Full-Screen Drawing and Shortcuts

Theo Sparks 4 years ago updated 2 years ago 7

Hey I love this app!!

Full screen drawing would make animating allot more intuitive (much like the sketchbook app that has handy shortcuts in each corner of the phone). If your animating on a phone screen real-estate is important, full screen drawing and customisable volume-key shortcuts (e.g. 'flipping' back and forth between frames) would greatly improve productivity in the app, it would make working feel more natual I think, as if Im working on a blank canvas rather than in an animation app if that makes sence. I hope you take this into consideration or at least give me your opinion on these features.

Thank you for making this incredible app!

On FlipaClip version 2 we have created a more expanded feeling to the canvas with minimal controls around it. In regards to the requested shortcuts feature we have already added to planned. Thanks!

Hi Theo! Glad to know you're loving our App.! Your idea is actually great and would be really helpful for future use. I'll be forwarding this to our developers for further review! We're always looking to improve our app, and much of what we do grows from ideas like yours, so thank you for taking the time to contact us and hopefully we'll see this feature in FlipaClip in the near future.

Hey thanks allot, Im glad you think my idea is good! :)

Hi. I'm glad that the developer is looking into it. However, a quick search for "full" or "full canvas" showed that the feature has been 'planned' for like 2 years now.

I my question is, how come such a seemingly simple feature takes to long to implement? Or is it not very high on the priority list of the developer? I really like the app but the single thing preventing me from the full version right now is the ability to draw full-screen :( it would help a lot when drawing on such a small screen like a phone.

My thoughts exactly! I thought these features would be first on the list since they seem like simple things to do, and they would be so useful.

Im glad someone else is on the same page and its not just me going crazy haha. I mean the app is so good already, these features would just be above and beyond awesome.


Id like to know the reason for holding back the feature, just giving these options in the settings so people CAN do it if they want but the general audience would still have the user friendly interface by default.

I posted this initially in the app feedback page, then sent it in a direct message to them on tumblr, to which they replied saying they really liked the idea and that I should post it here.

Also if you end up not going for it then Id love to know why cuz to me it seems like a pretty simple and effective feature, but yeah I know nothing about app development or anything like that

7 months later, nice job on the highly requested sound feature, I probly won't ever use it as I just use flipaclip for line testing but it's still a cool feature to have. 


Have you thought anymore about the shortcuts feature? They would be super awesome and time saving. Shortcuts are essential for productivity. 

Thanks, 

Theo.
