Scroll 'n Roll - Text Marquee - App Review

You know those displays that scroll at the bottom of your television screen during news programmes, or on public transport, or in shop windows... well here you can use your iOS device to generate a similar effect.

Now for the ACIDS test:

The interface is very straight forward.
Enter the following information, in any order that suits you:

1. The text that you want to scroll
2. Choose a font from the 10 available
3. Choose the speed at which you want the scrolling to operate, from a leisurely right to left display to demonic speed.
4. Choose the text colour from the 7 options
5. Choose the background colour from the 7 options (obviously these latter two options cannot be the same, and the App even takes care to remind you of the fact)
6. Press Scroll

It really is as simple as that. You can also post to Facebook or Tweet your message directly from the App with a simple copy and paste.

The App is free. The only advertising is that the default Tweet or Facebook post is promotion for the App... but as stated earlier, you can also publish your own post, and for a free App, there are no complaints.

If you want to brighten up your shop display and have a spare iPad why not use it? You might also have a message scrolling across to keep you focused/motivated... although you won’t be using your iOS device at the same time.

The App is simple and works every time, just like all Apps should.

The App is self-contained so there are no issues. Just be careful if you enter a message while messing around that you do not then post it accidentally on a social network. The default promotional message could well save YOUR blushes here.

ACIDS Test Rating:
At this price (free) you should try it.

  6. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.

    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on various websites forr about a year and
    am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress
    content into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

  7. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you're
    working with? I'm looking to start my own blog in the near future but
    I'm having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
