    Post to Instagram...not really!

    11-17-17...wish you would update with just the ability to control aspect ration and image size, don’t change anything else :-) Really, it's a great app. However, if your intended final share location is Instagram, you cannot work with a square aspect ratio until after you have made your creation and then you have to zoom and crop out a percentage of your work. But still, a great app but I gave it a low score due to the restricted aspect ratio.

    Want my money back

    This is such a stupid app, doesn't solve any purpose. You can only type 11 words and then you have to type them again and again and then arrange them all in one sequence and align them. Such a headache. Can't see how this works for posting on social media. Apps are meant to help make it easy for you and not make ur work hard. Stay away from it unless u have a dyslexic child and want to teach him how to arrange words and sentences in order.

    Surprise feature

    I know that it's not technically what this app is for, but I use it to create iPhone wallpapers with my photos. I crop them and after editing the photos with the app I take a screenshot of it when the photo covers the whole phone. The results are good. It's a decent photo editor and you can move the text around and add it. I'm not much of a text person but this app has a surprising purpose for me.
