Title: Quipio
Platform: iOS - version 5 or later
Cost: Free

Quipio makes it easy to add text to images for memes or just fun. Watch the video to learn how it works.

The app is a great way for teens to join in in a meme community, or to have fun sending visual messages to friends and family. Teachers might use Quipio as a way to have teens illustrate understanding of an image through the text and style that they add to a picture. Library staff working with teens could certainly sponsor virtual and face-to-face programs that include a Quipio component. What if teens took images at library events and "quipped" them? There are a lot of possibilities.
