Make Your Photos Better By Writing Funny Crap on Them!

You know the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words”? Well whoever said that obviously wasn’t clever enough to think about making pictures WITH words. I know, that’s some earth shattering shit, right? I imagine Old Man Thousand-Words being like “Wa-wa-wait…you can combine the two? Why the hell are people still quoting me on that?” MiSigns combines those motherfuckers – words AND pictures – making that quote even more ridiculous.

MiSigns is “A mobile app for a positive and visual way of communicating without speaking,” which is just another way of saying, “We let you put words on your damn photos.”

And honestly, it’s pretty dope. Take a look at some of the stuff I made:

I’m able to take a photo from the library on my phone, say funny stuff on it and then share it with the world via social media. It’s one thing to post a photo of yummy bread in order to boast to your glutard friends about your superstar skills of digesting gluten, but it’s another to rub their noses in it excitedly with words. Plus, MiSigns makes it super easy for me to convince everyone I’m far funnier than I actually am.

What photos have you taken that are lacking that certain je ne sais quoi? What weird shit can you think of to take a perfectly normal photo and make it a perfectly unnerving photo? This is better than writing on your friend who passed out at the party with his shoes on…ok, almost better.

Download MiSigns for free right now! And I highly recommend paying the measly $0.99 to unlock all the features so you can use this bad boy to it’s fullest capabilities. Where else can you get that kind of value for 99 cents these days?
