Regardless of which platform you're on, sending text messages is pretty boring. The folks behind comiXchat think they have the solution to that, however, with an app that turns your short-form correspondences into comic strips. More than just throwing avatars onto a static background, though, the app promises real-time changes to character position, facial expression and camera angles among other things, based on implied emotion, tone and attitude. And if any of that goes horribly wrong, you can share the comics either per-pane or the entire conversation via your social media network of choice. For it to work, you need to rope your friends into downloading it too. Ad-supported, free versions are available on Android, iOS and Windows Phone and if you'd like a preview of what it all looks like in action, there's a dubstep-accompanied video just below.
