Creation of Flipnotes APK
Similar to the Flipnote studio, Flipnote 3D allowed the user to create short animations sketches referred to as Flipnotes. Flipnotes could consist of hundreds of frames and could be played back at different speeds. The Flipnote studio 3D enabled provided users with the option of creating 3D Flipnotes by drawing different parts of the animation on about 3 layers. The tools used were a paintbrush, pen, and eraser. The new tools that were introduced to the Flipnote Studio 3D are tools that could draw shapes, insert text and fill enclosed areas like a paint bucket.
The software also featured a 6 colored palette consisting of white, black, green, yellow, blue and red. The original Flipnote studio did not include yellow and green as selectable color but users got them using color mixing. The selection tool was used to manipulate and copy different parts in a frame. Users were also able to use the 3D’s system camera and microphone to add both photos and audio to their creations and export them as GIF or Avi files. The Flipnote studio 3D was introduced and this offered similar service to the original Flipnote studio but Nintendo kind of made it very difficult for people to get and that was a problem for them.
Flipnote Gallery: Friends
As its name implies, Flipnotes could be viewed and shared with friends included in the user’s 3D’s friends’ list. It was a SpotPass service that was initially included as a feature of Flipnote Studio 3D. with this service, users were allowed to share their Flipnotes with up to 20 people in their 3D friends’ list via temporary galleries. Flipnote Gallery: friends featured a simple voting system that was effective for judging of animation purposes. Unfortunately, Nintendo ended Flipnote Gallery: friends in Japan in November 2013, as there were complaints of users, even minors that were exchanging Friend codes and using them to send inappropriate content. Therefore, this service was completely removed by Nintendo through an app update.
Flipnote Gallery: World
As its name implies as well, it allowed Flipnotes to be shared and viewed in a worldwide community as this was also a paid service that was based around 30-day passes that could be gotten in different ways. There was also a particular time that just anybody was allowed to connect to the service for free depending on the console’s system time. When users first connect to the Flipnote Gallery: world for the first time, they were given a free trial to the service and some additional passes being bought for a small amount.
Each pass when activated immediately the previous one expired and gave the subscriber n additional 100 coins and 3-star coins which would later grant them access to limited activities. To perform activities like posting a comment, downloading a Flipnote, and some other activities, a coin was required. Other activities include posting Flipnotes, rating Flipnotes and users could add as many coins as they wanted to depending on how much they liked the Flipnote although users were given very limited quantity of Star coins.

Rating 4.5/5.0, this is the most similar to Nintendo’s Flipnote studio. It allows you to create basic animations that you can share with your friends. It was ranked 2nd while photoshop was ranked 4th.
