iFake Text

iFake Text is a site I found out about from Ozge Karaoglu's Blog.  iFake Text allows you to create screenshots of a fake iPhone text message.  Here is one I created:

I typed:

And then it created this:

In Ozge Karaoglu's Blog post about iFake Text, she gives some great ideas on how to use this with your students.  

Children can make two characters from a book to text each other.
Two famous people can text each other.
Children can create short poetry using this tool.
We can provide some part of the text and ask children to write their guesses of the other person’s answers.
Children can practice a dialogue, or questions and answers.
We can provide children the conversation and ask what has happened before and after.
We can use this tool to explain the meaning of a vocabulary.
It can also be a good idea to use this tool to practice advices or suggestions.

I recommend giving iFake Text a try.

A very cool and nifty app you have in here! Kinda funny though, I actually thought of so many uses from just reading your content, LOL! From trolling friends, saying fake I Love you for a "forever alone dude", or by educational means this app will come in handy. Thank you for this post, it piqued my interest, a break I need from work ;)
