Great app with room to grow

I love how simple to use, and useful this can be to annotate my photos. It feels like snag-it and jing but for a phone. Add text, arrows, and emojis to photos. What I'd like to see next are some more serious options like an elegant signature to a photo that's a bit less cartoonish. I could do this in Photoshop but some basic tools to change the style of the text would still be fantastic.

five star experience

Knee-deep into my annotating work and I'm anxiously anticipating an in-app purchase that I'm REQUIRED to make and nothing pops up. Five-stars just for that experience: I used all the tools and did what I had originally wanted to get done. I ended up acccomplishing the goal that was the first reason I looked for an annotating app. I'm veryy happy. Thank you. **Possible bug (or just a non-feature): I wasn't able to see an alert that lets me know my image is saved after saving it. With that being said, my image was successfully saved to my camera roll each time I tried.

Has all the basic but practical tools

This is quite simple to use, and has all the drawing, arrow, text and stickers functions. Quite sufficient. The only 2 issues is that if I choose drawing with my fingers, it is almost impossible to get draw a dot like the little dot of the exclamation point “!” or the dot for the letter “j” for example, since dotting will bring up the delete/eraser function. And also I wish I can call up the tools not just from my photo albums - it will be great if I can use on anything that I pull up on the screen, whether it is a rich text doc or pdf or notes in my contacts or a web site page I am viewing ....that will be super ...
