eMarquee app review: scrolling text marquees

Reviews

Introduction

If you’re looking for a fun way to get your message across to someone, regardless of whether it’s a marriage proposal or a vitriolic barrage of insults (or something in between!), you’re sure to find eMarquee for iPhone and iPad to be very useful.

The best iPhone apps for emoji

I really like the idea behind this app and would love to recommend it to you but I think you’re only going to get reliable functionality from it if you own an older iOS device or have a version of iOS older than around 4 or 5, so be sure to check out the Pros & Cons section below for a little more on this.

Create Up to 10,000 Marquees

This app has been designed to allow you to create scrolling text marquees to get your message across to people in a bold and stark manner, with the option to create a more or less unlimited number of marquees limited to 10,000.

The best iPad apps for phone calls

If you can get this rather outdated app to work then you’ll be able to fully customize your marquees with factors such as scrolling speed, text style and size, color, and even emoticons, plus you can add a background image to your marquees for a slightly more personal touch if you choose.

Create Infinite Scrolling Text

eMarquee even allows you to create infinitely long marquee messages if needed, so if for some strange reason you want to sit through a scrolling text version of, say, the Bible or Lord of the Rings, or maybe even Stephen King’s The Stand, then you might like this!

The best email apps for iPad

That’s about all there is to say about this app, so if you’ve got an older iOS device then you might want to check it out, otherwise I’d recommend looking for a more recent app with ongoing maintenance from the developer.

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • Create scrolling text marquees to get your message across clearly
  • Create a practically unlimited number of marquees (limited to 10,000)
  • Fully customize your marquees with factors such as scrolling speed, text style and size, color, and even emoticons
  • Add a background image to your marquees for a slightly more personal touch
  • Allows you to create infinitely long marquee messages if needed

Cons

  • The general consensus seems to be that this app is temperamental at best due to frequent crashing and a lack of compatibility for more recent versions of iOS, so you might want to think twice before downloading it onto your more modern iPhone or iPad

Poorly received

Final Words

I thought I’d give eMarquee a review because I do like it and think that it should be refreshing for owners of outdated iPhones to have an app they can enjoy using, but until the developers get off their butts and update it you might want to steer clear otherwise!
