Boinx Software announced today that iStopMotion for iPad version 1.5 has shipped. The latest version of the app, which retails for US$9.99, works with the iPad mini and has a number of other new features. Current owners receive a free upgrade to the new version.

There's now a way to insert black or white blank frames into a clip, new sharing options (animations uploaded to YouTube or Dropbox can be shared via Twitter, Facebook, and (iOS 6 only) Sina Weibo). Boinx has built in an accessories page, which displays products that can be used with iStopMotion for iPad to improve and streamline your stop-motion animations.

TUAW has teamed with Boinx to give away ten copies of the app today. To have a chance to win, you must follow TUAW on either Twitter (@tuaw) or Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/tuaw.fb) and also follow @boinxsoftware on Twitter.
