Cowsay for Android

Apk file size: 44.0 KB

Cowsay will turn text into happy ASCII cows, with speech (or thought) balloons.

If you don't like cows, ASCII art is available to replace it with some other creatures (Tux, the BSD daemon, dragons, and a plethora of animals, from a turkey to an elephant in a snake).

Port of the original command line application "cowsay", made by some FIXME.CH hackerspace members during 28C3 in Berlin.

Awesome sauce Edit: not great on lollipop; doesn't line up well. Amazing port. Well, more than a port, this is full of new features and integrated into common system tools. Sending as picture works a lot better than text (LG nexus 5/ android 4.4.4) , as the text ASCII art ends up aligned badly. But I guess it'd be aligned differently on the recipient device anyway so there's no way to make that perfect. Anyway awesome app. Loved the original on Linux, love this. Thanks!

It's ok , but.... I'll give it 3 stars ... but it only comes out as pictures , not actual text styles . Lame !

Can not copy or share Copy or share action doesn't show on acer iconia tab a500 honeycomb. Before you fix it, it's useless

Fun, but (still) no export on my device I like it a lot, but the PNG export feature does not show up on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. Also I can't copy to clipboard because there is no button or menu to do so. Would appreciate it being fixed :-)

Cool. It came up random letters on my text but when i texted it to my buddy she said she saw it right. Also, downloads Japanese cartoons on your phone... :/ other than that, good ^-^

Stupid Maybe you should rethink making apps. You can't export or copy and paste. This doesn't even deserve one star.

A Google User

Ok Doesn't work so well. Lines aren't meeting up right.
