= FAQ =
Q: Can I sell the images I create with Phoetic?
A: Yes, what your create with Phoetic is yours. You can do with that as you please, including selling the images for profit. The templates included with Phoetic can also be used commercially. Of course the right to sell the templates separately is excluded.
Q: I want to make a huge print; how do I make my image look good?
A: Share the word cloud as a PDF file. This file is stored as a vector image; it can be scaled without the results becoming pixelated. You can directly send this to your printer or export the file as an image at any desired resolution.
- [Workaround] Disable dark mode within the app (UI currently does not support dark mode well)
Ratings and Reviews
Pretty awesome, just one small issue
This app is pretty awesome, I have used it for making all sorts of things with my Cricut, but there is one thing I wish that could be changed. I wish that the words didn’t have to be so random, like that they could stay in the order that I wrote them, so you could actually read the song lyrics that I was putting into the image... if that makes any sense
Favorite word cloud generator!
This is, hands down, my favorite word cloud generator and I have several. It’s also the best priced!
With Phoetic, I have the most versatility over fonts, colors and pdf export layers with this app. If exporting using pdf, each word is editable with illustrator. Most apps, yeah, it’s vectorized, but it’s a flat image that can’t be altered.
Phoetic is by far the easiest to use for awesome results. I have others that are easy to use, but are very limited in shape and color choices.
It does have limitations (the reason I have other word cloud apps), like I can’t specify a specific word or phrase to be dominant in size. I have to regenerate the image until that randomly happens. I also cannot specify a location for the dominant sized word/phrase. For me those are the only draw backs and I just use a different app for that. Over all, this one is still the best.
**Now, I wish the developer would make An OS X desktop version.
Best word cloud / tag cloud app out there
In terms of word cloud apps, this seems to be the best one on the App Store. I’ve purchased the others... and this one gives the best results.
Exports as a high quality vector PDF (Emeds font)
Word spacing can be tighter than any other app.
Like how they handle font integration.
Colors are easy to deal with
Would be nice to randomize or size based on frequency
[Edit] I had originally said that the app doesn’t export high quality PDF’s. The developer has contacted me and sure enough, the app does in fact export vector based PDF’s. I have added this too the pros and adjusted my star rating.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the review! PDFs should be rendered as text, if the used font is vector based (practically all fonts except emoji) it should scale well for large prints. Note that the built-in print ordering always uses a high-resolution bitmap, since (unfortunately) our supplier does not support PDF. For best quality you should export as PDF and select a professional printer yourself. If you have problems with scaling the image please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can resolve the issue!
