Using a simplified story arc you set up a scene, the app guides your children through the creation of an animated story. You build the stories using scene, characters, music and your children recorded voices and sounds.
Some scene are pre-made, others you can buy, and you can even draw your own. So far the animated stories my children have created have used a combination of the provided scenes and their own creation.
Same as the scenes, you have many choices for the characters including creating your own.
The music you select by defining the mood of the scene.
After that: you drop the character on the scene, animate them with your fingers, and tell your story. You can save it locally or share it in multiple ways.
You can see great videos of kids creating movies at the publisher website.
My gripes are small: the time limit of one minute per scene (my daughter’s only complaint), no transitions between the scenes, not available on the Android platform (currently available on Apple App Store.
As an aid to teach/learn the story arc, I don’t know of any app that is this much fun.
