Plotagon is an app that uses animated videos to help you plug the gap in your ability to describe things. Those moments where your friend slipped up mid-conversation on a date and the guy was like 😳. There is now an app for that.

You can customize everything from the character’s appearance to the location the scenes take place in and the background music. A recent update also lets you record your own voice, making the videos more ‘realistic’ and hilarious.

It’s a good tool for relaying stories with a complex dialogue in a simplistic manner, but also just for fun. Any videos you make can be published to YouTube or saved on the app where you can browse through other users creations as well.

The interface makes this an easy tool to use and a different way to bring life to your stories or to underpin the pitfalls of the English language.
