I spoke too soon.

*It seems I spoke too soon. Working with my walk cycle was okay until I tried to export it a moment ago. The app crashed constantly and when I finally was able to generate a video file, Windows 10 said it was corrupted. Disappointing. It seems that this version of Animation Desk is just as unstable and buggy as the Android versionI just made a quick sketch walk cycle with this app to test it out on a Surface Pro 3. It's not bad but it needs more features. Why is there no black color selection? No music support? No text support? The app is great at creating really loose pencil test animations. But cleaned up finished projects are a different story. I'm familiar with the Android version which I was not a fan of honestly because of the unstable nature of it all. But this version is a bit more stable even though it's lacking so many basic features. I'll keep it installed on my Surface Pro 3 to see if future updates iron out the kinks. But for more serious work I'll have to look elsewhere.

Decent for quick movie idea sketch, nothing more.

This app is hard to use for something larger than an idea sketch. App crashes constantly. Drawing functionality is not great, you can't zoom in or out and you can't rotate image which makes it harder to draw perfect lines. No layers what so ever, which is not big deal but desirable. Minimal pencil size is 4 which is way too thick for my drawings. Overall if you want to create an imperfect animation to redraw later - you will be pleased.

Great app

It is a great app only complaint is that it could have more tools to use.

Painless to learn, iOS version has sound

Other than a double click on a color to bring up the custom color that doesn't accept RGB/LAB(or any other numbering option), the entire user interface is intuitive for animating, and the export to mp4 works on Windows10Pro (Though I have additional codecs outside of the default, like those from Quicktime Pro). It's not a professional animation program, but as this is Windows, there are many professional animation software options and sound editing options for video.

Doesn't even have the color black

This app sucks, first off there is no color black, and the pen either goes from too thin to see, to too for detail at all

Double tap on any color on the palette, and you will find a color mixer. Hope this tip helps ;)

I am trying the demo!

I tried the demo of this app, it works great, it does its purpose of what it says, I don't get the bad reviews of it, yeah it needs improvement and a more difficult option for the more advanced skilled artists but otherwise its perfect for someone that sketches animation.

hoping these aren't all the colors...

because if I cant easily access BLACK of all colors, among others, I wont be buying this app, which is a disappointment because I would love to get better acquainted with it.

needs updating

this application worked very well at first and I was very impressed. Now however, I get nothing but crashes whenever I try to play any of my projects or manage my frames. I'm extremely frustrated with the sudden malfunction of this software. It no doubt requires a fix, otherwise it has just been a waste of my money and a huge waste of my time and effort.

I don't know.

I feel like I could find better software for $4 or less, with 1 medium, 6 colors, and no zoom feature, your cartoon is sure to not display the full potential of your creativity. On the plus side, the software is responsive to my every touch and needed detail, and texture. I give this app 3 stars of 5 for potential, neatness, and decent reliability.
