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.

1. Select your iOS device from the Devices section of iTunes.
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.

❤️Great App❤️

I love this app. It's really versatile and has a lot of different fonts to choose from (and is FREE). You can even edit spacing between lines as well as kerning. You can create your own colors (including transparent), make the text whatever size you want, tilt it in any direction, add & edit shadows (including shadow color), add background color to the text box and even set the transparency. I use it for so many things, and I have never had a problem with it!! I can't say that about very many apps!

The only thing I wish they would add is the ability to save a project so we can go back and edit it - especially for projects with a lot of text (an example is a project I did with around 75 names I added to the picture). However, that's merely a suggestion for an upgrade & not a reason to give it fewer than 5 stars.

Nice work!! 👊🏼👊🏼👊🏼

The Best Little App, can't believe it's free!

This app is so sophisticated and versatile I can't believe Adobe didn't snatch it up and sell it for big bucks! I'm a professional designer so I'm spoiled for software and Phonto is one of the best for creating online ads and memes with easy to use typography effects and the many great fonts it has included. You can import pngs and jpegs into a photo you are already working on, which is great for adding logos, etc. I love this app!

***BUT***Lately, however, its use of png files are flaky. And suddenly Phonto does not seem to working with png files, especially if part of the image is shaded. They show up in a white box instead of the background being transparent.I hope they fix this soon. This is my favorite app but I need my pings and silhouettes to work.


This is honestly the greatest and simplest app for design on the planet. I use it specifically for graphics on my Chicago Cubs fan page, but my experience in design has been completely transformed with this app. It would be awesome if you added some photoshop kind of stuff - like being able to cut someone's body out of a photo and putting it on another (like a green screen effect type thing). It would also be amazing if you could literally just take this app and make it a desktop app. That would be awesome. Thank you so much for making this app! It has been life changing.
