Review: Add practical touches to your pics with PhotoCap

Add timestamps and custom captions to your pictures.

There are a ton of photo editing apps out there to add all kinds of crazy effects to your iPhone's pictures, but this is the first that we've come across that actually lets you add more practical touches. PhotoCap is a unique app in that it lets users add a timestamp and caption to their phone pics. It's super-easy to use and effective, and for that we recommend it.

PhotoCap doesn't waste time: It opens with the camera ready to go. The timestamp appears in the right corner of the screen, waiting for you to snap the picture. But before you do, you'll need to add a caption first, which involves tapping the caption bar at the bottom of the screen, typing your caption, and then positioning the caption by dragging and dropping it. All that was left for us to do was snap our picture. The app gave us the option of retaking the picture if we weren't happy, saving it, e-mailing it, or texting it as an MMS. Our only complaint with PhotoCap is that we wish it gave us the option to remove the timestamp rather than adding it by default. That way, we could use the app simply as a caption tool if we wanted.

That's really all there is to PhotoCap and, really, that's fine by us. You won't find a Help file of any kind, but it's so easy to navigate that you shouldn't need one. We highly recommend this app for all users.
