Let your inner artist loose with Flipnote Studio, an easy to use and surprisingly powerful animation application. Create Flipnotes by using the stylus to write letters and draw pictures, capture sounds using the microphone, and even insert photos captured with the Nintendo DSi Camera. Save a Flipnote with multiple pages that run successively and you’ve just made an animated Flipnote that works like a flip book! And if you feel like sharing your masterpiece, send it to your Flipnote friends or, if you are a registered Hatena.com user, release it via Flipnote Hatena, an online service run by Japanese Web-service provider Hatena. With such a large set of tools available, you’ll quickly find that there are many ways to enjoy Flipnote Studio!
*Flipnote Studio cannot be transferred to the Nintendo 3DS system. Nintendo will be developing a similar application for the Nintendo 3DS.
