Customer Reviews

Indispensable app for creatives, artists, musicians

I use Phonto on an almost daily basis. For several different projects, it's great for a musician, artist or event planner of any sort who needs to put together images with text, quickly, with very powerful tools and with beautiful results. Poster making, memes etc. Brilliantly. And...on your phone or tablet. Excellent for an on the fly idea. I have a number of images that were meant to just be mock-ups, place holders...that ended up as final, finished pieces. Get this app!!

Great app, but the quality of the images after using?

I love phonto, works wonderful, but if I make a collage in another app and its size is 1200x1200 (for example), when I bring it into phonto, add text, and save it, the size changes. It no longer is 1200x1200 but a smaller size and the high quality of the image no longer exists. It's very annoying because phonto lets you add your own fonts, and other apps don't let you do that.

What I Needed

I needed a simple app that allowed me to add text to photographs, and this is working perfectly! I have no idea if the app has any frills, haven't looked into that. But the intuitive control of finding your desired pics and then the ease with which you can add as much text as you like is wonderful. Especially changing the size of the text. I'm very pleased with this app!!
