Best digital animation app?

I want to be able to make art (cartoons, drawings, etc) using an iPad. What apps should I be looking for? What’s the best animation app for iPad? I would need to be able to export the art from the iPad to use elsewhere.

Not sure if you want something for animation or for drawing. For drawing, idk about “best” but as a hobbyist I can say there are many to choose from if you don’t want to go the Adobe route. Different apps are suitable for different purposes, e.g.:
Comic Draw for sketching/inking
Pixelmator for photo editing/composition
Procreate for painterly stuff

All of these can export in various formats.

Far and away the best two hand-drawn animation apps for the iPad are Rough Animator and Callipeg. Procreate is the best painting app to start with, or Affinity Designer if you’d like vector graphics features.

Procreate is easy but it has very limited amount of frames to work with.

Response by poster: I looked at a couple of these. What if I want to make just still drawings, not moving animations? Which app for that?
