On my iPhone…Over text overlay app

Over icon

Over for iOS

An app that does one thing really well -- allow you to overlay text -- in a variety of fonts -- over your iPhone photos. I didn't have much use for this until I started doing a blog series entitled Garden Alphabet. In this series -- and hopefully an upcoming poster -- I highlight a plant or flower and overlay the name on the photo in an artistic fashion. I started with the free version of Over, entitled Overgram. This free app adds an Overgram watermark to each image and limits the number of fonts you can use, so once the series became a regular feature, I upgraded to the paid version. Here are 3 samples...

You can crop your photos into the square format desired by Instagram or you can use the full frame photo. Annotated pictures can be saved to your camera roll (and then to your computer) sent via email of forwarded off to Instagram and other services for  further use.

Over is a an app for very specific uses, but if you have those needs, it is an excellent choice.

From the iTunes App Store...

Add beautiful text to your photos and share them on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr & Instagram. Create inspirational, informational or even funny images to share quickly and easily. In only a few seconds you can add captions, quotes, jokes, memes, poems or anything else you can think of to a photo.
