t let me undo deleting a layer. So aaaalllll that animation I just did, which took an hour, went down the tube. Literally. I do not recommend downloading till all issues get resolved.

  • Hi Nia, thank you for your detailed review and your suggestions about the layers and frames. I will forward these suggestions to the dev. team.
Good app, works really well on my tablet, The only problem I have is that when you cut and resize or copy a frame, it becomes very pixelated. Wouldn’t say it’s a huge problem, though

Hi! I am currently working on a sprite animation for my Friday Night Funkin’ mod, VS. Xero. This app is very hard to use, once I tried to use the lasso, it did not move my character (I was working on the head movement), it is also very laggy and flodded with ads. And needing pro for extra layers??? Really?? If you want to animate, I suggest Huion Sketch, Procreate, or FlipaClip. I hope you improve this app!

  • Hi, after selecting the area, please choose “Cut” or “Copy” the drawing, move the drawing and tap the “Paste” button. Thank you for your suggestions about the app, we will keep on improving our product.
Pretty good app, you can get some extra stuff for a few hours a day if you watch some ads too. Either way, you can pull off some good animation if you get inventive and dedicated enough.

  • Hi Eva, thank you for your 5-star review, we really appreciate it.
So far very good. Ads only before/after animating, doesn’t interfere with creation. Also I LOVE that you can freely rotate and zoom around the canvas.
