Let's face it, there is no shortage of photo apps for the iPhone or iPad. I think I have at least ten installed on my iPad.
So why did I pick Phonto?
1. it's easy to use. The interface has only three options when you open the program - menu, insert picture and save.
2. I just insert a photo and then double tap anywhere to insert text.
3. After the text is inserted, all of my options for editing show up in one place. I can quickly resize, change the color, rotate, edit my text, etc.
4. When my photo is complete I can save it to the camera roll or any number of apps on my device.
In just a few minutes I have a brand new graphic I can use in any number of apps, in my blog or on social media. Students can also use phonto to label pictures and then insert them in to a video creator, photo collage or slide show.
The app is free, but does have in app purchases. I've only used the free version and it's worked great for me.
