The ability to create your own characters in Skylanders Imaginators is expanded with the Skylanders Creator App. The Creator App is free to download. It adds all sorts of new capabilities that will let players express themselves in exciting new ways. This FAQ will answer questions concerning the features of the Skylanders Creator App.
The following lists the major features of the Skylanders Creator App.
The Skylanders Creator App is available on select iOS and Android devices.

Yes. You can create Skylanders of any class or element. In addition, all of the parts available to create your own Skylanders in Imaginators are also available in the Skylanders Creator App. However, many of these parts start out locked and can be unlocked by opening the free chests that appear in the app daily. Transferring a created Imaginator from the console game to the app will also unlock any parts that have been used on the Imaginator.
Yes! This is done through a new feature called Chirp. Chirping an Imaginator through Skylanders Imaginators causes the game to emit tones that can be understood by the app and decoded into your unique Skylander.
To transfer your Imaginator from the console game to the app:
You will hear a series of beeps and whistles come from your TV speaker. Hold your device near the speaker until the app tells you the transfer is complete.
The app does not have the capability to directly transfer a character created on the app to the console game. A player can, however, create a character on the app and then have it reproduced in the real world by ordering a 2D card or 3D-printed figure. Either can then be used on the Portal of Power and played in Skylander Imaginators.
