Scrap It: Summer Time HD: iPhone App Written Review
Here at the iPhone App Review, we really like applications that allow us to express our inner creativity. Whether that’s a musical application that turns us into the next Keith Richards, or just a simple note taking utility that allows us to organize our thoughts—we love it all! As such, we’re more than tickled to introduce you today to one of our new favorite toys: Scrap It: Summer Time HD by the developer of the same name. It makes scrapbooking your favorite, summertime memories easy, fun and endlessly simple on the iPad. Best of all, the interface it supports is pretty slick, too! If you’re interest has been piqued, head on down below the break to check out whole review of this killer scrapbooking application for the iPad!
Concept and Functionality
As stated, Scrap It: Summer Time HD is first and foremost an application designed to help you record your favorite warm weather memories via scrapbooking, and all using your iPad! It works quite seamlessly, and even if you’ve never scrapbooked in your life, you can still manage things quite well. Here’s the basics of how the application actually works:
First, you’re given a blank canvas to work with. You can add a custom background to this by choosing one of the several dozen designs afforded to you with the sidebar at the left. There really are a lot of options, all of which go well with the summertime theme. Once you’ve done that, you can begin to add stickers and other embellishments like tiles, all of which of course come in a real abundance. You can also add text and letters (there are lots of these as well) in any customized variety that you like! Top it all off with a photo from your photo gallery, and in minutes you’ve set-up a full scrapbooking page that can be saved to the gallery or shared via social networking and email!
Interface and Design
Overall, we were really quite pleased with the interface that Scrap It: Summer Time HD is sporting. We liked the use of the sidebar to navigate us to the app’s copious features, as well as the abundance of materials to work with. We also liked the touch controls, which allowed us to easily modify the elements we put down. However, we’d still like more! Future updates that bring more content, especially content that goes beyond summer, would be well-received in our books.
At the end of the day, if you’re a real scrapbooking fanatic, and you’re looking for a new toy on the iPad, there’s really no better place to start than with Scrap It: Summer Time HD. The app makes it quick and fun to create your own memory catchers, and as you can quickly export them for others to see, it’s even more a value.
Scrap It: Summer Time HD requires iOS 3.2 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.
