Favorite app for adding text to photos

Have been using Phonto for a few years now, and it is my favorite of many similar apps. I use it for work and play. I appreciate being able to save preset texts that I use regularly, and the variety of fonts. I like being able to tinker with the text size, placement, the options to add shadows and backgrounds, the ability to rotate the text, and to make it practically invisible so I can add digital watermarks to photos. I may end up springing for an ad free version if it exists. Recently updated it and suddenly there are ads where I don't remember them before. I love this app and recommend it to all.

10/10 would recommend

Great app! I've been using it for a few months now, and it has never failed to enlighten me.
One thing that needs to be fixed though, is the glitch that is happening that makes the app lag. I try to adjust the stroke, and then suddenly the app takes about 30 seconds to change the stroke rather than a few milliseconds. And then after that, all the other features start lagging as well. Please fix! Other than that, it's a wonderful app, probably the best text-editing app that I've used.

5 star app but it keeps freezing

Look I've had this app for about 3-4 months, and I know how to use it! But today it's been acting up! I would try to change my specific word to a different font, size, or color and it freezes! I have restarted my phone to see if it'll work and I have refreshed the app! But other than that this app is definitely awesome for adding text to pictures!
