Toontastic brings animation to the masses

Removed from the App Store

Toontastic brings animation to the masses. The app works by putting on a virtual puppet show and the recording your performance. The app has a simple workflow of picking a story arc, drawing your setting/characters, starting the show, choosing your music, giving your work a title, and then uploading it. The app is the best alternative to the essential apps because of the ease of use. The app is just dead simple. It truly does make animation accessible for everyone.
