I recently wanted to add some quick and fun comic strip chat bubbles and captions to a photo of mine, so I went looking for some apps. Here is a quick and brief review of the two apps, Strip Designer and Comic Twist, that I tried.Features
|Strip Designer||Comic Twist|
|Nice font included||No (uses Marker Felt)||Yes (Latin-1 compatible)|
|Move, scale and rotate image||Yes||Yes|
|Number of templates||Lots, three styles||4 (3 actually, 1, 2 or three images)|
|Save strips for later editing||Yes||No|
|Resolution||Various, e.g. 799×595||320×480|
Most features should be self explanatory. However, the “save strips for later editing” means that you cannot start editing a strip in CT, then start editing another and afterwards go back to editing the first strip.User experience & UI
Since the last update of Reeder, I have been missing the “feeds in
folder” view. I just recieved a swift reply to my email to the
developer where he explains that the functionlity was moved to another
UI element. Instead of pressing a folder name, you press the arrow on
the right hand side of the folder name. Pressing the folder name
produces an aggregated folder article view.
Here is a cool idea for free: Create a printer client for desktop machines connected to a printer that allows friends to print to your printer remotely via some kind of web service authentication. Why? Because it is fun to receive hardcopies of letters. This is completely not environmentally friendly, but the experience is more analogue and concrete.
