Buncee Bits is a cute little app that lets you draw or place text over a photo you take on your phone, or on any other image. It’s a fun way to kill time, or create a personalized message to send to your friends and family.
Buncee Bits is perfect for sending a birthday or get well soon greeting, or just creating something unique quickly to say “I love you.” The interface is very clean, easy to navigate, and all that means it is also easy to create exactly the text and style you need for your project.
The app comes loaded with tons of high res backgrounds to play with, in the event that you don’t have any good pictures or photo ops lined up. In addition to the hundreds of pre-loaded backgrounds you get when you pony up your 99 cents, Buncee Bits also gives you a handful of different fonts to play with when you customize your little project.
You can save each “bit” you create in your photo album, or get social using Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, email, or MMS. The bits are created to fit perfectly in the new Facebook timeline as well, which is a thoughtful feature.
All in all, Buncee Bits is pretty fun. However, while it does come pre-loaded with so many backgrounds and fonts, it still feels like it’s a bit underpowered for a pay-to-play app.
Given all the competition that’s out there, it seems like Buncee Bits oughta be a little more substantial. While it is good at what it sets out to do, it would be fun to have more pre-loaded design items, fonts, and other small touches.
Buncee Bits is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 4.0 or later. A small expedite fee was paid to expedite the publication of this iPhone app review.
