Columbus, Ohio – Available today, ‘Poetreat – Quick and simple bites of poetry’ is available to download for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The app is a poetry text editor and rhyme assistant for English users of all ages. Users are greeted with the editor to immediately begin writing their first poem. As the user types, syllable counters appear to identify how many syllables there are per line. After the first line has been written, the app finds a list of rhyming words to help complete the next line of the poem.

The app features two side navigation panels. The left panel instructs the user on how to change the rhyming scheme of the current poem by using touch, hold, and drag gestures to rearrange the blocks. The right navigation panel shows the user’s saved and synced poems. Each poem can be shared using the native iOS 6 Facebook and Twitter share sheets. Saving multiple poems is unlockable with a $.99 In-App Purchase. This In-App Purchase also gives the user access to change the theme from light to dark. More unlockable features are in the works.
