Best New Apps: Ultratext
See the original posting on The Verge
Ultratext is a dead-simple iOS app for creating GIFs and sending them via MMS and iMessage. It creates flashing neon messages, with the words you type blown up in all caps, accessorized with emoji and selfies and other photos from your camera roll. Every time you hit the space bar, Ultratext gives you a new box to type into, chaining your words into a looping animation. At any point you can add a picture using either the front or rear camera. The result is a message that looks more like a billboard than a message bubble, and its incredibly fun. “Its like you literally discovered fire and gave it to me,” one friend told me, after I tweeted a link to the app.
