Blurtt Launches on iOS Devices
Blurtt, a new iPhone app, is a communications tool that people can use to help better express themselves through a combination of images and text. Here’s how it works: in the app a user searches the net for the right image, then adds their own text to it, edits and crops it, and finally shares it via Twitter, Facebook, email, or text. The result is a “blurtt” like the one attached.
The creators’ goal for Blurtt is to help people say more with less in today’s digital life of emoticon-filled emails and tone-less texts. I think its a really cool app that could gain some real traction! The press release appears below:
Blurtt, an iOS app allowing people to quickly and easily add images to their messages, has today launched in the App Store. Blurtt is a simple and unique communication tool that helps users create more meaningful and memorable messages. From one simple app and in less than one minute, users can now search the web for an image, add text, and share with friends through text, email, Twitter and Facebook.
“The goal of Blurtt is to help people express themselves better in today’s digital world,” said Jeanette Cajide, founder of Blurtt. “Instead of toneless texts or emoticon-filled status updates, Blurtt lets users combine images and text through a very simple and quick process to create memorable content that communicates experiences, moods, and thoughts.”
Users can create and share a blurtt with just a few easy steps. First, a user either searches the web for an image or chooses an image from their camera roll. Next, 100 characters or less of text is added to the image. Finally, a user can quickly edit the placement, size, and font of the text before sharing the blurtt via their social networks, email or text. Other features include the ability to send anonymous blurtts, the ability to modify other people’s blurtts to create unique expressions and a preview gallery of other blurtts that have been created.
Blurtt is much more than a status updating, photo sharing, or meme generating tool. Blurtt is a new way to communicate that will help users break through the digital clutter to get their point across more clearly with a powerful image.
Cajide said, “Blurtt cuts straight to the point about what we are really trying to say. We live in a visual society yet are expected to mostly communicate in a digital world. How we relate to one another comes down to the words we choose. Our goal is to make it easy to relay tone and meaning by adding imagery to the words we use.”
