“Big Words” is a very simple iPhone app idea: Use your mobile device to display Twitter-style messages to other people, in the real world. Fittingly, one of its creators is a Twitter co-founder.

Summary of the app:

  • Display a text on your mobile device, in as large a font as possible.
  • Prepare multiple pages, swipe between them.
  • Universal app: works on both iPhone and iPad.
Use cases:
  • Pass messages in situations where you cannot talk.
  • In presentations: “You have 5mins left”.
  • Put a comment into a picture (obviously, the iPhone you display the message on cannot be the device you take the picture with).
