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


Not a regular reviewer, but i had to find the review button for this app to review it. I'm an apparel make (So African Clothing) and needs to do design mock-ups for graphic artists. This app is so awesome I don't know if I could live without it. Sometimes i think it's unreal. I started off using it for memes, but then transitioned to design tshirts and stuff and my whole world has changed. Oh my gawd. If you're reading this review to help you decide whether to get this app or not, don't even read the next word. Stop reading now and download this app ASAP. One thing i wish they had is a duplication option. Sometimes i type stuff or add an image from their library and i want to use it multiple times, but i have to keep going back and forth 5 times etc. i know i know, I'm lazy. America has made me a lazy African. Anyhow this app is just filled with Awesome juice. I go by Harry B and I'm out.

Found a glitch

Really, the only reason I gave it three instead of five stars is because I found a small glitch in this app. It's not major, but it has been nagging me. If you add an image (preexisting photo) to whatever photo you're working with, the app does not recognize any editing you've precisely done to that image. For example: I have a photo uploaded in phonto. I want to add an image to that photo. The image is also a photo in my camera roll. I cropped this image and when it's cropped in photos, it is automatically saved that way; however, phonto only recognizes the original photo and not the cropped version already saved in my camera roll.. I mean, c'mon.. really?

So Original and Easy to Use

I honestly love this app so much. Adding text to photos is so easy and fast. I love all of the options you have, like blending colors in different ways, curving, and importing fonts. My favorite part is the color blending. It makes the text so more original and pretty to look at. It's so good for watermarks since there is simple and easy to apply transitions. Importing fonts is as easy as ever. Just download the font, and press open in Phonto, then install! I love this app and I would say it's one of if not the best text editing app out there!
