Win the Pearls Before Swine iPad app





There's a new Pearls Before Swine iPad app called Only the Pearls:

This behind-the-scenes app from Stephan Pastis, the creator of the syndicated comic strip Pearls Before Swine, includes 250 of the best strips in full color, 12 animated strips, 22 videos of Pastis sharing insights (and clowning around), 125 audio commentaries, and more.

Stephan Pastis is the creator of Pearls Before Swine, the daily comic strip centered around an angry Rat, an innocent Pig, and a fraternity of hungry crocodiles that has earned him devoted fans worldwide.

For Only the Pearls, Pastis has personally selected his favorite 250 strips from the first ten years of Pearls Before Swine. More than half of the strips in this dynamic app include the cartoonist's funny and revealing audio and video commentary, created exclusively for the app. All strips are presented here in color (many for the first time), and a dozen are animated to bring the Pearls characters to life.
This video shows a bit of the app, but mostly features Stephan Pastis's slapstick antics:



You can download the app at iTunes. I also have one download to give away. For a chance to win, simply comment on this post and include your email so I can contact you if you win. One comment per person, and this contest is open worldwide. (Just remember, you'll need an iPad and access to iTunes.) I'll pick a winner on Monday.
