I use this app a lot and each time I use it, I like it even more. Family fun app!

Perfect, Practical, Powerful!

Well designed interface, simple to use options, customizable balloons, intuitive color palette, background patterns and the ability to draw on the balloon are just some of its advantages.

I usually use it to draw arrows and add some text to my photos but several different balloon styles are perfect to create and share some funny images as well.

Mostly useful

Every year we design labels to be etched on our wine bottles for Christmas. This year we decided to try using this app to make the design. This program is quite easy to use, and will export to a PDF, a huge benefit.
Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be an easy way to have multiple pages, or to save a file or files to work on later. This means every time you open the program, or even switch back to it while it is still open, you have to start from scratch.
I would like to see the text choices presented a bit more traditionally, too. (Different fonts, and the ability to use italic or bold on a font, for example)
We hope to see some upgrades, and then we will use it for other design work.
