As an avid comic fan, anything that is reminiscent of strip makes me beyond giddy, which is exactly why I am so enthused about the Bubble Up! iPhone app. Created by Trivialware, the app lets users add speech bubbles to anyone, or anything, in a photo. The bubbles come in various sizes, colors and shapes so the app doesn’t get boring quickly. The customizable features of the bubbles also make it possible to color coordinate them with the hues in the photo.
Facebook and MySpace users will especially enjoy the fact that it is easy to upload speech bubble photos to their profiles in just seconds. At times, there are errors that pop up when trying to post to Facebook, but word on the web is that an update to fix the problem is on its way. You can also email the photos and save them or use them for scrapbooking, picture frames, photo albums, etc. For just 99 cents, Bubble Up! has a decent number of options and graphics that hold up surprisingly well with high resolution photos, and adding the speech bubbles and text to your photos is a cinch.
Bubble Up! is a fun app that makes creating a real-life comic strip pretty darn easy. Hopefully, updates will clear up the Facebook posting issues and add even more bubble design options.
Bubble Up! is compatible with iPhone and iPod touch and requires iPhone OS 3.1 or later.
