If you’ve ever dreamed of creating your own crayfishes and trying them out in front of a crowd, you might want to give Crayfishery a go.
The app is simple enough to use and the photos of the cray fishes on offer are pretty decent too, although there’s a couple of small issues.
One is that you need to be in the mood for cray fish.
“The cray” is a term for a species of freshwater cray-fish found in the Pacific Ocean.
The other is that they’re not quite cray.
The cray are actually freshwater fish, but they’re a bit smaller and have a white-tipped tail.
“You need to get them wet,” the developers explain.
You can use a sponge or a plastic bag to help with this, but the developers also suggest that you try an ice cube tray, or just a plastic bowl.
And you can’t use cray water in the dishwasher, because it’s too acidic and could leach toxins from the crays.
“If you use the right dishwasher and you’re not careful, your cray will start to turn a light pink,” the website says.
Crayflip, which is available on iOS and Android, takes advantage of this by allowing you to turn the crayed fish into a cute little picture.
You choose what color the craying will be, and you then select a background colour, like black.
You’re then able to resize the picture to your liking, and if you have a photo of a cray, you can save it to your device as a picture, so you can look at it whenever you want.
Crays are great for children, too.
They can be made into the same colourful cartoon characters as in Cray Fishes, but there are also other things you can do with them.
The developers say that they’ve added the ability to draw with the crickets, but that they haven’t made it work in the app yet.
“There’s no tutorial or guide to the process yet,” they say.
“Please take a moment to check out the tutorial on how to draw cray flops, cray heads, and more.”
There’s also a section in the tutorial that explains how to use the app to create your own cartoon, and there’s also an explanation on how it works on the developer’s website.
So far, there’s not much more information available about the app other than that it’s free and has been in development for around six months.
You’ll need to download the app first, though.
If you’re interested in the CrayFishing app, there are currently over 1,300 photos on the app.
If there’s anything that you’d like to see, or a suggestion on how CrayFlip can make you think about the crêtes de cray better, feel free to leave a comment.
