I can’t live without this app it is magnificent you will enjoy it!!!!
The old apple app downloads
by Instagram @ajhphm on 2021/10/12 03:19
I like it when we were able to use the app for free or upgrade to the full version One time payment. Now it is all about the money money money & not everyone has money to be able to use the apps. Or doesn’t wanna spend money every week do use the app + monthly + Yearly. It would be very nice if we pay one time like we used to and affordable for everyone. LIKE THE OLD DAYS SO PLEASE MAKE THIS FUN FOR EVERYONE. & I remember when this app was free with advertisements on the bottom of the screen and I loved this app now not so much anymore. So I am not giving this review for the app any stars
Everything is wrong
by aryankian on 2021/10/07 16:44
Either saying “Something went wrong” or crashing and jump out of app
Great App, but crashes too much
by Mr.Nomeaux on 2021/10/02 10:49
Love the app but it keeps crashing.
I don’t like the changes
by PsalmSAHM on 2021/09/26 09:01
Harder to use. Seems I have to pay to save my file.
Unethical Practices
by Carl Ja on 2021/09/22 15:05
So I’ve used Font Candy for a few years and I’ve used the previous versions. I paid to have the font Candy logo off of my materials. The company has redesigned there format (not a problem) but now they won’t honor my previous purchase. They are suppose to restore purchases and they won’t. That’s bad business practices and I’m actually shock that Apple don’t know about this. If you pay for something it’s yours unless the app or service is no longer in existence. I’m not paying 1.99 a week for a service or item I should be able to restore. Restore purchase button is there for a reason guys. Smh. I will report to Apple!
They bricked it for early investors
by SamQuinnTen on 2021/09/20 12:57
I bought full access to FontCandy years ago. I work at an underfunded rural community college and the graphics helped me get the word out to students about math workshops or tutoring assistance. Since the update, restoring your purchase puts the app in perpetual crash mode. Works perfectly fine until you restore. It’s pretty awful to block access to something someone has paid for. I wouldn’t trust this company with my money again.
Purchased but after updated offering “trial”
by anotherlumberjax on 2021/09/13 16:18
After not having used the app for a while, I went to use it today and upon opening it offered me a “3 Day Free Trial.” I’ve already purchased the app. Why would I need a trial? In app I clicked “restore purchases” on the first screen and it crashed. Tried opening it again and it glitches and won’t open. Deleted it and reinstalled, same issue. Not worth paying for if it constantly crashes or won’t even open.
Crashes
by Shelyshells on 2021/09/12 20:46
I use to love this app, I even bought features used it all the time now it crashes won’t even open
Horrible
by ExplsveTACOZ on 2021/09/09 00:12
The new app is horrible. Not user friendly at all.
Not happy with this version
by STONEMADE1of6 on 2021/09/04 23:54
This app might be an upgrade but not better than the previous version of FontCandy in many ways.
Crash🤯
by rtg707 on 2021/08/30 02:03
Coo app if it didn’t crash all the time 😤
Completely difficult
by msmkat on 2021/08/29 22:22
Experienced designer yet can’t can not put text on photo.
That’s one way to not get subscriptions…
by tatmom03 on 2021/08/29 16:31
I had a lifetime subscription to this. Since the new update, “Restore Purchases” crashes the app. So no, I won’t re-subscribe to something I owned in order to try it out.
App crashes when i click "artwork"
by jos3ni on 2021/08/27 16:22
I bought the membership so id expect the app to work great but every time i click on artwork the app closes. Also when i try to delete templates it doesnt allow me to delete them. Fix this soon please!
Shadow
by Peanut4852 on 2021/08/26 15:05
Add outline feature or undo shadow feature - it was fire before
Please help!
by Stratajemma3 on 2021/08/25 23:10
I LOVED the photo editor that was sister to this app: Photo Candy. It was full of great shapes and patterns that were super fun to use and also an asset as an artist. Please bring it back! There’s nothing else like it in the App Store. Also GifX was amazing. Please bring photo candy back! I would gladly pay a subscription fee for it! Live your other apps as well!
Declined Functionality
by Mimi J7 on 2021/08/20 19:19
Not sure what happened with FontCandy since they started charging for it in Dec. The app often crashes & I have to delete it and reinstall. In doing so I loose all of my templates. I have to do this about twice a week!!! And the option to import a font isn't working either...! Maybe the designers thought that adding a sleeker interface would justify the new charges - but it doesn't if we loose functionality. Aug. 20: the app always crashes when I try to add artwork. I have to remove the app & reinstall to add artwork & in so doing - I loose all my templates. Functionality has declined since Font Candy started charging! Isn't the opposite supposed to happen?! Looking for another app - post haste!
Trash after update
by desertsnow555 on 2021/08/19 01:26
Used to love this app but after update it became total trash.
Update Ruined
by Jeremy Joeface on 2021/08/15 22:26
I used to enjoy this app. They updated it maybe a year ago? It's one of the worst updates ever. It's totally ruined the app. Find another photo editor. This one is pretty useless since the update. Extremely awkward and very difficult to do the most basic things.
When it works, it’s a fantastic app.
by I. Kang on 2021/08/12 16:51
5 stars if it didn’t crash so frequently. It always crashes when I go in to “add artwork” and it’s a bit aggravating considering I primarily use this app to add text to photos/edits. I literally have to uninstall and then reinstall, which gets wouldn’t be so bad if I didn’t have to keep re-downloading text fonts cause don’t don’t carry over to the reinstall. Even after you restore purchase. Important inconveniences that add up.
Saved images are blurry
by Ashley7103 on 2021/08/10 00:47
I just created something and upon saving, the image/words are very blurry.
Disappointed
by shhrzdBH on 2021/07/31 19:17
I loved this app, especially the option that I could have color and text on pictures without the picture being completely visible, and that’s gone. The update isn’t very good
A fun agile type app ruined
by Niner Rob on 2021/07/31 16:28
I downloaded the first versions of this app quite a few years ago and used it a lot. Finally, there was an app that allowed you to professionally adjust your type: letterspacing, line-spacing, and word-spacing (a very rare feature outside photoshop), and also the ability to set paragraphs of text in “justified” format. Like so many other type apps, there was no individual kerning, but there was an array of cool free fonts, and most critically, you could also load your own fonts. This made Font Candy a flexible, fun appto use when you just wanted to make a quick layout, without going into Photoshop. Sadly, that version is dead, replaced by this Instagrammy fangirl version. And on top of that a formerly free app is now on two dollars a week?! Are you kidding me? I would pay maybe, $25 a year. And if you could give me individual kerning, I’d pay maybe even $50 a year. But at the rate of two dollars a week, that’s an outrageous $104 a year. Get real. I’m all for developers getting paid so they can continue to provide and improve the app, but I’m afraid the developers of FontCandy have an unrealistic self appraisal of their app. It’s just not worth that price. I’ll just use Phonto-Pro, or fire up Photoshop.
It used to be better
by vader0154 on 2021/07/28 11:20
A lot of the new changes make this app function a whole lot less. It either needs to be fixed or I will find a new pic editor.
Won’t even open
by travis2234343 on 2021/07/28 03:14
I have an older gen iPad and used to use this app for my job all the time. Now it’s stuck on the opening screen and app won’t even load. Needs to be fixed. We need a new update!!
Changed to Subscription - dont bother
by TheWagnus on 2021/07/21 20:15
I had this app for a long time and loved it but one day it suddenly didnt work. I found out that they disabled the app I BOUGHT and are now doing a WEEKLY subscription to use it. No thanks. Also thanks for screwing me over.
Update is more complicated
by phihei on 2021/07/20 14:23
I used to enjoy this app, but with the most recent updates have made it more complicated. I wish there was a font candy lite version. I don't like the dark background either. I used to use it all the time but I don’t like it anymore.
Day one
by Mygirlsamazing on 2021/07/19 03:32
Just starting to use the app. So far looks like it will be a decent offering of options in fonts etc. We shall see....be back at week one Most recent update (July 2021 ish) Seems much harder to use. Options aren’t as easily accessible. Can’t find anywhere that allows you to change size of font other than pinching and expanding the text boxes, then you risk skewing them sideways etc. Seems messy now.
Paid for original app
by Ant Streets on 2021/07/19 00:59
I had the pro version of the other FontCandy app and this one is not the same. I can’t even access any of my artwork to add to any image without the app crashing.
Was great
by nedrow999 on 2021/07/18 23:49
Used app for years …loved it but recently was forced to reinstall as photos albums would not load as they previously did, after reinstallation Font Candy wanted to watermark my photos which hadn’t been the case for years, fonts were all shadowed and I prefer not to shadow but the watermark default was a deal breaker.
Not a fan of the upgrade
by Angel LaFaye on 2021/07/18 21:23
I’ve used and paid for FonCandy for year and always loved the ease of using this app. There was a recent update that I don’t like and all my fonts and images were lost. It’s NOT easy to navigate anymore and the features are hard to figure out. So disappointed
Can’t change font size. Too small to read. Useless.
by hakzhdhwkbx on 2021/07/16 21:02
YOU CAN’T CHANGE FONT SIZE. Makes app useless. It would be really cool app if you could. Hope they change this.
Great app before upgrade…
by Cisco's on 2021/07/16 13:44
…now I can’t size the font. So I am stock with a fixed size and 99% won’t work with my layouts.
Updated, still crashing
by greatnewpodcast on 2021/07/14 02:04
I recently updated the app to latest version, when I selected “restore purchase” it would crash. When going back into the app, it crashes while in loading screen. I removed and reinstalled, it continued to do the same thing. Use to love the app and want to love it again. Help!
Why?!
by Doughboy6357 on 2021/07/12 06:14
This was my go to app now it’s ad filled you have to pay to use piece of $h!t
Bug
by Baskin n Robbin jeans on 2021/07/07 22:19
I’m experiencing a force close every time I try to add artwork.
Whyyyyy
by Lwizzle on 2021/07/04 15:20
I used this app for years, I can’t believe you’re now charging weekly to remove a stupid water mark! Greedy b*stards! Definitely lost a loyal user! If anyone want a better app for FREE, go check out “Phonto” they’re way better and you don’t have to pay!
Update is Terrible!
by rchjsfkk on 2021/07/01 13:29
I’ve used this app for years and loved it until the recent update. It is terrible! It has made it so much more difficult to use. Not worth the trouble to even deal with now. So disappointed.
New app makes everything difficult.
by Junk Banter on 2021/06/28 22:27
I’ve been a paying customer for over 4 years, using the app to add quick text to my Instagram posts. The new re-design makes simple things like re-sizing, re-positioning, and re-coloring text way more difficult than it should be. All I try to do is access a previous template and move the text somewhere near bottom of the image. This is nearly impossible because the “confirm” button is lower than the actual text, and disappears when you get to the bottom edge. I actively hate using this app now where it used to be a life-saver.
New new new
by Angry Bosslady on 2021/06/27 05:49
I hate what the app has become. I purchased the extras for the original app a few years ago and love it. Once I updated the phone the new app won’t recognize my whole app purchase in favor for weekly payments. 😡 Now, they have compartmentalized everything to the point where it’s more confusing, takes longer and wants you to purchase more. I’m done with you FontCandy.
BAD UPDATE
by DENE2216 on 2021/06/25 20:49
Now when I add text to my photos there is no place to make the text smaller or different colors. I hate this new update, why make it so confusing. After 45 mins of trying to make text smaller, I quit. You are losing a customer.....

Can I use the fonts on this app for my cover art for My song ?
Disappointed
by precious_lt on 2021/06/24 01:40
I have used this app for several years and absolutely loved it but it seems like now every time I try to use it either freezes or it just crashes. I saw where’re it said the last update fixed that issue but I’m still having it. I have even tried deleting the app and reloading it. I actually pay for this app so I would like for it to work. Please tell me what I can do to fix these issues.
Update made app worse!
by TheQ1970 on 2021/06/23 15:15
Since the update….all my creations are blurry/fuzzy….what the heck am I paying for??
It’s become poor
by gsiebdjfoab on 2021/06/22 17:56
This used to be a great app. I’ve had it for years but it’s become unusable. I haven’t been able to search photos within the app for more than a year. I’ve updated and uninstalled. It now just crashes upon launching. I’m done.
Disappointing update.
by Tinadino3677 on 2021/06/22 15:13
6/22 UPDATE: they still won’t restore your purchases. I paid to remove the watermark years ago. App still crashed and says “nothing to restore” get the Add Text app. It works the way this app used to, NO WATERMARK. You can pay to unlock more fonts and a lot of the free fonts are the same as this app. Very disappointing the direction this app has gone. This was a great app until the new update. The app was fine until I tried to restore my purchases. Ever since then it crashes upon opening. I even deleted it and reinstalled several times. It won’t let me restore purchases and now won’t open. I will change my rating and update if a new update comes out correcting these problems. 5/20 UPDATE: there was an update that fixed a “bug” but my app still crashes. Anyone know of another good app they can suggest?!
Used to be great
by screamqueendavid on 2021/06/22 04:48

Before the update it was awesome

Hate this
by Brianbusy on 2021/06/21 15:36
I’ve had this for years and I despise this new version..completely ridiculous and now I’m taking it off my phone for good. Bye font catastrophe 👋🏻
Font + no updates???
by Apes - Santa Monica Healing on 2021/06/20 18:40
Please update the + app - it won't work for iPhone x anymore? Been using this for years as my main editor, please help!!
It’s no longer working! Frozen screen
by [bdup] on 2021/06/20 15:14
App creators plz fix this issue. I used to love this app. Thanks
New version is not it…
by Greg Terrace on 2021/06/20 04:55
Convoluted, not straight forward. The old format was amazing, I’m not sure why it needed to change. I used this app for on the go marketing for social media… not I’m not longer using it.
What???? DON’T GET THIS
by Lady black heart on 2021/06/18 07:42
UPDATE TRIED REINSTALLING AND HITTING RESTORE PURCHASES AND IT CRASHES. DELETING. I bought the paid version of this app ages ago. Now I have to pay more...again?! Messed up really. This WAS my favorite app. Doesn’t matter any how as now it crashes and won’t work. Sad. I use it almost everyday. 5/26/21
Nope! Why ruin a good thing
by Opinion 18 on 2021/06/18 06:50
Used this for years and paid for it before and not I have to subscribe weekly. F that! Deleting and looking at others.
App is GARBAGE! STAY AWAY
by Tacos AND Burgers on 2021/06/17 20:03
Like EVERY other company or app out there of course, they went for an ENTIRELY DIFFERENT DESIGN change which ultimately made the app unusable. My fingers are TOO BUG TO EDIT WITH THIS NEE UPDATE!!! I’ve been using this 3-4 years. It was fine. The new update made it 20x more confusing to edit. Why can’t you guys ever leave something be? What big brain decided to redesign the app? Good job cause now It’s uninstalled. Ridiculous
Won’t load
by Milhouse00 on 2021/06/16 02:56
App no longer works, crashes instantly
Juice Not Worth The Squeeze
by Treybaghdad on 2021/06/15 02:57
The app started out free and I even paid for the adds to be removed. Now, here they have started charging everyone a subscription FOR FONTS. You just lost a bunch of us. Other apps have popped onto the scene and offers more for less.
Long time user now deleted
by Firgs on 2021/06/14 18:41
I used this app for 6 years to help me run my small business. I loved it. Now I am suddenly being forced into a weekly subscription, an overly complicated UI, and all of my uploads are gone?! I feel so burned! I’m out!
The complicated use
by jecray on 2021/06/14 12:25
I throughly enjoyed the old version. It was simpler to use. This new version makes it tough to erase or remove the templates. I don’t like auto save templates. When you copy and paste the text comes in a straight horizontal line versus stacking like paragraph form… it’s just the app creators tried to be too fancy. Simple is always better!
Used to love this app
by The Tunawaffle on 2021/06/11 20:34
This was my go to, I used it all the time for work. Now after updating it won’t open the app for more than 2 seconds before it crashes. Also when the update came that completely changed how the app looks and works I lost all of my imported fonts I had collected. So disappointed, bring the older version back the new is hard to use and doesn’t work
Update is awful
by Gymnastics star3 on 2021/06/10 22:16
The new update is horrible. Pictures now save blurry and they don’t save automatically to an album like they used to. App is also not as user friendly
🤯
by AZN_HI.AN_YT_GI on 2021/06/09 04:56
It’s that time…..bye Felicia…..the time together was fun. Thanks, but No Thanks to the update of the app. It’s quite frustrating with the major over haul. 😣😖😫😩
Used to be good.
by catlove21 on 2021/06/08 21:59
This app changed and I don’t like it.
Want the old version
by Lbrenn on 2021/06/06 03:05
Horrible now! And the upgrade dumped all my templates, about three years of work all gone! Thanks for nothing.
Update Overhaul Moneygrab
by Jelyrolsmif on 2021/06/05 14:35
Wonderful app. However, the company made an unannounced decision to ignore the investment of their in-app purchase users to go for a different business model. If I can get burned by this developer without warning once, I will not let it happen twice.
Disappointed!
by Sammysgranny on 2021/06/04 15:34
I’ve enjoyed using the app for several years, but with the recent update I would have to pay to use the “image showing through text” feature, which has always been a favorite in this app. Sad.
Another ruined app

Don’t purchase or use app
by Help addict user on 2021/06/01 12:38
Someone that hates humans “upgraded” the app and it ruined everything. Paid hundreds for years only to have to throw this all away.
Crashes and lags
by Seriously guys...fix it. on 2021/05/29 18:36
Latest version on ip max 11 pro crashes, lags, is pretty much unusable. Can’t even add simple text to a photo and have it keep its normal dimensions. Please fix. This app used to be one of my go tos

Crap
App Crashing- Can’t Adjust Font Size
by Jana516 on 2021/05/27 14:10
I’m working on a year-long project, and this most recent update is infuriating. If I can’t adjust the font size, I’ll have to start my work all over again. It’s exhausting to even think about all the time I’ll have to reinvest with another app.
LAME
by Ulibarri5280 on 2021/05/27 13:43
This WAS my favorite app UNTIL this stupid pointless update!!! It was fine the way it was! Off to find a new font app! Please fire who ever was in charge of this revamp!
I used to like this app

Won’t restore past purchase
by JasonR on 2021/05/26 17:31
I paid for the pro version of the past version of this app. I went to open the app and got a message that the app couldn’t work any more. I downloaded the new version and when I tried to restore my purchase, I got a message that there wasn’t a purchase to restore. Paying $2/week seems like a lot of money ff what I need this app for.
They ruined it
by scoop peabodu on 2021/05/26 15:22
App use to be very easy and functional, upgrade is total crap. How do make a interface less intuitive I’ll never know. Moving fonts around is impossible, font shadows are horrible and render font unreadable. Sizing is next to impossible and grabs background instead of font 90% of the time ... color fills are muted, just a total crap upgrade. I’ve been using this app for 4+ years and I’m never coming back to it.. having watermarks now after paying to have them removed before the upgrade ... if I could give it negative stars I would. Do not download
They canceled FontCandy+ and now they want me to pay for pro features again
by Zac9876 on 2021/05/26 12:38
I had paid for the old pro version a couple years ago, which they pulled off the App Store. I go to use this one, and they want me to pay to use features I had already paid for once. But because this isn’t the + version of the app, it won’t let me restore any purchases. Not going to pay twice.
Hate the latest update
by allngr11 on 2021/05/26 00:36
This app used to be my absolute favorite. I use it in all my marketing. It was so easy to use and intuitive. The latest update erased all my downloaded fonts and is so hard to figure out! The default outline text color is ugly and the new drop shadows are so hard to get right on a phone. The menus are a mess and it’s miserable. If you’re going to change your app, change it a little at a time so it’s easier to get used to the new thing. Don’t change EVERYTHING so it’s impossible to use!!!
Poor Customer Service
by iMINIr53 on 2021/05/25 19:14
I used this app for 7 years. Everyday! and paid weekly to have Pro. During the last update I lost 7 years worth of my work. I tried to restore and nothing. I emailed customer support and they will not respond. TERRIBLE company. I found another app to use. Poor quality and total waste of money! I wish I could get ever dime back I spent on this.
Horrible update
by Pilates Devotee on 2021/05/25 10:15
Until the recent update, I happily paid for this app and used it on a daily basis for my business. Now with the new update, all my templates are gone and I have to do all the work from the past year all over again. I’m so mad that I’m writing my first review ever about an app. I contacted support and they are not replying about my problem. What was once my favorite app is now getting deleted.
Used to be great
by KimP2222 on 2021/05/24 23:48
Loved the app for years. I used it regularly and paid for the paid version. Now it’s regularly crashing and not even usable
Updated app keeps crashing
by mercedessays on 2021/05/24 16:34
Whoever decided on updating this app needs to be fired. It keeps crashing, won’t restore my purchases, and who is going to pay $1.99 a week?! Trash. And unfortunate since I have used this app for years.
Constant crashing
by vduke928 on 2021/05/24 11:38
Used to love this app and would use it all the time. But I am now having to go to another app as I can’t even get this one to open since the last update.
Please please please help
by Kyme03 on 2021/05/24 07:08
PLEASE CHANGE THE APP BACK!!! The app was $10 when I first got it (everything unlocked). I was DEVASTATED when it was changed to $1.99 a WEEK! Not month but WEEK! The sad thing is that I loved it so much that I paid $1.99 a week for over two years. Ya I know...I did that. Now it’s all changed and I want to scream! It’s disgusting!!! Change it back please please please! I will freaking keep paying the $1.99 a week if it goes back to the way it used to be!

Crashes
by Tinaw2448 on 2021/05/23 14:57
Ever since the new update on your app, I can’t even use it for one second before it crashes and closes.
Update
by iiSess on 2021/05/23 01:18
Whoever did this update needs a serious self evaluation. This app went from beautifully simplistic to overly complicated. I will be uninstalling which is a shame cause I have used this for so long. Bring the old style back.
Won’t stop crashing
by Jus teen on 2021/05/23 00:36
Since the latest update this App won’t even open for longer than 3 seconds before it crashes. So sad because I have used it for years and loved it.
Terrible updated, ruined the app.
by MBaceiredo on 2021/05/22 20:41
I used to PAY for this app, it was my favorite app to use for my business and now it’s ruined, my pictures don’t turn out the way they used to before. Please change it back, this is so upsetting, I have to redo all of my work now because the font looks blurry now when it’s small.
No longer opens
by Tina(NWL) on 2021/05/22 02:48
Hi Team Font Candy, I love the app, I’m a longtime paid user, but the new update has rendered it unusable. The app crashes on the title screen. Hope a fix comes really soon.
Update not an upgrade.
by Heir Dryer on 2021/05/21 19:04
Looks like the app updated within the past day or so, it went from an easy, quick to find layout, to everything in different spots, and now i can’t delete the templates i don’t want anymore. I don’t need a “FLASHY NEW LAYOUT” i need an app that is consistent and manageable. Also. Drop the 5 year old rainbow home screen.
Not impressed
by xoelenaox on 2021/05/21 07:40
I used this app a lot but since the new update its not even wanting to load all the way i keep getting Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes. If the problem persists, contact our support.
They Broke the app
by rgreen1234 on 2021/05/20 22:41
I have used and paid for font candy for years, this new update not only wiped out years of saved templates but made the app unusable, after too much use and auto saving templates it completely crashed. Won’t open. Won’t work. Also the ability to maneuver clipart is clunky and a difficult to expand, the previous versions were seamless. The BIGGEST issue is they took away color options and put in a terrible color bar with no way to match colors as there is no number codes or individual color options. They made it black, sleek looking and portrait mode, designing in portrait is terrible. I mean terrible, like they broke the easiest most diverse app on IOS. I’ve paid them hundreds to lose everything and customer support told me “oh well”. Don’t use this app, if you pay for it stop your subscription, they basically threw out 2 years of work I PAID to have saved and gave me a broken app in return.
What happened to other Font Candy?
by Marthallen1 on 2021/05/20 17:40
I loved the font Candy that was on here just a month or so ago. It’s now gone! I used it to write on the cards I made & added captions to my photos. Please bring that one back. I used it all the time
Too expensive
by Matt.scoggins on 2021/05/20 14:48
This was a sub par free app. Now they are charging 1.99/WEEK!? NOT WORTH IT. Give us a reasonable YEARLY rate and I would consider it. I’ve used the free one for years but this price hike is ridiculous. Bye bye
$1.99 a week?!
by ValerieJeannis on 2021/05/20 14:05
I purchased font Candy+ Now it’s discontinued And as an alternative not only can my previous purchase not be restored but there is a WEEKLY cost. I understand generating income. It’s just unfortunate that this was the route decided on. This really was one of the best, not so much anymore.
Crashing! Hit a Wall! I need a miracle!
by Co0ki on 2021/05/20 03:53
App won’t even load due to new download. Super disappointed!
All my templates wiped out by the new update
by ShaynaEdwards92 on 2021/05/20 03:01
I am so upset, they changed the entire interface and now all my saved content on the app is completely gone. What a waste, I was so happy paying for the app too until this. Ridiculous.
Great app but won't stop crashing.
by Princess Flying Unicorn on 2018/02/05 04:21
I don't know if it's just my device or if it's the app itself. I've been using this app a lot for editing photos and such and now it randomly crashes every time I use it. Sometimes it'll crash immediately; other times it lets me use it for a minute and then it crashes and erases all my hard work. It really upsets me that now I have to stop using this app due to all the crashing. I'm giving 4 stars because I've been using this app for around a year, and in that year it was great! Also, my device is generally not very good. So I wouldn't be surprised if it was just my device not being able to run this app, but at the same time I'm not sure so 4 stars for now. TL;DR This app is great and I've been using it for a year but it keeps crashing and I'm not sure if it's the app or my tablet so I give it 4 stars.
A fun agile type app ruined
by Niner Rob on 2021/07/31 16:28
I downloaded the first versions of this app quite a few years ago and used it a lot. Finally, there was an app that allowed you to professionally adjust your type: letterspacing, line-spacing, and word-spacing (a very rare feature outside photoshop), and also the ability to set paragraphs of text in “justified” format. Like so many other type apps, there was no individual kerning, but there was an array of cool free fonts, and most critically, you could also load your own fonts. This made Font Candy a flexible, fun appto use when you just wanted to make a quick layout, without going into Photoshop. Sadly, that version is dead, replaced by this Instagrammy fangirl version. And on top of that a formerly free app is now on two dollars a week?! Are you kidding me? I would pay maybe, $25 a year. And if you could give me individual kerning, I’d pay maybe even $50 a year. But at the rate of two dollars a week, that’s an outrageous $104 a year. Get real. I’m all for developers getting paid so they can continue to provide and improve the app, but I’m afraid the developers of FontCandy have an unrealistic self appraisal of their app. It’s just not worth that price. I’ll just use Phonto-Pro, or fire up Photoshop.
This used to be the only app I used...
by Cleo Solaris on 2019/08/20 21:51
I had this app on my iPhone 6+ and due to me being rather forgetful about updating, I somehow managed to keep the version of the app where I didn’t have to fork over cash every week to keep the basic functions of the app active. When I upgraded to a new phone and installed the app, to my horror, EVERYTHING - the Blender, half the fonts I regularly used, all of the features I used this app for - are now locked behind the greediest pricing I have seen in photography apps. I can’t afford a weekly drain on my finances just to use an app that was on my phone a month ago. I am utterly disappointed in this developer, this was my favorite editing app. Used it on everything. Edit: To my utter dismay, my other favorite editing app, Fused, is also by Easy Tiger. I’m deleting all of their apps off my phone, even if they were to drop the price to $0.50/week, I’d refuse to give them money. These apps were free-use last year, and they literally took features away to place a pay-wall around them. Goodbye, Easy Tiger.
Love it for some reason it doesn’t work anymore!
by 12lulu34 on 2020/01/24 17:18
Been using this app for work but all of a sudden it doesn’t work anymore! When I put search it says I need internet connection, which I do, and it won’t work with data either (yes I checked my settings) so I uninstalled it and installed it again and now not only is the problem still the same but I can’t restore my purchases meaning the watermark is there and the fonts that I had everything disappeared and I can’t recover it! It’s very frustrating especially since I spent money on it.
Opened my world
by Beneficial App Seeker on 2018/07/14 05:20
I was recently asked to send photos to a company as part of my official product complaint. They asked me to put the reference number ON the photo. So, I went looking for an app that would help me. (I did not know my device had a markup feature!) Many required an iOS that I did not have, all seemed to subscription-based. But this one offered a 7 day free trial. So, I gave it a chance. It's nice! I won't be keeping my subscription because I don't need these services for my day-to-day life; but I could certainly see using this app if I were more active on social media. I'm glad I know it's out there, should things change. I found it user-friendly and inspiring. The options are plentiful. Just not for me, right now. Also, wish there were a free version.
Love This App!!!! But have some small suggestions
by EA2019 on 2018/01/19 17:27
I don’t know how much you all pay attention to these reviews but I have a few suggestions that, in my humble opinion, would perfect this app. 1. It would be awesome if the size feature allowed users to specify width and/or length adjustments. Sometimes I want to make text wider without making it longer and vice versa. 2. Being required to upload an image seems outdated. It would be cool if users could type text directly onto the transparent background. 3. There should definitely be a “return to previous work” option so that editing a previously saved image doesn’t mean starting completely from scratch. Other than those things, I love it!!!! It’s so great.
Fonts are neat. Some things need tweaking.
by r@zznJ@zz315 on 2018/01/21 19:07
So I like being able to add text to my photos to get the poster look. Having the ability to order magnets, t-shirts, & pillows is neat too! However, when my photo is uploaded to those product templates it always cuts off the majority of my text and/or photo. The cropping isn't shrinkable but only zoomable. It would also be handy to have the sizes of 4x6, 5x6, and 8x10 available so that after utilizing the text features a person could print or order those size photos without having to use another application, like Snapfish. Also when adding the text in it lets you increase size and shrink text size but it would be better if you could set the perimeters so there are margins and the text doesn't run off the page when it is increased in size.
Great but...
by crimsonfox47 on 2019/10/07 02:38
I love what I can do with this app when in the midst of using it, but I have two main gripes 1) you can’t save progress so you essentially can either only work on one thing at a time or redo something from the beginning if you want to go back and make a small change, but the bigger issue is 2) for whatever reason, it almost always remains frozen for several minutes when I first open it; if I leave the app for long enough then come back, it does the same before I can start using it. Maybe something’s going on with my iPad Pro 10.5 (since I got it a year ago but it seems to have gotten worse) but it did the same thing on my iPad Mini 4 that I had before. I can’t reliably open app and get straight to work right where I left off. It’d be AMAZING if it wasn’t for these two things.
Love it
by lilwickedwitch2000 on 2019/03/14 05:53
Easy to use. Something special happened to me with in the last 48 hours. And I decided to make an account that is an anonymous where no one knows my name or who I am or where I’m from exactly. To give me a chance to explain everything. I am in no way trying to say I am funded by this app. But I am definitely going to use it for any photo editing that I need and would love for them to sponsor me one day IF they choose. They are not obligated to. And I love this app very helpful and maybe one day I will hit the news once and become a hit for something great! But these are just Dream I realize that and am pretty “down to earth” so to speak. Will definitely recommend it to people.
Best App Out There But Tiger Apps is GREEDY.
by atreich on 2018/09/21 19:00
I paid for Font Candy + 2+ years ago. I have loved it dearly and have struggled to find another app that comes close when it comes to editing things the way I need them to be edited. However, Font Candy+ is being phased out (it no longer appears in the App Store, you cannot share it with others, and members of your Apple Family cannot download it either). Instead, they’ve introduced an outrageous WEEKLY subscription which is absolute ludicrous. But that’s also the only way to get rid of their logo in the app. Unless you’re willing to pay $50-$100 a year for an app (you can pay just a little more and get a higher quality editing app for your computer or phone), this app has become useless. As a longtime customer with multiple of the Easy Tiger Apps, I’m sad to say that I can no longer support them as they move in this direction.
Disappointing update.
by Tinadino3677 on 2021/06/22 15:13
6/22 UPDATE: they still won’t restore your purchases. I paid to remove the watermark years ago. App still crashed and says “nothing to restore” get the Add Text app. It works the way this app used to, NO WATERMARK. You can pay to unlock more fonts and a lot of the free fonts are the same as this app. Very disappointing the direction this app has gone. This was a great app until the new update. The app was fine until I tried to restore my purchases. Ever since then it crashes upon opening. I even deleted it and reinstalled several times. It won’t let me restore purchases and now won’t open. I will change my rating and update if a new update comes out correcting these problems. 5/20 UPDATE: there was an update that fixed a “bug” but my app still crashes. Anyone know of another good app they can suggest?!
What happened?!?!!!!!
by Please Visit JW.ORG on 2018/08/22 23:11
I bought font candy pro probably little less than 2 years ago. But for the past few months it’s been crashing acting stupid a little slow but I dealt with it. Now for the past few weeks it’s kind of become unusable! Which makes me very upset because I absolutely LOVE this app this is my favorite app to use for my photos. So I search the App Store for this app today and only the free one popped up my paid one is gone! So I paid for it’s gone and it’s unusable! The new app that is free for the pro version it wants me to pay $.99 every WEEK! I already paid for the pro version I should not have to pay for anything else again!! If you pay for something once you should not have to pay for it again!! This just frustrates me so much because Like I said I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS APP!! 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
Ruined a good app
by stretch002 on 2021/04/01 22:25
To be clear: I bought this app and paid full price for it. I’ve used it for years. This was a terrific little app until this update with “pro tools”. Now they want me to pay to remove a watermark despite the fact I do NOT use any of the new pro features and can no longer create the things I was creating before this update without the watermark. The developers have gotten greedy and completely ruined a perfectly functional app by demanding payment for unwanted and unused features. It’s like watermark ransomware for an app you have been using for years. You cannot use this app without the watermark showing up despite not wanting, needing or using ANY of the new “Pro features”. Definitely my final purchase with this developer.
EASY TIGER, PLEASE HELP ME RESOLVE MY ISSUE WITH YOUR APP
by Stshakedown on 2018/03/07 13:18
I import alot of fonts onto font candy, and there are alot of fonts I end up not liking, and everytime I delete a font, so if i delete multiple fonts, when i close the app/refresh the app, all the fonts i just deleted end up right back on the top of my font list, this is very irritating, the only way i can clear all the fonts (but then i would have to start over and re-download all the other fonts I DO want), is to delete the font candy app and re-install it, and i really dont want to have to keep doing that in order to make my font list look nice. Can someone please help me resolve this issue???? Thank you.
I would give this app zero starts if I could
by Who'scallinginSeattle on 2018/01/25 16:55
Read through EVERYTHING before you download an app. They make it appear to be free, but if you scroll WAY down to the bottom It says $1.99/per WEEK, yes you are reading That correctly $1.99 PER WEEK!! Then when I sent them an email to cancel and stop charging me, they tried to play dumb and say, “we don’t know what you are talking about, we couldn’t charge you like that even if we wanted to.” Really? Because you did and you have been! This is very shady business practices! I want all my money back! I cant stand people who do this kind of stuff to scam people out of money, until the consumer is actually on to them, and then they play games for another few weeks to get more money. That’s a total sham!
Great App For Simple Projects
by TheWayItIs! on 2018/10/27 02:38
I love having an app that allows me to make social media ads from my phone. I take my mock-up or picture, and I write in sale dates, discount codes etc. wish it were a bit more intuitive though. I haven’t found a way to edit a previously completed project. I don’t want to start over, I just want to change the date or replace the words Good Friday with the words Cyber Monday. I love the collection of fonts and color choices. I love how you can take text on a photo and animate it. It’s relatively easy to create professional looking ads.
Great app but...
by Jdeib on 2018/06/02 00:54
This is an overall great app! It is a really fun past time if your bored. And can serve as a advertisement starter. However I must complain about the prices. I know that your company has to make money to keep it going but $1 a week seems a bit much especially if you only use it at the most once a week. As a suggestion maybe lower it to the amount of times you use it charge an amount. But otherwise this is a really great app that has lots of features (if you upgrade to your subscription) I highly recommend!!!😃
The WORST APP EVER! DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!!
by Persona 2.0 on 2018/10/04 19:31
Two years ago I downloaded Font Candy+ for $1.99 and it was amazing, after the new IOS update the app became useless. Then I had to download it again because I need it for projects. It was easy to use and didn’t need much tutorial for getting a 🔥 image. Now they say I have to pay $1.99/week? That’s BS. That’s $50 a year! The most popular apps don’t even cost that much. Don’t download this app. Don’t waist your money or storage on this SCAM! They know that they had the best product and they’ve taken advantage of consumers. This business will fall into bankruptcy. I will tell everyone I know not to use this app or any app by Easy Tiger. You’re scamming people! Shame on Apple for allowing this. You’ve just lost a customer.
Please give the option to edit past projects
by GirrrlRae on 2019/05/27 13:50
I love this app! I have used it for probably 2 years as for promo & various projects. I pay for the extra features & appreciate the variety of fonts & other features! My ONLY complaint is not being able to edit my past projects. Sometimes I flub a name or date & I have NO way to fix it other than starting over which is such a bummer! If y’all could add that one feature it would be greatly appreciated.
Declined Functionality
by Mimi J7 on 2021/08/20 19:19
Not sure what happened with FontCandy since they started charging for it in Dec. The app often crashes & I have to delete it and reinstall. In doing so I loose all of my templates. I have to do this about twice a week!!! And the option to import a font isn't working either...! Maybe the designers thought that adding a sleeker interface would justify the new charges - but it doesn't if we loose functionality. Aug. 20: the app always crashes when I try to add artwork. I have to remove the app & reinstall to add artwork & in so doing - I loose all my templates. Functionality has declined since Font Candy started charging! Isn't the opposite supposed to happen?! Looking for another app - post haste!
It happened to me as well, Cleo!
by Palomino.Girl on 2020/03/28 02:51
Except it’s not just one app I left behind on my iPhone 6S Plus, there were more than a dozen that I’m no longer able to use on my iPhone XR. Btw, clicking Restore as the developer suggested didn’t help me one bit, not on any of the apps I once loved and used every day. This is more than an aggravation, in my opinion it’s a ripoff. Our fatal error was getting new iPhones. That’s not fair. Life is hard enough without this happening. For some reason app developers have become extremely greedy so I too said goodbye. No longer using this app every day, nor am I recommending it to everyone on Facebook. That was free advertising but we don’t get anything free. We get punished for getting new iPhones.
I used to love this app
by Artsybethy on 2019/05/20 15:08
I have been using Font Candy for years now and purchased the full version for several dollars when I first got it. The app then kept crashing and freezing so I recently went ahead and deleted and reinstalled this program. The good news was that it seemed to fix the glitching BUT now its wanting me to pay weekly for what I have already paid for when I originally purchased the app. I get subscription services when there is a lot of new content constantly but there is only a few new things that I can live without and now so many of the same options I was previously enjoying through my paid app is now available only in the “pro” subscription for $1.99 a week. This is ridiculous. If you want to make a subscription service then by all means you have the right to, but do so with new exciting content and don’t take away things from people who have already paid for the app and now tell them its not enough that you paid once, you need to pay weekly to have the same services.
Super laggy at times
by ThomasMCDMarvel on 2017/11/30 01:14
I love this app. It has been a real good tool for me to use. But oh my. I am about to throw my phone across the room. The app has been super laggy lately, crashing all the time, and it’s so annoying. It’s gotten to the point where I don’t even want to use the app. I go to it thinking “Ugh I don’t want the lag but I have to use the app. Dreading this.” Please fix this, to help I have an Iphone 7 that works with every app but this one, so it must be the app.
Crashing Galore
by StephMartin26 on 2018/11/27 04:58
This has been my go-to app since I started my blog and I even PURCHASED their other app for more fonts etc. because I loved it so much. I’m not usually one to write reviews on apps or even products but it has gotten to the point of aggravation with this app. I PAID for their app and still it crashes and stops working and I hadn’t had an update in a while. As a paying customer I expect better service, especially since I use this for my blog. If you can save the money, I would unless they’re going to fix the app. I initially checked on the reviews to see if others are having the same problem and they are. It isn’t just me! Please fix this app.
Honestly good
by krt00 on 2018/07/02 06:57
I don’t write reviews often. In fact, I never do. But I’ve been using font candy for a long time and I’m so impressed with what this free app can do. The only problem I have is that in the photos the App Store provides, there is a layering effect going on where the words can seem to go behind people, etc.- and as far as I know, this is unachievable on the app. :( but I imagine it’s very difficult, so I won’t hold it against them.
I love this app but......
by Breezita love on 2018/03/30 08:34
This is or was my favorite app ive had it for yrs i payed to have the watermark removed and unlock all features it was great and all of a sudden it started crashing so i thought maybe i need to update the app so i go to app store and i cant find it on my purchased app list what i do find is that now its a subscription with a weekly payment! i feel that is very unfair to all of us that had already payed long ago for the pro version.. we should be able to keep it unlocked with all features after all that is what we payed for in the first place!! Y'all have to fix this! 1 star for now until im able to use all my features
Unethical Practices
by Carl Ja on 2021/09/22 15:05
So I’ve used Font Candy for a few years and I’ve used the previous versions. I paid to have the font Candy logo off of my materials. The company has redesigned there format (not a problem) but now they won’t honor my previous purchase. They are suppose to restore purchases and they won’t. That’s bad business practices and I’m actually shock that Apple don’t know about this. If you pay for something it’s yours unless the app or service is no longer in existence. I’m not paying 1.99 a week for a service or item I should be able to restore. Restore purchase button is there for a reason guys. Smh. I will report to Apple!
I am extremely disappointed.
by YummyRamune on 2018/07/08 20:45
Until today, I used this app a minimum of 6 times per week. It was my favorite photo editing app. I updated my phone about a week ago and the app practically stopped working. I searched for an update and couldn’t find one, so I tried to delete it and re-download it. As soon as I re-downloaded it, I tried to restore my purchase of FontCandy+ and I couldn’t. Instead, I was being asked to pay a monthly fee... despite that I’ve already paid for this app... I’m so disappointed and frustrated to know that I’ll have to find a different app for editing. I won’t be using any more products developed by this company.
F@$k your subscription.
by Jcnix55 on 2019/08/26 03:49
I paid hard earned money for the “ad free version” (font candy +) in 2016, which is no longer receiving updates, no longer appears in the app store, it is basically unusable with today’s updated phones. I expect some sort of support over the long run for the money I paid. The new version, while it functions beautifully and as expected, requires a weekly subscription fee to remove the ads from the produced images. I say screw the subscription, at least let me pay one time to take the ugly ad stamp away. I cannot and will not recommend this app to anyone anymore unless something changes.
Poor communication, too expensive
by seamunki on 2018/02/18 22:38
I had the Pro version of this app before it turned into a WEEKLY subscription. Charging .99 per WEEK means you as a casual user, including teenagers and children, are paying over $50 EVERY YEAR to edit your own Instagram photos. Some users are reporting the charge is $1.99 per week... $100 yearly? Really? I have sent 4 messages so far about the paid subscription I had, which I am now unable to use after upgrading my iOS, and have so far only been told to “renew my subscription.” NO THANK YOU. The free service is useless with 15 second ads and ugly watermarks on my photos. You were great. Too bad.
I’m bummed
by B Paige on 2019/07/18 13:18
I bought the app a few years ago and I even upgraded to the one time pay so I didn’t have a watermark, etc. Now, as I’m getting a new device, it seems that the subscription is the only way to get the things I already paid for.. The whole reason I picked this app over others in the long run was because I didn’t have to use a subscription — I found the one time pay worth it. I don’t want to pay monthly for something I use just for work related photos..
What happened to the old version?
by Sugareesweets on 2021/02/21 20:03
I’ve been using this app to add a signature to my pics for years with no problems until a few days ago when it would crash when I uploaded a photo. When I went to check for an update I can’t even find it in the App Store...what I did find was the SAME exact app with a new color logo. So I downloaded it. It’s exactly the same as the previous one EXCEPT I’ve already paid for the upgrades to the old version. So you expect me to repay for the same services I’ve already paid for because you got new look?!?
Can’t restore. Too many ads
by UNHAPPYPHOTO on 2017/11/15 09:13
First off, without an in-app purchase, ALL THE ADS renders this app USELESS!!! If that’s not bad enough, I CANT RESTORE my purchase! I had purchased the unlock all package previously. I rarely write reviews, unless I’m strongly impressed or STRONGLY DISAPPOINTED. I don’t spend money on apps often and it just really ticks me off that I wasted money on this one, even though i have not used it in a long time, and it was on my previous phone, Ive purchased other apps, for my daughter, never had a problem restoring purchases, up to years later on multiple devices.
Love - with one exception
by K'lyn Paris on 2017/12/10 16:47
I absolutely love this application. It does everything that I want it to do. My only complaint is the subscription only option. I would be willing to pay $20 for this application if I didn’t have to subscribe to it. (As long as there were regular updates of course.) $48 a year is a bit outside my budget. That is my only complaint. Great job guys!
No response from company - app is not working and I paid for the upgrade
by Foster art on 2020/09/16 02:19
Hey guys, I tried to reach out via email and your social media before posting my review. Unfortunately there has been no response. The app does not open. I only see a spinning wheel and have used the same images and fonts for years. I can’t even find FontCandy + on the App Store to leave my review there as that is the app I upgraded/paid for. I’m desperately hoping that you can respond as I’d like to complete my back to school images and text. If I ever hear back from you I’ll change my review, but currently I’m telling everyone DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!
They Broke the app
by rgreen1234 on 2021/05/20 22:41
I have used and paid for font candy for years, this new update not only wiped out years of saved templates but made the app unusable, after too much use and auto saving templates it completely crashed. Won’t open. Won’t work. Also the ability to maneuver clipart is clunky and a difficult to expand, the previous versions were seamless. The BIGGEST issue is they took away color options and put in a terrible color bar with no way to match colors as there is no number codes or individual color options. They made it black, sleek looking and portrait mode, designing in portrait is terrible. I mean terrible, like they broke the easiest most diverse app on IOS. I’ve paid them hundreds to lose everything and customer support told me “oh well”. Don’t use this app, if you pay for it stop your subscription, they basically threw out 2 years of work I PAID to have saved and gave me a broken app in return.
Could be better
by Gracie Trey on 2019/02/11 15:34
I had this game for a little while and I have to say it was pretty boring. Just me as a person thought it was really boring. Also it was always crashing! So annoying. I couldn't be on the app for ten minutes without it crashing. The last thing I had a problem with is that every time I went on there was really offensive ads. Scary ads with creepy stalker people and ads with s*x. So please fix all of these things and take away those ads.
New app makes everything difficult.
by Junk Banter on 2021/06/28 22:27
I’ve been a paying customer for over 4 years, using the app to add quick text to my Instagram posts. The new re-design makes simple things like re-sizing, re-positioning, and re-coloring text way more difficult than it should be. All I try to do is access a previous template and move the text somewhere near bottom of the image. This is nearly impossible because the “confirm” button is lower than the actual text, and disappears when you get to the bottom edge. I actively hate using this app now where it used to be a life-saver.
Keeps crashing
by Preston owen on 2020/12/11 11:07
Great app but it kept crashing, I just paid for it too. Re downloaded it which fixed the problem but now it’s saying I have to pay again to remove the water mark ? Seriously give me a break. I just paid for it to not work properly and had to redowmlaod it just be charged again.
Changing the Rules
by LHWilliamson on 2019/05/23 20:39
I already paid several dollars for a lifetime subscription to this app... now you’re telling me I have to pay 1.99 a WEEK for the same content I’ve been using for years... pretty lame guys. I would be willing to pay for special font packages on an a la carte basis as new material is released, but asking customers who have already paid to now start paying differently for the same system they’ve been using for years is ridiculous. This was my go to app for adding fonts for the past 5+ years but I will now be looking for a new one. Not a good business model.
App Works Great...Customer Service Non-Existent
by Ty Clarke 86 on 2021/03/18 02:55
The app is great. I paid for the pro version and used it for years on my iPhone. I then upgraded to another iPhone recently and when I tried to restore my purchase, the app told me I would need to repay...for the same app I already paid for. I reached out to the customer service team and was told they would “look into it.” That was 8 days ago. No communication since. Extremely disappointing. I’ll be using a different app from now on.
Be Cautious
by Kate Koskinen on 2018/03/16 12:39
I loved this app. It was my favorite thing to use when coming up with cute and quirky things for social media. That is, until I got a new phone and had to download the app all over again. I already paid for the premium to remove the watermark & get some of the other features. Why the hell would I pay $1.99 A WEEK to have features I already had when I purchased it the first time around? Doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me, and it definitely is not good business practice. No app is work $2 a week.
Nothing works!!
by LLSlush on 2020/11/06 21:16
I’m not sure what’s going on with this app but it is completely unusable. I just have the free version but every time you try to do anything (change font, change color, size, etc.) it basically freezes and you can’t leave that editing feature to go edit something else. The check mark button to tell it you’re done using that feature either doesn’t do anything, or pulls up an ad for their premium version that you can’t get rid of. I tried closing the app and opening again and it just makes you start all over.
When it works, it’s a fantastic app.
by I. Kang on 2021/08/12 16:51
5 stars if it didn’t crash so frequently. It always crashes when I go in to “add artwork” and it’s a bit aggravating considering I primarily use this app to add text to photos/edits. I literally have to uninstall and then reinstall, which gets wouldn’t be so bad if I didn’t have to keep re-downloading text fonts cause don’t don’t carry over to the reinstall. Even after you restore purchase. Important inconveniences that add up.
They ruined it
by scoop peabodu on 2021/05/26 15:22
App use to be very easy and functional, upgrade is total crap. How do make a interface less intuitive I’ll never know. Moving fonts around is impossible, font shadows are horrible and render font unreadable. Sizing is next to impossible and grabs background instead of font 90% of the time ... color fills are muted, just a total crap upgrade. I’ve been using this app for 4+ years and I’m never coming back to it.. having watermarks now after paying to have them removed before the upgrade ... if I could give it negative stars I would. Do not download
Good App, but unfair.
by CheckPlease12 on 2018/05/30 01:52
I’ve had FC for a very long time, and I eventually bought Font Candy +. It’s an amazing app that I use almost daily for edits and covers. However, upon realizing that the app that I have has been crashing consistently, it’s telling me that I have to download the new app and get a new subscription. I don’t think it makes sense for someone who had full access to the previous installment to have to pay for the same thing they had again.
Crashes since last update
by crise125 on 2018/11/20 13:46
When app worked I’d give 5 stars but since update 1 Star Ever since the last update the app will crash 30 seconds after loading. I use this app all the time for my small online business and have the paid version. It’s my go to app for all my graphic needs. It’s becoming tiresome to delete the app completely and re-download it only to have to do it again the next time I open it.
what happened to fontcandy+
by witchingh0ur on 2020/11/16 16:23
I paid for the Plus version of this app a few years ago to use for my business. That version now doesn’t exist in the app store and whenever I attempt to use it, it crashes. Now it seems that Fontcandy has decided to switch to a subscription-based service. I’m pretty annoyed that I paid for Fontcandy+ and now can’t use it without it crashing and instead have to spend more money on a subscription if I want to keep continuity with my previous projects.
So Disappointing ... Greedy Developers
by Shakasis on 2020/05/15 05:31
I paid full price for the pro version of this app a while back and now they are charging $1.99 a week after I already paid for professional use. This was by far one of my most favorite apps to use for fonts but this is just greedy on the developers part. I deserve a full refund for the price I paid for pro because this is ridiculous. Yes all my fonts are there after restoring my purchase... but why should I have to pay weekly for pro when I already paid the flat rate. This is greed to the hundredth power!!!

I can’t live without this app it is magnificent you will enjoy it!!!!
The old apple app downloads
by Instagram @ajhphm on 2021/10/12 03:19
I like it when we were able to use the app for free or upgrade to the full version One time payment. Now it is all about the money money money & not everyone has money to be able to use the apps. Or doesn’t wanna spend money every week do use the app + monthly + Yearly. It would be very nice if we pay one time like we used to and affordable for everyone. LIKE THE OLD DAYS SO PLEASE MAKE THIS FUN FOR EVERYONE. & I remember when this app was free with advertisements on the bottom of the screen and I loved this app now not so much anymore. So I am not giving this review for the app any stars
Everything is wrong
by aryankian on 2021/10/07 16:44
Either saying “Something went wrong” or crashing and jump out of app
Great App, but crashes too much
by Mr.Nomeaux on 2021/10/02 10:49
Love the app but it keeps crashing.
I don’t like the changes
by PsalmSAHM on 2021/09/26 09:01
Harder to use. Seems I have to pay to save my file.
Unethical Practices
by Carl Ja on 2021/09/22 15:05
So I’ve used Font Candy for a few years and I’ve used the previous versions. I paid to have the font Candy logo off of my materials. The company has redesigned there format (not a problem) but now they won’t honor my previous purchase. They are suppose to restore purchases and they won’t. That’s bad business practices and I’m actually shock that Apple don’t know about this. If you pay for something it’s yours unless the app or service is no longer in existence. I’m not paying 1.99 a week for a service or item I should be able to restore. Restore purchase button is there for a reason guys. Smh. I will report to Apple!
They bricked it for early investors
by SamQuinnTen on 2021/09/20 12:57
I bought full access to FontCandy years ago. I work at an underfunded rural community college and the graphics helped me get the word out to students about math workshops or tutoring assistance. Since the update, restoring your purchase puts the app in perpetual crash mode. Works perfectly fine until you restore. It’s pretty awful to block access to something someone has paid for. I wouldn’t trust this company with my money again.
Purchased but after updated offering “trial”
by anotherlumberjax on 2021/09/13 16:18
After not having used the app for a while, I went to use it today and upon opening it offered me a “3 Day Free Trial.” I’ve already purchased the app. Why would I need a trial? In app I clicked “restore purchases” on the first screen and it crashed. Tried opening it again and it glitches and won’t open. Deleted it and reinstalled, same issue. Not worth paying for if it constantly crashes or won’t even open.
Crashes
by Shelyshells on 2021/09/12 20:46
I use to love this app, I even bought features used it all the time now it crashes won’t even open
Horrible
by ExplsveTACOZ on 2021/09/09 00:12
The new app is horrible. Not user friendly at all.
Not happy with this version
by STONEMADE1of6 on 2021/09/04 23:54
This app might be an upgrade but not better than the previous version of FontCandy in many ways.
Crash🤯
by rtg707 on 2021/08/30 02:03
Coo app if it didn’t crash all the time 😤
Completely difficult
by msmkat on 2021/08/29 22:22
Experienced designer yet can’t can not put text on photo.
That’s one way to not get subscriptions…
by tatmom03 on 2021/08/29 16:31
I had a lifetime subscription to this. Since the new update, “Restore Purchases” crashes the app. So no, I won’t re-subscribe to something I owned in order to try it out.
App crashes when i click "artwork"
by jos3ni on 2021/08/27 16:22
I bought the membership so id expect the app to work great but every time i click on artwork the app closes. Also when i try to delete templates it doesnt allow me to delete them. Fix this soon please!
Shadow
by Peanut4852 on 2021/08/26 15:05
Add outline feature or undo shadow feature - it was fire before
Please help!
by Stratajemma3 on 2021/08/25 23:10
I LOVED the photo editor that was sister to this app: Photo Candy. It was full of great shapes and patterns that were super fun to use and also an asset as an artist. Please bring it back! There’s nothing else like it in the App Store. Also GifX was amazing. Please bring photo candy back! I would gladly pay a subscription fee for it! Live your other apps as well!
Declined Functionality
by Mimi J7 on 2021/08/20 19:19
Not sure what happened with FontCandy since they started charging for it in Dec. The app often crashes & I have to delete it and reinstall. In doing so I loose all of my templates. I have to do this about twice a week!!! And the option to import a font isn't working either...! Maybe the designers thought that adding a sleeker interface would justify the new charges - but it doesn't if we loose functionality. Aug. 20: the app always crashes when I try to add artwork. I have to remove the app & reinstall to add artwork & in so doing - I loose all my templates. Functionality has declined since Font Candy started charging! Isn't the opposite supposed to happen?! Looking for another app - post haste!
Trash after update
by desertsnow555 on 2021/08/19 01:26
Used to love this app but after update it became total trash.
Update Ruined
by Jeremy Joeface on 2021/08/15 22:26
I used to enjoy this app. They updated it maybe a year ago? It's one of the worst updates ever. It's totally ruined the app. Find another photo editor. This one is pretty useless since the update. Extremely awkward and very difficult to do the most basic things.
When it works, it’s a fantastic app.
by I. Kang on 2021/08/12 16:51
5 stars if it didn’t crash so frequently. It always crashes when I go in to “add artwork” and it’s a bit aggravating considering I primarily use this app to add text to photos/edits.

Saved images are blurry
by Ashley7103 on 2021/08/10 00:47
I just created something and upon saving, the image/words are very blurry.
Disappointed
by shhrzdBH on 2021/07/31 19:17
I loved this app, especially the option that I could have color and text on pictures without the picture being completely visible, and that’s gone. The update isn’t very good
A fun agile type app ruined
by Niner Rob on 2021/07/31 16:28
I downloaded the first versions of this app quite a few years ago and used it a lot. Finally, there was an app that allowed you to professionally adjust your type: letterspacing, line-spacing, and word-spacing (a very rare feature outside photoshop), and also the ability to set paragraphs of text in “justified” format. Like so many other type apps, there was no individual kerning, but there was an array of cool free fonts, and most critically, you could also load your own fonts. This made Font Candy a flexible, fun appto use when you just wanted to make a quick layout, without going into Photoshop. Sadly, that version is dead, replaced by this Instagrammy fangirl version. And on top of that a formerly free app is now on two dollars a week?! Are you kidding me? I would pay maybe, $25 a year. And if you could give me individual kerning, I’d pay maybe even $50 a year. But at the rate of two dollars a week, that’s an outrageous $104 a year. Get real. I’m all for developers getting paid so they can continue to provide and improve the app, but I’m afraid the developers of FontCandy have an unrealistic self appraisal of their app. It’s just not worth that price. I’ll just use Phonto-Pro, or fire up Photoshop.
It used to be better
by vader0154 on 2021/07/28 11:20
A lot of the new changes make this app function a whole lot less. It either needs to be fixed or I will find a new pic editor.
Won’t even open
by travis2234343 on 2021/07/28 03:14
I have an older gen iPad and used to use this app for my job all the time. Now it’s stuck on the opening screen and app won’t even load. Needs to be fixed. We need a new update!!
Changed to Subscription - dont bother
by TheWagnus on 2021/07/21 20:15
I had this app for a long time and loved it but one day it suddenly didnt work. I found out that they disabled the app I BOUGHT and are now doing a WEEKLY subscription to use it. No thanks. Also thanks for screwing me over.
Update is more complicated
by phihei on 2021/07/20 14:23
I used to enjoy this app, but with the most recent updates have made it more complicated. I wish there was a font candy lite version. I don't like the dark background either. I used to use it all the time but I don’t like it anymore.
Day one
by Mygirlsamazing on 2021/07/19 03:32
Just starting to use the app. So far looks like it will be a decent offering of options in fonts etc. We shall see....be back at week one Most recent update (July 2021 ish) Seems much harder to use. Options aren’t as easily accessible. Can’t find anywhere that allows you to change size of font other than pinching and expanding the text boxes, then you risk skewing them sideways etc. Seems messy now.
Paid for original app
by Ant Streets on 2021/07/19 00:59
I had the pro version of the other FontCandy app and this one is not the same. I can’t even access any of my artwork to add to any image without the app crashing.
Was great
by nedrow999 on 2021/07/18 23:49
Used app for years …loved it but recently was forced to reinstall as photos albums would not load as they previously did, after reinstallation Font Candy wanted to watermark my photos which hadn’t been the case for years, fonts were all shadowed and I prefer not to shadow but the watermark default was a deal breaker.
Not a fan of the upgrade
by Angel LaFaye on 2021/07/18 21:23
I’ve used and paid for FonCandy for year and always loved the ease of using this app. There was a recent update that I don’t like and all my fonts and images were lost. It’s NOT easy to navigate anymore and the features are hard to figure out. So disappointed
Can’t change font size. Too small to read. Useless.
by hakzhdhwkbx on 2021/07/16 21:02
YOU CAN’T CHANGE FONT SIZE. Makes app useless. It would be really cool app if you could. Hope they change this.
Great app before upgrade…
by Cisco's on 2021/07/16 13:44
…now I can’t size the font. So I am stock with a fixed size and 99% won’t work with my layouts.
Updated, still crashing
by greatnewpodcast on 2021/07/14 02:04
I recently updated the app to latest version, when I selected “restore purchase” it would crash. When going back into the app, it crashes while in loading screen. I removed and reinstalled, it continued to do the same thing. Use to love the app and want to love it again. Help!
Why?!

Whyyyyy
by Lwizzle on 2021/07/04 15:20
I used this app for years, I can’t believe you’re now charging weekly to remove a stupid water mark! Greedy b*stards! Definitely lost a loyal user! If anyone want a better app for FREE, go check out “Phonto” they’re way better and you don’t have to pay!
Update is Terrible!
by rchjsfkk on 2021/07/01 13:29
I’ve used this app for years and loved it until the recent update. It is terrible! It has made it so much more difficult to use. Not worth the trouble to even deal with now. So disappointed.
New app makes everything difficult.

I’ve been a paying customer for over 4 years, using the app to add quick text to my Instagram posts.

New new new
by Angry Bosslady on 2021/06/27 05:49
I hate what the app has become. I purchased the extras for the original app a few years ago and love it. Once I updated the phone the new app won’t recognize my whole app purchase in favor for weekly payments. 😡 Now, they have compartmentalized everything to the point where it’s more confusing, takes longer and wants you to purchase more. I’m done with you FontCandy.
BAD UPDATE
by DENE2216 on 2021/06/25 20:49
Now when I add text to my photos there is no place to make the text smaller or different colors. I hate this new update, why make it so confusing. After 45 mins of trying to make text smaller, I quit. You are losing a customer.....

by precious_lt on 2021/06/24 01:40
I have used this app for several years and absolutely loved it but it seems like now every time I try to use it either freezes or it just crashes. I saw where’re it said the last update fixed that issue but I’m still having it. I have even tried deleting the app and reloading it. I actually pay for this app so I would like for it to work. Please tell me what I can do to fix these issues.
Update made app worse!
by TheQ1970 on 2021/06/23 15:15
Since the update….all my creations are blurry/fuzzy….what the heck am I paying for??
It’s become poor
by gsiebdjfoab on 2021/06/22 17:56
This used to be a great app. I’ve had it for years but it’s become unusable. I haven’t been able to search photos within the app for more than a year. I’ve updated and uninstalled. It now just crashes upon launching. I’m done.
Disappointing update.
by Tinadino3677 on 2021/06/22 15:13
6/22 UPDATE: they still won’t restore your purchases. I paid to remove the watermark years ago. App still crashed and says “nothing to restore” get the Add Text app. It works the way this app used to, NO WATERMARK. You can pay to unlock more fonts and a lot of the free fonts are the same as this app. Very disappointing the direction this app has gone. This was a great app until the new update. The app was fine until I tried to restore my purchases. Ever since then it crashes upon opening. I even deleted it and reinstalled several times. It won’t let me restore purchases and now won’t open. I will change my rating and update if a new update comes out correcting these problems. 5/20 UPDATE: there was an update that fixed a “bug” but my app still crashes. Anyone know of another good app they can suggest?!
Used to be great

It’s no longer working! Frozen screen

App creators plz fix this issue. I used to love this app. Thanks
New version is not it…
by Greg Terrace on 2021/06/20 04:55
Convoluted, not straight forward. The old format was amazing, I’m not sure why it needed to change. I used this app for on the go marketing for social media… not I’m not longer using it.
What???? DON’T GET THIS
by Lady black heart on 2021/06/18 07:42
UPDATE TRIED REINSTALLING AND HITTING RESTORE PURCHASES AND IT CRASHES. DELETING. I bought the paid version of this app ages ago. Now I have to pay more...again?! Messed up really. This WAS my favorite app. Doesn’t matter any how as now it crashes and won’t work. Sad. I use it almost everyday. 5/26/21
Nope! Why ruin a good thing
by Opinion 18 on 2021/06/18 06:50
Used this for years and paid for it before and not I have to subscribe weekly. F that! Deleting and looking at others.
App is GARBAGE! STAY AWAY
by Tacos AND Burgers on 2021/06/17 20:03
Like EVERY other company or app out there of course, they went for an ENTIRELY DIFFERENT DESIGN change which ultimately made the app unusable. My fingers are TOO BUG TO EDIT WITH THIS NEE UPDATE!!! I’ve been using this 3-4 years. It was fine. The new update made it 20x more confusing to edit. Why can’t you guys ever leave something be? What big brain decided to redesign the app? Good job cause now It’s uninstalled. Ridiculous
Won’t load

App no longer works, crashes instantly
Juice Not Worth The Squeeze
by Treybaghdad on 2021/06/15 02:57
The app started out free and I even paid for the adds to be removed. Now, here they have started charging everyone a subscription FOR FONTS. You just lost a bunch of us. Other apps have popped onto the scene and offers more for less.
Long time user now deleted
by Firgs on 2021/06/14 18:41
I used this app for 6 years to help me run my small business. I loved it. Now I am suddenly being forced into a weekly subscription, an overly complicated UI, and all of my uploads are gone?! I feel so burned! I’m out!
The complicated use
by jecray on 2021/06/14 12:25
I throughly enjoyed the old version. It was simpler to use. This new version makes it tough to erase or remove the templates. I don’t like auto save templates. When you copy and paste the text comes in a straight horizontal line versus stacking like paragraph form… it’s just the app creators tried to be too fancy. Simple is always better!
Used to love this app
by The Tunawaffle on 2021/06/11 20:34
This was my go to, I used it all the time for work. Now after updating it won’t open the app for more than 2 seconds before it crashes. Also when the update came that completely changed how the app looks and works I lost all of my imported fonts I had collected. So disappointed, bring the older version back the new is hard to use and doesn’t work
Update is awful
by Gymnastics star3 on 2021/06/10 22:16
The new update is horrible. Pictures now save blurry and they don’t save automatically to an album like they used to. App is also not as user friendly
🤯
by AZN_HI.AN_YT_GI on 2021/06/09 04:56
It’s that time…..bye Felicia…..the time together was fun. Thanks, but No Thanks to the update of the app. It’s quite frustrating with the major over haul. 😣😖😫😩
Used to be good.
by catlove21 on 2021/06/08 21:59
This app changed and I don’t like it.
Want the old version
by Lbrenn on 2021/06/06 03:05
Horrible now! And the upgrade dumped all my templates, about three years of work all gone! Thanks for nothing.
Update Overhaul Moneygrab
by Jelyrolsmif on 2021/06/05 14:35
Wonderful app. However, the company made an unannounced decision to ignore the investment of their in-app purchase users to go for a different business model. If I can get burned by this developer without warning once, I will not let it happen twice.
Disappointed!
by Sammysgranny on 2021/06/04 15:34
I’ve enjoyed using the app for several years, but with the recent update I would have to pay to use the “image showing through text” feature, which has always been a favorite in this app. Sad.
Another ruined app
by LayKnight on 2021/06/04 11:33
FC was my go-to text editor for years. The update has made it unusable. Deleted.
Not Working
by muddyramcowgirl on 2021/06/03 22:31
Since the update the app is not wanting to load!
Don’t purchase or use app
by Help addict user on 2021/06/01 12:38
Someone that hates humans “upgraded” the app and it ruined everything. Paid hundreds for years only to have to throw this all away.
Crashes and lags
by Seriously guys...fix it. on 2021/05/29 18:36
Latest version on ip max 11 pro crashes, lags, is pretty much unusable. Can’t even add simple text to a photo and have it keep its normal dimensions. Please fix. This app used to be one of my go tos
Much better before

Crap
App Crashing- Can’t Adjust Font Size
by Jana516 on 2021/05/27 14:10
I’m working on a year-long project, and this most recent update is infuriating. If I can’t adjust the font size, I’ll have to start my work all over again. It’s exhausting to even think about all the time I’ll have to reinvest with another app.
LAME
by Ulibarri5280 on 2021/05/27 13:43
This WAS my favorite app UNTIL this stupid pointless update!!! It was fine the way it was! Off to find a new font app! Please fire who ever was in charge of this revamp!
I used to like this app
by namorsolo on 2021/05/27 04:42
I don’t anymore!
Won’t restore past purchase
by JasonR on 2021/05/26 17:31
I paid for the pro version of the past version of this app. I went to open the app and got a message that the app couldn’t work any more. I downloaded the new version and when I tried to restore my purchase, I got a message that there wasn’t a purchase to restore. Paying $2/week seems like a lot of money ff what I need this app for.
They ruined it
by scoop peabodu on 2021/05/26 15:22
App use to be very easy and functional, upgrade is total crap. How do make a interface less intuitive I’ll never know. Moving fonts around is impossible, font shadows are horrible and render font unreadable. Sizing is next to impossible and grabs background instead of font 90% of the time ... color fills are muted, just a total crap upgrade. I’ve been using this app for 4+ years and I’m never coming back to it.. having watermarks now after paying to have them removed before the upgrade ... if I could give it negative stars I would. Do not download
They canceled FontCandy+ and now they want me to pay for pro features again
by Zac9876 on 2021/05/26 12:38
I had paid for the old pro version a couple years ago, which they pulled off the App Store. I go to use this one, and they want me to pay to use features I had already paid for once. But because this isn’t the + version of the app, it won’t let me restore any purchases. Not going to pay twice.
Hate the latest update
by allngr11 on 2021/05/26 00:36
This app used to be my absolute favorite. I use it in all my marketing. It was so easy to use and intuitive. The latest update erased all my downloaded fonts and is so hard to figure out! The default outline text color is ugly and the new drop shadows are so hard to get right on a phone. The menus are a mess and it’s miserable. If you’re going to change your app, change it a little at a time so it’s easier to get used to the new thing. Don’t change EVERYTHING so it’s impossible to use!!!
Poor Customer Service
by iMINIr53 on 2021/05/25 19:14
I used this app for 7 years. Everyday! and paid weekly to have Pro. During the last update I lost 7 years worth of my work. I tried to restore and nothing. I emailed customer support and they will not respond. TERRIBLE company. I found another app to use. Poor quality and total waste of money! I wish I could get ever dime back I spent on this.
Horrible update
by Pilates Devotee on 2021/05/25 10:15
Until the recent update, I happily paid for this app and used it on a daily basis for my business. Now with the new update, all my templates are gone and I have to do all the work from the past year all over again. I’m so mad that I’m writing my first review ever about an app. I contacted support and they are not replying about my problem. What was once my favorite app is now getting deleted.
Used to be great
by KimP2222 on 2021/05/24 23:48
Loved the app for years. I used it regularly and paid for the paid version. Now it’s regularly crashing and not even usable
Updated app keeps crashing
by mercedessays on 2021/05/24 16:34
Whoever decided on updating this app needs to be fired. It keeps crashing, won’t restore my purchases, and who is going to pay $1.99 a week?! Trash. And unfortunate since I have used this app for years.
Constant crashing
by vduke928 on 2021/05/24 11:38
Used to love this app and would use it all the time. But I am now having to go to another app as I can’t even get this one to open since the last update.
Please please please help
by Kyme03 on 2021/05/24 07:08
PLEASE CHANGE THE APP BACK!!! The app was $10 when I first got it (everything unlocked). I was DEVASTATED when it was changed to $1.99 a WEEK! Not month but WEEK! The sad thing is that I loved it so much that I paid $1.99 a week for over two years. Ya I know...I did that. Now it’s all changed and I want to scream! It’s disgusting!!! Change it back please please please! I will freaking keep paying the $1.99 a week if it goes back to the way it used to be!
Impossible to navigate
by Ernie Johnson on 2021/05/23 16:46
No instructions and not intuitive at all. Impossible to navigate.
Crashes
by Tinaw2448 on 2021/05/23 14:57
Ever since the new update on your app, I can’t even use it for one second before it crashes and closes.
Update
by iiSess on 2021/05/23 01:18
Whoever did this update needs a serious self evaluation. This app went from beautifully simplistic to overly complicated. I will be uninstalling which is a shame cause I have used this for so long. Bring the old style back.
Won’t stop crashing
by Jus teen on 2021/05/23 00:36
Since the latest update this App won’t even open for longer than 3 seconds before it crashes. So sad because I have used it for years and loved it.
Terrible updated, ruined the app.
by MBaceiredo on 2021/05/22 20:41
I used to PAY for this app, it was my favorite app to use for my business and now it’s ruined, my pictures don’t turn out the way they used to before. Please change it back, this is so upsetting, I have to redo all of my work now because the font looks blurry now when it’s small.
No longer opens
by Tina(NWL) on 2021/05/22 02:48
Hi Team Font Candy, I love the app, I’m a longtime paid user, but the new update has rendered it unusable. The app crashes on the title screen. Hope a fix comes really soon.
Update not an upgrade.
by Heir Dryer on 2021/05/21 19:04
Looks like the app updated within the past day or so, it went from an easy, quick to find layout, to everything in different spots, and now i can’t delete the templates i don’t want anymore. I don’t need a “FLASHY NEW LAYOUT” i need an app that is consistent and manageable. Also. Drop the 5 year old rainbow home screen.
Not impressed
by xoelenaox on 2021/05/21 07:40
I used this app a lot but since the new update its not even wanting to load all the way i keep getting Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes. If the problem persists, contact our support.
They Broke the app
by rgreen1234 on 2021/05/20 22:41
I have used and paid for font candy for years, this new update not only wiped out years of saved templates but made the app unusable, after too much use and auto saving templates it completely crashed. Won’t open. Won’t work. Also the ability to maneuver clipart is clunky and a difficult to expand, the previous versions were seamless. The BIGGEST issue is they took away color options and put in a terrible color bar with no way to match colors as there is no number codes or individual color options. They made it black, sleek looking and portrait mode, designing in portrait is terrible. I mean terrible, like they broke the easiest most diverse app on IOS. I’ve paid them hundreds to lose everything and customer support told me “oh well”. Don’t use this app, if you pay for it stop your subscription, they basically threw out 2 years of work I PAID to have saved and gave me a broken app in return.
What happened to other Font Candy?
by Marthallen1 on 2021/05/20 17:40
I loved the font Candy that was on here just a month or so ago. It’s now gone! I used it to write on the cards I made & added captions to my photos. Please bring that one back. I used it all the time
Too expensive
by Matt.scoggins on 2021/05/20 14:48
This was a sub par free app. Now they are charging 1.99/WEEK!? NOT WORTH IT. Give us a reasonable YEARLY rate and I would consider it. I’ve used the free one for years but this price hike is ridiculous. Bye bye
$1.99 a week?!
by ValerieJeannis on 2021/05/20 14:05
I purchased font Candy+ Now it’s discontinued And as an alternative not only can my previous purchase not be restored but there is a WEEKLY cost. I understand generating income. It’s just unfortunate that this was the route decided on. This really was one of the best, not so much anymore.
Crashing! Hit a Wall! I need a miracle!
by Co0ki on 2021/05/20 03:53
App won’t even load due to new download. Super disappointed!
All my templates wiped out by the new update
by ShaynaEdwards92 on 2021/05/20 03:01
I am so upset, they changed the entire interface and now all my saved content on the app is completely gone. What a waste, I was so happy paying for the app too until this. Ridiculous.
Great app but won't stop crashing.
by Princess Flying Unicorn on 2018/02/05 04:21
I don't know if it's just my device or if it's the app itself. I've been using this app a lot for editing photos and such and now it randomly crashes every time I use it. Sometimes it'll crash immediately; other times it lets me use it for a minute and then it crashes and erases all my hard work. It really upsets me that now I have to stop using this app due to all the crashing. I'm giving 4 stars because I've been using this app for around a year, and in that year it was great! Also, my device is generally not very good. So I wouldn't be surprised if it was just my device not being able to run this app, but at the same time I'm not sure so 4 stars for now. TL;DR This app is great and I've been using it for a year but it keeps crashing and I'm not sure if it's the app or my tablet so I give it 4 stars.
A fun agile type app ruined
by Niner Rob on 2021/07/31 16:28
I downloaded the first versions of this app quite a few years ago and used it a lot. Finally, there was an app that allowed you to professionally adjust your type: letterspacing, line-spacing, and word-spacing (a very rare feature outside photoshop), and also the ability to set paragraphs of text in “justified” format. Like so many other type apps, there was no individual kerning, but there was an array of cool free fonts, and most critically, you could also load your own fonts. This made Font Candy a flexible, fun appto use when you just wanted to make a quick layout, without going into Photoshop. Sadly, that version is dead, replaced by this Instagrammy fangirl version. And on top of that a formerly free app is now on two dollars a week?! Are you kidding me? I would pay maybe, $25 a year. And if you could give me individual kerning, I’d pay maybe even $50 a year. But at the rate of two dollars a week, that’s an outrageous $104 a year. Get real. I’m all for developers getting paid so they can continue to provide and improve the app, but I’m afraid the developers of FontCandy have an unrealistic self appraisal of their app. It’s just not worth that price. I’ll just use Phonto-Pro, or fire up Photoshop.
This used to be the only app I used...
by Cleo Solaris on 2019/08/20 21:51
I had this app on my iPhone 6+ and due to me being rather forgetful about updating, I somehow managed to keep the version of the app where I didn’t have to fork over cash every week to keep the basic functions of the app active. When I upgraded to a new phone and installed the app, to my horror, EVERYTHING - the Blender, half the fonts I regularly used, all of the features I used this app for - are now locked behind the greediest pricing I have seen in photography apps. I can’t afford a weekly drain on my finances just to use an app that was on my phone a month ago. I am utterly disappointed in this developer, this was my favorite editing app. Used it on everything. Edit: To my utter dismay, my other favorite editing app, Fused, is also by Easy Tiger. I’m deleting all of their apps off my phone, even if they were to drop the price to $0.50/week, I’d refuse to give them money. These apps were free-use last year, and they literally took features away to place a pay-wall around them. Goodbye, Easy Tiger.
Love it for some reason it doesn’t work anymore!
by 12lulu34 on 2020/01/24 17:18
Been using this app for work but all of a sudden it doesn’t work anymore! When I put search it says I need internet connection, which I do, and it won’t work with data either (yes I checked my settings) so I uninstalled it and installed it again and now not only is the problem still the same but I can’t restore my purchases meaning the watermark is there and the fonts that I had everything disappeared and I can’t recover it! It’s very frustrating especially since I spent money on it.
Opened my world
by Beneficial App Seeker on 2018/07/14 05:20
I was recently asked to send photos to a company as part of my official product complaint. They asked me to put the reference number ON the photo. So, I went looking for an app that would help me. (I did not know my device had a markup feature!) Many required an iOS that I did not have, all seemed to subscription-based. But this one offered a 7 day free trial. So, I gave it a chance. It's nice! I won't be keeping my subscription because I don't need these services for my day-to-day life; but I could certainly see using this app if I were more active on social media. I'm glad I know it's out there, should things change. I found it user-friendly and inspiring. The options are plentiful. Just not for me, right now. Also, wish there were a free version.
Love This App!!!! But have some small suggestions
by EA2019 on 2018/01/19 17:27
I don’t know how much you all pay attention to these reviews but I have a few suggestions that, in my humble opinion, would perfect this app. 1. It would be awesome if the size feature allowed users to specify width and/or length adjustments. Sometimes I want to make text wider without making it longer and vice versa. 2. Being required to upload an image seems outdated. It would be cool if users could type text directly onto the transparent background. 3. There should definitely be a “return to previous work” option so that editing a previously saved image doesn’t mean starting completely from scratch. Other than those things, I love it!!!! It’s so great.
Fonts are neat. Some things need tweaking.
by r@zznJ@zz315 on 2018/01/21 19:07
So I like being able to add text to my photos to get the poster look. Having the ability to order magnets, t-shirts, & pillows is neat too! However, when my photo is uploaded to those product templates it always cuts off the majority of my text and/or photo. The cropping isn't shrinkable but only zoomable. It would also be handy to have the sizes of 4x6, 5x6, and 8x10 available so that after utilizing the text features a person could print or order those size photos without having to use another application, like Snapfish. Also when adding the text in it lets you increase size and shrink text size but it would be better if you could set the perimeters so there are margins and the text doesn't run off the page when it is increased in size.
Great but...
by crimsonfox47 on 2019/10/07 02:38
I love what I can do with this app when in the midst of using it, but I have two main gripes 1) you can’t save progress so you essentially can either only work on one thing at a time or redo something from the beginning if you want to go back and make a small change, but the bigger issue is 2) for whatever reason, it almost always remains frozen for several minutes when I first open it; if I leave the app for long enough then come back, it does the same before I can start using it. Maybe something’s going on with my iPad Pro 10.5 (since I got it a year ago but it seems to have gotten worse) but it did the same thing on my iPad Mini 4 that I had before. I can’t reliably open app and get straight to work right where I left off. It’d be AMAZING if it wasn’t for these two things.
Love it
by lilwickedwitch2000 on 2019/03/14 05:53
Easy to use. Something special happened to me with in the last 48 hours. And I decided to make an account that is an anonymous where no one knows my name or who I am or where I’m from exactly. To give me a chance to explain everything. I am in no way trying to say I am funded by this app. But I am definitely going to use it for any photo editing that I need and would love for them to sponsor me one day IF they choose. They are not obligated to. And I love this app very helpful and maybe one day I will hit the news once and become a hit for something great! But these are just Dream I realize that and am pretty “down to earth” so to speak. Will definitely recommend it to people.
Best App Out There But Tiger Apps is GREEDY.
by atreich on 2018/09/21 19:00
I paid for Font Candy + 2+ years ago. I have loved it dearly and have struggled to find another app that comes close when it comes to editing things the way I need them to be edited. However, Font Candy+ is being phased out (it no longer appears in the App Store, you cannot share it with others, and members of your Apple Family cannot download it either). Instead, they’ve introduced an outrageous WEEKLY subscription which is absolute ludicrous. But that’s also the only way to get rid of their logo in the app. Unless you’re willing to pay $50-$100 a year for an app (you can pay just a little more and get a higher quality editing app for your computer or phone), this app has become useless. As a longtime customer with multiple of the Easy Tiger Apps, I’m sad to say that I can no longer support them as they move in this direction.
Disappointing update.
by Tinadino3677 on 2021/06/22 15:13
6/22 UPDATE: they still won’t restore your purchases. I paid to remove the watermark years ago. App still crashed and says “nothing to restore” get the Add Text app. It works the way this app used to, NO WATERMARK. You can pay to unlock more fonts and a lot of the free fonts are the same as this app. Very disappointing the direction this app has gone. This was a great app until the new update. The app was fine until I tried to restore my purchases. Ever since then it crashes upon opening. I even deleted it and reinstalled several times. It won’t let me restore purchases and now won’t open. I will change my rating and update if a new update comes out correcting these problems. 5/20 UPDATE: there was an update that fixed a “bug” but my app still crashes. Anyone know of another good app they can suggest?!
What happened?!?!!!!!
by Please Visit JW.ORG on 2018/08/22 23:11
I bought font candy pro probably little less than 2 years ago. But for the past few months it’s been crashing acting stupid a little slow but I dealt with it. Now for the past few weeks it’s kind of become unusable! Which makes me very upset because I absolutely LOVE this app this is my favorite app to use for my photos. So I search the App Store for this app today and only the free one popped up my paid one is gone! So I paid for it’s gone and it’s unusable! The new app that is free for the pro version it wants me to pay $.99 every WEEK! I already paid for the pro version I should not have to pay for anything else again!! If you pay for something once you should not have to pay for it again!! This just frustrates me so much because Like I said I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS APP!! 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
Ruined a good app
by stretch002 on 2021/04/01 22:25
To be clear: I bought this app and paid full price for it. I’ve used it for years. This was a terrific little app until this update with “pro tools”. Now they want me to pay to remove a watermark despite the fact I do NOT use any of the new pro features and can no longer create the things I was creating before this update without the watermark. The developers have gotten greedy and completely ruined a perfectly functional app by demanding payment for unwanted and unused features. It’s like watermark ransomware for an app you have been using for years. You cannot use this app without the watermark showing up despite not wanting, needing or using ANY of the new “Pro features”. Definitely my final purchase with this developer.
EASY TIGER, PLEASE HELP ME RESOLVE MY ISSUE WITH YOUR APP
by Stshakedown on 2018/03/07 13:18
I import alot of fonts onto font candy, and there are alot of fonts I end up not liking, and everytime I delete a font, so if i delete multiple fonts, when i close the app/refresh the app, all the fonts i just deleted end up right back on the top of my font list, this is very irritating, the only way i can clear all the fonts (but then i would have to start over and re-download all the other fonts I DO want), is to delete the font candy app and re-install it, and i really dont want to have to keep doing that in order to make my font list look nice. Can someone please help me resolve this issue???? Thank you.
I would give this app zero starts if I could
by Who'scallinginSeattle on 2018/01/25 16:55
Read through EVERYTHING before you download an app. They make it appear to be free, but if you scroll WAY down to the bottom It says $1.99/per WEEK, yes you are reading That correctly $1.99 PER WEEK!! Then when I sent them an email to cancel and stop charging me, they tried to play dumb and say, “we don’t know what you are talking about, we couldn’t charge you like that even if we wanted to.” Really? Because you did and you have been! This is very shady business practices! I want all my money back! I cant stand people who do this kind of stuff to scam people out of money, until the consumer is actually on to them, and then they play games for another few weeks to get more money. That’s a total sham!
Great App For Simple Projects
by TheWayItIs! on 2018/10/27 02:38
I love having an app that allows me to make social media ads from my phone. I take my mock-up or picture, and I write in sale dates, discount codes etc. wish it were a bit more intuitive though. I haven’t found a way to edit a previously completed project. I don’t want to start over, I just want to change the date or replace the words Good Friday with the words Cyber Monday. I love the collection of fonts and color choices. I love how you can take text on a photo and animate it. It’s relatively easy to create professional looking ads.
Great app but...
by Jdeib on 2018/06/02 00:54
This is an overall great app! It is a really fun past time if your bored. And can serve as a advertisement starter. However I must complain about the prices. I know that your company has to make money to keep it going but $1 a week seems a bit much especially if you only use it at the most once a week. As a suggestion maybe lower it to the amount of times you use it charge an amount. But otherwise this is a really great app that has lots of features (if you upgrade to your subscription) I highly recommend!!!😃
The WORST APP EVER! DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!!
by Persona 2.0 on 2018/10/04 19:31
Two years ago I downloaded Font Candy+ for $1.99 and it was amazing, after the new IOS update the app became useless. Then I had to download it again because I need it for projects. It was easy to use and didn’t need much tutorial for getting a 🔥 image. Now they say I have to pay $1.99/week? That’s BS. That’s $50 a year! The most popular apps don’t even cost that much. Don’t download this app. Don’t waist your money or storage on this SCAM! They know that they had the best product and they’ve taken advantage of consumers. This business will fall into bankruptcy. I will tell everyone I know not to use this app or any app by Easy Tiger. You’re scamming people! Shame on Apple for allowing this. You’ve just lost a customer.
Please give the option to edit past projects
by GirrrlRae on 2019/05/27 13:50
I love this app! I have used it for probably 2 years as for promo & various projects. I pay for the extra features & appreciate the variety of fonts & other features! My ONLY complaint is not being able to edit my past projects. Sometimes I flub a name or date & I have NO way to fix it other than starting over which is such a bummer! If y’all could add that one feature it would be greatly appreciated.
Declined Functionality
by Mimi J7 on 2021/08/20 19:19
Not sure what happened with FontCandy since they started charging for it in Dec. The app often crashes & I have to delete it and reinstall. In doing so I loose all of my templates. I have to do this about twice a week!!! And the option to import a font isn't working either...! Maybe the designers thought that adding a sleeker interface would justify the new charges - but it doesn't if we loose functionality. Aug. 20: the app always crashes when I try to add artwork. I have to remove the app & reinstall to add artwork & in so doing - I loose all my templates. Functionality has declined since Font Candy started charging! Isn't the opposite supposed to happen?! Looking for another app - post haste!
It happened to me as well, Cleo!

Except it’s not just one app I left behind on my iPhone 6S Plus, there were more than a dozen that I’m no longer able to use on my iPhone XR. Btw, clicking Restore as the developer suggested didn’t help me one bit, not on any of the apps I once loved and used every day. This is more than an aggravation, in my opinion it’s a ripoff. Our fatal error was getting new iPhones. That’s not fair. Life is hard enough without this happening. For some reason app developers have become extremely greedy so I too said goodbye. No longer using this app every day, nor am I recommending it to everyone on Facebook. That was free advertising but we don’t get anything free. We get punished for getting new iPhones.
I used to love this app
by Artsybethy on 2019/05/20 15:08
I have been using Font Candy for years now and purchased the full version for several dollars when I first got it. The app then kept crashing and freezing so I recently went ahead and deleted and reinstalled this program. The good news was that it seemed to fix the glitching BUT now its wanting me to pay weekly for what I have already paid for when I originally purchased the app. I get subscription services when there is a lot of new content constantly but there is only a few new things that I can live without and now so many of the same options I was previously enjoying through my paid app is now available only in the “pro” subscription for $1.99 a week. This is ridiculous. If you want to make a subscription service then by all means you have the right to, but do so with new exciting content and don’t take away things from people who have already paid for the app and now tell them its not enough that you paid once, you need to pay weekly to have the same services.
Super laggy at times
by ThomasMCDMarvel on 2017/11/30 01:14
I love this app. It has been a real good tool for me to use. But oh my. I am about to throw my phone across the room. The app has been super laggy lately, crashing all the time, and it’s so annoying. It’s gotten to the point where I don’t even want to use the app. I go to it thinking “Ugh I don’t want the lag but I have to use the app. Dreading this.” Please fix this, to help I have an Iphone 7 that works with every app but this one, so it must be the app.
Crashing Galore
by StephMartin26 on 2018/11/27 04:58
This has been my go-to app since I started my blog and I even PURCHASED their other app for more fonts etc. because I loved it so much. I’m not usually one to write reviews on apps or even products but it has gotten to the point of aggravation with this app. I PAID for their app and still it crashes and stops working and I hadn’t had an update in a while. As a paying customer I expect better service, especially since I use this for my blog. If you can save the money, I would unless they’re going to fix the app. I initially checked on the reviews to see if others are having the same problem and they are. It isn’t just me! Please fix this app.
Honestly good
by krt00 on 2018/07/02 06:57
I don’t write reviews often. In fact, I never do. But I’ve been using font candy for a long time and I’m so impressed with what this free app can do. The only problem I have is that in the photos the App Store provides, there is a layering effect going on where the words can seem to go behind people, etc.- and as far as I know, this is unachievable on the app. :( but I imagine it’s very difficult, so I won’t hold it against them.
I love this app but......
by Breezita love on 2018/03/30 08:34
This is or was my favorite app ive had it for yrs i payed to have the watermark removed and unlock all features it was great and all of a sudden it started crashing so i thought maybe i need to update the app so i go to app store and i cant find it on my purchased app list what i do find is that now its a subscription with a weekly payment! i feel that is very unfair to all of us that had already payed long ago for the pro version.. we should be able to keep it unlocked with all features after all that is what we payed for in the first place!! Y'all have to fix this! 1 star for now until im able to use all my features
Unethical Practices
by Carl Ja on 2021/09/22 15:05
So I’ve used Font Candy for a few years and I’ve used the previous versions. I paid to have the font Candy logo off of my materials. The company has redesigned there format (not a problem) but now they won’t honor my previous purchase. They are suppose to restore purchases and they won’t. That’s bad business practices and I’m actually shock that Apple don’t know about this. If you pay for something it’s yours unless the app or service is no longer in existence. I’m not paying 1.99 a week for a service or item I should be able to restore. Restore purchase button is there for a reason guys. Smh. I will report to Apple!
I am extremely disappointed.
by YummyRamune on 2018/07/08 20:45
Until today, I used this app a minimum of 6 times per week. It was my favorite photo editing app. I updated my phone about a week ago and the app practically stopped working. I searched for an update and couldn’t find one, so I tried to delete it and re-download it. As soon as I re-downloaded it, I tried to restore my purchase of FontCandy+ and I couldn’t. Instead, I was being asked to pay a monthly fee... despite that I’ve already paid for this app... I’m so disappointed and frustrated to know that I’ll have to find a different app for editing. I won’t be using any more products developed by this company.
F@$k your subscription.
by Jcnix55 on 2019/08/26 03:49
I paid hard earned money for the “ad free version” (font candy +) in 2016, which is no longer receiving updates, no longer appears in the app store, it is basically unusable with today’s updated phones. I expect some sort of support over the long run for the money I paid. The new version, while it functions beautifully and as expected, requires a weekly subscription fee to remove the ads from the produced images. I say screw the subscription, at least let me pay one time to take the ugly ad stamp away. I cannot and will not recommend this app to anyone anymore unless something changes.
Poor communication, too expensive
by seamunki on 2018/02/18 22:38
I had the Pro version of this app before it turned into a WEEKLY subscription. Charging .99 per WEEK means you as a casual user, including teenagers and children, are paying over $50 EVERY YEAR to edit your own Instagram photos. Some users are reporting the charge is $1.99 per week... $100 yearly? Really? I have sent 4 messages so far about the paid subscription I had, which I am now unable to use after upgrading my iOS, and have so far only been told to “renew my subscription.” NO THANK YOU. The free service is useless with 15 second ads and ugly watermarks on my photos. You were great. Too bad.
I’m bummed
by B Paige on 2019/07/18 13:18
I bought the app a few years ago and I even upgraded to the one time pay so I didn’t have a watermark, etc. Now, as I’m getting a new device, it seems that the subscription is the only way to get the things I already paid for.. The whole reason I picked this app over others in the long run was because I didn’t have to use a subscription — I found the one time pay worth it. I don’t want to pay monthly for something I use just for work related photos..
What happened to the old version?
by Sugareesweets on 2021/02/21 20:03
I’ve been using this app to add a signature to my pics for years with no problems until a few days ago when it would crash when I uploaded a photo. When I went to check for an update I can’t even find it in the App Store...what I did find was the SAME exact app with a new color logo. So I downloaded it. It’s exactly the same as the previous one EXCEPT I’ve already paid for the upgrades to the old version. So you expect me to repay for the same services I’ve already paid for because you got new look?!?
Can’t restore. Too many ads
by UNHAPPYPHOTO on 2017/11/15 09:13
First off, without an in-app purchase, ALL THE ADS renders this app USELESS!!! If that’s not bad enough, I CANT RESTORE my purchase! I had purchased the unlock all package previously. I rarely write reviews, unless I’m strongly impressed or STRONGLY DISAPPOINTED. I don’t spend money on apps often and it just really ticks me off that I wasted money on this one, even though i have not used it in a long time, and it was on my previous phone, Ive purchased other apps, for my daughter, never had a problem restoring purchases, up to years later on multiple devices.
Love - with one exception
by K'lyn Paris on 2017/12/10 16:47
I absolutely love this application. It does everything that I want it to do. My only complaint is the subscription only option. I would be willing to pay $20 for this application if I didn’t have to subscribe to it. (As long as there were regular updates of course.) $48 a year is a bit outside my budget. That is my only complaint. Great job guys!
No response from company - app is not working and I paid for the upgrade
by Foster art on 2020/09/16 02:19
Hey guys, I tried to reach out via email and your social media before posting my review. Unfortunately there has been no response. The app does not open. I only see a spinning wheel and have used the same images and fonts for years. I can’t even find FontCandy + on the App Store to leave my review there as that is the app I upgraded/paid for. I’m desperately hoping that you can respond as I’d like to complete my back to school images and text. If I ever hear back from you I’ll change my review, but currently I’m telling everyone DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!
They Broke the app
by rgreen1234 on 2021/05/20 22:41
I have used and paid for font candy for years, this new update not only wiped out years of saved templates but made the app unusable, after too much use and auto saving templates it completely crashed. Won’t open. Won’t work. Also the ability to maneuver clipart is clunky and a difficult to expand, the previous versions were seamless. The BIGGEST issue is they took away color options and put in a terrible color bar with no way to match colors as there is no number codes or individual color options. They made it black, sleek looking and portrait mode, designing in portrait is terrible. I mean terrible, like they broke the easiest most diverse app on IOS. I’ve paid them hundreds to lose everything and customer support told me “oh well”. Don’t use this app, if you pay for it stop your subscription, they basically threw out 2 years of work I PAID to have saved and gave me a broken app in return.
Could be better
by Gracie Trey on 2019/02/11 15:34
I had this game for a little while and I have to say it was pretty boring. Just me as a person thought it was really boring. Also it was always crashing! So annoying. I couldn't be on the app for ten minutes without it crashing. The last thing I had a problem with is that every time I went on there was really offensive ads. Scary ads with creepy stalker people and ads with s*x. So please fix all of these things and take away those ads.
New app makes everything difficult.
by Junk Banter on 2021/06/28 22:27
I’ve been a paying customer for over 4 years, using the app to add quick text to my Instagram posts. The new re-design makes simple things like re-sizing, re-positioning, and re-coloring text way more difficult than it should be. All I try to do is access a previous template and move the text somewhere near bottom of the image. This is nearly impossible because the “confirm” button is lower than the actual text, and disappears when you get to the bottom edge. I actively hate using this app now where it used to be a life-saver.
Keeps crashing
by Preston owen on 2020/12/11 11:07
Great app but it kept crashing, I just paid for it too. Re downloaded it which fixed the problem but now it’s saying I have to pay again to remove the water mark ? Seriously give me a break. I just paid for it to not work properly and had to redowmlaod it just be charged again.
Changing the Rules
by LHWilliamson on 2019/05/23 20:39
I already paid several dollars for a lifetime subscription to this app... now you’re telling me I have to pay 1.99 a WEEK for the same content I’ve been using for years... pretty lame guys. I would be willing to pay for special font packages on an a la carte basis as new material is released, but asking customers who have already paid to now start paying differently for the same system they’ve been using for years is ridiculous. This was my go to app for adding fonts for the past 5+ years but I will now be looking for a new one. Not a good business model.
App Works Great...Customer Service Non-Existent
by Ty Clarke 86 on 2021/03/18 02:55
The app is great. I paid for the pro version and used it for years on my iPhone. I then upgraded to another iPhone recently and when I tried to restore my purchase, the app told me I would need to repay...for the same app I already paid for. I reached out to the customer service team and was told they would “look into it.” That was 8 days ago. No communication since. Extremely disappointing. I’ll be using a different app from now on.
Be Cautious
by Kate Koskinen on 2018/03/16 12:39
I loved this app. It was my favorite thing to use when coming up with cute and quirky things for social media. That is, until I got a new phone and had to download the app all over again. I already paid for the premium to remove the watermark & get some of the other features. Why the hell would I pay $1.99 A WEEK to have features I already had when I purchased it the first time around? Doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me, and it definitely is not good business practice. No app is work $2 a week.
Nothing works!!
by LLSlush on 2020/11/06 21:16
I’m not sure what’s going on with this app but it is completely unusable. I just have the free version but every time you try to do anything (change font, change color, size, etc.) it basically freezes and you can’t leave that editing feature to go edit something else. The check mark button to tell it you’re done using that feature either doesn’t do anything, or pulls up an ad for their premium version that you can’t get rid of. I tried closing the app and opening again and it just makes you start all over.
When it works, it’s a fantastic app.
by I. Kang on 2021/08/12 16:51
5 stars if it didn’t crash so frequently. It always crashes when I go in to “add artwork” and it’s a bit aggravating considering I primarily use this app to add text to photos/edits. I literally have to uninstall and then reinstall, which gets wouldn’t be so bad if I didn’t have to keep re-downloading text fonts cause don’t don’t carry over to the reinstall. Even after you restore purchase. Important inconveniences that add up.
They ruined it
by scoop peabodu on 2021/05/26 15:22
App use to be very easy and functional, upgrade is total crap. How do make a interface less intuitive I’ll never know. Moving fonts around is impossible, font shadows are horrible and render font unreadable. Sizing is next to impossible and grabs background instead of font 90% of the time ... color fills are muted, just a total crap upgrade. I’ve been using this app for 4+ years and I’m never coming back to it.. having watermarks now after paying to have them removed before the upgrade ... if I could give it negative stars I would. Do not download
Good App, but unfair.
by CheckPlease12 on 2018/05/30 01:52
I’ve had FC for a very long time, and I eventually bought Font Candy +. It’s an amazing app that I use almost daily for edits and covers. However, upon realizing that the app that I have has been crashing consistently, it’s telling me that I have to download the new app and get a new subscription. I don’t think it makes sense for someone who had full access to the previous installment to have to pay for the same thing they had again.
Crashes since last update
by crise125 on 2018/11/20 13:46
When app worked I’d give 5 stars but since update 1 Star Ever since the last update the app will crash 30 seconds after loading. I use this app all the time for my small online business and have the paid version. It’s my go to app for all my graphic needs. It’s becoming tiresome to delete the app completely and re-download it only to have to do it again the next time I open it.
what happened to fontcandy+
by witchingh0ur on 2020/11/16 16:23
I paid for the Plus version of this app a few years ago to use for my business. That version now doesn’t exist in the app store and whenever I attempt to use it, it crashes. Now it seems that Fontcandy has decided to switch to a subscription-based service. I’m pretty annoyed that I paid for Fontcandy+ and now can’t use it without it crashing and instead have to spend more money on a subscription if I want to keep continuity with my previous projects.
So Disappointing ... Greedy Developers
by Shakasis on 2020/05/15 05:31
I paid full price for the pro version of this app a while back and now they are charging $1.99 a week after I already paid for professional use. This was by far one of my most favorite apps to use for fonts but this is just greedy on the developers part. I deserve a full refund for the price I paid for pro because this is ridiculous. Yes all my fonts are there after restoring my purchase... but why should I have to pay weekly for pro when I already paid the flat rate. This is greed to the hundredth power!!!
