Send colorful text messages from your iPhone with this app

Technology News Blog

Sure, iPhone whales are fun to make, but what happens when you (inevitably) get tired of them? If you don't decide to completely abandon the practice of texting in favor of contacting your friends exclusively via Facebook, then consider this app for your next texting trick. Color Text Messages+ puts in your hand the power to send colorful text messages — even extremely gaudy ones that look like they came right out of the 1990s.

So how does this wondrous app work? Upon launching it, you'll see an interface where you can customize a message balloon completely. Choose from dozens of background patterns or colors, text font colors, and even the font itself. Once you're done customizing a message bubble, you still have to paste it into the Message app.

In the Message app, press on the text box long enough for the Paste command to appear so you can send your colorful, hopefully easy-on-the-eyes text. Don't worry — your friends will see your festive message even if they don't have the app installed.

The best part is that this app is completely free, so you don't have to spend a cent if you just want to tease your Comics Sans-hating friend. Have fun!
