What's New in Version 1.2
Improving iPad 1 compatibility
Good But Could Be Much More
Like other found poetry apps (or refrigerator poetry magnet app), this has a decent word bank and the ability to save or email what you create.
But I don't know when it was last updated. The other options includes words from a MLK speech, a Shakespeare sonnet, or a historical document. I'd love to see more sonnets by shakespeare added, or from other 17th century poems.
There's a glitch that if you make word to big the text disappear
