I'd Cap That




Offensive photo-captioning app isn't for teens.

What parents need to know

Ease of play

Very easy to use. Users just take a photo and a caption appears, or they can choose a photo from the device's camera roll or from Facebook.


A few of the captions make light of violence, in particular, sexual violence. One example: "I'm here for the gangbang."


The app is full of sexual content, crude humor, and suggestive themes that pop up as captions on the photos users take via the mobile device or access on Facebook. Captions are randomly generated unless users purchase the upgrade for more options. Many captions include sexually derogatory statements about women. Caption examples with sexual content: "I want to be inside of you," another "You know what they say about sluts."


Captions include nearly every swear word and profane phrase: "I'm a muthaf-- monster," "You're an a--hole."


To get full access to all the app's features users have to purchase a $.99 upgrade.

Drinking, drugs, & smoking

Captions include references to drinking, drugs, and alcohol. One example of an alcohol-related caption: "Point me to the nearest alcohol."

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that I'd Cap That is not for teens. This app contains sexual content, crude humor, and suggestive themes, all of which appear in captions users add to photos. Users have the ability to choose only from randomly generated captions unless they purchase the upgrade for more options. One caption example: "You know what they say about sluts." Some of the more inflammatory captions could potentially get users into trouble for placing inappropriate (some may even be harassing) messages on other people's photos and then posting them on social networking sites or emailing them directly from the app.

What's it about?

I'D CAP THAT lets users upload photos from their device's camera roll or take a photo using an in-app camera and then place a (randomly generated) caption on the photo. The captions range from vulgar, silly, and stupid to phrases that suggest alcohol use or even sexual harassment. Photos can also be shaded different tones. More options are provided with a purchased upgrade. Users can save captioned photos, post them on social networking sites, or email them.

Is it any good?


 I'd Cap That isn't any good. In fact, it could be quite harmful for everyone involved -- both the user of the app and those pictured in the photos.
