Draw Cartoon can build intermediate frames automatically so that you only have to create keyframes, an approach that makes it highly appealing for beginners and kids to create their own animation. This app kindles your creativity and can bring you hours of fun.
More accessible than other animation creators: Apart from its ability to generate intermediate frames, Draw Cartoon also comes with a skeletal animation concept for moving characters, built-in models, and a capable item editor, all of which make it more approachable than your average animation software. The playful buttons & icons and fun models and backgrounds further increase its appeal for non-experts.
Skeletal animation: Every model has its own skeleton -- you can create custom skeletons for your models that feature plenty of bones and sophisticated structures. Creating keyframes is really easy -- all you have to do is move parts of the skeleton; the other frames are automatically generated.
Powerful: While the app has a cartoonish look to it, the amount of customization options are impressive -- the only limit is your creativity. And since you can create your own items and draw models and backgrounds, you can come up with truly unique animations.
Requires purchase for important features: To be able to create your own items or models or edit existing ones, you need to pay. It's an inexpensive purchase given the depth of the features, but the app's description mentions nothing about the locked features, so when you're downloading it you may be deceived into thinking that it's all free.
Takes a while to get used to: This app is remarkably accessible for an animation creator, but if you haven't used anything like it before, you will need at least half an hour or so to get used to the basics.
In the end, Draw Cartoon proves to be a highly accessible, stripped-down animation creator that in spite of its ease of use remains engaging even for older and more experienced users. If you're willing to pay a few bucks to unlock all its features, then you should definitely grab this app. Don't expect it to do everything on its own, though -- you still have to use your imagination!
A perfect storytelling tool and a cartoon studio in your pocket! If you want to become a filmmaker but have no time for professional tools, try this cartoon app that is simple enough to be used by kids.
