Send a message of many words by using images
Regular follows know that I am a fan of taking pictures with my iPhone for both work and pleasure. Work images can be a snap shot of a whiteboard full of information to use later, a screen shot of information on the iPhone, or pictures of an event that shows work in progress or the atmosphere. Please images are exactly what you expect, pictures of my lovely wife or of our energetic Bichon, Luna.
Several posts ago, I covered a couple applications I have been using to send images with frames and/or text via email. For more than a week, I have pulled both in favor of Lifecards. An app that enables multiple images to be placed together, text added, resulting in a single document I can send.
Lifecards includes a large collection of templates (350!) in 20 categories. Each category is a group of templates around a particular theme. Templates have spaces for a variety of picture quantities from 1 to 4 and text boxes. If you change your mind about a template you chose you can change to another without having to reassign images. Images can be resized and twisted with tools that work the way you would think they should. Text editing is done through the usual iPhone / Touch text screen, with the added feature to change the font, text size and colors. Lifecards works equally well in portrait or landscape views:
If you need to stop working, closing the application saves your project to finish later. When done, the template, images and text is wrapped up into a single image which is saved to the built in Photos -> Photo Albums.
Here is one image I put together in just over a minute to send out to our team about a problem with desktop images that were effecting our presentations:
