App Candy Productions has released Text Candy, a new app that allows users to send fun and creative text images to friends via e-mail, SMS and Facebook. Text images, or “textpics” are images that appear hand-drawn and are made up of printable text characters allowing them to be easily transmitted through text-based communications channels such as SMS. Text Candy allows users to create their own textpics or choose a library image from any of 10 different categories such as movie characters, animals, cartoons and holidays. Text Candy is available from the App Store in two versions: the full Text Candy Pro ($2) and a free version, Text Candy Lite.
