It had been some time since I’d drawn, and I hadn’t felt the drive to do so until I heard about Flip-kit. Creating a digital flipbook on an iPad isn’t a surprise, but the ability to do so using your fingers or the Apple Pen is interesting.
What is Flipkit and How to Download
Just go to the App Store right now and download FlipKit. Using an Apple Pencil or your finger on a digital flipbook will allow you to draw, paint, and more. It’s the same technique as sketching on a new page and doing the same thing over and over again.
Here’s how Matthias Buchetics, the app’s creator, describes it:
Whether a beginner or a professional, FlipKit provides you with all the tools needed to start animating. The intuitive user interface is also perfect for introducing kids to the world of moving pictures.=
Advanced artists can use separate foreground and background layers, various drawing tools, and animation controls. FlipKit supports input devices like the Apple Pencil, but simple finger drawings are also possible. Import photos from your library or use the camera to give your animations the right background. Similarly, you can use pictures to create a stop-motion animation that your drawings can refine.
Among the other features are:
- Draw with instruments such as pencils, brushes, pens, erasers, and so on.
- You can copy and duplicate portions of your designs using the lasso tool.
- To visualize the prior frames, use onion-skin frames.
- Swipe over the filmstrip to view your animation as if it were an actual physical flipbook.
- Make separate layers for the foreground and backdrop.
- Several examples for both beginners and experts
- Import photos for use as a background or in stop-motion animations.
- Configure your animation settings (background color, frames per second, looping, …)
- Place the filmstrip on the left or right side of the screen (for right- or left-handed use)
- Apple Pencil support
- You can save your animations as video or GIF files.
- Send your creations to your friends and post them on social media.
- It supports iCloud Drive, allowing you to access your animations from any device.
- Spectacular support for Dark Mode
If you don’t have an Apple Pencil on hand, you can just use your finger. Animations may be exported as films and GIFs, and iCloud Drive compatibility means that your work can be backed up to Apple’s servers and synced between devices.
You may use FlipKit whether you’re a seasoned artist or just enjoy making things for fun. Free with an in-app payment that unlocks some features, you can grab it from the App Store right now. – This could be the most excellent iPad app you’ve ever downloaded!
