iStopMotion for iPad 2.1 Becomes Even More School-Friendly

by Megan -

We're halfway through the week (even more than halfway, depending on what side of the globe you live on!), and to celebrate, we just launched an update to our stop motion animation app of choice (wink, wink), iStopMotion for iPad 2.1. The latest update to the app for the iPad® 2 or higher now offers WebDAV support and push notifications. With WebDAV support, teachers using iStopMotion for iPad to enhance the curriculum can easily set up a local server to collect work created on multiple iPads, allowing students to collaborate on class- or school-wide projects. This eliminates the need for a cloud service such as YouTube or Dropbox, which is especially important since using the cloud is often restricted in many schools. We're excited to see how schools and summer camps and workshops will use iStopMotion for iPad to make learning a more immersive and fun experience!

Additionally, users can now enable the new push notifications feature in both iStopMotion for iPad and the iStopMotion Remote Camera app (available for iPhone 4 and newer, iPod touch 4th generation and newer, iPad 2 and newer, and iPad mini) to receive an alert whenever great new iStopMotion examples are available in the Theater, so they do not need to check periodically themselves. So if you're stuck inside on a rainy day (like we are today), you can check out any of the animations available in the theater to help entertain and inspire.

Not sure how exactly to get started? Check out the Animation Chefs' blog to watch their awesome web series, read and watch tips and tricks on animating, and much more. We posted an oldie-but-goodie video above from them - Episode 5 from the Chefs' series, featuring Justin Bieber and Godzilla. It's awesome and will be sure to inspire! Whether you're looking for an exciting and interactive way to tell stories for educational purposes or just want to have some fun bringing some inanimate objects to life, iStopMotion for iPad is a great way to do it.
