This app is for the iPhone user that is into art for art’s sake or likes experimenting with words. It allows you to create a banner that will scroll across your iPhone’s screen. However, unlike traditional banner programs that simply let you choose the text, font and color, this one has a variety of themes, backdrops and textures. Backdrops appear behind the text while textures appear on the letters themselves. Themes are basically backdrops and texture combinations that are already in the program. You can either use these or pair them together individually. Two of my favorite patterns, which can be used for either backdrops, textures or both, are an image of what looks like an apartment complex and a picture of the daytime sky.
There is also a large list of fonts you can use, which you scroll through in the slot machine format made famous by the Urban Spoon app. There are over 30 fonts available, plus different sizes, stroke widths and either a matte or glossy reflection.
To input your text, simply touch the text button on the bottom of the screen. Then push play at the top left to display it rolling across your phone’s screen. Touch the screen again to exit the banner and go back into the program.
This app would be good for someone who works a lot of trade shows as you could set your iPhone up on a stand and scroll a message for visitors. I myself found it interesting to see how each font looked on different backgrounds and may use it as a tool to test out advertisements. This may not be the most interesting app for the average user but it definitely caters well to a niche audience.
