Visual Poetry app review: don't just say it



We've got a rather cool way to display and share your poetry that is more visual than the typical poem. The Visual Poetry app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone gives users the ability to create poetry and then see it transform before their eyes into a mosaic of words. Each poem will take on its own beautiful style and shape thanks to the symbols you are given. You can get even more creative and draw your own shapes if you choose. When you're done you'll be able to save and then share your creation for all to enjoy.

Turn Words into Visuals

The Visual Poetry app is able to take your words and then transform them into visuals of different colors, styles, and shapes. The end result is unique and quite beautiful. Be sure to save your poem and then share it with family and friends. You are given 24 different symbols to use and if you'd rather you can make your own shapes. Functionality couldn't be easier just pinch, drag, rotate, and resize the words. The mosaic will take place instantly and before your eyes making for a really cool experience.

The best iPhone apps for poets

In the app's most recent update there were new styles, shapes, and fonts added. The pre-sets are also much easier to use, giving users a smoother experience. The app scores a solid 3.5 out of five stars from users who describe the app as excellent, the best text art app, and more. The one thing that you seem to read over and over from customers is that they want more: more pre-sets, more shapes, more colors, and more styles.

The User Experience

As mentioned the Visual Poetry app makes it very simple to create your own word collage that displays words in a really creative and cool way. You start by picking which style or shape you want to use or draw it yourself. Next you type in your poetry and watch the mosaic form. The last step is just the editing one where you can rotate and resize the words for the perfect effect. This is a great app for students and teachers who want to give kids a new appreciation for poetry and a new way to express themselves.

The app is very easy to use and there really aren't a ton of added tools and features. I have to agree with users that it would be nice to see more additions here just to give you that extra bit of variety.
