Phonto supports only English (US), Chinese and Japanese, so when the priority of Chinese (or Japanese) in your setting was higher than English, Phonto would be launched as Chinese (or Japanese) mode.

To solve this problem…
1. Open the Settings app.
2. Choose 'English' in 'General' > 'Language & Region' > 'iPhone Language'.
3. Turn back your 'iPhone Language' to your favorite language.

Using iTunes, you can copy font files between your computer and Phonto on your iOS device.

1. Select your iOS device from the Devices section of iTunes.
2. Click the Apps tab and scroll down to the bottom of the page.
3. Select "Phonto" in the "File Sharing" section.
4. Drag and drop .ttf or .otf font files into "Documents".
5. Restart Phonto.

Such a brilliant app

I never usually rate apps at all but I think this one is so fantastic it’s worth a review!
Absolutely brilliant- easy to work with and simply laid out with lots of awesome features.

I work for a very small business and occasionally need to do very basic graphic design work for our Instagram and Facebook pages. This app hits all the marks.

One suggestion I would make is I find that when I save my work to my phone, it’s not as good quality as if I merely screenshot the page.

Another one is I would love to be able to save my work and come back to it later- I often get called away to answer the phone and will come back to find my work gone when I reopen the app!

Thank you!

A Must Have App

I use this app almost daily whether it is too build a slideshow, manipulate photos or create a picture with text on the go.

Combine it with the ‘Cut Me In’ App and the ‘Retouch’ App and it’s used becomes almost endless. This app is in a class of its own.

Big thanks to the developers for putting this together. 👍⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The only feature I would love to see added is the ability to zoom in and out.
