A very simple, intuitive and powerful animation app. A true child of the magical iPad.

No more tediously drawing frame after frame.

You can use any image in your photo album for animation in the app. Import images with ordinary square frames for backgrounds and import cut out images with transparency for "puppets".

You are the director. You choose your actors (puppets), and you choose your stage.
