Photolettering: An app for captioning on the quick

Captioning on the quick

If you’re a meme-maker or just find that a photo you’ve taken is worth only 995 words, then you may be looking for a quick captioning app to add that extra pop to your snaps. Photolettering is one of many apps that lets you write quick text annotations to your pictures in a variety of fonts and styles. But before you rush out and download, it’s worth noting that although the app is free, it does require you to pay for some of its extra fonts. So if you’re looking for a wide variety of options without having to pay more, you’re out of luck here. Free, for iOS devices.
