One of the best apps I’ve ever downloaded
I haven’t had this app long, but I already love it. I’m an author, and I write on Wattpad a lot. My stories get a lot of revenue and I come out with new parts and new stories all the time, and previously, I had to use regular photo and video editing apps with like, fifteen text options and the only things you could customize was the opacity, color, size, simple things like that. This took it to an absolutely new level that I love. I saw the app and thought, “Over 100 fonts? You probably have to pay for 75 of them if you really want it.” But no! It literally is 100 fonts, maybe more! I will most definitely use this app more in the future. This is probably the best app I’ve ever downloaded, to be honest. I can’t tell you how often I’m disappointed with covers I make because I didn’t have the proper fonts I’d envisioned, and some, I’ve literally hand written on drawing apps because I couldn’t get a font! I’m so happy with this app you have absolutely no idea. Thank you!!!!!

Thank you for this app!!
I never write reviews but this is one of the few apps that I use regularly & love. I am so grateful for it! It doesn’t necessarily have to be used with a traditional pic- I’ve downloaded backgrounds offline (Zedge,etc.) and tons of fonts and have used them to make everything for my small business- website,FB,Google ads, business cards, promo coupons, menu Board etc..etc.. & it’s super easy to upload whatever I do. I could never have done any of it without this app-starting out I have NO money or experience. It has made all the difference in the world for me! It has been better & easier than anything else I’ve tried to use.

Was Mostly Great. Now Less.
Very useful in many ways short of zooming into the project when necessary (you never could). However, latest update (?) now imposes a gaudy immovable white watermark logo in the right corner and too bad if that interferes with what you are doing. This reflects a less serious attitude on the part of the developers of this ap while stubbornly imposing an ad and brand for the ap on your creativity/project. Recommend allowing a switch to turn that off as an option at least as I suspect many will simply leave it on unless it’s interfering. But clearly the priority is their sales, not your creativity. Now I find myself looking for something less frustrating, more respectful of the user, and easier to use (maybe with a zoom feature?). Maybe whoever decided the stupid watermark is now necessary should be made to walk around with it on their forehead for a week or two.

Really great, but I got one problem
This app is really good. Even without buying its full features I really love it. It’s very helpful specially on the Warrior Cats Club I have. It’s really great to make Character Challenge announcements and also just really easy to use and has amazing results. But, recently I’ve tried to open the app to make the new character challenge for my club but the app would kick me out. I’d open it again. Kicks me out. I turned off my phone and opened the app again. Kicked me out. I’m very frustrated but thankfully I can still use the one on my iPad. I’m not sure why it kicks me out now but if it’s a bug, please take a look at that. It would be very helpful. This is overall a very good app and i’d recommend it to all my friends

Impossible to move or re size items and constant cra
This app was awful. It kept crashing and not saving my progress eventually crashing every time I tried to open my project when I was almost done with it after struggling with the app over and over. Also- you can’t move items easily or re size them. The selection tools seemed like they just weren’t specific enough to match where I was selecting on the screen. So I had to keep trying and trying but I kept working not wanting to lose my progress. The layout and functionality was very easy to use which is why I chose this app, but once I got started I was immediately frustrated by all of its shortcomings. Wish I could have those hours of my life back that I wasted in frustration… I assume if you paid for the subscription these problems wouldn’t exist, but I don’t suggest it. Glad I was reminded to cancel the free trial at least 🙄

The Free is Good. But, the upgrade is WOW!
As part of my daily devotional, I like to create and share illustrated Bible verses. There is a bit of a learning curve, but this is a very satisfying app for that purpose! And, I can go back to any project, reopen it, and tweak it to my heart’s content. Sharing with a large variety of social media is built on. I’ve not even used any of the many templates! There is SO much here!! I could go on and on, but I’d say give the free version a spin. Do give yourself time to experiment with the large variety of features. You may need no more. Or, like me, you might see this as a professional tool, worth the upgrade.

Loved it until it quit copy & pasting for me !
This app hands down was my favorite for creating motivational tags I’d use on my Home Screen being able to add fonts was even better but for some reason copy and past no longer works and when you try to remove the text here it shuts down completely. When this app works it’s beyond 5 stars but as it is for me currently it’s non functional so I’ve canceled my subscription and won’t renew until this app gets fixed or is compatible with the latest apple update . Which is a shame because I really loved this app !

I have never ever left a review before! However I have to share that this app is really efficient. It does exactly what it says.. I used the free version then paid for a week.. awhile back.. yesterday I accidentally clicked on the year subscription and thought I would just have to eat it.. but I went ahead and requested a refund .. in less than 24 hours I have my money back! I’m really dumbfounded and super pleased. This kind of customer service is a rare and wonderful thing.. THANK YOU SO MUCH! I may just resubscribe because of this kind of kindness! ❤️❤️❤️

My pictures
I am a photographer of nature, and have been for 9 years now. I like to take pictures of clouds and sunsets, sunrises, weird shapes in clouds, anything of nature. And this app I’m using to put my name in my pictures I love! I like all the different ways you can make the words! And I can hide my name because how you can dime the words, and that’s cool! So if anyone tried to say they took my picture, I can prove I really took it, and I can prove where I took every picture. So this is an awesome app and you should get it if you want to put your name in your pictures.

I’m LOVING this app. I usually find a problem or two as soon as I start using the app, but I haven’t really found any. But there is just one, little, thing. It feels exceptional. It feels like exactly what I was hoping for. And that’s the problem.😬 Some people want to feel/be surprised. 😲 Is just a nice feeling when your like “ Oh! Wow that’s a nice thing there it’s nice how they put that there! I wasn’t gonna use it in my wallpaper but, it’s so nice... WHY NOT? It’s just like that one thing there to fill in the empty space you know? Well, that’s all I had to say! Byeeee😆😜

Now I have the app and it’s just great! This is the dream app and you should get it right away! If there is something you need that you can’t find on any other app then no wonder because this is the app where it all is! Get it right away! I may never delete this again it is just so good!

Saved me!
Long ago I had a program on Windows that did EVERYTHING. Then the owners quit maintaining or upgrading and it just quit working. Today, I absolutely had to get something put together for my Granddaughter and her lost puppy! No pressure, right? This app came through like a champ and it was simple and ‘almost’ perfect. Just some hoops to jump to get it from my iPad to my printer ( problem, not the app by any means!). I somehow looked like the classic ‘Grandpa can do ANYTHING’! Thanks guys, I feel I owe you something, this is too good to be free!

Great app for quotes
In this app, you can easily add text to your photo, I am very pleased with this app, I try to use Pixel Lab, but whenever I finish dictating the text, it kept on crashing, and it annoyed me very much because I love that app and I wanted an apple I could add text to my photo, then I went searching on the App Store, and I found this app, it was 4+ and I was nine so I thought it would be OK, and it was, and soon after I started adding beautiful text to my photo,thx

Best yet
I’ve gone thru/deleted a lot of apps but this is the only one that I actually like & use regularly. I have made everything for my small business including my signs, menu board & marketing items. I’ve referred a lot of ppl who were looking for something to use. On a side note- I would like to know how to delete a downloaded font, (not one of my subscription ones) I had a couple that downloaded multiple times & it’s driving me nuts having them on there

Within the last three to six months, the colors change from what they appear to be when you select on make your own color and when you open it or type on i, it is a completely different color! It is terrible to try to match the same color. I have had the regular Add Text for over five years and like I said this just started happening when I was updated to the Write on Photos Version. I am very sorry I had mine on Automatic to update new versions. I have now turned the Automatic system to off!

It’s great
I don’t enjoy writing reviews, but this is simple, easy to use and has so many options so there’s something for everyone. It’s not like every other app asking you to spend 20 bucks a month to put words on a picture or a dollar to remove ads on something you’re only going to use once. I wish you could adjust word alignment and I’ve had the pull tab freeze but other than that I don’t have any issues with this app that I can think of.

Wrong colors saving
Hello I’m a long time user of this app and have made some great things with it and a huge fan, but recently whenever I make something that has a white outline or shadow then save it, it comes out as a light blue then I go back into the app and its like it automatically changed it to blue, is there anything I can do about this? If I uninstall and reinstall it will all my work still be in the projects?

Don’t INSTALL Limitations on Uninstalling
It hid itself from purchased apps. Once I had it installed I couldn’t find it anywhere in my purchased apps. That’s a major RED flag for me. Most legitimate apps are proud to show themselves in your listing of purchased apps. I looked all over my purchased apps three entire times. Even looked for the Icon. Not a first clue of the program anywhere. The only way to delete the app is to long press on it and choose remove. Even after I had removed it there wasn’t even anything listed on programs not available on your system. That was the second RED flag. Made it near impossible to actually read the program reviews.

Easy to use!
I couldn’t use Microsoft word without a subscription. I could use basic features but I couldn’t make nice invitations for a party. Even if I could it was really difficult to use on my phone. So this app saved my party from having a boring text only. It’s easy and so many fonts and other things free! I’m thinking about upgrading to the premium version since it’s so user friendly!

Too Good To Be True?
At first glance you probably thought the same thing I did. There’s probably pay walls and a lot of hidden features that are blocked off until you sign up with an account or something, that is NOT the case. For free this is the best photo editing app I can recommend if you want to create text on images. Photoshop on this AppStore doesn’t even have the same level of text customization that this app provides.

This app was perfect for making all the custom posters for my family band, quartet, and any events in general, but only having it for 2 weeks, whenever I press the create new project, it crashes out of the app and I’ve tried deleting and then installing again, I’ve updated my iPhone 11, and I’ve refreshed the app, but it doesn’t seem to work. Please update the app soon, maybe that will work? I’m very sad that the perfect app I found didn’t last me very long. I hope there are ways to fix it! Thank you and hope to here from you soon.

This is the best editors app I have used so far
I have tried so many apps and so far this is the only one that is easy to use and you don’t have to pay for. You shouldn’t have to pay money to get a couple words on a picture I mean it’s not like they are printing it for you. To all you editors who use apps like these the apps that usually come up at the top of your screen are the most expensive and it’s the same as this one

Great! But one problem
It was amazing I got exactly what I wanted and loved all the extra features, but I really wanted to be able to add emojis or stickers when I hit next not just save to photo library. I know it’s only a text editor but I was looking forward to cool effects, I was writing my name with a word above it but all I really was looking for was an app with text editing like this AND maybe some cool effects like stickers filters emojis, but overall I liked it but I only got to do text effects.

I really enjoy this app and I love all of its features, but I’d love to be able to turn off the snapping of the text boxes.

So, your app is really good for that stuff, whoever reads this, I really recommend downloading this app and you will have fun with it. And, if you’re a writer you could get an idea about a book cover, with the angle of the words and pictures you can paste in. Yeah, I really do recommend this app!

Great but recent color issue
This app is wonderful! I’ve been using it for over a year and it’s the best I’ve tried. Recently, though there’s a problem with the shadow colors, borders on texts, font colors, overlays- it changes all of the colors that I choose to a turquoise color. I’ve found ways to get around this, but it still would be easier if this issue was fixed.

Amazing and Useful App
This is an amazing app! Very useful for thumbnails or even just a cover for something. I for sure see this app having a great future ahead. But the only thing it needs is a tutorial, I found it easy but others may not. Even if there was something that said: ‘Welcome to Add Text! Here you can add text to photos, give it a shadow for detail, or do almost anything you can imagine! Would you like to learn more, start a tutorial, or skip?’ For learn more: Wonderful choice! Here at Add Text you let your creativity expand, whether it is adding a shadow or making a photo, we got you covered! And be sure to report any bugs or concerns to the development team.’ And you can do what you want for the tutorial. But thank you so much for reading.

Great app, but changes font color
I’ve paid for this app for over a year now. I use it all the time and love it. Unfortunately, recently I’ve noticed that when I save my graphics to my phone, the font color changes. Unless my font is black, the font will change to a light blue every time I save it. This is super frustrating. If it wasn’t for this flaw, I would give the app 5 stars. I hope they look into this glitch.

Solid. But needs some work.
The app tends to lag hard when writing anything of decent length, at least on my IPhone. Combine that with absolutely no spellcheck and no ability to zoom in and you have a overall frustrating experience. But at the same time I’ve yet to see a program with a more flexible and accessible layout. Nonetheless the monthly subscription is just a kick in the pants on top of this unfortunate sundae.
