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, Tumblr and more.
