Crashed at download

Creates great photo art, but crashes when I try to save photo.

Best results by far...

I love making high quality typographic portraits for my projects without having to spend a whole day on Illustrator. Having tried virtually every other app out there I can confirm that this is the only one that produces professional results with little effort and time. Tweak the different parameters in the Custom section until you get the desired result. Best to start with a high res. image and save as png which can be enlarged further -if needed- using another photo app like Pixelmator, without loss of quality.

I've been looking for an app that could do this for a long time. In the past I have something similar, but the Dev didn't update it and it died with iOS 11. I am currently using this app with iPadOS 14.2 and no problems.

I'm so glad I stumbled on this app, it turns your pictures into a word salad. Just for a laugh, I took a Wordfoto processed image and ran it through again. Got a real groovy image that had large words with tiny words inside each word.

The software does limit you to 10 words or phrases of no more than 12 letters, so no long sentences. It would be nice to have an option that could raise that limit or modify the font sizes.

Other than that, a masterpiece of programming that adds a real element of fun to any photos.
