Mood Caps: Written & Video iPhone App Review
The old saying that a picture is worth a thousand words certainly rings true, but what if you only want to choose a small handful? Better yet, what about actually placing those words on the photo itself?
Concept and Functionality:
With so many photo apps available, it’s pretty difficult for developers to set their app apart from the rest. Mood Caps definitely brings a lot to the table by allowing you to quickly and easily add humorous captions to your photos. The app is extremely easy to use and it doesn’t take any time at all to start creating funny works of art.
To create photo captions, simply choose whether you want to take a photo directly within the app or upload an existing one. After that, you can choose from a wide variety of moods that reflect your photo. From basic emotions such as happy, sad, and mad too silly, jealous and lonely, there’s definitely a mood for every occasion. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, there’s a Random option. Mood Caps will then superimpose a generated caption over your photo.
As far as the quality of captions that are available, many are pretty hilarious. I didn’t come across any that were too offensive (though quite a few sure do push the envelope), so Mood Caps should be pretty safe for everyone.
According to Mood Caps’ App Store description, there are hundreds of captions to choose from. You can even go a step further and adjust the position and size of your caption. The only feature that’s lacking is the ability to customize font styles and colors. You can even add artsy filters to your captioned photo. Also, it seems like the app automatically crops photos, which could definitely be a problem.
Naturally you’d want to be able to share the final product, and Mood Caps helps you do that quickly and easily. Once you’re done creating your captioned photo, you can share via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, email, or you can save it to your library.
Seeing as this review covers the free version of Mood Caps, I wanted to mention the fact that there are quite a few features you can’t access. For example, the free version doesn’t allow you to create your own custom captions and it limits you to how many times you can refresh captions.
Mood Caps is free to download from the App Store. Though lacking a few useful features, it’s still a great app. The ads aren’t intrusive and are only visible on the main page. If you’re looking for a fun new way to add a sense of humor to those awkward photos, I definitely recommend checking out Mood Caps.
Mood Caps is compatible with iPhone, iPod and iPad. Requires iOS 5.1 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review, plus a video production fee.
