[prMac.com] Waltham, Massachusetts - DK Pictures, the team behind www.doink.com, an animation website with 400,000 users worldwide and the Doink Animation & Drawing app for the iPad which is an AppStore Essential for Drawing and Painting, has released the Doink Express app for the iPhone. Doink Express is a fun, creative way to add life, interest and excitement to short messages. Doink Express gives users endless ways to communicate visually with photos, custom drawings or animations, Doink reusable art "props", and sound. Doinks can be shared everywhere...posted to Twitter, Facebook, e-mailed and direct doinked to friends' mobile devices.
According to Karen D. Miller, Doink co-founder and President, "Teens and adults love seeing their messages come to life with animations. Our tools have enabled the creative process for 400,000 users on the web and iPad and we are now excited to bring this fun to the iPhone & iPod touch. Our iPhone app has the added feature of combining photos and sounds, as well as animations and drawings. Even if a user can't draw, they can be creative by reusing thousands of animated and static art "props" (backgrounds, characters, etc.) created by other Doink users (on the web and iPad.) These doinks can be shared using all the popular social networks (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) and also in a stream for Doink friends to see. Fun to check out the doinks of other creative people from around the world or "direct doink" a message for only one person to see."
Tons of web and iPad users love Doink! Now the fun comes to the iPhone and iPod touch. Users can be creative anytime, anywhere... and they don't have to be great artists to make something great!
