Editors' Notes

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

iPhone Aussie

Has potential

This app has great potential if it actually worked.
Every time I try and do anything it crashes.
I am using it on an iPhone 6 Plus.
So I expect it to work great, I feel sorry for anyone using this on any phone below the iPhone 6.

Every time I finally finish a page then add a second page I have to close the app and then reopen it to stop it from glitching.
Every time I make a new page it seems to overlap itself with other templates.
Now don't get me started on the templates, it has a great selection but going through the selection you have to already know what each collection is before you even look, otherwise you have to search for hours.
Would be good if we had a way to store favourite template, what even save my own template.

Now adding images is A night me, I press the button and wait, nothing, I President game then you can add to it, then it freezes, then crashes.
I reopen the app I repeat the process then it works, any glitches again then I make a mistake and want to undo? Where is the undo?

I'm so tired of this app I am almost set to get a refund.
I will wait for the next update hopefully it will fix, otherwise it's refund city for me, it's quicker to sketch out my stuff on a napkin and a lot less stressful.


Please fix

Love the app, my two boys look forward to doing assignments when they are allowed to use this app. Easy to navigate, colourful, and incredibly dynamic

One area that needs addressing is that there is no spelling check available.

If it has this facility it would be beyond brilliant.
