bitstrips love: meet momma’s cartoon self.

a bitstrips comic

If you’ve ever wanted to have your own comic strip but lacked any and all drawing skills / creativity…

If you are hiding from the kids and looking for something silly to do until they find you…

If you secretly love making avatars and you’re looking for another excuse to Toon yourself…

If a normal status update with no pictures of you as a cartoon just sounds too boring…

Have you met Ted Bitstrips?

This neato groovy Facebook app lets you create your own avatar and create comic strip status updates and greeting cards to share with friends and family. It also auto generates little comics for you every day starring you and any of your friends who also use Bitstrips. It’s kind of awesome.

I found the app loaded really well on my Windows 8 PC, the options to customize your avatar are quite impressive and extensive. You can even move the limbs around for all the people and animals in the comic to suit your preferences. Add speech bubbles and make your own funny captions or use the handy captions provided by Bitstrips if you are feeling less than creative / lazy.

Will this app cure cancer? Probably not – but it definitely promises a giggle or two and a fun way to kill some time between diaper changes and peanut butter and jelly sandwich making.

Are you using Bitstrips? What’s your favorite Facebook game or app?
