There are quite a few text overlay apps available. Over is one of the slicker ones in the App Store that lets you add text and other effects to your photos.

I’ve got a few download codes to give away this week. Keep reading for more about Over and your chance to snag a copy.

over, text overlay, iPhoneOver lets you add text and artwork to your photos and share them on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr & Instagram. Create inspirational, informational or even funny images to share quickly and easily. It’s one of the easier text overlay apps available and you can quickly add and edit captions, quotes, jokes, memes, poems or anything else you can think of to a photo.

The app comes standard with over 30 fonts and for a buck you can unlock a lot more. The standard fonts are mostly Google Webfonts and other freeware fonts. Don’t be fooled by free, though. The selection of fonts is actually very good and there’s a wide variety of traditional typefaces, scripts, hands, and fun fonts. Even with the standard selection, it’s easy to set good looking type.

There are also several sets of dingbat fonts that you can use to add artwork and embellish your photos.

Both type and art are very easy to set, resize, move and edit. Simply tap to place or edit. Over gives you subtle visual cues to indicate that you’ve selected an object.

The interface is as slick as the effects – very clean, modern and easy to figure out. No retro skeumorphism here, but some great looking colors and geometry that create a simple, uncluttered interface. You can work with both standard and square format images in Over and it saves pics up to 2048×2048 pixels — that’s 4 megapixels. Lots of sharing options in app.

Over doesn’t set type on a path or let you rotate lines of text, but for straightforward adding a quick note to an image, it’s one of the fastest and easiest to use. It’s getting a lot of 4 and 5 star user ratings in the App Store and I would agree that this is a good app for what it does.

Over is $1.99. This app is designed for both iPhone and iPad. Requirements: Compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 6.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
