AnimationMaker recently discovered, is an amazing app that allows you to create animated presentations. You can build a presentation video which can be uploaded to youtube as well as vimeo. Furthermore, you can create a simple, attractive presentation videos and use it to pitch as a crowdfunding campains for your product or project.

For those that have tried other various aniomated video presentation softwares, I do see this as a more promising tool due to its simplicity to help you make a quick animated presentation.

Accordng to the developer, the idea for the AnimationMaker comes from Adobe Edge which is not available anymore.
