Add text to your iPhone photos with Tiny Post

It's like Instagram with three lines of text.

If you've grown bored with Instagram and are looking for a new photo-sharing app, Tiny Post might fit the bill. This free iPhone app lets you add three lines of text to photos, creating one of those hilarious or poignant images you undoubtedly see daily in your Facebook News Feed or elsewhere on the Internet.

Tiny Post boasts a slick interface and a number of sharing options. After signing in via Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail, you can find other Tiny Post users to follow by tapping the people button in the upper-right corner. Tap the camera button in the lower-left corner to snap a photo (or load one from your Camera Roll). After snapping your shot, you can add up to three lines of text before uploading it to your feed. Tiny Post does not offer any photo filters, and you can't change the font or font size, nor can you reposition the text outside of a creative use of the space bar.

Sharing options include Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and e-mail. The app also has a grayed-out Pinterest button, but such functionality is coming soon (Tiny Post awaits access to Pinterest's API). Instagram integration is also listed as coming soon on Tiny Post's page in the App Store, but you can save a Tiny Post photo to your Camera Roll and grab it from there on Instagram, dazzling your Instagram followers at the present with your pithy text-on-photo posts.
