ComicStrip - CS ($1.99) by Sketch & Scotch is an enormously fun and easy way to create a comic strip or multi-photo piece in a single frame. Simply place your photos into one of the templates, add captions, and voilà! You have a personalized comic strip!

Tap the “+” signs in the opening template to add pictures from your photo library or take them in-app. Open the tab in the bottom left corner to access Change Template if you prefer; there are seven templates from which to choose. Double tap any photos you wish to remove.

When you tap that tab, you also have the option to Add Captions. Choose a speech bubble -- move it around, move the tail around, make it longer or shorter, whatever you like, just by manipulating it with your finger. Double tap on the speech bubble to bring up a keyboard and type your text. You also get a variety of stamps, like “POW!” and “Super!” and “Once upon a time…” which add color and style.

When you tap Save & Publish, you have the option to simply save to your photo album, or save and publish to Facebook and/or Twitter at the same time.

I found this universal app to be incredibly easy to use, and more importantly, just plain fun. Comic Strip - CS is definitely worth the price -- but one lucky winner gets a promo code, just in time for Thanksgiving!
