Phoetic - App Review

Fancy creating a word cloud based on a photo?

This is just what you've been looking for.

Now for the ACIDS test:

There are 4 easy steps to creating your word cloud:

1. Create or choose a shape
There are quite a number of shapes that come with the App (including animals, people, and travel) or, you can create your own or even use a photo (those with plenty of contrast work best).

2. Choose a word list
This can be from text (simply copy and paste from another App and choose a font), from a list, or manually. The words can also be edited.

3. Adjust the settings
Change colour, detail, orientation, as well as word placement (spacing, maximum size, maximum number of words, orientation.

4. Generate your word cloud
This is fully automated, just touch the button.

The App Costs a nominal $1.

This is an easy way to create word clouds and have a lot of control over the final outcome.

The App works as described, although some clouds can take a little time to generate (up to about a minute), although simpler ones are very quick.

The App needs access to your photo library if you choose to use this function. Clouds can be shared directly to Facebook and Twitter.

ACIDS Test Rating:
