The Google Chrome Web Store may just be days old, but there are some gems that you can find already. Just check out Ajax Animator, a cool HTML5 web app that allows you to create and edit animations on-the-fly. This simple animation tool is also a great beginner’s app for young animators.
You can get the app from the Chrome Web Store. Once installed, start by drawing on the canvas and adding layers. You can add elements for every frame in each layer where you can also shift the layer up or down, toggle to view, or delete. You can also watch a preview to see how your animation unfolds, then save your animation or work on it offline.
Other options include changing the Canvas size and the theme, all done in HTML5 goodness. Since it lives on the web, the app is cross-platform and cross-format.
Ajax Animator is a good app that shows the potential of the Chrome Web Store and the future of web apps.
