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.

Transparent image over solid image option no more?

With the latest version, how come all of a sudden I can no longer use images with transparent background (.png or .gif) over a jpeg? Tried all blending options in the “blend” section but nothing seems to work. This is the main reason why I use the app. Can someone help?

Hanged App

Please, fix the problem as soon as possible, because while I am editing some pictures, it's hanging, like you can't tap anything, I am tapping the 'Done' and it is not responding! It's hanging! But to configure it when it when the first time it happened, I tried to move my assistive touchpad to make sure if my screen is hanging or the game and the assistive touchpad moved! The game is hanging any time, it's a major problem because when you're almost finish on what you're doing on the app and it hanged? You need to restart all over again! Yes, you have the 'Reload Previous State' but the only text you've typed is the only thing that'll reload, not the whole thing you've do! Please fix that problem, it's irritating.
