Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) February 19, 2009 — Uclick today announced that The Argyle Sweater is now available on Apple’s App Store in a series of three new 99 cent applications, bringing the best of the hit comic to the revolutionary iPhone and iPod touch.
“If you’re among the millions of comic fans who’ve been experiencing a void since Gary Larson retired, The Argyle Sweater on Apple’s App Store is just what the doctor ordered,” said Uclick CEO Douglas Edwards. “The Argyle Sweater has won new fans everywhere it’s been introduced and people will love how it looks on iPhone and iPod touch’s stunning widescreen Multi-Touch displays.”
Uclick has captured the full-color and bizarre humor of Scott Hilburn’s smash-hit single panel cartoon and brought it to the revolutionary iPhone and iPod touch. Hilburn launched The Argyle Sweater in the fall of 2006 on a Uclick site for up-and-coming amateur cartoonists. A few months later, Uclick signed Hilburn to an online distribution agreement and moved the strip to GoComics.com, where it quickly won rave reviews and web traffic that rivaled more established features. Now syndicated in print by Universal Press Syndicate, the cartoon has found a home in hundreds of daily newspapers, in desk calendars, and greeting cards.
The Argyle Sweater, Volumes 1, 2 and 3 are now available for $0.99 each from Apple’s App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/.
Uclick has created other comic apps for the iPhone and iPod touch, including Bone, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, GODLAND, Halo & Sprocket, as well as webcomic collections Pibgorn, Basic Instructions and We the Robots and the manga hit Dramacon. Uclick comic apps for Apple’s App Store take full advantage of Apple’s innovative Multi-Touch user interface on iPhone and iPod touch, making it easy to zoom in to get a closer look at any panel.
