App of the Week | Over

Looking to step up your Instagram game? Meet: Over.

One of my favorite photography apps,  you can use Over to add text and artwork to your photos and create masterpieces in just a few minutes. I’ve been using the app for several years, but often forget how much fun it is and then go through an obsessive stage where I add words to everything.

Over costs $1.99 in the App Store & $3.99 on the Google Play Store — but I promise you its worth it. When you download the app, it comes preloaded with an extensive set of fonts + artwork. You can resize, rotate, layer and add color to both artwork and words. From there, you can save to your camera roll or share directly to Twitter/Instagram/Pinterest/messages from within the app. If you’re no stranger to spending $ in the app store, I highly recommend purchasing the Big Bundle for $4.99 (totally the best bang for your buck).

I especially like Over because it doesn’t make you resize your photo to a square like so many photography apps do. This way if I want to edit a saved Snapchat, it maintains its perfect size + shape, like this: Photo Mar 06, 1 53 24 PM( Can you tell which elements I added with Over? 😛 )

If you need some inspiration before creating your own, check out Over on Instagram here: You can also search the hashtag #bestofOver for the best of the best.

Lastly, right now Over is pairing up with @joshuafortuna + @michael_gilliam for a contest. Use the hashtag #overtypeincoffee to get entered to win a pound of coffee from the award-winning @sunergos_coffee and they might even feature your work! Check out my photo they shared last week:
