Phonto supports only English (US), Chinese and Japanese, so when the priority of Chinese (or Japanese) in your setting was higher than English, Phonto would be launched as Chinese (or Japanese) mode.

To solve this problem…
1. Open the Settings app.
2. Choose 'English' in 'General' > 'Language & Region' > 'iPhone Language'.
3. Turn back your 'iPhone Language' to your favorite language.

Using iTunes, you can copy font files between your computer and Phonto on your iOS device.

2. Click the Apps tab and scroll down to the bottom of the page.
3. Select "Phonto" in the "File Sharing" section.
4. Drag and drop .ttf or .otf font files into "Documents".
5. Restart Phonto.

The best editing app I’ve discovered


I’ve tried many photo and text editing apps and none as are as simple, yet powerfully effective as Phonto.
I can now (easily) make weekly fliers advertising my business to use on social media, adding relevant photos and text each time in minutes.
I can save even more time by saving preset text which I use often.
This app does everything I need it to and more

Really good 👍


This app is really good for editing/editing photos. I would definitely recommend it as it is so easy to use and so fun and brill . It is also free with some in app purchases but u don’t need them to make a stunning edit!!! There are some ads but u barely come across them and they are really short. Phonto has never frozen of glitches which is great. Definitely worth a try

AMAZING although


It's an amazing app and it's got great features! I'd personally recommend it for beginners especially people looking for making thumbnails. It's a amazing app apart from the fact that it has no option to layer images. I personally don't use it very often apart from the times I'm in a hurry and can not use adobe photoshop I use this.
