iPad App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Concept and Functionality:
FriendStrip Kids is definitely a unique app in that it offers something I’ve never seen before in a children’s app. It’s safe to say that most of us have probably seen a comic strip or two in our time, but how many of us have wished we were the superhero?
FriendStrip Kids helps dreams come true by allowing you to actually insert a photo into the strip, bringing it to life.
I was shocked to see just how many comic strips are available to play around with. Trust me, you don’t have to choose from two or three cheesy titles with bad illustrations and a mediocre storyline.
These are genuine strips that make you want to dress up and become part of the story. All you have to do is (optionally) dress the part, take a photo that lines up with the guide on your screen, and watch the magic happen!
Sometimes it’ll take a few tries to get the positioning of your photo right, but FriendStrip Kids is definitely worth the effort. It’s fun to use, helps kids get creative, and exercises their imagination. Personally I think the app would be perfect for birthday parties or other gatherings where everyone can be a part of the strip.
FriendStrip Kids not only includes a spectacular variety of comic strips, but it also comes with a few cool features that make it even more fun to use. First, strips that you’ve made are easily accessible at the top of the strip selection page.
It’s also incredibly easy to share them with friends and family, and you can share a scene from a strip or the entire strip itself.
Also, you’re free to edit the speech bubbles on a strip in FriendStrip Kids, allowing you to completely rewrite the story. A feature like this means you not only come up with a cool new comic idea, but you can find the perfect strip and actually act it out.
FriendStrip Kids is a universal app that can be downloaded from the App Store for free, but the comics you can access are limited. However, you get a great idea of what the app is capable of during the trial, and it only costs $3.99 to unlock all of the comics.
If you’re sure FriendStrip Kids will be a hit with the family, you can cut to the chase and simply download FriendStrip Kids Pro for $3.99. This is a steal, as unlocking each individual comic collection is $0.99 and there are a total of 16 collections available.
FriendStrip Kids is a unique app that’s a must-have for anyone with a child whose imagination runs wild!
FriendStrip Kids is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
