What is FlipaClip?

FlipaClip is a powerful and lightweight app that lets you create impressive animation on your smartphone or tablet. The concept behind the app is simple. It works just like a flipbook where you draw onto pages and flip through them to see motion. FlipaClip makes it possible for even beginners to come up with remarkable animation. It also lets seasoned animators draw incredibly detailed art and animate it from an Apple or Android device. These are just some of the reasons why millions of creatives around the world use FlipaClip.

As easy as drawing on a flipbook

These days, animation is seen as an especially complex task involving the use of powerful technology. However, prior to the computer, most animation was done by recording a series of sequential hand-drawn images depicting motion. Many artists, young and old have mimicked these techniques by drawing a series of pictures onto a notebook and flipping through the pages to create the illusion of movement.

In its simplest form, animation is simply moving images. This is why the idea of drawing multiple pictures onto a notebook and flipping the pages to simulate movement is so relatable.
