I am not sure how Nabbed chose its app name, but perhaps it is because the letters look like a ransom note when they are used to make words to add to your photos. With Nabbed, you can use a picture currently in your iPhone library, or take a new one. You can rearrange the words once you have typed them so you can choose their placement aesthetically.
Nabbed is cool to use as is, but it needs some tweaking. Nabbed cannot view photos in landscape (horizontal) position. When you save an altered photo with Nabbed, the image is saved in portrait (vertical) format, which leaves awkward white borders on all pictures that were originally landscape-style.
I would also appreciate it if Nabbed included the ability to re-size letters and angle words. You can shake the phone to get different styles of letters, but you cannot individually change the letter sizes. To make a word appear to be at an angle, you have to type the individual letters with spaces between them as if each letter was a word, and then line up the letters on an angle.
Another critical missing feature from Nabbed is punctuation marks and numbers. If More Blu Sky took the time to cut out 260 letters from magazines, why stop there? Grab those scissors! Without question marks, exclamation points and numbers, it feels like Nabbed was released prematurely.
Used creatively, Nabbed can be an art form unto itself. The concept behind Nabbed is good. With an update that includes the suggestions above, Nabbed will be great.
