Create Simple Flipbook-style Animations with Animation Desk for Android
Animation Desk is a drawing app that has been popular with iPad users for a while. I recently noticed that it is now available for Android users too.
Animation Desk for Android is an app (free and premium versions available) for creating short, animated videos. The app allows you to create drawings using just your finger on your iPad’s screen. In the free version of the app you can create up to 50 scenes in each of your projects. In each scene you can include as little or as much as you want to draw on the canvas. There are a few different brush and pencil effects that you can use in your drawings. The opacity of the colors you choose can be altered too. When you have completed drawing all of your scenes hit the play button to watch your animation unfold. If you’re happy with your animation you can export it to YouTube.
The reviews of Animation Desk on its Google Play page are mixed. It seems that the app works better on some devices than on others. I’ve installed it on my Nexus 7 tablet and it seems okay.
