Over app is smart and simple


I had to check out the Over app after a feature story on its developer appeard on the front page of this morning's Courier-Journal. The article told how Aaron Marshall convinced his pregnant wife to let him spend their savings on an app that lets people put text over photos.

The app lets you snap a picture or select one from your camera roll. From there you enter a block of text, choose a font from a list of options, and set the size, color and position of the type. Your labelled photo can then by emailed or shared over the usual channels.

There's a free version in the iTunes App Store and a step-up version with more than 200 fonts that costs $1.99.

Between the two versions, Marshall said Over had been downloaded about 1.7 million times.

Yep, it's one of those "Why didn't I think of that?" ideas.
