SimplyMPress is a free text-based design tool that provides amateur designers the opportunity to create typographic layouts on their iOS devices. The app is rich in features, and while it's possible to question how many people are going to use their iOS device for this type of design, SimplyMPress provides enough tools that anyone who chooses to do so will have what they need at their disposal.

SimplyMPress doesn't come with tutorials, but does provide several tools for creating text-based designs. There are backgrounds for texture, text with dozens of fonts, colors, and layout options, text flipping and opacity tools, and several other options for text designers. SimplyMPress has many different tools with nearly all of them available for free (although some fonts and features require a paid upgrade). Using these tools is a breeze, although the app is often a bit clunky with too much on the screen at any given time. The interface works but suffers mostly from a lack of screen space -- an unavoidable problem on a four-inch phone screen.

While it's hard to see many non-designers using this application simply because creating an attractive design takes a great deal of work and talent, the app has enough features that it should be useful for designers that enjoy creating text images. SimplyMPress is an effective, well-designed, and feature-rich tool that, while not perfect, is worth checking out.
