iOS – Animation Desk – New

Kdan Mobile today is thrilled to announce a significant update for both the iPhone and the iPad versions of Animation Desk, offering animation hobbyists a new and creative way of storytelling. This award-winning drawing and animation app helps its users flesh out ideas into e-cards, storyboards, and animation projects. Now with enhanced audio capabilities and upgraded stamp features, Animation Desk makes it easier to create digital story books or short-length animated films that will grab the attention of a wider audience.

Animation Desk is renowned for its elegant interface and powerful animation functionality, as pointed out by the prestigious review site, AppAdvice. To further extend the app’s abilities, its latest edition supports audio import and recording, so users can add background music, sound effects, and narrations to spice up their works. With the help of flexible audio support, users can easily turn an animated story into a visual and audio delight.


Another highlight of the newest version is the enhanced stamp tool. This patented gadget not only provides an easy option for users to copy, paste, and insert pictures, but it can also transfer patterns of a picture on to the drawing canvas. Users can quickly create an animated figure or a background element of a story. The stamp features largely reduce redraw time and thus allow users to focus on making slight changes among different frames. It also helps parents and teachers to make one-of-a-kind animated storybooks that appeal to young viewers.

Winning the title of the Best in the Entertainment Category of App Store Rewind 2011, Animation Desk has established itself as an inspiring tool for people to explore creativity and imagination. "We would like to thank the App Store editorial team for giving us this honor. We will continue to do what we are best at to benefit the lives of our users," remarked Kenny Su, CEO of Kdan Mobile. Su also announced that the next update of Animation Desk is expected to hit the market in late March to celebrate the company’s three year anniversary.
