This month's free app of the month is Make Beliefs Comix. Use your imagination to create your own world in this comic strip generator. Add thought and speech bubbles in a variety of languages and with two, three, or four panels. You can send a comic strip to someone through email or social networks. This app is great to use in the classroom to show and communicate concepts recently learned, to illustrate a story, or to present a project.
