Buncee Pocket iPhone App Video Review
Concept & Features:
During our iPhone app review, we found out this little app lets you create unique scenes, messages and more, then share them however you see fit, much like the popular Buncee Pro app we looked at earlier this year.
The idea is awesome. You can take photos on the spot, or pull them from your camera roll, add fun captions, unique backgrounds, and actually sketch right on the screen to create amazing collages, messages, comics and more in nearly an instant.
Unlike Buncee Pro, the Buncee Pocket iPhone app is optimized for use on your iPhone (although it still works quite well on the iPad, of course) and makes the most of a much smaller screen with awesome features, such as the full screen view.
Some other fun new features include the option to save your Buncees in categories for easier access, and a great simplified UI that works like a charm on the iPhone 4. An awesome basic photo editing option is built in. Simply double tap any photo for a few cool color effects, cropping, zoom and adjustable opacity.
Sharing options include uploading Buncee creations to Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr, or sharing them via email and MMS. More about this after the cut.
Layout & Design:
So we’ve already gushed a bit about Buncee Pocket’s sleek UI, but here are a few more details.
Your creation takes center stage in the Buncee Pocket iPhone app, it’s one of the great things about the entire Buncee app line. The controls are streamlined at the top and bottom of the app. Touching the Buncee icon launches the cool organizational option we mentioned earlier. Save and share buttons complete the top of the screen.
At the bottom of the screen you can access photo options, caption boxes, manual drawing and erasing, background scenes and the full screen button. In full screen mode a simple arrow in the lower right-hand corner brings back your menus. It’s that simple.
At the time of this review there was an unfortunate issue with the Buncee Pocket iPhone app. Every time we attempted to share a creation the app crashed and the Buncee we were trying to share was deleted.
This issue occurred on two different iOS devices. Both had iOS 5, so hopefully this is a simple compatibility issue. Otherwise, the Buncee Pocket iPhone app runs like a well-oiled machine, and we know the pros at Buncee will resolve the issue as soon as possible.
It’s hard to put a price on fun, and the Buncee Pocket iPhone app is just plain fun. Thankfully, it’s also just plain free, so we don’t have to put a price on it. There aren’t even any advertisements to struggle with. This app is a stellar value for iOS users. Get it and fall in love with Buncee Pocket.
Buncee Pocket iPhone app requires iOS 4.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
