idAnimate is a general-purpose animation sketching tool for multitouch interfaces, in particular for the iPad. idAnimate allows its users to create meaningful and expressive animations within minutes or seconds. Animations are created by simply moving, scaling, and rotating the objects on the screen with the tips of the fingers. The system records the changes made on the objects, and is able to replay them at a later stage. It is easy to incrementally build complex animations using the record-while-playback technique.

We are currently setting up a longitudinal study with the tool. People interested in participating please refer to the website.
