photoikku is a new application that lets you place "haiku" or "senryu" over an image to create a new form of poetry. Lay out up to 5 lines on the photo of your choice and you have your very own a visual poem. So easy to create and also to send just at that moment when you feel inspired, it makes for a wonderful way to share it with *words and images put together in a unique expression of yourself. This new mode of the age old art of creating verse gives new meaning to "poetry in motion".

Ratings and Reviews

Update solves initial problems.


I enjoy the poetic potential of image and word in this application now that the recent update has corrected the prolbems noted below rendered the application functional.

This would be a very enjoyable application if it worked. The controls for font selection, placement and orientation were not available, appeared once, then were gone for good. The font size slider bar never showed up, etc. The application is not functional in its present form I suggest that you wait for a version upgrade that works as described. I hope the developers can accomplish that because it will be a very fun artistic app when it works. If that happens I will happily re-submit a much higher application.

A Great App For Adding Text To Photos

Musing crow

While I have more than 100 apps - many of them geared toward photography - I've never written a review until now. I should do more of them.

As I was editing an image I realized that I wanted to add text so I went searching for apps that might allow me to do that. I saw this app mentioned on a Flickr group about IPhone apps and decided to have a look. I purchased it with limited expectations.

Turns out that this app is excellent! I'm very happy with it. It easily adds text to you image and includes a full range of color options and several ranges of text shape, height, width and size. There is only one font but with the options you have choices on how it looks. There is also a shadow text option which is a very nice.

I would like to see an update that includes :
1. a greater variety of available fonts
2. the ability to rotate the text

All in all this app is filled with potential and was precisely what I was looking for. I hope that there will be updates to include some added versatility. It's worth the cost IMHO.

Interesting and fun compositional toy


It took me a bit to figure out how to change the text orientation -- it takes a light tap on the text itself -- but this is a nicely diversionary little app to noodle about with.
