BOSTON, Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Did someone say snacks? Nope, we said snaps as in Garfield Snaps, the first photo studio mobile app featuring the famous fat cat Garfield and his friends. Created and published by Bare Tree Media, a leading developer and publisher of branded interactive entertainment for global audiences, Garfield Snaps allows fans to embed the characters made famous by the Garfield comic strip and TV show into their favorite photos and to share them via email, Facebook and Twitter. Bare Tree Media partnered with Paws, Inc. for a global license agreement to release Garfield Snaps, which is now available for download on iTunes for free!
After eating that pan of lasagna and taking a long nap this holiday, grab your iPhone or iTouch and start snapping fun photos starring Garfield, Odie, Jon and even Arlene. Garfield fans of all ages can easily customize photos by adding their favorite character images, themed frames, and sarcastic Garfield phrases. Unlike Garfield himself, you can be social and share photos directly from the app via email, Facebook and Twitter. Garfield Snaps works with iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, 5 and iPod touch (3rd, 4th, and 5th generations). So, wake up, get off the couch and download today!
"Garfield's iconic images and attitude are a perfect fit for 'photo bombing' with this app," said Robert Ferrari, CEO and founder of Bare Tree Media. "We are excited to offer Garfield fans around the globe a fun and engaging app bringing Garfield into their precious and silly photo moments through Garfield Snaps on iOS."
"Garfield is egocentric enough to think he'd improve ANY photo, not just those who are 'facially challenged'. Garfield Snaps is a great medium for the character -- both art and editorial should lend itself nicely to this app," said Jim Davis, Garfield's creator.
A version of Garfield Snaps is also planned for Android-based devices and coming soon! Fans should stay tuned for future announcements from Bare Tree Media. For more information or to download Garfield Snaps visit https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/garfield-snaps/id567124775?mt=8.
