Poetics - create, write and share visual poetry

By Soulincode Inc.

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Poetics is a visual poetry app that combines moveable text with photographic imagery.

Take a picture and write anything you feel, whether a poem, one word or a caption.  Or start with text and add an image later.

At the touch of a finger, words playfully collide and interact, giving a physical feeling and connection as you scale, rotate, lift and drop them.

Poetics is flexible and saves your work as you create, ready to be shared anytime on Instagram, Facebook, SMS, printed postcards, and more.

Words and Pictures

Although there are other apps that allow you to add text to photos, with this app you feel like your cutting up words typed on paper and making a visual art collage reminiscent of the early cubist painters. I had some crashing issues after I first downloaded the app on my 6 plus but an uninstall and reinstall seemed to have fixed that issue. Kudos to the devs for responding to my support question so quickly (a little over an hour).I think this is an app for some serious artistic creations or for some not so serious fun. Thanks.

Still loving it

I truly love this app! I haven't seen anything like this before. I only wish we could have other sizes as well, like 1:1 or 4:3. Please make this option available in the next update. Thank you!

Update: no editing app has ever felt as great as this one! It's quite unique in what it does and does it well. Kudos to the awesome devs! Can't wait to see the next updates :)

Easy to use

Just started using this app and have enjoyed creating personalized photos. Not hard to navigate. Was able to create something I was happy with in the first few minutes of use. Can't wait to explore all the features.
