Love the simple and elegant way to annotate

This is one seriously terrific little app. I love how simple and easy it is use. And annotations are equally elegant in design. That’s all I think you want this app to do, right? Then mission accomplished! I like the simplicity of either black or white. Too many choices in color, font size, etc. would make the overall image way too busy. And if your image is already busy, then adding text and pointers in different colors would just clutter it up. What do people want next? Cute gimmicky cheesy stickers? Geesh, people! There are plenty of those kinds of apps if you want to junk up your image instead of annotating an image for added context. Nice job, Tinrocket!

Wonderful little app

I love this app! When i need to add some text or labels to a photo, this app does it with ease and style. I love the options it provides for the pointing styles.

The only thing i find a little difficult is being accurate with where to place the pointer, as my finger is resting right above it. It takes a few tries to get it just right. Perhaps there is a way to adjust this by expanding the pointing arrow when moving or manipulating it? Not sure if it’s clear what i mean.

Anyway, keep up the great work!

LOVE this app!

I use this app all the time and it works perfectly- I love it for annotating projects for tutorials - I even took a photo of all my prescriptions & supplements and annotated it so I could have a comprehensive reference for myself and my doctor! The only things I wish it had were perhaps the ability to have text in a highlighted box, and unlimited characters ...kind of a bummer when it won't let you finish a sentence. Thank you for this amazing app - looking forward to updates!
