One of the easier ways to handle multi-density screens (ie, Retina) is to use resolution-agnostic file formats. For iOS development, SVG ideal. An SVG file is a vector file, so no matter what size you scale it too, or what the pixel density of the screen is, you will always have the 'crispest' image possible.

Looking at their documentation for animations it looks like animation is handled within the app--meaning that you create the individual animations yourself outside, then import them as individual frames.
