Comic Strip It! – An Android App for Creating Comic Strips
Comic Strip It! is an Android that allows you to create comic strips using the pictures that you take with your phone or tablet. The free version of Comic Strip It! has limited selection of editing tools, but the pro version ($0.99 USD) offers a large assortment of layouts, editing tools, and sharing options. For the cost, I went with the pro version.
To create a comic strip with Comic Strip It! start by adding a picture that is stored on your device or take a brand new picture. After adding a picture you can add “cartoon” effects, speech and thought bubbles, captions, and action stickers. You can continue to add frames until you have completed your comic strip. When your comic is complete you can share it to popular social networks or save it to a cloud storage service.
Creating comic strips can be a good way to get some students excited about creative writing. If you’re looking for a new way to get some of your students interested in creative writing, give Comic Strip It! a try.
