How to add .gif image or animation in Sketchware project?

GIF images can be used in Sketchware projects by loading in webview. To load a GIF image or animation in webview follow the steps below.

1. Add a webview in VIEW area of the project, at a location where the GIF image is supposed to appear. Set the layout_width and layout_height of webview to wrap_content.

2. Save and exit the project.

3. Open ES File Explorer, and add the GIF image (suppose it's name is spin.GIF) to folder:
sdcard/.sketchware/resources/sounds/639(specific to project)/
4. Open the resource file of the same project, located at sdcard/.sketchware/data/629(specific to project)/resource, using ES Note Editor.
5. In resource file, under @sounds add name of the GIF image as following code:
6. Save the file, and open the project in Sketchware.

7. In LOGIC area under onCreate event, add the block WebView loadUrl, and write:
8. Save and run the project. The app will display a running GIF image.


  1. If we share this app,will the .gif still appear in the app? Songs too?

  2. When i open the Resource file, (or any other file in the /. Sketchware folder), i can't read it. I've tried UTF-8, UTF-16, and many other encoding options.

    Please, help this NOOB... 😉
