PERFECT APP NO MONEY FOR ANY FONTS!
by Norah Flintoft on 2020/10/30 12:18
This app is so perfect! IT IS SOOO GOOD! It has helped me so much make my YouTube videos, and more! You can choose any font you want for free on any photo you have! Then all you have to do is click one button to save to photos, send to people, and more! It’s so unbelievably awesome!! Thanks,Phonto!
Phonto Phun
by BFJ King on 2020/10/30 04:26
I am enjoying the simplicity of working in Phonto. What phon l am having. I like being able to resize shapes and letters. Being able to choose different fonts is fantastic! I am still exploring all the different things that l can do!
Was better before iOS 14.0 update
by FixItPhonto on 2020/10/30 04:01
Adding an image (Logo) PNG file, now creates a WHITE background behind the images. PLEASE update & change it back, so that we can blend into our images better.
The perfect tool for an IG writing account
by BMXdork on 2020/10/29 22:31
I use Phonto exclusively for my Instagram writing account. I use it for my cover slides, and use a black background with the charter roman font in white for my actual pieces. I can format a ten slide post in about five minutes on Phonto. And I get compliments on my layout all the time. The free version was decent, but the couple bucks you pay for no ads is worth it’s weight in gold, and all the other features are super cheap and most definitely worth the one or two dollar price. Stellar app
Excelente app Fotográfica
by Vikcora on 2020/10/29 20:43
Uso esta aplicación de manera continua y es muy sencilla de usar, borra el fondo de las imágenes y las deja con fondo transparente, lo cual ayuda en diseños propios, pulgar arriba 👍👌 No dudes en descargarla 😁
Great
by Mrs.Bibie on 2020/10/29 01:17
This app is very user friendly and was great during my daughter’s wedding preparations. I loved it, it came in very handy.
Amazing app

I don’t know if any of you guys tried the app but it’s amazing!!yall can try it if you want!i really love this!!JUST WOW,
best app, some suggestions tho
by Puppy Fuz on 2020/10/26 19:31
i would like if you could share projects from device to device and if there was an "install all fonts" button when installing fonts via zip also allow us to add more colors when changing the color pallets, sometimes 5 isn’t enough
Love the app just wish...
by lennbunny on 2020/10/26 16:28
... there was a word wrap option or at least a way to adjust text the way you can on an instagram story. it’s very frustrating how text runs off the page and i have to keep manually breaking the lines. More shapes / items would be lovely... Such as plain lines etc... other than that, my go to photo text editing app.
fantastic app
by Jonnn Moxley on 2020/10/26 14:10
i use it for all of my edits. the only text to picture app i fully trust.
App not working
by Sneaker Queen on 2020/10/26 00:55
When I pick a photo to edit, it will not let me select some photos. I don’t know what happened and the app is current on update It was working fine a couple weeks ago. Now I guess I’m going to use a different app, mind you I’ve been using this for urs with no issues.
app is great, so many ads.

Won’t Open
by ashlii_smith on 2020/10/20 19:50
I was loving Phonto until I downloaded ios 14 and now the app won’t even open. It just pops up and exits. I wish it was working!
Update Needed ASAP
by HouseFullOfKidz on 2020/10/20 15:35
Can we PLEASE get an update for iOS 14!! Half of my installed fonts disappeared from Phonto after the update. I use this app daily and now I’m having to use several different others just to make up for this one not working properly. All the fonts are installed on my phone as the font profiles are still showing in my settings. However, more than half are now missing in Phonto.
Very good

by dont want to use one on 2020/10/20 01:45
Why do you say your app is free when it’s not. You have to pay just erase anything. You have to pay to make changes. Just say up front you can download for free but you will have to pay to use it correctly.
Beat app to edit a photo Download it
by PutYoHandown on 2020/10/19 23:45
I recommend this app because it have so many features to edit you photo with i it’s this app to edit my thumbnails for YouTube also I recommend getting the premium
Videos
by Diin0Chqrr on 2020/10/19 21:35
Okay I love this app in all, but we can’t edit videos? That’s what I’m here for, editing videos in text. I know vont exists but you can only use 4 text! Like what the actual heck, I need to edit more than one text, and it changes the filters??? Phonto can you please let me edit videos, it would be my dream!
Freezes
by UGH8888😫😡☹️ on 2020/10/19 17:31
So this app is really good for using fonts on your photos! But there’s just one thing about it that I don’t like, the freezing. Whenever I try to use my fonts on pictures it ends up freezing up. I checked and it isn’t my phone. It only happens with this app. Because of all the freezing, I have to leave the app but when I come back, all of my work is deleted. This makes me really unhappy and I want an update so that it stops freezing. After that, I will change this to a 5 star rating.
Not phontos fault
by PookieWonk on 2020/10/19 15:52
Since the iOS 13 update I can no longer download fonts to pronto and I hate that. I tried to find a way to contact the developer but can’t find one. I just wish I could sk if this can be fixed.
Been using for YEARS and it's so simple and great
by poisonivey666 on 2020/10/19 07:35
If you need to work up ads quickly and professionally this is the app for you it's super simple (a kid could use it)and the end product always looks professional. Can we talk about the list of fonts omg there is soooooo many. It doesn't matter if you're making a meme or drafting up a fancy advertisement this app is awesome and free! I've been using it for at least 3 years now prob longer without any issues or problems at all! I never write reviews but this app deserves one.
update !!
by dnsnennsne on 2020/10/19 05:48

Phonto Review 5/5
by AliceRivw on 2020/10/18 04:08
Literally The Best Editor For Text and Photo
Latest update is terrible
by tadghkiytd on 2020/10/18 02:16
I used to love this app but with this new update all of my pictures are degraded/blurry. So I hope they fix this soon.
iPhone good iPad bad
by Moses0992 on 2020/10/18 01:43
I love the app on my iPhone but I can’t get it to open photos on my iPad. Which is really unfortunate because what I use it for would be much easier to edit on iPad.
Adding PNG watermark no longer works
by mzr7758 on 2020/10/17 17:18
Now adding a PNG watermark image with clear background will just show as solid white background.
This app is the best!
by Emere 101 on 2020/10/17 15:46
I would highly recommend this app if you love editing and they have awesome text fonts and you can use awesome fonts, you can do awesome things with the fonts
Review.. listen up
by NcoleN on 2020/10/16 11:57
I have used Phonto for many years. Recommend it to many people when they ask how I make the fonts on my photos. But the political ads have been obnoxious. I have replaced this app with another app that doesn’t spam me with a political ad every time I save a photo. Updated. The app doesn’t save photos anymore. Its hit or miss. I had to stop using
Waste of money

Help!!!
by pooooooooooopz on 2020/10/14 00:12
How do I add vids into it?
Too confusing.
by NorthWynd33 on 2020/10/13 18:21
The interface is way too confusing, as I could not figure out at all how to curve the text or do much at all really past adding text and changing the color. No perspective, no curved text, I couldn’t find anything. Not what i’m looking for in an app.
Fun Fun Fun
by Darcielynn67 on 2020/10/13 16:41
It's user friendly, easy to import additional fonts. I'm using it much more than I ever thought I would. It’s my “go to” for putting words on things.
Love It
by RDHutch on 2020/10/13 11:42
This APP is great for personalizing photographs, birthday cards, etc. I use it every day.

A good useful tool.
Love this App
by Eee-yip8 on 2020/10/12 17:28
This is my go to app when I need a text app for my flyers and graphics. You import text and utilize all the texts in your system. Only issue I have is, I would love if I can change the height of the text with the width being affected and vice versa!
WOW

by Noob- on 2020/10/10 23:07
aaaAAAAAAAHHHHHHH! Yes this app is very helpful. At 1st I got ma dick stuck in a toaster but after I searched on YT how to use Phonto I was like “oh snap!” And then got the hang of it.
Will not let me in app
by NamiDii on 2020/10/10 21:10
It will not let me in the app I have downloaded and uninstalled more than 5 times please fix this bug
Download this Right Now.
by WhatsnewNoonoo on 2020/10/10 03:50
So this app is amazing... but there has been a problem that happened very recently. When I want to upload photo albums I can’t. Well it’s not that I can’t it’s just that when I go to settings ‘Phonto’ does not appear. So I can’t edit anymore or add texts to my photos. Please fix this or respond back, maybe it’s just my phone. Or maybe it’s because I uninstalled it and reinstalled it becauze I though that would work. You also cannot add photos on top of your other photos anymore OR... add items like a like button or a subscribe button. This would be my review from the past if I had not experienced this problem: OMG OMG INSTALL THIS APP RIGHT NOW OR ELSE I WILL COME TO YOUR HOUSE AND INSTALL IT FOR YOU! IT’S AMAZING! YOU CAN DO MANY THINGS LIKE ADD TEXTS WITH SO MANY COOL FONTS AND ADD PHOTOS, IF YOU DONT’T HAVE PHOTOS YOU CAN USE PLAIN IMAGES! You can do many other things like add items! I am still feeling like that but all I need is to fix these problems or solve them because I need it for my videos, you have been such a help so please fix this! Let me know if you can respond because I need it! (Edit): thanks so much for fixing the bug!

Won’t even let me in
by bakin bit on 2020/10/10 01:26
Umm hi to the creators of this app,and hi to everyone that is reading this. All I ever wanted to say is that it won’t let me into the app so I can’t really see how it works so you really need to fix that other than that I don’t have anything to say because I can’t get into the app to check it out.
Its awsome

Glitching every since iOS 14
not working
by whoever said it on 2020/10/08 18:02
the app is really good hands down, it’s way easier for me to edit thumbnails and everything. it’s just that now for some reason everytime when i try and use it, it clicks me out and i cant use it. i tried redownloading it and restarting my phone several times but nothing is working. so it has to be the app itself. i would like to keep using phonto if it gets fixed. thank you
Always room for improvement
by Jvillarreal74 on 2020/10/08 15:10
I wish I was able to create a word, with a curved edge on top and straight on the bottom, or vice versa.

PNG..
by FJABoston on 2020/10/07 16:35
I love using this app because I can add things to pictures and create my own anything but since the latest software update for Apple I’ve noticed that my phone shows it as a png but the app adds a white background when I go to add image. The only other time I’ve ever had this problem was during the last major software update from Apple last year. Can’t wait for your new update to fix this issue. Thank you. yes all of my apps are up-to-date.
Fonts not there
by Installed Apps on 2020/10/07 14:47
After updating to the new IOS 14 software, the app no longer has the fonts that I have installed into my phone.
Phonto
by BrookeDowd557 on 2020/10/07 01:24
I’ve been using this app for years and not once had a problem until its most recent update. Now, it won’t open certain pictures no matter what I do. I’ve tried force closing the app and that doesn’t seem to work and it’s frustrating and annoying. This bug needs to be fixed soon. To add on to that, now phonto is not allowing me to save photos which makes the app completely useless.
It keeps force closing
by Jazz Cartier baby on 2020/10/07 01:21
Ever since the iOS 14 update ,Phonto has been force closing on me and I hate to give it one star but this is one of the main apps I use for a lot of my text that I put on t shirts and etc.I would love to have this solved soon so I could go back to creating .
Highly Efficient Creative Tool
by K. Warrior on 2020/10/06 03:30
To be fair, perhaps there’s dozens of apps to write over pictures that are decent, but this one has offered the most versatility & user friendly experience, short of Photoshop on my desktop or laptop (I’m a graphic designer). I use this just to make quick quotes over photos to promote my podcast IG page and its interface makes it easy, w/ plenty of style choices, filled with more than enough fonts, and able to darken or mask photos to make text stand out (on iPhone). Perfect tool. I don’t write reviews often, but must give credit where it’s due. Great job on creative efficiency for FREE.

by Vrkenzie on 2020/10/04 18:29
I love this app and I use it a lot, but for some reason now I cannot get the app to open up. It just keeps crashing right when I open that app, Please fix this
Useful, but flawed
by yaro obba on 2020/10/04 15:28
The 3D and curved text options are very cool, though the interface that reveals them is not easily discoverable. Also, it is not made clear that the former requires an in-app purchase until you try to use it. Knocking down by 2 stars because saved images lose resolution (trying out on iPad Pro).
What happened to the text?
by hvxsilverstar on 2020/10/04 01:53
I used to be able to add text to images and now there is no text feature, just a 1.99 add on
Great App!
by Clarion on 2020/10/03 07:01
I love this app. It’s far better than any other app of its kind. The latest release though has a glitch. When you use symbols, there’s no way you can get out of the screen as the DONE button is gone. Please fix. Thanks!
You f broke it
by Sac59345934 on 2020/10/03 06:57

by ricerolls on 2020/10/02 03:15

What’s the problem??

It’s really good for editing
by the game needed wifi on 2020/09/30 21:03

by TOOPYHaiti on 2020/09/28 18:20
Very good app. It’s been a long time since I m using it to add text to my Graphic Designs
One Problem
by TXB ALL ON ME🖕🏽 on 2020/09/28 14:52
I Loved the app as a whole but just one thing I have to say about is that when you cast a shadow on the bolder and bigger text like impact there's not much shadow there even if you use 100% alpha so that's one thing is really appreciated if you fix it because I like when I can have a shadow on my text and if I blur it out it gets bigger but at the same time it loses its darkness if you understand what I mean but yeah can you just make it to where there are more options for shadow especially more options for how big the shadow can be

What happened to my pngs?
by deelookslikeliveactioncatnhat on 2020/09/27 05:52
It would have been 4 stars about an hour ago but now when I go to add a png that I KNOW is a png it will have a white background which totally defeats the purpose of a png. Also why can’t I save a draft? That’s silly. Fix it please.
Won’t Start up!
by Miyako ;) on 2020/09/27 04:15
The app just will not start up, I click on it and it goes to the home screen, I have to do a flyer!!!
PNG converts to JPG
by Ryan from @80sCinemas on 2020/09/27 03:14
This app would get 5 stars but I noticed ever since the iOS 14 update or maybe even earlier, when I load a transparent background and add text, it has the white background after. Needs to be fixed!!!
Something is wrong
by bcndmbdbc on 2020/09/27 00:10
Phonto was working perfectly fine this morning while I was using it, but now it is completely lagging! I cannot get into the app; I keep trying but it only takes me back to my home screen. I am not happy about his at all! It was to the point where I had to delete the app which I’m pretty deleted all the fonts I downloaded on da.fonts, and when I opened it again the same thing happened! (It just took me back home) Not pleased whats so ever. If there is anyway to fix this that would be amazing!!
TERRIBLE
by Hacker295987 on 2020/09/26 20:49
I used this app all the time and for some reason it keeps crashing they need to fix the bug for PHONTO IT’S SO BAD!!!!!!
I love Phonto!!
by peteybot on 2019/07/03 07:52
I love Phonto so much. I have and will recommend this to friends until i run out of breath. For mobile editing, Phonto is literally a top 3 app. Like it's literally essential for photo editing. Anyway, back to business. Don't let my five stars fool you, there ARE things to be done, but regardless this app is unmatched. I have one request and one bug fix to discuss. We'll start with the bug. Small bug but still worth fixing. When I am in the color pattern menu and I've decided on my pattern, when I click "Done" the app acts like I clicked the button next to it where it prompts a screen that asks me to choose between ombré or character-by-character patterns. In order to successfully leave the color pattern screen I have to click the edge of the screen, past the done button lol. Also, I would like to request something. It would be very very VERY helpful to insert a feature into the app where we can create folders for our fonts (fonts can be in multiple folders btw). It just helps a lot when you have a ton of fonts in your library. Thanks for reading! Much love. 💗
A few suggestions! Great app!

There’s a few things I would love to see in this app. Firstly the ability to save a draft of work!! I can’t tell you how many times I was multitasking, received a call or anything and I go back to this app and my work is gone. Of course we have restore previous state but that only works so well. If my phone dies then that’s gone. And if I save the work into a picture file the content is no longer movable. The second thing I would love to see is that when we start from a plain photo that the background be actually pure white and not almost there. What I mean is that the values begin at 250,250,250 which is almost there. But when I click on the white color box the values change to 255,255,255. If the values could start there for a white plain photo that’d be awesome!! Otherwise I love the ability to create in this app and all the fonts I have accumulated! Thank you!!
JUST LET ME SAVE PROJECTS
by justaguywhousesapp on 2019/06/12 16:42
I absolutely love Phonto and I think that without it, I’d never have started making niche memes and stuff like that, and this app makes the creation of such things exponentially more simple then on other software. I only have one complaint, and that complaint is enough to warrant 4 stars instead of 5. You can not save your Phonto projects if you close the app. Please, for the love of god, take inspiration from other photo editing software programs, and allow your users to close the project they are currently working on and have the ability to return to the app later and pick up where they left off on the project they were editing. I speak on behalf of every person who owns your app when I say that it is so frustrating to have your day’s work systematically deleted just because you can’t dedicate multiple hours to one editing project. Give us the option to put it down and pick it back up in the same spot, or none of your users will feel motivated to pick up the app anymore.
phonto!
by Annakm133 on 2019/09/15 20:19
thank u, thank u, THANK U for making this app so affordable, effortless, and so high quality! every font is so easy to download and use, with literally hundreds of thousands of fonts to choose from! when you use it, there are so so many possibilities and unique changes you can make to the text. it’s perfect - seriously hands down. i wouldn’t change a thing. not a ton of ads, barely any, actually. very professional, quick, and sooooooo user-friendly! not like any other app where certain and almost all the necessary features are locked; on phonto you literally can do anything! i love this app to death, seriously. when you download the photo you added text to, if you zoom in, the font is SO HQ!! it literally makes me so happy. if i could rate it 6 stars, i would. absolutely recommend. this is a must have app for editors!!! (also no watermark is just the best thing ever)
Just one tiny feature from becoming 5 star app...
by cmplxbeats on 2019/06/29 08:54
I love this app!! ❤️ I’ve been having it for years now and I use it almost daily to try out new ideas I get when I don’t have photoshop or illustrator in front of me. I love importing fonts from safari and using the tools to manipulate the characters. I wish I could give this app 5 stars, just one thing that would make my process much faster: A grid. (Snap grid of you want to spoil us.) I use the background grid religiously but often gets difficult to ‘eye it out’ the more you reach the center of the screen. I’m sure many others would be interested, if not already have suggested. But with its little to nothing, minor flaws, I love it. I’m glad I stumbled across this one many years ago. I have this on both my iPhones and my iPad Pro. I also use Vonto! 😁 Great work to everyone involved. P.S: If you guys REALLY want to spoil us, Ad a feature where users can turn layers on/off, and export transparent images (.png)
Best App for ANYTHING you need!
by zeniamusic on 2020/03/28 13:42
Literally the best app on the planet. I have been using it for quite some time and didn’t really realize how much I loved it, until I noticed it’s basically the only app I use for my marketing needs. If you’re a creative person you’ll be able to make MAGIC with this app. I use it for basically everything. It’s usability is seamless, no lag, no crashes, no complexities, just perfection. If you need help with creativity this might not be the best app, because you really have to start from scratch (WHICH IS WHAT I LOVE) and that is what is unusual but amazing about this app. Dear Developers: Don’t change it. Don’t go commercial. Please keep this clean like it is. Only thing I’d ADD is an automatic save feature for projects and the ability to cross edit with other users. But basically that’s it. It’s amazing. <3
EXCELLENT text app! Just a few suggestions, though...
by Jcfffff on 2020/08/10 17:48
I absolutely LOVE this app. I can’t get enough of it! It’s so much fun to use, and I’m like a kid in the candy store picking out fonts and plastering them over my photoshop projects. But as much as I love this app, there are just a few minor quibbles that, if fixed, will make this superb app even better: -Save fonts to Cloud in case we have to delete the app. (I had to clean out my phone today, and lost ALL of my fonts. VERY aggravating). -Allow color gradations/blends on the stroke option. It will add more dimension to the main text gradient settings. -Allow font families to be grouped into one folder. -Add a zoom option PLEASE. It’s hard to view and form small print without squinting our eyes. -Implement a bezier curve option to curve/3D tools. Please find a way to allow users to create more intricate arches and twists. It would be easier than typing multiple letter boxes at different sizes for a "bump" look. -Color picker to automatically match text colors to pictures. -Text fade option (vertical/horizontal/diagonal) and text distortion filters. Nonetheless, this app rocks. Please fix the bugs and add some much-needed upgrades. Thanks again -A very satisfied user
Love it, use it daily... but small issues..
by luka1234 on 2019/09/01 14:33
I love this app, I use it every single day for creating and editing images for my small business.. There are some small issues and glitches that I’ve been dealing with lately, though— sometimes when I go to add text, it isn’t showing up (yes, color is a contrasting color, and the box where the text should be shows up, but there’s no text in it). Also— I upgraded and added features, and one feature had a thumbnail of text wrapping around a hand, with parts of the word erased— I cannot figure out how to do this, and I can’t find a tutorial... Help? I love this app and I want to keep using it and to keep suggesting it to friends, but these glitches are setting me back.. :(
What’s going on?
by miamimaya on 2020/05/12 14:01
First off I do wanna say I love this app and it’s been such a big help to me making the pictures and logos I need for my business, however there is a bug or something happening! Because now when I try to add a picture as a background instead of tapping anywhere on the screen to make a text it’s causing the background picture to move But when I remove the background I’m able to add text and all this other good stuff witch is kinda frustrating that I have to type out my text first and then add all of my photos can this be fixed or do I need a new app? I would hate to get rid of Phonto but if this keeps on I might have to find me another app please fix this thank you
My favorite fonting app.
by rpmendez on 2019/07/22 17:49
For six years, Phonto has been my go-to app for adding text to images. There is *so much* that’s great about it! • Text formatting such as font, color, shadow, and line and letter spacing is easy and intuitive and offers tremendous variety. • Positioning, sizing and tilting blocks of text is smooth and easy. • Adding and manipulating pictures and objects is easy. • Importing new fonts is not too tricky—and it’s easy, once you know how. Recommendations for the devs: • Formatted style can be “paintbrushed” across text blocks easily (a plus!), but selected blocks all inherit the style of the oldest box; it’d be nice to be able to choose the parent. • Please offer word-wrapping for text boxes in the main editor! I often go through a number of resizings throughout a project, and it’s not uncommon to need to manually adjust line breaks. • Please offer a “save” function for fully editable templates or completed images —there are a number of things I do frequently enough that going through all the adjusting each time seems silly. I do appreciate that I can “restore previous image”, but often that’s not the thing I need to work with. Thanks!
Download this Right Now.
by WhatsnewNoonoo on 2020/10/10 03:50
So this app is amazing... but there has been a problem that happened very recently. When I want to upload photo albums I can’t. Well it’s not that I can’t it’s just that when I go to settings ‘Phonto’ does not appear. So I can’t edit anymore or add texts to my photos. Please fix this or respond back, maybe it’s just my phone. Or maybe it’s because I uninstalled it and reinstalled it becauze I though that would work. You also cannot add photos on top of your other photos anymore OR... add items like a like button or a subscribe button. This would be my review from the past if I had not experienced this problem: OMG OMG INSTALL THIS APP RIGHT NOW OR ELSE I WILL COME TO YOUR HOUSE AND INSTALL IT FOR YOU! IT’S AMAZING! YOU CAN DO MANY THINGS LIKE ADD TEXTS WITH SO MANY COOL FONTS AND ADD PHOTOS, IF YOU DONT’T HAVE PHOTOS YOU CAN USE PLAIN IMAGES! You can do many other things like add items! I am still feeling like that but all I need is to fix these problems or solve them because I need it for my videos, you have been such a help so please fix this! Let me know if you can respond because I need it! (Edit): thanks so much for fixing the bug!
Love this App!
by heavlighttt on 2020/05/17 13:11
I love this app and it has helped transform my business by making social posts easy to do on the go. It is intuitive to use and has lots of good features and fonts. I love that you can save projects and be able to come back to formats after I’m done with files. The way to work with layers to fix things afterward is so nice. The only thing I wish is that it had lock-to grids so I can always center my fonts. Please add this to an update! It’s difficult to center different layers of texts to all be properly aligned. Would you be able to add this feature? Thank you. Five stars regardless. Highly recommend to anyone, even just for fun.
Such a good tool and wayyy too underated
by meimei9876 on 2020/05/18 02:07
In my opinion, this app is extremely good. Especially for editing videos etc. I use this and Vont to edit some of my videos. The only reason that some people don’t like this app is because they dont know how to use it. They think there is only a few fonts that you can use but that’s not true because you can go on free websites to download cute aesthetic fonts onto the app. Which to me, is extremely handy. Whats really good about this app is that, theres no limit to how much words you can put onto your pictures. And theres many ways you can decorate and customize your sentence and words.
Highly Efficient Creative Tool
by K. Warrior on 2020/10/06 03:30
To be fair, perhaps there’s dozens of apps to write over pictures that are decent, but this one has offered the most versatility & user friendly experience, short of Photoshop on my desktop or laptop (I’m a graphic designer). I use this just to make quick quotes over photos to promote my podcast IG page and its interface makes it easy, w/ plenty of style choices, filled with more than enough fonts, and able to darken or mask photos to make text stand out (on iPhone). Perfect tool. I don’t write reviews often, but must give credit where it’s due. Great job on creative efficiency for FREE.
This app is a lifesaver
by knnthlw on 2019/10/30 02:16
What I like about this app is how easy it is to design all kinds of ideas. I’ve quickly created mock up ideas of book cover pages, ebook covers, encouraging phrases with warm background colors, telling stories with emojis, creating funny memes, and a whole lot more. With saying all that, it would be nice to load an image or screenshot into Phonto from Photos app, or right after taking a screenshot. Currently, after saving the photo or screenshot, I have to open the Phonto app to load the photo or screenshot. Other than that, this app is irreplaceable!
Video ads
by trammmq on 2020/08/16 23:48
Good app but it’s irritating and I dread having to use it when I’m trying to edit photos while listening to music. An ad pops up after EVERY. SINGLE. Picture that I edit and it’s almost always a video ad which turns my music off. I understand the app needs ads and don’t have a problem with that but it’s so annoying having to constantly turn my music back on after an ad turns it off. It’s especially annoying when it doesn’t take me that long to edit a photo (like when I’m just adding a watermark to a picture. That usually takes like fifteen seconds at the most to do before I can move on to editing the next picture. Which means I’m having to restart the app and ten my music back on basically every fifteen seconds) very annoying.
Best App on my phone
by Torimadisyn on 2020/07/29 16:30
This app is so useful. Being an artist, I have trouble designing the layout of paintings with words on them. This app allows me to type out all the words that will be on the painting and arrange them in the way I want them. I also love the text options and the way you can customize the words. It's as simple as making the draft on my phone and emailing the finished product to my computer so that I can trace the words and transfer them to my painting. This app is a must have for artists. <3 *EDIT* I’ve always been supportive of this app but honestly I’m about to delete it. It won’t even save my projects anymore more than half the time. I’m seriously annoyed and looking for a different app.
Storing projects
by casaontherez on 2019/08/06 13:33
I love Phonto and recommended it to people all the time. It’s simple to use. I appreciate being able to put a border on fonts to make them more readable. I’ve bought a few of the add ons and they were worth it. I just discovered a few cool tricks like curving text. The only frustrating thing is that I can’t save my projects (or if I can, it’s not clear how). I have combed through the app trying to figure this out. I’d like to be able to revisit projects or make minor changes sometimes without having to recreate the whole thing.
Best of its kind!!
by Must rhyme on 2019/10/18 23:21
This is the one you're looking for! Want to simply add text to your images, have all the known fonts available, put multiple fonts in a variety of styles on one image and do it all completely free? I mean, for real free?? Then, like I said, this is the one you want!! One quick add when you go to save your work. I tried a bunch of different ones before I ran across this excellent app. Took me a couple of times before I learned all of the ways to use all the different features, but don't worry, you'll figure it it out.
My Most Used App
by Babestaaaaaaaa on 2019/06/12 01:33
Phonto does what it needs to do as an app and more! I use Phonto for all of my insta editing that I need to do and it’s super simple and easy to use. It allows you to choose from a variety of fonts and also gives you the option to download preferred fonts from the web. You can layer pictures on top of one another and scale them in creative ways. There aren’t a lot of apps out there that do what they do and do it well. Phonto always comes in handy when I need it and allows me to be innovative with all my posts! Love this app!!!
I love this app, however, there is a bug I need help with
by Good game but lots of bugs. on 2019/05/27 11:01
I love this app, it’s very useful to me when I need to edit photos on the fly. When I got a new iPhone XR however, anytime I try and add a photo I get stuck in the shape crop screen with no option to continue. I suspect the continue/select button is perhaps not able to fit on the screen since the screen size is different. If this could be addressed soon I would be very happy since I’m not able to fully use the app right now because of this bug. Thank you
This app is absolutely great!!! BUT.....
by Sgate631988 on 2019/10/03 21:04
I really enjoy using this app but i believe it could use some great updates. I would like to see a tool to crop the background by color. Since i have to go use another app then come back to finish editing my project. Also another issue i run with this is when i download a image (png file) sometimes it adds a white background when it doesn’t suppose to. Other than this issues, this app is great and it’s free!! Thank you guys , i hope you guys look into this feedback.
Been using for YEARS and it's so simple and great
by poisonivey666 on 2020/10/19 07:35
If you need to work up ads quickly and professionally this is the app for you it's super simple (a kid could use it)and the end product always looks professional. Can we talk about the list of fonts omg there is soooooo many. It doesn't matter if you're making a meme or drafting up a fancy advertisement this app is awesome and free! I've been using it for at least 3 years now prob longer without any issues or problems at all! I never write reviews but this app deserves one.
Amazing, but one suggestion...
by Tabylor B on 2020/06/26 05:12
This app is amazing for adding text to pics. I have tried a bunch of others, and Phonto is the easiest to use with the most options, styles and fonts. I especially love that you can add your own fonts. You don’t have to pay and the app doesn’t leave a watermark! The only thing I wish this app had is some kind of guide lines or “snap” tool that lets you center a text box. This is the only thing I would change, and if this feature was added it would be perfect!
IM DONE
by tghdjdjdjdj on 2019/06/15 03:33
Okay so they say in the new update that they have “fixed the bugs” I was like “Finally!” so I go into the Phonto app and the app crashes 2 times! Not only that but it deletes everything I do! I’m thinking about deleting the app because this has honestly got on my nerves. Don’t download this app because it will just cause your iPhone to glitch IM WARNING YOU don’t download it! After I downloaded this app my iPhone had unexpected glitches that they hadn’t had before....and then I download this! I hope the creators or developers see this!
Good
by EclipseSunandMoon on 2019/08/11 14:09
I like you can use many different fonts, but I want to download some more good ones to use but I have to go on a website that’s restricted for me. So, I can’t go on the website to download the fonts. I would really like if you could add the fonts you can download to the fonts that are available, because it’s really frustrating because I tried to find a font someone used on their video that I liked, but then I found out you had to download it :( (P.S the fonts available are also pretty good)
So useful!
by Maddddiiiiieeee on 2019/11/25 00:33
This handy app has helped me with so much! Not only simply adding a plain text, but there’s so many other things. Thousands of designs to choose from whether it’s the style, the font, or both. Also it allows you to add on pictures and items to the workplace which makes it even more useful. I used to make edits on Instagram, and this was my go-to place. I still use it quite often for wallpapers, family edits, and much more. Definitely recommend getting this, so much for free!
The perfect tool for an IG writing account
by BMXdork on 2020/10/29 22:31
I use Phonto exclusively for my Instagram writing account. I use it for my cover slides, and use a black background with the charter roman font in white for my actual pieces. I can format a ten slide post in about five minutes on Phonto. And I get compliments on my layout all the time. The free version was decent, but the couple bucks you pay for no ads is worth it’s weight in gold, and all the other features are super cheap and most definitely worth the one or two dollar price. Stellar app
Best App available!
by jweirdkid on 2019/11/10 18:47
Ive been using Phonto for years. Its the best app to create quick text over images and crop photos to square. Also has the ability to download fonts from the web and use them within the app. My only complaint and hope they can fix it, is with the new Dark Mode if you choose black background its a little hard to see whats part of the picture and whats the app background. Im sure its a simple fix and developers will get it fixed asap.
So Quick & Easy!
by TheRealTeaSlimeShop on 2020/03/09 04:46
Trust me! This is one of the best quality editing pics, or even posters out there! It’s extra curricular with tsk many fonts, colors & cool editing. It’s so quick and easy and not super picky and hard or time consuming! It’s almost fun to do and I just love it so much! I never write reviews for apps ever!, but I decided to with this app since it is so fabulous & Is up port it greatly, too much actually? I don’t think so, because this app, you can NEVER support too much because of its greatness! ❤️❤️❤️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️👍👍👍🌈🌈🌈🌈
It’s a great app, just needs something...
by aJiSsTiLlChIlL on 2019/09/04 02:26
Phonto is such a great app! You can make so many things such as transparent backgrounds, logos, decals for Roblox, etc. but this one thing bothers me a lot, ads. Every time you save the photo, an ad pops up. It’s very annoying and you have to pay to get rid of the ads, some people don’t have that type of money and have to spend there time watching ads or clicking off of them. Maybe every time you save 10 photos there’s an ad or have no ads at all, again Phonto is a great app! I really like it, it’s just the ads man.
Annoying Glitches
by lsc2_ on 2019/10/06 20:13
There are so many annoying glitches with this app, but the most recent and more prominent one is the fact that if I try to add a png it just has a white background. Even if I make it a png and removes the background in third-party apps, it still has the white background. This completely ruins everything, I usually only ever use this for thumbnails on videos so not having the option to add pngs seemingly at random is stupid. There are many other issues with crashing and such. Overall it's an great app but I probably won't be using it anymore, and the glitches are why.
PNG..
by FJABoston on 2020/10/07 16:35
I love using this app because I can add things to pictures and create my own anything but since the latest software update for Apple I’ve noticed that my phone shows it as a png but the app adds a white background when I go to add image. The only other time I’ve ever had this problem was during the last major software update from Apple last year. Can’t wait for your new update to fix this issue. Thank you. yes all of my apps are up-to-date.
Won’t Let Me Upload Photos Anymore
by huhhhejsbsjj on 2019/05/27 13:36
So I absolutely love this app, and it’s a key component in my Instagram posts. Yesterday, it stopped letting me upload photos to overlay text onto. After choosing which photo, it goes to the filters screen, then it won’t let me advance to the actual photo editing portion. There’s just no button or anything to advance forward. I’ve deleted and redownloaded the app; and have tried everything I could think of, and it just isn’t allowing it. Would really appreciate this being fixed because no other app has the features or simplicity of this one.
Absolutely Amazing
by Chckrdstarfire7145825 on 2020/02/12 17:00
I don’t typically write reviews about an app unless I’m upset about the quality of one. However this app and its developers deserve the positive affirmation! This app is excellently executed and has all the features one needs to make amazing graphics and construct professional quality posts. The list of available fonts is endless and the ability to add your own favorites with such ease makes this app extremely versatile and as always user friendly.
AMAZING
by Goats are the best 🐐 on 2020/06/05 01:18
I love phonto. It’s 100% free (which is shocking for an editing app) and such great quality. Nothing in this app costs money, and there are NO ADS!!! There’s so much to explore with font colors and patterns that the app is perfect for font lovers everywhere. Although it doesn’t save projects which seems to be the main compliant, making sure that you download to camera roll before closing the app for an extended period of time alleviates this issue. Overall I love it and it’s a must-have for me.
So amazing! Can’t say nothing :)
by melissaprewe on 2019/06/14 02:20
This app is just the perfect app for me! I really love this app, and helps me a lot! I used it for my thumbnails and also to write in videos but I wish there was like more decorations available and also I would like something that you can choose a theme of your thumbnail or etc. I mean like if you want horror and you click that it gives you all horror things and if you want romantic or funny it could be same! But besides that I surely love this app :D
The best photo editing app EVER!
by [11insert nickname11] on 2019/08/04 17:37
i love phonto, you can easily add text and words to a picture and you can also add pictures to a photo and it’s overall amazing! 🤩 also this app is super helpful for a lot of things and plus it has NO watermark! ✨ that is amazing! but the one thing i don’t like about this amazing app is that when i save the photo, the text and the pictures i added come out all blurry, but that’s why i screen shot my final result! Overall AMAZING app!
Great, but needs some work.
by Khazoooey on 2019/05/31 02:14
This is an awesome app with lots of excellent features. A few improvements that I think will help make this app better is if it could save templates or previously worked on projects. The other minor but important thing that seemed to have been overlooked was the ability to duplicate objects. Currently that feature doesn’t seem to exist. Also, it would be incredibly helpful if there was an undo button of some sort. If I have missed these features somewhere, please let me know!
Saving projects...
by W13th on 2020/01/03 04:39
Makes an already perfect app even better. Phonto user since day 1 & since day 1, it's been my favorite app. I mean that. Every new device I get it's always my 1st redownload. @ it for hours a day bc it just does so much, so well. Perfect on it's own or in addition to other editors. Whether u like photo editing just a little or love it a whole lot, Phonto & Fontasy are must-haves. Super highly recommend both to any & everyone. Dead &/or alive. Get this app, ASAP!!
Fast and easy to use
by SoteriaGlobal on 2019/12/29 15:12
I have been using the free version of Phonto. I have used it for well over a year. Aside from spellcheck feature not being available, the look and feel of the infographics and Memes is exceptional. For those who are skeptical, visit at serving2success on Instagram. Every single quote and infographic on this profile has been done with Phonto. The versatility of this app really makes it a five star app, so I’m giving it five stars.
Awesome and useful!
by JaneOliver22 on 2019/06/21 18:06
This app has a lot of really attractive fonts and its simple to use. I'm an illustrator and this app has made my life a lot easier when working on storyboards. I just snap a picture of my work, type in my text, and I can move it easily to see where it'll work best in my final product. Also fun for adding in text to snapshots. BUT- despite having purchased this app, I’m still bombarded with commercials. What gives??
Amazing but is missing a few things..
by WhadayaMeanBra on 2019/11/02 00:12
I love this app for running my sports page! However, I think there’s a few thing that you guys can fix, one is adding more shapes, such as parallelograms. Another is Text being able to go under shapes, I can’t get it to go under it and try to reduce the alpha on the shape to make it look cool! That’s it, other than that, it’s an amazing app and would say it’s the best on mobile by far.
Why Three and Not Five Stars
by tmvoh on 2019/08/31 03:58
Phonto is such an easy and simple app to use. Just pop a photo and add text. What makes it great is that it’s simple, nothing complicated like other apps. The app is basically your blank canvas. However, my only issue is the storing. I switch between my tablet and phone a lot while editing due to what I have in my hands at the moment. As a result, everything on my phone is not on my tablet. For instance, I downloaded a bunch of fonts on my phone, but those fonts will only be on my phone, not my tablet. In addition, it would be nice if Phonto saved designs (maybe through iCloud or their own storage system?) There have been many times where I wanted to redo a design but couldn't because it was weeks ago and I had already made other designs. If Phonto finds a way to allow cross device usage and storage, that would be definitely deserve a five star!
extremely useful!
by starline✨ on 2019/12/14 13:40
I’ve been using this app for about 1 year and a half. It’s probably one of the best apps I’ve used to layout pictures for ig. Everything about it is amazing. It’s easy to import photos, download fonts and etc. Just like everything in existence, it has its problems. The main problem I have with this app is the fact it doesn’t have shadows / shading for photos. If they added shadowing for pictures Phonto would be the best photo editing app in my opinion.
Miss when the fonts used to have numbers :/
by ShannonBlooms on 2019/12/28 18:24
I love this app & the endless content you are able to make on it, however, I have used this app for a very long time and after the update the numbers for the fonts went away. For example, for a font, it does not tell you how much saturation or contrast there is anymore. That is the only problem I have with this app, otherwise, I love it :)
Freezes

So this app is really good for using fonts on your photos! But there’s just one thing about it that I don’t like, the freezing. Whenever I try to use my fonts on pictures it ends up freezing up. I checked and it isn’t my phone. It only happens with this app. Because of all the freezing, I have to leave the app but when I come back, all of my work is deleted. This makes me really unhappy and I want an update so that it stops freezing. After that, I will change this to a 5 star rating.
I. LOVE. THIS. APP.
by Gacha Bears on 2020/08/28 03:17
Honestly I was not paid to write this and I certainly NEVER write reviews but I want to tell you guys it is amazing! I use it for thumbnails and watermarks and it doesn’t even put a watermark on your work! Everything is free and you don’t need to pay to get anything extra! It is quick and easy and BEAUTIFUL. If you are looking for an app to put text on your photos or to just find a cute font you NEED this app! It’s amazing! <3
Great app, could use improvements.

I love using Phonto for designing, but I would also love to see the option for a transparent theme. I use this app to design logos, and it would be much easier if there was a transparent theme option to make use of the png format and to avoid using third party apps to erase the background. Also, there should be grids and lines for text and objects to lock in to ensure everything is in the most precise position. Please consider this in your upcoming updates.

PERFECT APP NO MONEY FOR ANY FONTS!
by Norah Flintoft on 2020/10/30 12:18
This app is so perfect! IT IS SOOO GOOD! It has helped me so much make my YouTube videos, and more! You can choose any font you want for free on any photo you have! Then all you have to do is click one button to save to photos, send to people, and more! It’s so unbelievably awesome!! Thanks,Phonto!
Phonto Phun
by BFJ King on 2020/10/30 04:26
I am enjoying the simplicity of working in Phonto. What phon l am having. I like being able to resize shapes and letters. Being able to choose different fonts is fantastic! I am still exploring all the different things that l can do!
Was better before iOS 14.0 update
by FixItPhonto on 2020/10/30 04:01
Adding an image (Logo) PNG file, now creates a WHITE background behind the images. PLEASE update & change it back, so that we can blend into our images better.
The perfect tool for an IG writing account
by BMXdork on 2020/10/29 22:31
I use Phonto exclusively for my Instagram writing account. I use it for my cover slides, and use a black background with the charter roman font in white for my actual pieces. I can format a ten slide post in about five minutes on Phonto. And I get compliments on my layout all the time. The free version was decent, but the couple bucks you pay for no ads is worth it’s weight in gold, and all the other features are super cheap and most definitely worth the one or two dollar price. Stellar app
Excelente app Fotográfica
by Vikcora on 2020/10/29 20:43
Uso esta aplicación de manera continua y es muy sencilla de usar, borra el fondo de las imágenes y las deja con fondo transparente, lo cual ayuda en diseños propios, pulgar arriba 👍👌 No dudes en descargarla 😁
Great
by Mrs.Bibie on 2020/10/29 01:17
This app is very user friendly and was great during my daughter’s wedding preparations. I loved it, it came in very handy.

I don’t know if any of you guys tried the app but it’s amazing!!yall can try it if you want!i really love this!!JUST WOW,
best app, some suggestions tho
by Puppy Fuz on 2020/10/26 19:31
i would like if you could share projects from device to device and if there was an "install all fonts" button when installing fonts via zip also allow us to add more colors when changing the color pallets, sometimes 5 isn’t enough
Love the app just wish...
by lennbunny on 2020/10/26 16:28
... there was a word wrap option or at least a way to adjust text the way you can on an instagram story. it’s very frustrating how text runs off the page and i have to keep manually breaking the lines. More shapes / items would be lovely... Such as plain lines etc... other than that, my go to photo text editing app.
fantastic app
by Jonnn Moxley on 2020/10/26 14:10
i use it for all of my edits. the only text to picture app i fully trust.
App not working
by Sneaker Queen on 2020/10/26 00:55
When I pick a photo to edit, it will not let me select some photos. I don’t know what happened and the app is current on update It was working fine a couple weeks ago. Now I guess I’m going to use a different app, mind you I’ve been using this for urs with no issues.
app is great, so many ads.

Won’t Open
by ashlii_smith on 2020/10/20 19:50
I was loving Phonto until I downloaded ios 14 and now the app won’t even open. It just pops up and exits. I wish it was working!
Update Needed ASAP
by HouseFullOfKidz on 2020/10/20 15:35
Can we PLEASE get an update for iOS 14!! Half of my installed fonts disappeared from Phonto after the update. I use this app daily and now I’m having to use several different others just to make up for this one not working properly. All the fonts are installed on my phone as the font profiles are still showing in my settings. However, more than half are now missing in Phonto.
Very good

Why do you say your app is free when it’s not. You have to pay just erase anything. You have to pay to make changes. Just say up front you can download for free but you will have to pay to use it correctly.
Beat app to edit a photo Download it
by PutYoHandown on 2020/10/19 23:45
I recommend this app because it have so many features to edit you photo with i it’s this app to edit my thumbnails for YouTube also I recommend getting the premium
Videos
by Diin0Chqrr on 2020/10/19 21:35
Okay I love this app in all, but we can’t edit videos? That’s what I’m here for, editing videos in text. I know vont exists but you can only use 4 text! Like what the actual heck, I need to edit more than one text, and it changes the filters??? Phonto can you please let me edit videos, it would be my dream!
Freezes
by UGH8888😫😡☹️ on 2020/10/19 17:31
So this app is really good for using fonts on your photos! But there’s just one thing about it that I don’t like, the freezing. Whenever I try to use my fonts on pictures it ends up freezing up. I checked and it isn’t my phone. It only happens with this app. Because of all the freezing, I have to leave the app but when I come back, all of my work is deleted. This makes me really unhappy and I want an update so that it stops freezing. After that, I will change this to a 5 star rating.
Not phontos fault
by PookieWonk on 2020/10/19 15:52
Since the iOS 13 update I can no longer download fonts to pronto and I hate that. I tried to find a way to contact the developer but can’t find one. I just wish I could sk if this can be fixed.
Been using for YEARS and it's so simple and great
by poisonivey666 on 2020/10/19 07:35
If you need to work up ads quickly and professionally this is the app for you it's super simple (a kid could use it)and the end product always looks professional. Can we talk about the list of fonts omg there is soooooo many. It doesn't matter if you're making a meme or drafting up a fancy advertisement this app is awesome and free! I've been using it for at least 3 years now prob longer without any issues or problems at all! I never write reviews but this app deserves one.
update !!

Phonto Review 5/5
by AliceRivw on 2020/10/18 04:08
Literally The Best Editor For Text and Photo
Latest update is terrible
by tadghkiytd on 2020/10/18 02:16
I used to love this app but with this new update all of my pictures are degraded/blurry. So I hope they fix this soon.
iPhone good iPad bad
by Moses0992 on 2020/10/18 01:43
I love the app on my iPhone but I can’t get it to open photos on my iPad. Which is really unfortunate because what I use it for would be much easier to edit on iPad.
Adding PNG watermark no longer works
by mzr7758 on 2020/10/17 17:18
Now adding a PNG watermark image with clear background will just show as solid white background.
This app is the best!
by Emere 101 on 2020/10/17 15:46
I would highly recommend this app if you love editing and they have awesome text fonts and you can use awesome fonts, you can do awesome things with the fonts
Review.. listen up
by NcoleN on 2020/10/16 11:57
I have used Phonto for many years. Recommend it to many people when they ask how I make the fonts on my photos. But the political ads have been obnoxious. I have replaced this app with another app that doesn’t spam me with a political ad every time I save a photo. Updated. The app doesn’t save photos anymore. Its hit or miss. I had to stop using

How do I add vids into it?
Too confusing.
by NorthWynd33 on 2020/10/13 18:21
The interface is way too confusing, as I could not figure out at all how to curve the text or do much at all really past adding text and changing the color. No perspective, no curved text, I couldn’t find anything. Not what i’m looking for in an app.
Fun Fun Fun
by Darcielynn67 on 2020/10/13 16:41
It's user friendly, easy to import additional fonts. I'm using it much more than I ever thought I would. It’s my “go to” for putting words on things.
Love It
by RDHutch on 2020/10/13 11:42
This APP is great for personalizing photographs, birthday cards, etc. I use it every day.

by Eee-yip8 on 2020/10/12 17:28
This is my go to app when I need a text app for my flyers and graphics. You import text and utilize all the texts in your system. Only issue I have is, I would love if I can change the height of the text with the width being affected and vice versa!
WOW

Will not let me in app
by NamiDii on 2020/10/10 21:10
It will not let me in the app I have downloaded and uninstalled more than 5 times please fix this bug
Download this Right Now.
by WhatsnewNoonoo on 2020/10/10 03:50
So this app is amazing... but there has been a problem that happened very recently. When I want to upload photo albums I can’t. Well it’s not that I can’t it’s just that when I go to settings ‘Phonto’ does not appear. So I can’t edit anymore or add texts to my photos. Please fix this or respond back, maybe it’s just my phone. Or maybe it’s because I uninstalled it and reinstalled it becauze I though that would work. You also cannot add photos on top of your other photos anymore OR... add items like a like button or a subscribe button. This would be my review from the past if I had not experienced this problem: OMG OMG INSTALL THIS APP RIGHT NOW OR ELSE I WILL COME TO YOUR HOUSE AND INSTALL IT FOR YOU! IT’S AMAZING! YOU CAN DO MANY THINGS LIKE ADD TEXTS WITH SO MANY COOL FONTS AND ADD PHOTOS, IF YOU DONT’T HAVE PHOTOS YOU CAN USE PLAIN IMAGES! You can do many other things like add items! I am still feeling like that but all I need is to fix these problems or solve them because I need it for my videos, you have been such a help so please fix this! Let me know if you can respond because I need it! (Edit): thanks so much for fixing the bug!

Won’t even let me in
by bakin bit on 2020/10/10 01:26
Umm hi to the creators of this app,and hi to everyone that is reading this. All I ever wanted to say is that it won’t let me into the app so I can’t really see how it works so you really need to fix that other than that I don’t have anything to say because I can’t get into the app to check it out.
Its awsome

not working
by whoever said it on 2020/10/08 18:02
the app is really good hands down, it’s way easier for me to edit thumbnails and everything. it’s just that now for some reason everytime when i try and use it, it clicks me out and i cant use it. i tried redownloading it and restarting my phone several times but nothing is working. so it has to be the app itself. i would like to keep using phonto if it gets fixed. thank you
Always room for improvement
by Jvillarreal74 on 2020/10/08 15:10
I wish I was able to create a word, with a curved edge on top and straight on the bottom, or vice versa.

PNG..
by FJABoston on 2020/10/07 16:35
I love using this app because I can add things to pictures and create my own anything but since the latest software update for Apple I’ve noticed that my phone shows it as a png but the app adds a white background when I go to add image. The only other time I’ve ever had this problem was during the last major software update from Apple last year. Can’t wait for your new update to fix this issue. Thank you. yes all of my apps are up-to-date.
Fonts not there
by Installed Apps on 2020/10/07 14:47
After updating to the new IOS 14 software, the app no longer has the fonts that I have installed into my phone.
Phonto
by BrookeDowd557 on 2020/10/07 01:24
I’ve been using this app for years and not once had a problem until its most recent update. Now, it won’t open certain pictures no matter what I do. I’ve tried force closing the app and that doesn’t seem to work and it’s frustrating and annoying. This bug needs to be fixed soon. To add on to that, now phonto is not allowing me to save photos which makes the app completely useless.
It keeps force closing
by Jazz Cartier baby on 2020/10/07 01:21
Ever since the iOS 14 update ,Phonto has been force closing on me and I hate to give it one star but this is one of the main apps I use for a lot of my text that I put on t shirts and etc.I would love to have this solved soon so I could go back to creating .
Highly Efficient Creative Tool
by K. Warrior on 2020/10/06 03:30
To be fair, perhaps there’s dozens of apps to write over pictures that are decent, but this one has offered the most versatility & user friendly experience, short of Photoshop on my desktop or laptop (I’m a graphic designer). I use this just to make quick quotes over photos to promote my podcast IG page and its interface makes it easy, w/ plenty of style choices, filled with more than enough fonts, and able to darken or mask photos to make text stand out (on iPhone). Perfect tool. I don’t write reviews often, but must give credit where it’s due. Great job on creative efficiency for FREE.

I love this app and I use it a lot, but for some reason now I cannot get the app to open up. It just keeps crashing right when I open that app, Please fix this
Useful, but flawed
by yaro obba on 2020/10/04 15:28
The 3D and curved text options are very cool, though the interface that reveals them is not easily discoverable. Also, it is not made clear that the former requires an in-app purchase until you try to use it. Knocking down by 2 stars because saved images lose resolution (trying out on iPad Pro).
What happened to the text?
by hvxsilverstar on 2020/10/04 01:53
I used to be able to add text to images and now there is no text feature, just a 1.99 add on
Great App!
by Clarion on 2020/10/03 07:01
I love this app. It’s far better than any other app of its kind. The latest release though has a glitch. When you use symbols, there’s no way you can get out of the screen as the DONE button is gone. Please fix. Thanks!

Very good app. It’s been a long time since I m using it to add text to my Graphic Designs
One Problem
by TXB ALL ON ME🖕🏽 on 2020/09/28 14:52
I Loved the app as a whole but just one thing I have to say about is that when you cast a shadow on the bolder and bigger text like impact there's not much shadow there even if you use 100% alpha so that's one thing is really appreciated if you fix it because I like when I can have a shadow on my text and if I blur it out it gets bigger but at the same time it loses its darkness if you understand what I mean but yeah can you just make it to where there are more options for shadow especially more options for how big the shadow can be

What happened to my pngs?
by deelookslikeliveactioncatnhat on 2020/09/27 05:52
It would have been 4 stars about an hour ago but now when I go to add a png that I KNOW is a png it will have a white background which totally defeats the purpose of a png. Also why can’t I save a draft? That’s silly. Fix it please.
Won’t Start up!
by Miyako ;) on 2020/09/27 04:15
The app just will not start up, I click on it and it goes to the home screen, I have to do a flyer!!!
PNG converts to JPG
by Ryan from @80sCinemas on 2020/09/27 03:14
This app would get 5 stars but I noticed ever since the iOS 14 update or maybe even earlier, when I load a transparent background and add text, it has the white background after. Needs to be fixed!!!
Something is wrong
by bcndmbdbc on 2020/09/27 00:10
Phonto was working perfectly fine this morning while I was using it, but now it is completely lagging! I cannot get into the app; I keep trying but it only takes me back to my home screen. I am not happy about his at all! It was to the point where I had to delete the app which I’m pretty deleted all the fonts I downloaded on da.fonts, and when I opened it again the same thing happened! (It just took me back home) Not pleased whats so ever. If there is anyway to fix this that would be amazing!!
TERRIBLE
by Hacker295987 on 2020/09/26 20:49
I used this app all the time and for some reason it keeps crashing they need to fix the bug for PHONTO IT’S SO BAD!!!!!!
I love Phonto!!
by peteybot on 2019/07/03 07:52
I love Phonto so much. I have and will recommend this to friends until i run out of breath. For mobile editing, Phonto is literally a top 3 app. Like it's literally essential for photo editing. Anyway, back to business. Don't let my five stars fool you, there ARE things to be done, but regardless this app is unmatched. I have one request and one bug fix to discuss. We'll start with the bug. Small bug but still worth fixing. When I am in the color pattern menu and I've decided on my pattern, when I click "Done" the app acts like I clicked the button next to it where it prompts a screen that asks me to choose between ombré or character-by-character patterns. In order to successfully leave the color pattern screen I have to click the edge of the screen, past the done button lol. Also, I would like to request something. It would be very very VERY helpful to insert a feature into the app where we can create folders for our fonts (fonts can be in multiple folders btw). It just helps a lot when you have a ton of fonts in your library. Thanks for reading! Much love. 💗
A few suggestions! Great app!
by Mattstate on 2019/10/30 13:55
There’s a few things I would love to see in this app. Firstly the ability to save a draft of work!! I can’t tell you how many times I was multitasking, received a call or anything and I go back to this app and my work is gone. Of course we have restore previous state but that only works so well. If my phone dies then that’s gone. And if I save the work into a picture file the content is no longer movable. The second thing I would love to see is that when we start from a plain photo that the background be actually pure white and not almost there. What I mean is that the values begin at 250,250,250 which is almost there. But when I click on the white color box the values change to 255,255,255. If the values could start there for a white plain photo that’d be awesome!! Otherwise I love the ability to create in this app and all the fonts I have accumulated! Thank you!!
JUST LET ME SAVE PROJECTS
by justaguywhousesapp on 2019/06/12 16:42
I absolutely love Phonto and I think that without it, I’d never have started making niche memes and stuff like that, and this app makes the creation of such things exponentially more simple then on other software. I only have one complaint, and that complaint is enough to warrant 4 stars instead of 5. You can not save your Phonto projects if you close the app. Please, for the love of god, take inspiration from other photo editing software programs, and allow your users to close the project they are currently working on and have the ability to return to the app later and pick up where they left off on the project they were editing. I speak on behalf of every person who owns your app when I say that it is so frustrating to have your day’s work systematically deleted just because you can’t dedicate multiple hours to one editing project. Give us the option to put it down and pick it back up in the same spot, or none of your users will feel motivated to pick up the app anymore.
phonto!
by Annakm133 on 2019/09/15 20:19
thank u, thank u, THANK U for making this app so affordable, effortless, and so high quality! every font is so easy to download and use, with literally hundreds of thousands of fonts to choose from! when you use it, there are so so many possibilities and unique changes you can make to the text. it’s perfect - seriously hands down. i wouldn’t change a thing. not a ton of ads, barely any, actually. very professional, quick, and sooooooo user-friendly! not like any other app where certain and almost all the necessary features are locked; on phonto you literally can do anything! i love this app to death, seriously. when you download the photo you added text to, if you zoom in, the font is SO HQ!! it literally makes me so happy. if i could rate it 6 stars, i would. absolutely recommend. this is a must have app for editors!!! (also no watermark is just the best thing ever)
Just one tiny feature from becoming 5 star app...
by cmplxbeats on 2019/06/29 08:54
I love this app!! ❤️ I’ve been having it for years now and I use it almost daily to try out new ideas I get when I don’t have photoshop or illustrator in front of me. I love importing fonts from safari and using the tools to manipulate the characters. I wish I could give this app 5 stars, just one thing that would make my process much faster: A grid. (Snap grid of you want to spoil us.) I use the background grid religiously but often gets difficult to ‘eye it out’ the more you reach the center of the screen. I’m sure many others would be interested, if not already have suggested. But with its little to nothing, minor flaws, I love it. I’m glad I stumbled across this one many years ago. I have this on both my iPhones and my iPad Pro. I also use Vonto! 😁 Great work to everyone involved. P.S: If you guys REALLY want to spoil us, Ad a feature where users can turn layers on/off, and export transparent images (.png)
Best App for ANYTHING you need!
by zeniamusic on 2020/03/28 13:42
Literally the best app on the planet. I have been using it for quite some time and didn’t really realize how much I loved it, until I noticed it’s basically the only app I use for my marketing needs. If you’re a creative person you’ll be able to make MAGIC with this app. I use it for basically everything. It’s usability is seamless, no lag, no crashes, no complexities, just perfection. If you need help with creativity this might not be the best app, because you really have to start from scratch (WHICH IS WHAT I LOVE) and that is what is unusual but amazing about this app. Dear Developers: Don’t change it. Don’t go commercial. Please keep this clean like it is. Only thing I’d ADD is an automatic save feature for projects and the ability to cross edit with other users. But basically that’s it. It’s amazing. <3
EXCELLENT text app! Just a few suggestions, though...
by Jcfffff on 2020/08/10 17:48
I absolutely LOVE this app. I can’t get enough of it! It’s so much fun to use, and I’m like a kid in the candy store picking out fonts and plastering them over my photoshop projects. But as much as I love this app, there are just a few minor quibbles that, if fixed, will make this superb app even better: -Save fonts to Cloud in case we have to delete the app. (I had to clean out my phone today, and lost ALL of my fonts. VERY aggravating). -Allow color gradations/blends on the stroke option. It will add more dimension to the main text gradient settings. -Allow font families to be grouped into one folder. -Add a zoom option PLEASE. It’s hard to view and form small print without squinting our eyes. -Implement a bezier curve option to curve/3D tools. Please find a way to allow users to create more intricate arches and twists. It would be easier than typing multiple letter boxes at different sizes for a "bump" look. -Color picker to automatically match text colors to pictures. -Text fade option (vertical/horizontal/diagonal) and text distortion filters. Nonetheless, this app rocks. Please fix the bugs and add some much-needed upgrades. Thanks again -A very satisfied user
Love it, use it daily... but small issues..
by luka1234 on 2019/09/01 14:33
I love this app, I use it every single day for creating and editing images for my small business.. There are some small issues and glitches that I’ve been dealing with lately, though— sometimes when I go to add text, it isn’t showing up (yes, color is a contrasting color, and the box where the text should be shows up, but there’s no text in it). Also— I upgraded and added features, and one feature had a thumbnail of text wrapping around a hand, with parts of the word erased— I cannot figure out how to do this, and I can’t find a tutorial... Help? I love this app and I want to keep using it and to keep suggesting it to friends, but these glitches are setting me back.. :(
What’s going on?
by miamimaya on 2020/05/12 14:01
First off I do wanna say I love this app and it’s been such a big help to me making the pictures and logos I need for my business, however there is a bug or something happening! Because now when I try to add a picture as a background instead of tapping anywhere on the screen to make a text it’s causing the background picture to move But when I remove the background I’m able to add text and all this other good stuff witch is kinda frustrating that I have to type out my text first and then add all of my photos can this be fixed or do I need a new app? I would hate to get rid of Phonto but if this keeps on I might have to find me another app please fix this thank you
My favorite fonting app.
by rpmendez on 2019/07/22 17:49
For six years, Phonto has been my go-to app for adding text to images. There is *so much* that’s great about it! • Text formatting such as font, color, shadow, and line and letter spacing is easy and intuitive and offers tremendous variety. • Positioning, sizing and tilting blocks of text is smooth and easy. • Adding and manipulating pictures and objects is easy. • Importing new fonts is not too tricky—and it’s easy, once you know how. Recommendations for the devs: • Formatted style can be “paintbrushed” across text blocks easily (a plus!), but selected blocks all inherit the style of the oldest box; it’d be nice to be able to choose the parent. • Please offer word-wrapping for text boxes in the main editor! I often go through a number of resizings throughout a project, and it’s not uncommon to need to manually adjust line breaks. • Please offer a “save” function for fully editable templates or completed images —there are a number of things I do frequently enough that going through all the adjusting each time seems silly. I do appreciate that I can “restore previous image”, but often that’s not the thing I need to work with. Thanks!
Download this Right Now.
by WhatsnewNoonoo on 2020/10/10 03:50
So this app is amazing... but there has been a problem that happened very recently. When I want to upload photo albums I can’t. Well it’s not that I can’t it’s just that when I go to settings ‘Phonto’ does not appear. So I can’t edit anymore or add texts to my photos. Please fix this or respond back, maybe it’s just my phone. Or maybe it’s because I uninstalled it and reinstalled it becauze I though that would work. You also cannot add photos on top of your other photos anymore OR... add items like a like button or a subscribe button. This would be my review from the past if I had not experienced this problem: OMG OMG INSTALL THIS APP RIGHT NOW OR ELSE I WILL COME TO YOUR HOUSE AND INSTALL IT FOR YOU! IT’S AMAZING! YOU CAN DO MANY THINGS LIKE ADD TEXTS WITH SO MANY COOL FONTS AND ADD PHOTOS, IF YOU DONT’T HAVE PHOTOS YOU CAN USE PLAIN IMAGES! You can do many other things like add items! I am still feeling like that but all I need is to fix these problems or solve them because I need it for my videos, you have been such a help so please fix this! Let me know if you can respond because I need it! (Edit): thanks so much for fixing the bug!
Love this App!
by heavlighttt on 2020/05/17 13:11
I love this app and it has helped transform my business by making social posts easy to do on the go. It is intuitive to use and has lots of good features and fonts. I love that you can save projects and be able to come back to formats after I’m done with files. The way to work with layers to fix things afterward is so nice. The only thing I wish is that it had lock-to grids so I can always center my fonts. Please add this to an update! It’s difficult to center different layers of texts to all be properly aligned. Would you be able to add this feature? Thank you. Five stars regardless. Highly recommend to anyone, even just for fun.
Such a good tool and wayyy too underated
by meimei9876 on 2020/05/18 02:07
In my opinion, this app is extremely good. Especially for editing videos etc. I use this and Vont to edit some of my videos. The only reason that some people don’t like this app is because they dont know how to use it. They think there is only a few fonts that you can use but that’s not true because you can go on free websites to download cute aesthetic fonts onto the app. Which to me, is extremely handy. Whats really good about this app is that, theres no limit to how much words you can put onto your pictures. And theres many ways you can decorate and customize your sentence and words.
Highly Efficient Creative Tool
by K. Warrior on 2020/10/06 03:30
To be fair, perhaps there’s dozens of apps to write over pictures that are decent, but this one has offered the most versatility & user friendly experience, short of Photoshop on my desktop or laptop (I’m a graphic designer). I use this just to make quick quotes over photos to promote my podcast IG page and its interface makes it easy, w/ plenty of style choices, filled with more than enough fonts, and able to darken or mask photos to make text stand out (on iPhone). Perfect tool. I don’t write reviews often, but must give credit where it’s due. Great job on creative efficiency for FREE.
This app is a lifesaver
by knnthlw on 2019/10/30 02:16
What I like about this app is how easy it is to design all kinds of ideas. I’ve quickly created mock up ideas of book cover pages, ebook covers, encouraging phrases with warm background colors, telling stories with emojis, creating funny memes, and a whole lot more. With saying all that, it would be nice to load an image or screenshot into Phonto from Photos app, or right after taking a screenshot. Currently, after saving the photo or screenshot, I have to open the Phonto app to load the photo or screenshot. Other than that, this app is irreplaceable!
Video ads
by trammmq on 2020/08/16 23:48
Good app but it’s irritating and I dread having to use it when I’m trying to edit photos while listening to music. An ad pops up after EVERY. SINGLE. Picture that I edit and it’s almost always a video ad which turns my music off. I understand the app needs ads and don’t have a problem with that but it’s so annoying having to constantly turn my music back on after an ad turns it off. It’s especially annoying when it doesn’t take me that long to edit a photo (like when I’m just adding a watermark to a picture. That usually takes like fifteen seconds at the most to do before I can move on to editing the next picture. Which means I’m having to restart the app and ten my music back on basically every fifteen seconds) very annoying.
Best App on my phone
by Torimadisyn on 2020/07/29 16:30
This app is so useful. Being an artist, I have trouble designing the layout of paintings with words on them. This app allows me to type out all the words that will be on the painting and arrange them in the way I want them. I also love the text options and the way you can customize the words. It's as simple as making the draft on my phone and emailing the finished product to my computer so that I can trace the words and transfer them to my painting. This app is a must have for artists. <3 *EDIT* I’ve always been supportive of this app but honestly I’m about to delete it. It won’t even save my projects anymore more than half the time. I’m seriously annoyed and looking for a different app.
Storing projects
by casaontherez on 2019/08/06 13:33
I love Phonto and recommended it to people all the time. It’s simple to use. I appreciate being able to put a border on fonts to make them more readable. I’ve bought a few of the add ons and they were worth it. I just discovered a few cool tricks like curving text. The only frustrating thing is that I can’t save my projects (or if I can, it’s not clear how). I have combed through the app trying to figure this out. I’d like to be able to revisit projects or make minor changes sometimes without having to recreate the whole thing.
Best of its kind!!
by Must rhyme on 2019/10/18 23:21
This is the one you're looking for! Want to simply add text to your images, have all the known fonts available, put multiple fonts in a variety of styles on one image and do it all completely free? I mean, for real free?? Then, like I said, this is the one you want!! One quick add when you go to save your work. I tried a bunch of different ones before I ran across this excellent app. Took me a couple of times before I learned all of the ways to use all the different features, but don't worry, you'll figure it it out.
My Most Used App
by Babestaaaaaaaa on 2019/06/12 01:33
Phonto does what it needs to do as an app and more! I use Phonto for all of my insta editing that I need to do and it’s super simple and easy to use. It allows you to choose from a variety of fonts and also gives you the option to download preferred fonts from the web. You can layer pictures on top of one another and scale them in creative ways. There aren’t a lot of apps out there that do what they do and do it well. Phonto always comes in handy when I need it and allows me to be innovative with all my posts! Love this app!!!
I love this app, however, there is a bug I need help with
by Good game but lots of bugs. on 2019/05/27 11:01
I love this app, it’s very useful to me when I need to edit photos on the fly. When I got a new iPhone XR however, anytime I try and add a photo I get stuck in the shape crop screen with no option to continue. I suspect the continue/select button is perhaps not able to fit on the screen since the screen size is different. If this could be addressed soon I would be very happy since I’m not able to fully use the app right now because of this bug. Thank you
This app is absolutely great!!! BUT.....
by Sgate631988 on 2019/10/03 21:04
I really enjoy using this app but i believe it could use some great updates. I would like to see a tool to crop the background by color. Since i have to go use another app then come back to finish editing my project. Also another issue i run with this is when i download a image (png file) sometimes it adds a white background when it doesn’t suppose to. Other than this issues, this app is great and it’s free!! Thank you guys , i hope you guys look into this feedback.
Been using for YEARS and it's so simple and great
by poisonivey666 on 2020/10/19 07:35
If you need to work up ads quickly and professionally this is the app for you it's super simple (a kid could use it)and the end product always looks professional. Can we talk about the list of fonts omg there is soooooo many. It doesn't matter if you're making a meme or drafting up a fancy advertisement this app is awesome and free! I've been using it for at least 3 years now prob longer without any issues or problems at all! I never write reviews but this app deserves one.
Amazing, but one suggestion...
by Tabylor B on 2020/06/26 05:12
This app is amazing for adding text to pics. I have tried a bunch of others, and Phonto is the easiest to use with the most options, styles and fonts. I especially love that you can add your own fonts. You don’t have to pay and the app doesn’t leave a watermark! The only thing I wish this app had is some kind of guide lines or “snap” tool that lets you center a text box. This is the only thing I would change, and if this feature was added it would be perfect!
IM DONE
by tghdjdjdjdj on 2019/06/15 03:33
Okay so they say in the new update that they have “fixed the bugs” I was like “Finally!” so I go into the Phonto app and the app crashes 2 times! Not only that but it deletes everything I do! I’m thinking about deleting the app because this has honestly got on my nerves. Don’t download this app because it will just cause your iPhone to glitch IM WARNING YOU don’t download it! After I downloaded this app my iPhone had unexpected glitches that they hadn’t had before....and then I download this! I hope the creators or developers see this!
Good
by EclipseSunandMoon on 2019/08/11 14:09
I like you can use many different fonts, but I want to download some more good ones to use but I have to go on a website that’s restricted for me. So, I can’t go on the website to download the fonts. I would really like if you could add the fonts you can download to the fonts that are available, because it’s really frustrating because I tried to find a font someone used on their video that I liked, but then I found out you had to download it :( (P.S the fonts available are also pretty good)
So useful!
by Maddddiiiiieeee on 2019/11/25 00:33
This handy app has helped me with so much! Not only simply adding a plain text, but there’s so many other things. Thousands of designs to choose from whether it’s the style, the font, or both. Also it allows you to add on pictures and items to the workplace which makes it even more useful. I used to make edits on Instagram, and this was my go-to place. I still use it quite often for wallpapers, family edits, and much more. Definitely recommend getting this, so much for free!
The perfect tool for an IG writing account
by BMXdork on 2020/10/29 22:31
I use Phonto exclusively for my Instagram writing account. I use it for my cover slides, and use a black background with the charter roman font in white for my actual pieces. I can format a ten slide post in about five minutes on Phonto. And I get compliments on my layout all the time. The free version was decent, but the couple bucks you pay for no ads is worth it’s weight in gold, and all the other features are super cheap and most definitely worth the one or two dollar price. Stellar app
Best App available!
by jweirdkid on 2019/11/10 18:47
Ive been using Phonto for years. Its the best app to create quick text over images and crop photos to square. Also has the ability to download fonts from the web and use them within the app. My only complaint and hope they can fix it, is with the new Dark Mode if you choose black background its a little hard to see whats part of the picture and whats the app background. Im sure its a simple fix and developers will get it fixed asap.
So Quick & Easy!
by TheRealTeaSlimeShop on 2020/03/09 04:46
Trust me! This is one of the best quality editing pics, or even posters out there! It’s extra curricular with tsk many fonts, colors & cool editing. It’s so quick and easy and not super picky and hard or time consuming! It’s almost fun to do and I just love it so much! I never write reviews for apps ever!, but I decided to with this app since it is so fabulous & Is up port it greatly, too much actually? I don’t think so, because this app, you can NEVER support too much because of its greatness! ❤️❤️❤️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️👍👍👍🌈🌈🌈🌈
It’s a great app, just needs something...
by aJiSsTiLlChIlL on 2019/09/04 02:26
Phonto is such a great app! You can make so many things such as transparent backgrounds, logos, decals for Roblox, etc. but this one thing bothers me a lot, ads. Every time you save the photo, an ad pops up. It’s very annoying and you have to pay to get rid of the ads, some people don’t have that type of money and have to spend there time watching ads or clicking off of them. Maybe every time you save 10 photos there’s an ad or have no ads at all, again Phonto is a great app! I really like it, it’s just the ads man.
Annoying Glitches
by lsc2_ on 2019/10/06 20:13
There are so many annoying glitches with this app, but the most recent and more prominent one is the fact that if I try to add a png it just has a white background. Even if I make it a png and removes the background in third-party apps, it still has the white background. This completely ruins everything, I usually only ever use this for thumbnails on videos so not having the option to add pngs seemingly at random is stupid. There are many other issues with crashing and such. Overall it's an great app but I probably won't be using it anymore, and the glitches are why.
PNG..
by FJABoston on 2020/10/07 16:35
I love using this app because I can add things to pictures and create my own anything but since the latest software update for Apple I’ve noticed that my phone shows it as a png but the app adds a white background when I go to add image. The only other time I’ve ever had this problem was during the last major software update from Apple last year. Can’t wait for your new update to fix this issue. Thank you. yes all of my apps are up-to-date.
Won’t Let Me Upload Photos Anymore
by huhhhejsbsjj on 2019/05/27 13:36
So I absolutely love this app, and it’s a key component in my Instagram posts. Yesterday, it stopped letting me upload photos to overlay text onto. After choosing which photo, it goes to the filters screen, then it won’t let me advance to the actual photo editing portion. There’s just no button or anything to advance forward. I’ve deleted and redownloaded the app; and have tried everything I could think of, and it just isn’t allowing it. Would really appreciate this being fixed because no other app has the features or simplicity of this one.
Absolutely Amazing
by Chckrdstarfire7145825 on 2020/02/12 17:00
I don’t typically write reviews about an app unless I’m upset about the quality of one. However this app and its developers deserve the positive affirmation! This app is excellently executed and has all the features one needs to make amazing graphics and construct professional quality posts. The list of available fonts is endless and the ability to add your own favorites with such ease makes this app extremely versatile and as always user friendly.
AMAZING
by Goats are the best 🐐 on 2020/06/05 01:18
I love phonto. It’s 100% free (which is shocking for an editing app) and such great quality. Nothing in this app costs money, and there are NO ADS!!! There’s so much to explore with font colors and patterns that the app is perfect for font lovers everywhere. Although it doesn’t save projects which seems to be the main compliant, making sure that you download to camera roll before closing the app for an extended period of time alleviates this issue. Overall I love it and it’s a must-have for me.
So amazing! Can’t say nothing :)
by melissaprewe on 2019/06/14 02:20
This app is just the perfect app for me! I really love this app, and helps me a lot! I used it for my thumbnails and also to write in videos but I wish there was like more decorations available and also I would like something that you can choose a theme of your thumbnail or etc. I mean like if you want horror and you click that it gives you all horror things and if you want romantic or funny it could be same! But besides that I surely love this app :D
The best photo editing app EVER!
by [11insert nickname11] on 2019/08/04 17:37
i love phonto, you can easily add text and words to a picture and you can also add pictures to a photo and it’s overall amazing! 🤩 also this app is super helpful for a lot of things and plus it has NO watermark! ✨ that is amazing! but the one thing i don’t like about this amazing app is that when i save the photo, the text and the pictures i added come out all blurry, but that’s why i screen shot my final result! Overall AMAZING app!
Great, but needs some work.
by Khazoooey on 2019/05/31 02:14
This is an awesome app with lots of excellent features. A few improvements that I think will help make this app better is if it could save templates or previously worked on projects. The other minor but important thing that seemed to have been overlooked was the ability to duplicate objects. Currently that feature doesn’t seem to exist. Also, it would be incredibly helpful if there was an undo button of some sort. If I have missed these features somewhere, please let me know!
Saving projects...
by W13th on 2020/01/03 04:39
Makes an already perfect app even better. Phonto user since day 1 & since day 1, it's been my favorite app. I mean that. Every new device I get it's always my 1st redownload. @ it for hours a day bc it just does so much, so well. Perfect on it's own or in addition to other editors. Whether u like photo editing just a little or love it a whole lot, Phonto & Fontasy are must-haves. Super highly recommend both to any & everyone. Dead &/or alive. Get this app, ASAP!!
Fast and easy to use

I have been using the free version of Phonto. I have used it for well over a year. Aside from spellcheck feature not being available, the look and feel of the infographics and Memes is exceptional. For those who are skeptical, visit at serving2success on Instagram. Every single quote and infographic on this profile has been done with Phonto. The versatility of this app really makes it a five star app, so I’m giving it five stars.
Awesome and useful!

This app has a lot of really attractive fonts and its simple to use. I'm an illustrator and this app has made my life a lot easier when working on storyboards. I just snap a picture of my work, type in my text, and I can move it easily to see where it'll work best in my final product. Also fun for adding in text to snapshots. BUT- despite having purchased this app, I’m still bombarded with commercials. What gives??
Amazing but is missing a few things..

I love this app for running my sports page! However, I think there’s a few thing that you guys can fix, one is adding more shapes, such as parallelograms. Another is Text being able to go under shapes, I can’t get it to go under it and try to reduce the alpha on the shape to make it look cool! That’s it, other than that, it’s an amazing app and would say it’s the best on mobile by far.
Why Three and Not Five Stars

Phonto is such an easy and simple app to use. Just pop a photo and add text. What makes it great is that it’s simple, nothing complicated like other apps. The app is basically your blank canvas. However, my only issue is the storing. I switch between my tablet and phone a lot while editing due to what I have in my hands at the moment. As a result, everything on my phone is not on my tablet. For instance, I downloaded a bunch of fonts on my phone, but those fonts will only be on my phone, not my tablet. In addition, it would be nice if Phonto saved designs (maybe through iCloud or their own storage system?) There have been many times where I wanted to redo a design but couldn't because it was weeks ago and I had already made other designs. If Phonto finds a way to allow cross device usage and storage, that would be definitely deserve a five star!
extremely useful!

I’ve been using this app for about 1 year and a half. It’s probably one of the best apps I’ve used to layout pictures for ig. Everything about it is amazing. It’s easy to import photos, download fonts and etc. Just like everything in existence, it has its problems. The main problem I have with this app is the fact it doesn’t have shadows / shading for photos. If they added shadowing for pictures Phonto would be the best photo editing app in my opinion.
Miss when the fonts used to have numbers :/

I love this app & the endless content you are able to make on it, however, I have used this app for a very long time and after the update the numbers for the fonts went away. For example, for a font, it does not tell you how much saturation or contrast there is anymore. That is the only problem I have with this app, otherwise, I love it :)
Freezes

So this app is really good for using fonts on your photos! But there’s just one thing about it that I don’t like, the freezing. Whenever I try to use my fonts on pictures it ends up freezing up. I checked and it isn’t my phone. It only happens with this app. Because of all the freezing, I have to leave the app but when I come back, all of my work is deleted. This makes me really unhappy and I want an update so that it stops freezing. After that, I will change this to a 5 star rating.
I. LOVE. THIS. APP.

Honestly I was not paid to write this and I certainly NEVER write reviews but I want to tell you guys it is amazing! I use it for thumbnails and watermarks and it doesn’t even put a watermark on your work! Everything is free and you don’t need to pay to get anything extra! It is quick and easy and BEAUTIFUL. If you are looking for an app to put text on your photos or to just find a cute font you NEED this app! It’s amazing! <3
Great app, could use improvements.

I love using Phonto for designing, but I would also love to see the option for a transparent theme. I use this app to design logos, and it would be much easier if there was a transparent theme option to make use of the png format and to avoid using third party apps to erase the background. Also, there should be grids and lines for text and objects to lock in to ensure everything is in the most precise position. Please consider this in your upcoming updates.
