"Sketcy" is great as far as I am concerned, but there is one major problem that the author should serously consider fixing.

When you watch a premade flip-book, the program unarchives it and when you are done it does not re-archive it; if you try to watch another, the program comes up with a blurb saying "ERROR not enough RAM" and you have to go into you memory and re-archive the one that you watched. This problem is not the end of the world - "Sketchy" is still a good program.

Note to anyone that makes a flip book - keep the size under 19k, because people with a lot of programs don't have the RAM to run any that are bigger.

Graphics - 10/10 as good as the calculator
Memory - 7/10 it's an app, and doesn't re-archive things
Usage - 10/10 very fun
Overall - 9/10

Ok this is a slide show application that lets you make animations. The way it is set up is cool. It lets you save your animations, load them, run them, and lots of other stuff. The only bad thing is that it is an application. So try it now.

Controls-10/10 Right there
Memory-8/10 Well it is an application...
Usgae-10/10 Nice idea
Overall-9/10 Pretty cool

This program really isn't all that it is made out to be. There are quite a few things "missing" in it, including more drawing options, potentially a better user interface, and, as has been said in another review, the location of storage of pictures. There are some good things about this program however, and I give the author credit for those, but I don't think I will continue using a flash app worth of space for this much longer.

Graphics 9/10
Interface 5/10
Features 7/10
Overall 7/10

This is the best graphics program for the calculator and better than a lot of computer software! Even without the focus of the program, (animation) the menus are extremely well designed, the program is visually attractive, and the whole package will ensure that this program will stay in my calculator's memory for a long time.

There are a few (though minor) problems:

  • Not enough drawing options. (Horizontal and Vertical bars would be useful...)

  • The arrow is too big so I can't see where the point is.

  • 'Easy movement' options would be nice. (Shift sprite left, up, down...)

  • Finally, I don't know where my animations are stored!! If I want to back something up on my computer, I don't know what to back up!

Despite these problems, I would the rate the program:

Graphics: 100%
User interface: 100%
Speed: 90%
Title screen: 70%
Overall: 95%

This Program Is Superb! This is just like a program on my computer that lets me make stp motion animation films except it is better because you draw what you want to animate! SKETCHY is very well made and easy to understand. If you like making movies, this is a great program!


memory requirements: Moderate
