Great animation software for a reasonable price. Animaker is easy to use and to learn how to use.

Pros: Value for money
Ease of use
Choice of scenes and characters
Great customer support
Intuitive software

Cons: I've been using the software for quite a while and there were lapses with the exports, which sometimes took even several hours, up to a day. The issues have been later resolved and now the exports work just fine.

Overall: Easy to use to create promotional videos for your business which can be uploaded on your own website and social media. Helps increase the business visibility and attract new customers as well as employees.

Pros: I like that there is multiple features and you can customize it how you want. There are a lot of characters, objects, and background to choose from.

Cons: However, this software is slow, lags, and is not user friendly. I thought it lagged on just my computer. No! Tried animaker on 4 different computers and It still lagged and skipped. I had to complete a project for a class for college and it took me hours because of the horrible software. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND USING THIS AT ALL. I exported this project at 4:00 p.m on thursday April 26th. My project due the next day, it was exported to my youtube at 1:08 a.m. that is unacceptable. Why does it take that long to export? Animaker is not a good preogram.

Pros: I just started using Animaker and absolutely love how easy it is to create animated videos as an amateur, especially starting with a template.

Cons: It's hard to track down how to edit some of the graphics/options but the tutorial videos are extremely helpful with navigating that.

Pros: Easy to use, I have no experience with making videos but I managed to do a nice video in Animaker. I received a response from customer service two days after submitting my issue.

Cons: Don't waste your time making a video unless you want to sign up for the startup or business plan. The quality of the video for the personal plan is not even enough for a full-screen show on a computer, it is all blurry.

This software is excellent.

Pros: Animaker is the equivalent of how Powtoon was a couple years back. The interface and functionality isn't state-of-the-art, but it gets the job done. The tool enables creators to easily create engaging presentations/videos in a short amount of time. Their specialty is cartoon-themed presentations. Unlike Powtoon, Animaker allows users to actually export their video without upgrading, although it will include a watermark. This is far better than Powtoon's solution, which is to let creators create a stunning video, and then tell them they have to upgrade to download it.

Cons: While Animaker is great for the most part, there are some negatives. Transitions aren't seamless - they can be a bit disorienting at times. Also, the preset themes aren't the best. Finally, the site is pretty heavy with graphics, so a slow computer may not be able to handle it. Those are the only negatives I can think of at the moment. Overall, Animaker delivers, even if it's not been updated as recently as Powtoon, its major competitor. Just be aware that in order to produce a high-quality, polished creation, you're going to need to upgrade.

Overall: Animaker makes it easy to create a flashy, engaging presentation that attracts young and old viewers alike. Creative transitions and stylistic graphics enhance the final product.

Pros: This is a simple and easy to use web-based solution for short animations. User interface is nice one, clean and simple so user can make it's job efficiently. There are plenty of options regarding design and animations (nice quantity of elements for Your creativity), If needed, extra media elements can be uploaded (photos, music, voice over). Tutorial video is one of best that I saw and I suggest to invest Your time in it.

Cons: Whole software is based on obsolete FLASH technology. Today all new web-browsers by default start with FLASH blocked so this is really strange decision. Have problems working with FIREFOX/WATERFOX. Guidelines are missing and grid can't solve that. Loading can be slow sometimes.

Overall: This is a good solution for any animation that You need (for Your YOUTUBE channel, business presentation, promotional video,...). In short period of time it's possible to make simple and nice animations that are needed. With extra effort it's possible to make something more (student projects in animation for example).
