Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

COMIC LIFE allows users to take their ordinary, everyday photos and turn them into an exciting comic book adventure. However, the level of customization feels somewhat limited. The available templates are bland and have no special flavor or feeling, and the number of fonts, speech bubbles, and canned photos is limited. Additionally, because it acts more like a computer program than a mobile app, the controls are sometimes clunky. As a result, this app does have value and anyone with a little creativity can unleash a fair share of masterpieces with this, but it may fall short of some users' expectations.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
