Featured App: Whims

Whims is a social media app similar to Instagram, except instead of photos, you create text.

Whims Detail

You start off by signing up and making a profile. Then you pick a style sheet, they give you so many to choose from. A style sheet has a theme based on people, such as Harry Potter style. There are two types of font in that style and three color options. You can choose which specific words you want to change to the second font choice, if at all. Other options are, alignment, text size and text spacing.

Afterwards when you click “create” there is another option called “add texture”, this will give your background a different look. You can choose from no filter, crumpled, rust, stationary, vintage, water spill, and notes. These can be layered all together and the more you click, the more intense the texture becomes.

Once you have perfected your design, you can add a comment or tags and share on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, text message, and email. This will post to the Whims page, but there is an option to save as a “Private Whim” which will only save the image to your phone.

I love this app because it has so many beautiful styles for free, unlike other apps that make you pay for packages and different fonts.

    I just discovered the whims app- ( late to the ball game again), but I love it and enjoy expressing myself through words. I followed my kids from FaceBook to instsgram to Whims ( gotta stalk my teens just to make sure they don’t have any real stalkers & that they are not doing anything inappropriate on-line). I’m not artistically or techno gifted so this app encourages and helps my creative side . It’s a nice creative release outlet and I’ve read many other encouraging, uplifting and thought provoking whims designed by users of the app. I love it
