I've been using this app for the past 8 years for all my projects, and while it is lacking in certain areas, it's a fantastic program. I do wish it had certain things (i.e. blend modes & clipping layers) but out of the other mobile animation apps, it's the best one out there. My only real complaint is that, for some reason, the app doesn't let me import .ra files from my old phone to my new one. I've used the same process before, but it won't work now. Otherwise, fantastic app. Worth the price!

Rewriting my review to say the new update has been great and thanks for listening to my feedback about the center cross, really improved my videos by using it more often. Really fixed a lot of problems. Gets a bit slow and laggy if I make a really long video, but that's probably just my phone not able to handle it. Cant wait to see what the next update holds, looking forward to it. Oh, I just remembered, a cursor when using eraser and pen would be helpful to see how much is going to erased.

This app is awesome and definitely worth buying. However, It keeps deleting all of my progress, even thought I saved it, it keeps deleting everything. I merged one of my layers down, and then all the rest of the layers deleted. I don't know if this problem is with the program or my computer, but I'm pretty sure it's the app cause my other drawing app doesn't do this.
