Stick Nodes - Stickfigure animation app!

Hey guys. After a month of Android-only, I finally completed work on the iOS port for my app, Stick Nodes!

Stick Nodes is a simple-yet-robust stickfigure animation program created with mobile devices in mind!

App Store: [Free] [Pro]
Google Play: [Free] [Pro]
More info: [Website] [Facebook] [Google+]

The pro version has no startup ad and doesn't place a small watermark on exported animated .gifs, otherwise the two versions are identical.

You can get a lot more information / screenshots from the official website or the app listing pages, but here's some quick info.

Stick Nodes is a simple-yet-robust animation program that allows you to create and animate stickfigures frame by frame (with optional built-in tweening) to produce an animated .gif you can share with others.

Some of the features include:
  • Automatic frame-tweening turned on/off with the click of a button.
  • Great variety in segment shape types allows for greater creativity.
  • Color/scale on a per-segment basis - easily color your stickfigures.
  • Ability to create, save, import, and share stickfigures you create.
  • Compatibility with Pivot-created .stk files (version 2.2.7 and earlier).
  • Pinch-to-zoom to make animating more convenient and simple.
  • Forward and backward onion-skinning for precise animating.
  • Clean, simple interface created with mobile devices in mind.
  • A "panning mode" to move all stickfigures simultaneously.
  • More stuff I'm forgetting...

Here's a quick animation created by another user.

Here are some screenshots to give you an idea what Stick Nodes looks like.
