iPad app

My desire to create this app comes through my own fascination of combining images with text, first on film, then using a computer, and now on the iPad. The tactile experience of moving text freely on the screen is unmatched. The app is available in the iTunes app store.

image/words is a poetic discovery tool for artists and visual people. Just choose a photo from your album (or from one of our publicly hosted images), add freeform text and you’re done! Experiment with your text, thoughts or poems. The text can be large, small, transparent or opaque, in color and with a variety of fonts.

When you’re not feeling creative, image/words connects you to our library of images with texts to get you started. We plan future updates that will provide additional and more refined typographical controls and a universal version that will work on an iPhone.
