Users no longer need deep pockets or technical knowledge to create custom animations; thanks to our free, simplified tools and collaborative open marketplace, they can leverage content from others to rapidly build their own animated messages, stories, memes, advertisements, videos and comics.  

Users can share and even sell their creations - which, with the exploding popularity of animations on social media, can prove quite lucrative.

Today’s fast-paced digital world demands the impact that only animation can deliver, but these barriers make creating animation impractical for most.  Beyond that, most users lack access to the artistic talents needed to create eye-popping animations.  It’s time for a solution that anyone - from teens to marketing executives - can use with ease!


Enter dodlesthe new social media app that makes the creation of custom animations fun and easy for everyday use. dodles distinguishes itself from other platforms by removing these barriers - allowing everyone to communicate through animation.

Simplifying animation is the first key to opening it up for everyone. dodles reduces the feature noise and unnecessary complexity that plagues other animation platforms.  We add to this a more versatile timeline, flexible pre-canned combination effects called "canimations" and character auto-rigging to quickly deliver impressive animations.

Collaboration is also key; with our open marketplace concept, users can easily bring their creative vision to life by mixing, matching, and tweaking animated content they can purchase from others. 

Our team’s deep UX talent has spearheaded a much-needed overhaul of the animation process, simplifying powerful desktop features so that even kids can build their first custom animations within seconds from mobile devices.

Beta Takes Stage

We’ve scaled back functionality for now to release a Minimum Viable Product in December of 2017, starting with a closed beta that still delivers a compelling experience.

Closed beta users can:

Use digital brushes and shapes to create their very own animated dodles

Add special effects to visual elements along a timeline with finger gestures and toggles, bringing their creations to life

Export their dodle as an animated GIF and share on social media accounts


Dodles has big plans for 2018:

  • More animation, including bone-based auto-rigging, scenes, phases and combo effects
  • Upgrades for brushes, shapes, fonts and editing options
  • Importing photos and layered artwork
  • Income generation for users through content licensing to other users & businesses
  • The ability to post, follow, share, comment, message, and other social media features
  • Deep integrations with major social media platforms such as Facebook, Snapchat or Skype to propel massive traffic


It’s an exciting time at dodles, as we launch our closed beta testing phase to artists and crowdfunding backers, in order to gather feedback and publish quality content to their audiences. This content will often be promoted to sizable followings and help drive demand for dodles.  Here are a few more ways dodles is gaining traction:
