Buncee Pro: iPad App Video Review
Buncee Pro, by the developers of the same name—more or less—first floated to our shores only a few short months ago. Since then, we’re pleased to announce that the app has undergone several revisions, and now offers even more content for the buck, including some truly spectacular Holiday packages. If you’re looking for an incredibly inventive, simplistic, and efficient way to send personalized greeting cards or eCards from your iPad this Holiday season, you’d be hard-pressed to do better than this bargain-priced yet delightfully impressive app.
Concept and Functionality
We were tickled pink to find the same smooth functionality inherent to the earlier versions of Buncee Pro still staying strong after the barrage of improvements. In terms of simplicity, we could not be happier with the app’s functionality. The title presents the user with a single blank canvas that can then be filled with various clipart pieces, or tiled-up for some truly incredible looking background pieces. The same smooth control scheme ruled supreme, as adding new pieces took only a tap at the menu along the bottom. Likewise, editing the scale or rotation of an included design element was as simple as pinching, pulling, or rotating with our fingers. All in all, we can’t get over how quick and easy it is to create entirely awesome eCards with Buncee Pro. If you’re a fan of sending your friends and family personalized greetings, there’s no better way to do so from your iPad than Buncee Pro, especially as the app features immediate integration with such varied services as Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, MMS, and eMail.
Design and Artwork
We previously lauded the app for its incredible design, and we feel that’s a sport still worth pursuing here. The menus are easy to navigate, offering a scroll wheel along the bottom containing all the apps 150 clipart pieces and 80 backgrounds. Choosing from specialized categories is a simple sweep away at the left of the application menu. Likewise, we also appreciate how simple it was to export our productions to the various integrated locations: All in all, it usually took us under a minute to load a photo to Facebook or Twitter.
However, the real bang this time around comes with the new additions. The developers have included a whole new set of Holiday backgrounds and clipart items for users to benefit from. With the Yuletide season swiftly approaching, we found the new inclusions absolutely splendid, especially the backgrounds. The artwork is often brilliant, and we felt precisely nailed the feel of the season.
Best of all, the app is only $0.99 in the App Store. For so much content, that’s an unbeatable price, and one we feel even the most stringent of eCard senders can stomach. With the recent updates, it’s all the clearer that the developers intend to keep adding content, making the future of Buncee Pro a particularly bright one. The app is a must-have, especially for the holiday season.
Buncee Pro requires iOS 4.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
