Editors’ Notes

Look, up in the sky! It's a bird, it's a plane, it', starring in your own comic book!

Needs a simpler GUI

UncleMac OS X

I love this app on my Mac and it’s a very powerful iOS app however it would be nice to have a simpler GUI for commands. The undo seems to be buried at times when accidentally touching the wrong command and I don’t see an easy way to bring up the undo or a simple back button to navigate.

Something I Didn't Know


I was unable to figure out how to delete a comic. I have found the answer. The answer lies in the Settings of the iPad itself. If you go to the iPad's Settings, under the General tab, then scroll down to the Comic Life 3 app, you will see a section titled Documentation Management. If you want to prevent accidental deletion of comics you have to turn it on in this area. I obviously turned it on and was therefore preventing deletion of my comic. Phew! This is a great feature, but you do have to remember to change your settings depending on whether or not you want to delete a comic. I hope that this helps anyone out there who may have had an issue with deleting a comic. For reference, I am leaving my original review below this one.
I Have not figured out how to delete a comic. Cannot find any information in the app, the tutorial or the manual that comes with the app. I own the very first Comic Life app, and when you tap on a comic that you have already created, one of the options is to DELETE the comic. The icon to DELETE a comic is a TRASH CAN. There is NO TRASH CAN in COMIC LIFE 3. And I have not been able to find anything similar in any other sections of Comic Life 3. Is it me, or something that was left out of the app by mistake? This is a great app and any help is appreciated.
