Fonta adds some really impressive stamps and text to your iPhone photos

Photo editing is great fun, and with Fonta you have all the tools you need, along with layering options and more, to help you create fantastic finished products from your snaps. The app uses simple design to give you the tools you need. Pick a photo and you can add one of a small number of filters, insert text and customise it with transparency and fonts, and even add borders and other stamps.

The controls are all relatively easy to find, but they could be spread out a little to take advantage of the iPhone 5s’ larger screen. Each tool is accessible from a menu that sits over the photo on the right of the screen. Tap one of these tools and its more detailed controls appear at the bottom of the screen, but there is always plenty of empty space that could have been used more effectively to hold other controls, or expand the ones you have.

Still, we were really impressed by the quality of the editing tools, which have some great options. Text can be recoloured, made transluscent, and even erased or painted in around items in your photo. We also liked the simple photo editing tools; you won’t find fifty filters, but the few that there are look great and help you focus on the other tools. It’s a great way to get more from your photos.

Rated 5 out of 5

An app that’s good fun thanks to a combination of great effects, powerful tools, and a straightforward interface.
