Garfield Daily pushes a daily comic strip of our dear lazy cat
Love Garfield? You can now get daily comic strips directly to your mobile device thanks to this app. Sounds great, isn't? Pushing daily comics and list them by date for a quick access is what this app basically does.
However, don't expect neither an outstanding design nor an intuitive interface. This is a simple, sober, minimalist app. Besides the comic strip displayed in the middle of the screen, there's a prev/next button, a today button to show today's comic strip, random, select date and two buttons to share it through Facebook and e-mail.
The idea is great. However, interface, design and connection (I've had some loading issues) should be enhanced to make this app fully usable.
Here are the nuts and bolts:
You can browse through the comic strips by touching the Previous or Next navigation buttons or by touching either side of the comic strip. Resize the comic strip by tapping or pinching. So simple even Odie can do it!
Like Garfield, this app is prone to nap attacks. After about 10 seconds of inactivity, the navigation, title, and toolbar will fade away. To bring them back, touch the middle of the comic strip. Touch again to have them disappear. Don’t worry — you can still change comics by touching the edges.
Have a special day in mind? Select any date since the beginning of the comic strip and then touch Set to see that day's comic strip. Easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy!
Looking for a specific theme – like lasagna, lazy or lederhosen? Search strips by typing a keyword or theme and touching the Done button on the keyboard. Then you can navigate through that list of strips.
Do you like surprises? Touch the Random button to see any strip selected by Odie. You never know what treasure awaits you (please be aware of probable drool).
Wanna post a strip for all your Facebook friends to see? First you need to login to Facebook. Then, simply post the selected comic strip on your Facebook wall along with a typically brilliant comment.
Wanna share a strip with your BFF? Email the selected comic and add a comment. You can also go to the Settings Page to activate your preference to put a copy of the comic strip into your Saved Photos folder on your Android when you email the strip.
Can’t get enough Garfield? On the Information page there is a More Garfield button which brings you to Garfield’s website with lots of links and awesome info about the famous fat cat.
