Font Candy app review: add text overlays to photos 2021



Font Candy by Easy Tiger Apps, LLC. is a photo editing app that allows you to place masks over your photos that contain text. The masks, found in this photo app, act as an overlay that can contain a catch phrase, captions, silly words, or whatever you like.

Take pictures right from within the app for adding text to photos or use ones in your Camera Roll. This overlay text on photos app has undergone some recent updates which have improved the overall functionality of this app. Let's examine Font Candy further and see if it's worth a download.

User Experience

Right from the get-go it’s obvious this app was created to be simple and quick to use. As soon as you launch it you're ready to take a photo or upload one of your own pictures from your Camera Roll.

The app does an excellent job walking you through the process from there as you edit your image and create the perfect text overlay. There is a tutorial in the app that will go over all the tools and features.

By the time you're done your picture you’ll be looking at something incredibly unique and creative.

This app has some great features. You can upload a picture from your Camera Roll or take a new shot right from within the app. There is a built-in camera with a timer so if you want you can even take a selfie. Once you've selected your picture you're ready to crop and scale it if you want to make adjustments.

When it comes to the fonts there are a variety of styles from which to choose.The developer has promised more to come in future updates. It's not just about fonts though, as you can also add a color wash to your text or the background image for a really creative look. The color was can be as bold and bright as you want, so go ahead and use your imagination here.

It should be noted that you're able to add multiple captions to a photo - it's not just one. When you're done you're ready to share your photo on Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, or Facebook.
