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.

Customer Reviews

The GREATEST in it's category!

I've used Phonto for years now and it is the BEST app I've ever used!
I use it for everything from creating my business ads, to logos, to adding a sticker and text to my family pictures for social media, to the occasional meme.
It is extremely user friendly, but without compromising features.
It comes with a wide variety of versatile fonts, which you can add your own to. The color schemes and text effects are also many and customizable. The preset image sizes are usefully labeled and purposed (for example, Facebook Cover size, etc).
I've used most apps out there in similar categories, but Phonto is BY FAR the best there is! It's free, promises to do what it does (AND MORE), doesn't need you to purchase every single feature you need, and ads don't interrupt your creativity! It leaves little to be desired!

So Great We're Terrified They'll Wreck It

Haven't downloaded the latest version. Too concerned that something will be missing from 4.7.3, which is working & performing perfectly — PERFECTLY! What an amazing tool Phonto is. It has changed everything about the way we do business. And as an artistic tool, Phonto allows the imagination to run free. The _one_ annoying thing is the proximity of the "remove" button: right next to the "move" button. Too often, we've gone to significant trouble getting an add-on image (not the main image) just right, only to inadvertently touch "remove" — losing the add-on completely and irretrievably. But this is a minor nuisance against the overall wonderfulness of Phonto.


I've tried several watermark and editorial apps and for watermarking, this is by far the best. The options are easy and plentiful, without being cheesy, and the app doesn't force you to show THEIR logo in the corner of the picture. This bit of generosity alone was enough to inspire me to write my first ever app review.

When you're editing your pictures for social media and going to the trouble of watermarking your work, the last thing you want is for the app you use to shoehorn itself onto all of your pictures...OR force you to pay for the privilege of removing their logo. It's the worst, and I've deleted many apps because of it. I finally asked another Instagram artist whose work I appreciate what app she uses and she said Phonto! That was enough for me! I downloaded immediately and have watermarking up a storm.

I will say that, although it may be just a learning curve, I would appreciate better picture editing functionality. That way, I could do everything in one app. As it stands, I edit my pictures in another app and as a final step, bring the picture into Phonto for watermarking.

Still, I'm very happy. Thank you!!!
