by Phil Hornshaw

Users looking to share some unique images will want to check out Flip Flop, our first app worth downloading today. It lets you add text to images and then flip that text horizontally or vertically, and you can flip the images, too – creating backwards, interesting visuals to share across social networks. We’ve also got Grepolis, a massively multiplayer strategy title that’s all about battling other players with armies you raise and cities you construct. Finally comes Star Wars: Force Collection, a collectible card game that requires players to build formidable decks to take on opponents.

What’s cool? There are several apps that let you add text to photos and share them across social networks in the iTunes App Store, but Flip Flop takes a unique position on how those text and photos should look. It literally allows you to flip text and photos horizontally, making them backwards (or mirror images), or vertically, inverting them. It’s a nifty little gimmick, and you can then share those images on Facebook or Twitter. Just be advised that you’ll need to pony up $0.99 in order to get full functionality, which includes access to photo-flipping.
