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.

Amazing amazing amazing. Yes of course needs some better improvements soon but I think the developer has totally forgot that he has made an app so I never saw any update in this app since I downloaded it. Other than that it’s a great app and I am in love with it. Because it’s not getting any updates AT ALL so I’ve downloaded some other related apps to keep it going.

Best App to add text on images!

Have been using this for a while & I 100% recommend it. So many options to play with, Fonts, strokes, background, text shadow.
They have recently added a “blend” option which is a genius feature.
I still wish they include adding contours to text. It would make the app 100% complete.

Huge bug! Urgent! Extremely Urgent!

Earlier when I was adding any image if the image was without a background that it should be add as it is. But now when I add image who has no background shows me white colour in the background. This means, it is not allowing me to add any image without background. I could not perform my edits. Urgently need it to be sorted!
