FlipaClip is a free animation app that is very easy to install and use. As its name implies, it can be used to create animations frame by frame. You can choose various canvas sizes based on different social media platforms, like TikTok and YouTube. That's why more and more KOLs are using this app for their channels. But drawing animations with your fingers is quite challenging, so using a stylus is highly recommended. With a drawing tablet that supports connections with Android phones, your life is going to be much easier. Today we're going to show you how to use the XP-Pen Star G640S Android Version to animate in FlipaClip.

Step 1: Connect the Android phone with the USB cable and the OTG adapter to the G640S.

Note that when connected to a phone, the G640S Android Version only works vertically.

Step 2: Give your animation a name.

Open the FlipaClip app and click the "+" icon to create a new project. Type in a name and choose the desired frames per second (FPS). We recommend using either 11 or 12 FPS, because these make your animation run smoothly and not too fast.

Click the bucket tool and pick a background color.
