The Good Over lets you add great-looking typography to your photos to create unique-looking projects you can share across most popular social networks.

The Bad The interface can get a little confusing, with convoluted processes for seemingly easy actions. Switching orientation makes you lose your formatting.

The Bottom Line If you want to add good-looking text to your photos, Over is a great tool for the job. The interface is confusing initially, but once you get the hang of it, the ability to add typography to your photos is worth the work.

Over for iOS lets you jazz up your Instagram photos with beautifully rendered typography to make them more than just photos with filters.

This is not a complete photo-editing app. Instead, with Over, you're adding great-looking fonts to your images to tell more of the story, make a meme, or simply to add a label. You start by picking an image from your iPhone photo library. A wheel-like interface on the right gets you to the apps main functions where you can choose your fonts, edit what you have on screen, save to your camera roll, or share to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, or via e-mail. You also have the option to turn your work into a postcard and send it via snail mail for a fee.
