    Hi!

    Our App, Stick It Action, was just released on the App Store 10 days ago. This is a stick figure animation app where you control the stick figures movable parts and take frame by frame snapshots to create an animated sequence. There are weapons you can fire and objects (blood splatter, muzzle flash, etc) you can use. This is version 1.0 and we are getting some pretty good feedback for additional features for the next version. If you get chance, please check it out and provide feedback either on the customer review section or our website. We're looking for more suggestions for version 1.1.

    Thanks!

    Lol
    I have the same question as Kamazar is it like Pivot? Trying to look it up, but as we all know iTunes is going to be very, very slow today due to all the downloads of the 3.0 release.

    Edit: Got it up.
    Haha interesting how during the week when I was looking at apps I thought to myself "an app like pivot would be pretty cool", and lord behold here one is. Are there any videos? Not sure if it will work like I want it to...

    this reminds me of ouch! but it is with 2 ragdolls that can move their arms, legs, and joints and stuff. I have read some of the reviews and looked at the pictures. Is their more room in the "scene" than pictures indicate. It kinda looks like their isnt much to do in such a little space. Also, you should add glass walls, regular walls, and rubber walls/trampolines.

    I still am skeptical about purchasing. Will you utilize OS 3.0 at all?

    ok i just bought this. and i can tell it is going to be played for hours. def. worth .99 cents. you can adjust the framerate (sort of) and incorporate many stick figures and props/weapons. the controls are a bit quirky but i still like it. If you like ouch, violence, and are creative, you will love this.

    so far, 4/5 stars.

    Thanks! A lot of users have been asking us to check out Pivot for inspiration for the next release. Is there anything you would like to see added for the next version? Some suggestions we've received so far are:

    Shadow of last frame (we like this one). This will help keep characters on even plane.
    Allow weapons and objects to rotate on X-Axis.
    Sound effects. gunshots, screams, applause, etc..
    Ability to pan while zoomed in.
    Uploading of animations to website and/or youtube.
    A Create-your-own object tool.

    http://stick-it-productions.com has a short example of an animation. Thanks again!

    ok. you have to get used to it a bit. the controls are wierd and need to be tightened a bit. i just spent a little while making a fight and i thought, ill add a grenade, so i go to the box (where you add props/weapons) and choose the grenade, i go to close out of the box, BAM, my whole fight lost. granted, i should of saved it every so often, but still, work on the controls.

    after that experience: 3.5 stars, i am still going back for more :D . i havent even used any props yet.

    Agreed! This happened to me yesterday. We are putting a prompt to 'Save' game before exiting out when the button is pushed.

    Hi, just to follow up on a couple emails we've received the app was indeed built with OS 3.0 in mind. We downloaded the new OS yesterday and re-tested and all works well. Thanks!

    how do you make the weapons activate? and a suggestoin would be instead of a delete frame icon, there could be a frames icon (no red slash), that shows you the frames and the ability to delete them. you could also click on a frame and then edit it.
    I was trying to make a stick battle, made one persons whole movements, the realized there was no way to get back lol :p

    Hi mebeswordguy,

    To activate the firing sequence, press the firing button. It's the one that looks like a muzzle flash. It'll light up when it's activated. Then just drag your finger from the weapon to the target and the rest is automated. Remember to deactivate the firing sequence when finished with it. We can move frame by frame and make edits with the forward and back buttons (the little blue ones). I do like the idea of being able to flip through each frame, full screen, and then either edit or delete. hmm. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for the feedback and suggestions!
