Adobe Post for iPhone pretties up your pontifications

Adobe sees a few types of users for Post: individuals who want to post prettified pithy pontifications to social media or want attractive ways to blast out "we're having a party!" with a link, and more business-oriented folks who want easy-to-generate social-media-friendly marketing graphics.

Post is pretty well-designed and easy to use. It's based on the concept of what Adobe refers to as "remixing," though really that's just slapping a hip term on the themes or templates that you use as starting points for your graphics, dubbed "Posts." Terminology aside, though, Adobe used studies of the most popular Pinterest repins to choose the characteristics of its 42 initial designs, and they're attractive in a generic stock-photography way. Adobe plans to update the designs and content on a regular basis.

Each theme consists of a photo and text, to which the app applies filters, typefaces and type treatments. You can choose your own image from any of multiple sources, including a search of nice public-domain photos. The app automatically crops it to a 1:1 aspect ratio, and you can pan and rotate to choose the visible area.
