I’ve heard a downloadable version coming soon. Could you possibly make an iPad version? I know it’s a lot of work to recode it for ios, but it would definitely be the best animation app

I only just discovered this app and I just wanted to say thanks to the devs, this app is amazing! I work at a customer service desk and am asked to do a lot of graphic/illustration jobs without any software being available. This gives me so much more options :smiley: so thanks again!
