Disclaimer: I received the following app for review, but all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
I thought that today’s Phone Dump Friday would be a great time to discuss a new app on the market: OBaby. It is a great photo-based app that lets you add in text to your pictures. Not just any text, however, but beautiful already-completed text options and doodles done by an artist.
The text options are based on pregnancy and baby-related pictures, with categories such as dates, doodles, borders, anytime, announcements, pregnancy, labor & birth, adoption, first year, second year, and family & friends.
I have been playing with OBaby+ on my phone for a couple weeks now, and I LOVE it to add just that extra touch to my photos. I haven’t posted too many on Instagram yet, as I wanted to keep them secret until now. But now that I have done today’s Phone Dump Friday, get ready!
OBaby has a $0.99 version and a version for $14.99 (currently on sale for $9.99) with more artwork. There is also a section in the app where you can suggest more artwork. I plan on using that feature to request some more twin-specific wording, as well as something like “siblings.”
I love that you can save your pictures in a variety of sizes, so it will be fantastic for regular 4×6 photos AND Instagram squares.
The biggest drawback is that you can’t use the alphabet to create any word you want, and there isn’t a search function. Besides that, I’m in love with this app!
Here’s a quick tutorial: first you pick the picture and the size you want to crop it to (you have lots of choices). Then you can browse through the different categories and pick the types of words/doodles that you want to add to your photo (you can see all the ones you selected in the teal space in the bottom of this example picture). Then, you can add those to your photo, choosing the color of the text/doodle, resizing, and rotating it as needed. As you can see in the picture, you can also have more than one decoration on your picture, if you so choose.
Here is my phone dump for this week, thanks to OBaby+! Remember, if you want to do a phone dump on your own blog, grab the button using the code below!
