Motivate (or demotivate) your friends and family using YouDemotivate

Create funny or cute motivational images with this easy-to-use app.

It's unlikely you've spent much time online in the age of Facebook and Twitter memes without seeing at least one motivational or "demotivational" poster. You know the type -- an image framed in black, usually with a single word beneath the image and perhaps a caption that explains it. It might be a fireman coming out of a burning building with the title "Courage" or, if snarky, a cat standing up to a dog at dinnertime. These are fun, and a chance to be incredibly creative, so if you're interested in making your own, YouDemotivate is a great app.

This free app has a very basic set of features. Turn the app on and either enter the URL of an image or load one from your phone's library. You can then add a title to the image and a caption. Tap the save button and it will be exported as an image in the style of the famous motivational (or demotivational) posters. While the app name insinuates jokes will be told, they don't have to be. You can just as easily use the app to create powerful messages or highlight amazing events you've been through, posting them to your social-media accounts to share. Or you can save them for yourself as reminders of things you want to do in your life.

Functionality beyond creating the basic images is limited, but YouDemotivate works well, and exports and shares rapidly. If you are eager to start creating your own motivational poster-style images, YouDemotivate is a simple, free, and easy-to-use app that will do just that.
