To iPhone 1st, iPhone 3G and iPod touch (1st and 2nd generation) users: Please DO NOT update/install Banner 1.5.2. It’s not shown correctly. I’ve already fixed the problem and submitted a new version to Apple. Please wait for a while. Sorry for your inconvenience. It works fine with iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S and iPod touch (3rd generation and later).

Banner is a LED-matrix-like display into which you can put any message. The application has the following features:
- You can enter five messages and have them scroll across the screen individually or sequentially.
- You can adjust the scrolling speed from very slowly to very quickly.
- You can set the program to require a double tap to open the editor in order to prevent it from accidentally opening
- You can select from 6 shapes and any color for the LED display
The length of each message is 10,000 pixels long in "Banner 1.1" (this application) , up from 512 pixels long in "Banner Free 1.0". You can create a 50,000 pixel long message if you use all five messages together. For reference, Picasso's famously long name, "Pablo Diego José Francisco de ... Picasso" is 132 characters and 1,107 pixels long.
The scroll speed in "Banner 1.1" is four times faster than in "Banner Free 1.0". For example, it takes about 5.2 second to scroll the phrase "2061:Max Odyssey" in "Banner 1.1", which takes about 19.2 seconds in "Banner Free 1.0".
