Screamager: Retro Style Message and Animation Player for PlayBook

screamager happy

When I first caught a glimpse of this new PlayBook app called Screamager, I wasn’t sure if many would find it useful. After reading the description on App World, my mind was instantly changed:

“Try the ultimate retro style message scroller and animation player for your Playbook. This application features an ultra realistic looking LED dot matrix screen capable of displaying scrolling messages and animations in 16 vibrant colors. Show messages in mirrored format for people to read in their rear view mirror. Play built in animations or your own creations. The best of all: Screamager is absolutely FREE. Try it now!”

There have been many times I have wanted to let drivers around me know something. Using the mirror effect on the scrolling text, I could tell someone in front of me, “Move over! You’re in the FAST lane!” Or I could show someone beside me a message saying, “Your trunk is open!” Or maybe a simple, “Call me! (insert fake number)”

The developer of Screamager, Marco Vlieg,  has posted a video demonsrating the features of the app. I found it interesting that he developed this for PlayBook first. He plans on porting to WebOS and iOS next.

Keep reading for the demo video and more screenshots.
