Pretty good 3/5
Free Options very limited but worth trying different texts.
App was great. Upgrade is confusing 5/5
I’m assuming the app is currently in the process of changing. When using it two days ago it wanted me to pay to upgrade, even though I paid for a download. Now today it says since I originally paid I’m automatically upgraded to pro. I hope this doesn’t mean they will continually charge me monthly for it.
Long Time User 5/5
One of my favorite apps of all time. I’ve been using it for years and have created incredible social media content for work. Easy, super simple to use and beautiful.
Love this App but... 3/5
By Lana Leslie
I love this app and use it a lot however I originally thought this was free with in-app purchases not a sneaky subscription that appears on my credit card for $5 a month. You have to make sure with all these apps that it’s not a subscription. Sometimes you find the info at the very bottom of the description page which is also often worded in a way that is confusing. But hey my fault! I didn’t read and reread and triple check. I would have been happy to buy extra fonts and all of that as I app purchases but with the limited amount of options and it being a subscription service, it’s not worth the $5 a month. In three weeks my subscription ends and that’s okay. I’ll miss it but I just don’t think it’s worth it.
By It's not your business!
Downloaded this app today and it seemed nice enough until you realize they are going to charge you $60 a year for something I might use three times total.
Love It! 5/5
I love how creative you can get and I absolutely love all the option. I’m addicted!!
Can get ride of there watermark. 1/5
I paid for program but now every picture has Work Swag on it!
Disappointed with Recommendation 1/5
I was recommended this app by someone who told me it cost a one time fee of $3.99. Came here to find out it now costs $60 per YEAR, can’t begin to say how disappointed I am at the price for what this app does, slap some text on an image. There are free programs that do x1000 that like Inkscape, gimp, krita, etc. I’d recommend looking into those. For what this app does, I would’ve paid up to a one time fee of $15, this subscription fee is completely unacceptable. Shame on the developers.
It’s ok 3/5
I like the app but I don’t like that I can’t add images. Or maybe I don’t know how.
You good but it could be better 4/5
By Marilyn Mendez
I brought the app. But it could go much better. I would put more fonts. I use this tool and Typorama for my design editing. The fonts could have more color to choose from. I love the gold ones, the black with different shades. And shadow !! Please add shadow for the fonts. The resolution could get better like Typorama. No matter how big I put the words , the image looks great. In swag, the bigger the font is , the worse it looks. And the option to type, it has a few bugs and it most imposible to work 3 types of fonts. For example I wrote two sentences on the background... if I want to add another , it keeps clicking on the same one. Making it imposible to add more texts without clicking on the edited texts. Sometimes I have to start all over again. It’s frustrating. Other than at. I love the app. I just wish it could be better.
Free but not actually free 3/5
The app is great for business and writers who want to share their work. However, it says free, doesn’t list a price elsewhere and then you randomly get charged $4.99. Not cool. If you’re going to charge people from something don’t say it’s free and then not say anything about a later charge.
The only thing I don’t like is pro
Doesn’t save 1/5
I deleted and redone loaded the app. It still won’t Save. Nothing happens.
One of my favorite apps 5/5
By The Ali Effect
I’ve been using word swag for my IG stories and I love it!
Doesn’t work now 3/5
I purchased this app over a year ago when it was $1! I has been using it for some time and when I upgraded my iPhone the app did not transfer and now it’s making me pay again, which is way overpriced.
Newest upgrade 1/5
By Rose Chat
Loved this app until the latest update. Now content keeps disappearing. Any help on this? I have removed and reinstalled. I am hoping this temporary.
Easy & Fun 5/5
Word Swag a day !
Used to be perfect 1/5
The app has been completely broke for weeks. Just a blank screen. I’m using the latest version of the app and my iPhone software is up-to-date. Previously was one of my favorite apps. Developers, please fix this!!!
By Wheels of Light
This has been a super awesome program until today unfortunately when I open the app it’s a completely black screen — is there a way you can fix it? (I’ve installed the latest update) thank you for helping—
A year user... 5/5
I was worried about the update having to pay for fonts that were free to me before, but now that that’s been fixed (thank you!) I can style my Instagram stories with ease. It’s a wonderful way to make your stories look and feel professional and visually appealing. Well done!
$5 / month?! 1/5
That's outrageous. Not even tiered options? I'm so disappointed. I may not even keep the app on my phone if it's gonna be such a random UI with all the Pro Only features I can't access in my face all the time. If it was $5-$10 per year, I'd smash that Buy button without hesitation. But this is just greedy and frankly, odd.
Loooove it! 5/5
By Ladii Wallk
By far my favorite design app
Lovely to work with. 4/5
This app is awesome, I like the styles and all the options they give you. So glad I bought this! Lots of apps give you free options if you like it and use it, buy it. That way subscriptions don't catch you flat footed. I bought this within 5 min of downloading it.
Super buggy now 1/5
By Many doodlez
Used to love this app and have used it for years, but after the recent update I no longer have my pro subscription and every time I try to restore it or click “more” the app crashes and it’s super frustrating. I feel like I should be able to use something I paid for, but it’s unusable now.
Updating my Review👍🏻👍🏻 5/5
Edit: Thank you for giving pro access to previous users who bought the app, and for replying quickly! Excited that I won’t have to give up one of my favorite apps☺️
Bought this app last year for $5. Severely disappointed to be losing my favorite fonts and have to redo my branding. Way to blindside your customers. Getting rid of this app because of the pure lack of integrity🙅🏼♀️👋🏻
I used to love this app 2/5
But since they went to a monthly subscription model I won't use it. I'd gladly pay a one time fee but they've gotten money hungry apparently... No way is paying $60/yr to use this app acceptable
Love it! 5/5
WordSwag I my favorite app to design easy and fast quotes and to add text to my pictures!!
Love love 5/5
Friend just to help me and we do words of for the year and I making every person I know a word I love love love this app
Donna’s Pearls of the Sea 5/5
By Donna's Pearls of the Sea
I just discovered this. I love it!!
Pretty great, except... 1/5
I love this app, but why can’t I buy it once instead of paying $5 a month? I’ve already paid for this, I should be grandfathered in. Fix that.
Love it. 5/5
By Tigress Torres
This app has come through on all the various flyers, announcements i needed to make ! The best part is i can do it on my phoebe and have my work look professional
No account section. 2/5
I like the formats. I didn’t realize you had to create a new one each time which is a pain for those times I’m wanting to keep the look but change the wording. Also, I can’t find anywhere to cancel the account. I don’t find it worth the monthly cost.
Good app 4/5
Works good just needs more fonts for the price
Too Expensive 2/5
I love this app, but no way can I justify paying $5 a month to use it. I don’t like any of the free choices.
Ummm $$$ 1/5
YOU DO NOT ADD THAT KIND OF VALUE TO THE MARKETPLACE.
The fact that you have the audacity to charge $5 A MONTH to remove your logo is ridiculous. It makes me want to make my own app as opposed to using. But ain’t nobody got time for that 😂
Not happy 2/5
So I absolutely love this app!! Perfect for me!! I used it to help with my marketing and create beautiful images! But when I switch to a new phone and had to re download the app I saw extremely disappointed to find that they wanted a monthly charge!!! I already bought the app previously and am not interested in a monthly fee!!! At this point the app is useless because it’s very limited to what I can do....I even sent an email to their customer support....
Really, Word Swag? 2/5
Update: Word Swag has now done the right thing and reinstated its original customers to their “pro” plan, but even still, it is not worth $5/mo for new users. Zero new features have been added, which means new users will be paying $5/mo for something I paid $5 for two years ago. I have since started using Typorama and it is much more full-featured.
Really, Word Swag? I PAID MONEY for this app, and now you’re taking it away from me, and expecting me to pay $4.99/mo for it? Nice cash grab. See ya never, Word Swag. Hello, Typorama.
Superb Customer Service! 5/5
I’ve always loved Word Swag and have used it for over 2 years. One of the many things I love about it is the updating and adding of really cool fonts and backgrounds.
Recently, I had the word swag app freeze, so I reached out to their team; I was impressed with the immediate response and help (they were in the process of updating the app). Other app developers can learn from and emulate their exemplary customer service.
Love but stopped working 1/5
I’ve been having this app for 2 years or so , I love it ! But it just stopped working ! As soon as I choose an image and skip the crop part , it doesn’t let me add text or even go back . I even deleted & reinstalled it . Bummer ..
New update and nothing works 1/5
LOVED this app but with the new update, nothing works. So frustrating.
Mine isn’t working at all with this fix! 🤮
Just downloaded and purchased the pro version and once I choose the crop option and it switches to add the text, it instantly freezes and won’t let me change/add text. Love the options, just would like to be able to use it.
Freezing with new update 4/5
This is usually a pretty good up but with the latest update, once you choose a program it freezes completely.
Used to love, now it won’t work 1/5
I’ve been using word swag for a few years and I’ve loved it! It has been my go to for many different projects. However, since updating my phone and the app (and getting upgraded to pro for being an original member) it now freezes and is unusable. Can not get it to work no matter how many times I load and unload it, and never had this problem before!
Will update this review to 5 stars once this is fixed, because it is a fabulous app when it actually works.
FROZEN APP DOESNT WORK 2/5
By Blondie 324
I just got this app today and it was working well, but now no matter how many times I close and reopen it, nothing is working. The whole app is frozen once you upload a picture. This bug needs to be fixed. You shouldn’t have to pay for something that doesn’t work.
Additionally a little more customization would be appreciated for certain fonts (getting to choose which you want to be big , where the line goes, etc.) and to be able to save a project to come back and work on it.
For as expensive as it is, they need to do better.
Smudge bug 1/5
1 star they cant fix a smudge bug that always appears on the corners of my pics and no middle line assistance when you try to align other words. App is ok but not worth it.
Freezing every time 3/5
On my iPad Pro 10.5 every time I open the app today it freezes and crashes!!!
My Go To App for Text on Photos 5/5
I’ve had this app for as long as I can remember. Back when it had only a few options. It has always been my go-to app for text on photos because it’s so easy. I use it for personal and business. Worth every penny especially if you use it for business.
The only option I would like is to be able to pick which line of the text I want a certain color. I can sometimes get it close to what I want, but sometimes it just misses the mark and can change the whole vibe of the feel I’m going for.
