Create comic books with your own photos or drawings

Make your photos come to live and tell a story you can share with friends and family. With Strip Designer you will create comics from beginning to end: Sketch, draw, mask, add warped 3D lettering, balloons, and combine everything with complex panel layouts.

No in-app purchases -- Everything is included!

You'll begin by selecting one of the many included comic book page templates or create your own custom layout.

Next, you'll add photos from the camera, your album, or create a drawing. Apply filters, or even paint on and mask your photos for atmosphere, style and retouching.

Add balloons and text anywhere you want and in any direction and size. Play with the colors and fonts until you get the perfect look.

Add stickers like "Boom", "Splash", or "Bang" to spice up the action -- Even create your own library using photos from your photo-album and the built-in masking and drawing tools.

Use 3D warped text with thick borders and gradient color-fill to give your comic the extra super-hero look. Download and add additional free fonts easily within the app, to give your text a unique look!

While you work, you can freely pan and zoom to control even tiny details.

Once you have finished your masterpiece you can save it to your photo album, email it, or export as PDF and other file formats.

So legendary

Strip designer is the best writing game I have found and it will always be. Even though it is made to make comics I mainly use it to plan the books I write and I can always rely on this app if I want to make a book my only problem is I loose a bit of data every time I use the app:(. Hope you can fix it in the next update. 😄😄✌️👍:-)

Love it

This app is so fun to use!! Great that it can bring to 'life' and story board still photos. Would be 5 stars if it can retain image quality, imported from the photo gallery, when saving strips instead of reduce /compressed quality. Retaining the high resolution image quality/print quality would be good to have for print purposes so that we can 'create' our own scrap/comic book, so to speak. Especially useful when iOS is updated to support wireless printing from iPhone/iPad. What's the point of having a good iPhone 4 camera when the end strip image quality is reduced.


Thank you for the option for hi-res output with the new update! Loving it even more!

Best of its kind.

Forget all those "take a photo, add some stickers (that you pay extra for), add some effect text (that you pay extra for), share" apps that the store seems full of (with more added seemingly every week).

In even its simplest mode, Strip Designer leaves them all in the dust. It is without equal, yet amazingly gets better with every release, being improved by a very responsive developer who obviously cares about his product. This is the one that all those others don't want you to know about...
