Here are some other sites and apps for creating animations. ABCya Animate is a web-based tool from ABCya that allows students to create animated GIFs containing up to 100 frames. On ABCya Animate students build their animation creations by drawing, typing, and inserting images. Students can change the background of each frame, include new pictures in each frame, and change the text in each frame of their animations. The feature that I like best about ABCya Animate is that students can see the previous frames of their animations while working on a current frame. Animation Desk is an iPad and Android app (free and premium versions available) for creating short, animated videos. Draw Island is a free online tool (tablet-friendly) for creating drawings and simple GIF animations.

I've been a big supporter of the app since it launched a couple of years ago. TinyTap has always been targeted toward the K-3 crowd, but it can certainly be used with older students too. To reflect that TinyTap has uses in older grades, the developers gave the app a bit of a facelift and added some new features. TinyTap still works the way that it always has, but some of the decorations and animations that were included to appeal to young students are optional rather than default settings. To create a game on TinyTap you upload pictures or take new pictures and arrange them into a set. The feature of the updated TinyTap app that I like the best is the Sound Board option.
