An app for adding text to photos?

Hey, I'm trying to find an app that allows you to add text to
pictures. Something that allows you to move the font anywhere on the picture and has a wide variety of font sizes, styles, and colors. I've already tried Wallpaper! and it worked alright for awhile, but it has gone downhill.

I already have PhotoGene, it only has like 5 fonts and you have to
use a bubble caption. Ransom letters is cool, but of course it is limited to magazine cut out styled letters.

Damn I didn't know it had a transparent option. I thought it was a shade of gray. Anyway, it still only has 5 or so fonts.

Aviary makes a great photo editor that has text and fonts to add to your pics.
