Blackout Bard

By UberYogi

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


A charming digital experience to create Blackouts on the Go!
All you need: A block of text from the web, a keen eye to spot and link words & an iPhone or iPad.
OR (New in 2.0): From a Photo from photo album, select portions you'd like to keep and filter out the rest!

Traditionally, Blackout (Aka Erasure) Poetry consists of selecting words from a block of text, erasing the rest to carve out a whole new or hidden meaning.

Using the app, select words from existing text from the web, connect them. Dim out the rest. Style and export to the image gallery. Have your photos as wallpaper. Share your creations on social media or optionally prune them using your favourite editing tools. All this in just a couple of clicks.
Any kind of text as source can be used - news articles, passages from novels, even shopping lists. Choose from a set of carefully themed templates as the backdrop for your writing.
Highlight current events, give voice to social causes, find hidden meanings, inspire new thoughts. There's no particular technique though the fun happens when you create something new as opposed to just skimming words. Users have created small poems, haikus, etc with this.

And no - you do not have to be a writer nor a poet to create blackout poetry. And the experience is quite calming and meditative.

With each attempt a different word or phrase will catch your imagination!
With each style you will capture a different mood or phrase!

Steer through a treasure house of fresh ideas and thoughts!

Embrace all the above and express on existing expressions !
Tap away and create magic! Fill your lull moments with creativity!

What's New in Version 2.01

1] Bug Fixes:
a] Export pdf crash when using patterns: Fixed and feature revamped.
b] Compose screen was not allowing iPhone users to hide keyboard nor edit. Tapping on screen will now hide keyboard and user can edit any portion of the compose field.
c] Fixed Share option where users can directly copy and use the share option to blackout bard from an external source (browser mails, books etc). If the external app / browser allows sharing, a draft can be created without pasting the text onto the compose screen. (Click on more on the Share option and enable the Blackout Bard to share).
d] For image blackouts, now supports save to photo when no filter is applied.
2] Revamped pdf support to split the image into multiple A4 size pages instead of 1 monolithic page.
3] New App preview
