nice idea - one tweak to make it better

The quote designs in this app are super cool. Thanks to all the artists who made it possible. however, it would be so much better if you allowed access to your camera roll to add your own backgrounds. The selection is pretty limited.. otherwise i'd have given it 5 stars!

it's a great app and a lovely idea though.

This app is beautiful.

The artwork is very well done and such a beautiful concept. It makes it easy to remember to just give others a little bit of nice encouragement even when they are far away. And in our self absorbed busy environment
