Nov 6, 2010I was so looking forward to FNS when it came out, and for the first few weeks it was brilliant! Then, several months later the Hatena site got a mass overload of crap flipnotes begging for apparently precious stars, therefore absolutely ruining the experience. What a shame, because it's a great tool, despite a few drawbacks.… Full Review »
Sep 4, 2011This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. Flipnote Studio is a Wonderful app, where People can create theire own Flipnotes. On the other side, the community is bad. Full of Star beggers, Stickmans, boos, and Untalent Artists.
If you want to share your flips, go to a website that support Flash and not there.
Of course it take ages to be popular. The other people who got populare are mostly Unfunny/untalented artist or people that are Star beggers.… Full Review »
Aug 30, 2011Flipnote Studios is undoubtedly an excellent application for its price. (Which is free.) You can create really impressive animations, but the quality of course depends on your artistic ability. You can create anything from animations, to "comic books" that you manually turn the page. But, as many users of the Flipnote sharing service Hatena have discovered, you can draw a picture of an adorable animal with a sign that says "Adopt me for 100 Stars," and gullible users will add 100 stars to the drawing to "adopt" it, forcing this little doodle to the top of the "most popular" page. There are also flips with a song recorded from YouTube, which says "Download for 50 stars." People will then add 50 stars to perform a download which is free, and forcing this "no-effort" note into the popular section.
These can be ignored if you want, but the fact is that most Flipnotes on the Hatena site won't fit your tastes. But if you have a DSi and want to try your hand at some animating, Download Flipnotes. It's probably pre-loaded if you have a newer device. It's a blast to animate, and even if your actual "animations" don't get popular on the Hatena at least you had fun making them.
