TypeSaver for iPad: When Typography Meets Famous Words

We've been talking a lot about the iPad as a digital frame for your photos, music, news and tweets. It could be a frame for anything, if you want. What about words? Yeah, like those cool slideshows of words from popular people that say shit about life. Got the idea?

Now, think about an iPad app that mixes words, great typography and Sh*t My Dad Says together with Obama and you get the hang of this awesome thing called TypeSaver.

Yeah, that's pretty much what TypeSaver does, and does it for free in the App Store. You have 4 different sources, great fonts from the League of Movable Type and, possibly, an iPad stand in front of you. Just take a look at the screenshots below, then go download the app and don't tell me I didn't warn you about the "iPad as a frame" thing.
