iPhotoCap: iPhone App Written and Video Review
Believe it or not, one of our favorite genres on the iPhone isn’t some fancy arcade spinoff, nor is it the high-end productivity number. In fact, one of our favorite genres is the simple, humble and hilarious photo novelty application. That’s why we’re so stoked about today’s review, as we’re brining you a full look at the excellent and cheap iPhotoCap by developer Rob Green. The app makes it easy to add funny and unique captions to your photos, and with a wealth of social sharing options, there’s no end to where your media may end up. For our full review, simply slide on down below the break!
Concept and Functionality
The drive behind iPhotoCap can best be summed up this way: The app wants to make it easy and quick for you to add a caption to any and all of your iPhone’s photos. It does this through a simplistic and efficient interface, but the magic all starts with your actual picture. You can load these via the Photo Gallery, or the app makes it quick to snap a new one directly from the camera.
Once that’s been loaded up, you start adding captions by using the bar along the top. Just type in whatever you’d like to say, and then hit the small blue arrow at the side. The app then immediately adds your words in a familiar font styling to the photo itself. In this way, you can very quickly caption a photo to send to a friend, make an Internet meme, or do just about anything else that requires both text and a photo. In addition, the app comes with an absolute mountain of social options, which means you’re at liberty to share your photos to just about any location you can think of: Including popular areas like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Design and Interface
If there’s anything the genre suffers from most, it’s poor app design. Thankfully, though, iPhotoCap has none of the usual issues! The interface could’t be simpler to understand or to use. Also, we’re quite fond of the way the social functionality has been included: A simple tap produces an huge list of options to export to, which is both good design and efficient. However, we did have some trouble figuring out how to add two captions. We’re still not sure how it’s done without saving your photo first, and then adding a new text line. Either way, though, iPhotoCap is a rock-solid effort that could’t be easier on the mind than it is on the eyes.
Best of all, the app is free in the App Store: No strings attached, no adverts to worry about, nothing! It’s completely without any overhead, which means you’ve got no reason not to download it and give it a go. If you’ve been waiting for a new novelty photo app to try out, there’s no other app we’d recommend more than iPhotoCap.
iPhotoCap requires iOS 5.1 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
