Phoster Offers a New Option for eBook Covers

A new iOS app has popped up in the past few days which promises to improve all the less than stellar covers on self-published eBooks.

Phoster was originally released as a poster making app last October, but Piotr of Password Incorrect has noticed that it can also make a pretty darnĀ  fine cover.

The app sells for $2 in ITunes, and it does most of the work for you., thanks to theĀ  folks from Bucket Labs. It comes with 72 professionally designed templates, all of which are top-level designs. It will also let you import a background for the cover, export the finished cover (via facebook, flickr, twitter, tumblr, instagram and email), and it has a vast number of formatting and layout options.

Piotr wrote a thorough step-by-step guide over on his blog. It’s worth reading before you get the app.
