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.

Elsewhere Online: AT&T's Spam Filter Gets A Bit Too Aggressive

This story from TechDirt lays out yet another reason I recommend that folks DON'T use the email provided to them by their ISP. My typical recommendation right now is to get a Gmail account instead. It also points out why I want to manage all my SPAM on my end, without pre-filtering from an ISP. I will gladly manage my spam if it helps to insure that I see as many of my "real" messages as possible. Again, Gmail's tools work pretty good in this regard. Having an alternative email account also insures you will keep the same email, even if you decide to leave your current ISP. Witness all the folks holding onto AOL accounts just to keep their AOL email address. Thank goodness at least that is free now. AT&T's Spam Filter Gets A Bit Too Aggressive You can certainly understand why ISPs offer spam filters. It's a service for users who don't want to be totally bombarded with spam. But what I've never understood is that these ISPs rarely give the us

On my iPhone…IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS

IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS My best description of IFTTT, both their main web site, and this new iOS app is "a scripting language for the We." It allows you to set up "recipes" that watch one particular service, like Feedly, Evernote, Gmail and more, and then take action on another service whenever a particular action occurs. I use this to automatically save my shared items from Feedly and elsewhere into an Evernote Notebook and also use it to post automatically post information on a variety of services. The iOS app adds to this functionality by allowing you to take various actions on your phone and triggering IFTTT actions whenever they occur. In the case of the iPhone, initiating actions can include adding new contacts to your iPhone, taking a new picture and more.  For more complete information on how IFFTT works, visit ifttt.com    From the iTunes App Store...
