Amazing App but You Need to Get the Upgrade Offers to Have the Best Experience

Doodly is only inexpensive if you buy the Basic Version, which is now available for sale as LTD. The Basic Version comes with only the Black & White version, despite the fact that the developer gives a gift of colored components to Basic Doodly subscribers. Then the tale of push selling begins. > There is an OTO for the Rainbow Version, which includes colorful props and assets > For the Premium Temples there will be an OTO. $$ > For the Premium Training, there is an OTO. $$ [However, they included a wonderful playlist for Doodly users, which is a terrific way to get started and experiment with the program.] > OTO for the AI Voiceover App $$ > OTO for the AI Copywriter $$ > Might be a few more?

PROS

I bought this for my blogs first and then to fulfill clients’ requirements if it is needed fully. It is absolutely amazing. It is straightforward to use, and you can create professional-looking animated videos within minutes. It is great for explaining the concept of any service or product. I am still learning thanks to this app, and it has a lot more potential than you would think at first glance because of just how little tech know-how required!

CONS

Doodly is a great tool that takes advantage of creative, design-driven people. Though the capability to make a visual mind map has been patented by Doodly, their Basic Version is still quite budget friendly for those just starting out or are in need of a powerful diagramming app at work or school. Users can choose from seventy-seven preloaded templates and download whatever basic assets they want the software to use when presenting their doodles to others (Black & White Templates). However, there is also an option if you need some premade doodle templates or want something colorful (Rainbow Templates). Additionally, there are other templates available such as Business Templates and Training Templates that range up to more than $250 altogether!

Reason for choosing Doodly

- Clean UI & UX designed soft makes it easy to use - Functionality is faster than other similar apps I know - Assets, Props, Elements look more Premium Quality than other similar apps I know - As a result, output quality of the videos seems to me far better than any other apps I have used so far - Great learning videos on Doodly Official YouTube channel that anyone can learn and apply

Doodly: The Most Esthetic White Board Animation Software available

I have had this software for at least 7+ years. I have seen it grow and improve without creating a completely different product and requesting a new purchase. The creators have been fair and honest. I am extremely happy with my purchase and recommend for others to purchase as well!

PROS

1) Graphics are intricate and appealing 2) Graphics are upscale in its creation 3) Movement of hand is multi-directional, not just up and down. 4) The ability to purchase industry type graphics is a plus

CONS

I would like to see the ability to have some animation (movement) to the graphics.

Passive aggressive marketing

It was very unpleasant to see this message when I was buying this and you got to the part where they were offering you to upgrade it to add more doodles: "No thanks, I don't want Lifeime Enterprise Membership which includes access to 4,516 additional images, 100 more audio files, 20 extra video templates and other awesome benefits, I realize I'll never have this chance again" Come on! What are they doing? After buying the standard version, I got several emails about upgrading to enterprise premium version again and again and how fast the clock was ticking out. Not good for a product which isn't that good.

PROS

You can illustrate videos really quick. It has a library of items you can use and that animation of the hand drawing while you have the audio commenting lets you create fewer scenes while delivering the audio content.

CONS

It has 2 versions: the standard and the premium. There's not much of a difference between the 2 just that it has more doodles to work with. But there are several doodles that are badly drawn or difficult to work with. I chose a doodle named "Amanda" and there are like 5 of these Amanda doodles that show her face as if she had a seizure with half of the face ok and an eye all twisted like if she were high. The extra doodles you don't get with premium aren't that good. You aren't missing a thing. You can't edit the sounds. You just have the chance to put them and that's it. No trimming, no volume. The edit GUI let's you put items above the other, which is intended but you can't change the order of how are they drawn if you don't mess the layers and end up putting an item behind of another breaking the whole idea you were designing. Finally, the preview won't let you start from a desired point, you need to start from the start every time you want to preview your work and you can't add markers to the timeline either.
