Okay, I’ll admit my love of comic books started because of my love of comic strips. I don’t know about all of you but most Generation Xers can remember their parents reading the Sunday paper and always giving the kids the Comic section. Well, that did opened the gateway for me!
I remember reading Peanuts, Archie, Blondie, Cathy, Doonesbury, Dilbert, and a host of other comic strips and grinning because some of my beloved characters had some wild antics. Well today you might have noticed your Facebook and Twitter feeds are starting to resemble the Sunday funnies. You can’t go a week without someone posting personalized comic strips for your viewing pleasure.
Well, you can thank an app called Bitstrips, which launched its 1.1.7 version for iPhone, iPod and iOS users this week as well as on Google Play for Android users to restoring the love to the comic strip. The free app has made its way to the No. 1 spot on the top free-apps section of the App Store and Google Play as of Thursday with more than 10 million users.
If you’ve always wanted to unleash your creativity in comic strip form, download the app to your mobile device, access the app on Facebook, or use your PC to access Bitstrips and start designing your Avatar.
