NEW: Mail a postcard right out of the app!

“I have more than 70 apps on my iPad, and this really is one of my favorites!” – B. Hirschi, Ocala, FL

"Image/Words is just what it sounds like: a simple iPad App to put words on top of images. We like." - Design Observer

image/words is a simple tool for artists and visual people. Just choose a photo from your album (or use one from our free-to-use library of images), add freeform text and you’re done! Experiment with your text, thoughts or poems. Or just make custom LOLcats. The text can be large, small, transparent or opaque and now in any color you choose.

NEW: Mail a postcard right from the app

When you’re done and happy with your creation, make an iPad slideshow of all your hard work. If your friends are too far away to hand your iPad over to them, you can email your creation or share it on Facebook straight from the app. And if you just want to take your images and go home, save them to your library—the high resolution images you sync via iTunes will retain their size.

When you’re not feeling creative or when your cats aren’t doing anything particularly funny, image/words connects you to our library of images with texts to get you started. We are already planning future updates that will provide additional and more refined typographical controls and a universal version that will work on an iPhone.

Similar to how app icons are managed on the iPad's main screen, you can hold your finger on any image in your library for more than a second to enter edit mode (the images will jiggle). You will be able to delete a photo or if you have more than one, rearrange them, which is useful if you want to run a slideshow in a certain order.

What's new in version 1.3
NEW FEATURE: Mail a postcard right out of the app with your creation! It's as simple as importing your photo, writing your favorite text on it and selecting "Mail a Postcard" from the Share menu.

Also: Minor bug fixes; improved icons.
Our verdict: Ok
  • + image/words is a highly rated app (4-star).
