NARR8 Brings Independent Motion Comics to Android Users

Feb 20, 2013

Motion comics service NARR8 has finally launched on Android. What this app does is provide independent comics, mostly with fantasy and sci-fi bents (also, apparently a lot of anthropomorpic animals) to users for free. These aren’t just static comics, these are motion comics that incorporate animation and sound as part of an interactive production in order to help bring the stories to life. Motion comics have popped up in various sources, often in digital video stores as tie-ins to comic book movies. However, these are original stories being given the motion comic treatment. As well, all the stories are currently free, with new episodes of each story being released regularly. The app was previously iPad-only, but it now has a home on Android devices, including phones as well as tablets, it appears. The graphics are all optimized for HD devices, too. The app is free to download from Google Play, though it requires at minimum an Ice Cream Sandwich device, so some older tablet owners in particular may miss out.
