Phoster App

If you are a tech-savvy DIY musician that still believes in gig posters and flyers, then you need this iOS app ASAP!
Phoster ($1.99 from the iTunes app store) provides an intuitive, easy-to-use approach to poster creation that takes care of most of the design work for you.

Phoster provides 72 free templates to work with, and from there you can import your own photos from your photo library, or take a picture with your device’s camera. Tap on the imported photo to open a box that allows you to adjust the contrast, brightness, and saturation. You can also collapse, expand, and move it around with hand gestures.

From there, adjusting and changing the text is just as simple. Tap on the dummy text to type in whatever you want, as well as to choose colors, font, and size. Tap and hold a line of text to move it around within the frame. There are some basic limitations to how much you can do to the text, but if you start with a template that you like, this shouldn’t be a problem.

When you’re done with your basic design, you can choose from 19 different kinds of “paper” you want it printed on. After that, there’s a simple interface that lets you share it on popular photo sites, social networks, email it, or send the design to your wi-fi printer.
