Welcome to 1.2 – our first major upgrade since our launch back in March.
Here’s what’s new on the site:
- New design. Bitstrips is ready for prime time with a fresh look and improved navigation.
- New art! Check the builder for new props, effects and scenery. And new clothing will be released throughout the summer!
- Real Names. Find your friends easier by searching for their real names! NOTICE: If you don’t want your real name to be visible, you can opt-out here.
- The “Cartoon Cannon”. Check page one for our revolutionary new tool – making comics has never been faster.
- Kudos ratings – for all those strips that are amazing but not necessarily ha-ha funny. Also suitable for strips that are both funny AND extra-awesome.
- Default to Super-Builder – skip the Easy Comic Builder for faster loading – set it here.
- Character Directory – check out the lastest and greatest stars of Bitstrips!
And if you haven’t been here in a while, here are some new features we’ve added since our launch:
- Scene Builder
- Improved Search w/tags
- Flagging/Content Filtering
- RSS feeds
And there’s still more to come for 1.2 this summer – next up is new clothing, which we’ll be adding regularly over the next few months! Expect new upgrades to the builders and more special features, coming soon.
