A couple of Swedish developers have released an iPhone/iPod/iPad app called WordFoto, which takes any image as input and spits out that image, but composed of words. Having dabbled with such an algorithm myself, I'm very impressed with the fact that theirs works essentially instantaneously. People are starting to add it to their personal toolkit of image-creation techniques. Go play with it.

* Full disclosure: they gave me a free copy of of their $1.99 app. I believe that this blog post is worth somewhat less than that, so I probably still owe them some cheese and crackers, or maybe a bag of taffy or something.

WordFoto is lots of fun, but nothing compares to Wordle! Thanks for a useful and fun application.
