November 16, 2013 Apps No Comments Email Email

Sending special messages and greetings just got more interesting. FireScribe ( is a new photo editing and messaging app that transforms any picture into a fiery animation.

For just .99 cents, users can create and send unlimited animations; FireScribe is available for download on the App Store:

FIRESCRIBE PERSONALIZED MESSAGE“When people see FireScribe in action, they want to try it immediately,” explained the app’s creator, James Wadley. “It’s a unique and creative way to send a memorable, personalized message. As more people begin sharing FireScribe movies, I expect the momentum to grow and for the app to earn a worldwide audience.”

Wadley continued: “The versatility of FireScribe is one of its best features. It’s compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Everything from anniversary and birthday greetings to a simple ‘Hello’ is more exciting when spelled out with fire. And of course, I made the app so simple that even kids can use it.”

FireScribe users will find that the app has no learning curve. Users start by choosing a background image, then adjusting the image size and adding nighttime effects. Background images can be pulled from the device’s gallery, from the user’s Facebook account, or simply taken on the spot. The app has built-in tools, such as a dusk slider and a crop tool, to help make the image look ideal. Once the image is finalized, users can type in their custom message, with room for 3 lines of text at 14 characters each; FireScribe even allows for heart and smiley face emoticons. The finished message can be previewed and then sent via an email message, text message, or posted to Facebook or YouTube.

Optimized for iPhone 5, FireScribe takes advantage of Apple’s cutting-edge retina display. Finished video greetings consist of a custom message spelled out one letter at a time in flames, complete with sizzling sound effects.

The custom message market niche is crowded, but FireScribe sets itself apart by combining something old with something new: the inspiration behind the app is the traditional firework lattice message. Today’s instant sharing technologies bring this art form into the twenty-first century.

While FireScribe works beautifully with photos taken by the user, the app also comes loaded with a gallery of professionally shot background images, just in case the backyard feels a little boring. An October 1 update added even more images to the already well-stocked selection. Startling backgrounds include the Eiffel Tower, Times Square in New York and the Sydney Opera House.

In addition to the paid app, a free Lite version of FireScribe is also available. Although users won’t be able to use their own photos with this version, they will have access to a select number of gallery images from which to create personalized video greetings.
