Cowsay for Android

Cowsay for Android


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!
