App of the Week – Legend

Published on January 18, 2018

Ready to transform yourself from a texting amateur to a certifiable legend? There’s an app for that!

For anyone who’s ever wanted to gussy up plain text for Instagram, WhatsApp, Facebook, or even just your intra-office SMS thread or Slack channel, the Legend app is a great place to start.

The app allows users to easily add style and animation to any message imaginable. Just write your text, select an animation style, and the app will do the rest, turning your blah copy into a short, sweet, visually stunning multimedia piece. Even better, you can personalize your new animations with custom photos or your favorite emoji.

Once you’re satisfied with the look and feel of your new message, you can save it as a GIF or MP4 video, perfect for distribution anywhere and everywhere you post regularly, including Messenger, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

Think of the possibilities! Have a teammate who just closed on a sale for your business? Send them a bright, poppy congratulations worthy of that huge accomplishment! Want to stand out on your old friend’s Facebook wall as it gets crowded with “happy birthday” messages? Send them a customized animation sure to impress.

Ready to start making your daily correspondences into the stuff of Legend? The app is free to download for iOS and Android devices; it comes with a pre-set number of animation styles included, and you can purchase more in-app.

Have any other nifty animation apps you think our team should try? Want to show us the next generation in messaging? We’d love to hear from you! Drop us a line on Facebook or Twitter to keep the geek speak going!
