2D Animation App for Kids (6-10 years)

Vivek G Padmaji

Shekhar Bhattacharjee

During his graduation project with Appymonkeys, Vivek designed and developed a 2D sketching animation app named ‘Flipbook:Animate’ for children aged six to ten, that was later deployed across both the major app stores, Android and Apple all over the world. The app took inspiration from the art of flipbook animations, one of the simplest and most accessible forms of animation for children of this age group.
The app provides a book with pages which the users can draw and flip through and simple tools like a pencil, paint brush, eraser and color palette. Users can share their creations as videos or pdfs thereby encouraging them to bring their digital creations into the real world and share them just as an actual flipbook made on paper. The feedback from testing sessions was overwhelmingly positive and the studio plans to improve and update the app.
