If you are someone trying to learn animation there are a few apps for iPad that are pretty sweet. The ipad is an amazing tool for learning and producing animation. If I were teaching a kid how to do animation, I would probably get them an ipad and a stylus instead of a drawing table and animation disc. Its mind boggling what you can do!
Disney Animated is a great way to get your hands wet. It gives a good understanding of animation and also lets users play a bit with animation using a 3d model and a bouncing ball. It has flippable scenes and much more. It is a great introduction for kids to the art of animation.
Toontastic is a great way for young kids to build stories and animate simple characters.
Animation Desk is a bit more of an actual tool for animating. Its a great way to really get in there and do some work. I love doing animation with this tool.
Animators Survival Kit is a more in depth look at animation exercises and is a good extension of the book. I feel that the book is enough though…
please send your suggestions for awesome apps for animation and filmmaking in the comments section and I will update this post.
