Create beautiful photo poems by easily adding text to a photo image. Students take a photo using the iPad (or open a saved photo from the camera roll) and then add their poetry text to the image. The size, style, tilt, and font may be customized. Upgrading the app will remove ads and provide additional image style options. Completed photo poems may be shared by saving to Twitter, Instagram, other apps, email or saving to the camera roll.
Students can use this app to create their own found poetry. Developed by Read, Write, Think and the National Council for the Teachers of English this app allows students to create poetry using word banks from existing famous works or by adding new words to create a piece of poetry by moving individual pieces of text. Students can select different backgrounds and share their found poems by saving to photos, sending as email, sending to the printer or saving to an online account.
