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.
