Customer Reviews

There IS saving

Unlike the other reviewer which didn't look at the whole app, its help, or the online website or videos, the app *does* allow all designs to be saved and retrieved from a built-in Portfolio.
Reviewing the app to say there is no saving is misinformed, misleading and downright incorrect. They obviously didn't even bother to contact support to ask why it wouldn't exist.

Amusing and convenient but not a serious tool -- NO SAVE

This is a clever little app. However, the interface is clumsy -- and most unforgivably, there is no save. Only export. That makes it pretty useless for any design you might want to revise or return to. Look at the intricate examples: would you want to do all that, and not be able to save your work? Either you're finished and it's done, or you're throwing it away.


This app is so difficult to use. Absolute misery business. I downloaded it because I was under the impression that it came with the letterpress fonts to use outside of the app. Laaaame.
