A professional animator has access to each frame of an animation and can control minute details in the visuals of each one of these frames. Because of having control over each frame, the animation turns out to be exactly what the animator wants it to be.
Many animation creation applications on smartphone devices do not offer such in-depth control. Not only can you not access each frame in these apps but you are also only given objects that can dragged onto the canvas with their movement path defined by you.
If you are looking for a better, more thorough and competent animation application, you should check out the excellent Animation Desk for iPhone.
Animation Desk is a user-friendly phone application, compatible with iOS devices. This app is sized at nearly 45 MB and is compatible with iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad devices, running version 4.3 or later of iOS. The app lets you create visually appealing hand drawn animations with control over each frame of the animation. Apart from various visual tools, the app also supports audio effects and rotoscoping. The intuitive interface offers you tools that lets you take an animation from beginning to end with ease.
Finished projects can be uploaded to YouTube or shared on Facebook with friends. Animations can also be transferred between different iOS devices.
The app is available for iTunes for $2.99 but the developers have generously offered 15 promo codes for the first 15 commenters on this post.
