When Apple announced the inclusion of the cameras on the iPad 2, my first thought was that a lot of great iPhone photo apps would be more fun to use once they make their way to the iPad’s larger screen. I didn’t consider ports of Macintosh photo apps, but that’s just what plasq has done with Comic Life for iPad, their award winning software for creating, reading and sharing digital photo comics.
Comic Life for iPad has been optimized for the multi-touch interface, but maintains the Mac version’s ease of use. Comics created with the 10 included templates and 67 fonts can be uploaded to Facebook, shared via e-mail, or viewed with the built-in reader.
Creating comics on Comic Life for iPad is made simple with templates that include pages, panels, titles and captions along with a full set of complimentary styles – just add your photos and words. You can also start from scratch – building your comic from a blank page using a variety of comic elements. The user interface is set up to allow you to quickly access all of the elements and tools you need to create a comic with a professional feel. The app adopts many of the user interaction conventions from Apple’s iWork suite of iPad apps to make using Comic Life familiar to users of those popular apps.
Comic Life for iPad provides advanced editing features such as linear and radial color gradients to give lettering and backgrounds eye-catching effect. Advanced balloon tail controls let you precisely curve balloon tails to fit around your content. Text layout flows your text within balloons and captions even when they are clipped against a panel for the perfect comic-style effect.
For classroom use, Comice Life for iPad’s virtual In Trays let students transfer comics between iPads quickly and easily.
Comic Life for iPad is available at the introductory price of $7.99 USD.
