Useful and Easy to Use for Beginners!

Phonto has never let me down. When I first got the app it was literally so easy to use. I love how uncomplicated it is if you just edit your photo and add many filters to it, fonts/letters, images, and other things to a photo! Very easy and in my opinion I think it would be worth upgrading to unlock many features! Excellent app and very unique too! This is one of my personal favorite apps I use ALWAYS when I made sort of graphic design edits. Love the way it operates and how the app doesn't have glitches or any bugs on there. It won't crash ever! One thing I do want to say though is that usually it bugs me when I write something and press the "Done" button on the top right corner and sometimes I accidentally click the screen and the font I wrote is so small that I usually struggle to press and to increase the size. I would like it if when this happens, the text is already big and not small. Really amazing app though, a lot of hard work from this app is paid off. Worth getting it free & upgrading it. Thank you Phonto!

Like the new features

This is one of my absolute favorite apps that I use all the time. I was really excited about the new 3D feature. I was slightly disappointed that it basically just lets you change the proportions, which kind of creates a 3D effect, but the words themselves are still flat with no depth. Still, it's pretty cool.

I actually was able to create The illusion of depth by going to the shadows option, and picking the solid shadow that has no blur. It only works if you have either the X or Y axis set to 0, and dont have the shadow too far from the letters. Otherwise, you see the space that makes it obvious it's a shadow & not part of the letters. I then changed the shadow color to a darker version of the text color, and it comes out really good.

Heads up - when you first try to use the 3D feature, it tells you you have to purchase it, but when you actually go to the store to do that, the price is free for a limited time, and it won't charge you.

There were a couple minor bugs, but no big deal.

There are 2 features I really wish the app had. 1) the option to save as a transparent .png - if you import a transparent image, it changes it to solid white when you export it. 2) the option to customize the size to whatever you want. But overall, I absolutely love this app. 😊

Best, most reliable app.

I had stopped using this app because of the limited number of cool fonts. I came back to it today because I wanted to simply add text to my pic and move on. I'm happy to see more fonts...and...I can't believe we can download our own fonts and use them in the app!! What a dream come true. This will truly be my favorite app since now I can use my own fonts! This was the first text app I ever bought and it had stolen my heart once again!
◽️UPDATE 1/1/15◽️
This is still The Best app ever. It is my go-to app for adding text to pics and even for adding filters to pics. I use my own fonts and there is no crashing, or weird stuff with this app ever! Buy it! It's such a steal. It is the best app on my iPhone.
