Macspiration 114 – To Applecare or Not To Applecare

Animation-ish – Review

When I was in middle school and high school I was always looking for an animation program for my computer. I never found one. They were always to juvenile, or too advanced and expensive. If Animation-ish was around then, I would have found what I was looking for.
