My Take
Toontastic is a wonderful app for elementary students. It allows them to create cartoons quickly and easily. The thing I love about it most is how it really introduces students to the language of storytelling, such as characters, setting, conflict, and resolution. The app has a built in tutorial that introduces all of the functionality to students, so you can pretty much set this and let the kids go. if you want all of the characters, the app is becoming increasingly expensive, which is the main knock I have against it at this time.
