Version 2.2 brings all the key Comic Life 2 features to the Windows platform: full template support; advanced balloon control and text flow for precision layout; predefined and freeform shapes for more creative expression, multiple export options, and an enhanced user interface that combines the ease of the original Comic Life with an intuitive layout for quickly accessing advanced editing tools. For the first time on Windows, Comic Life 2 users also have the advantage of an integrated spell check system (a much requested feature from the classroom) and can export comics as PDF files for easier publishing and sharing. The application user interface and spell check dictionaries are available in, English (including a UK English dictionary), Dutch, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

 

With version 2.2 all Comic Life 2 users can now export their comics as e-books in the ePub format, allowing their creations to be read in Apple’s iBooks or on Amazon’s Kindle or Barnes & Noble’s Nook. Also supported is the CBZ format so that comics created in Comic Life 2 can be read in a variety of popular comic reader apps on many different platforms.

 

Comic Life for iPad 1.2 hosts a new set of import and export options that make creating and sharing comics on your iPad even easier than before. New features include iTunes file syncing, exporting to Dropbox, WebDAV support, and high quality option when saving photos to your Photo Library.

 

The Comic Life Archive format allows comics to be shared with all the latest editions of Comic Life, meaning a user can start a project on their iPad and finish it on any desktop with Comic Life 2 or vice-versa.
