Spice up your Windows Phone photography with Instafont, now with a special deal

Have you ever looked at photos captured with your Windows Phone and thought, "I would really like to add some font to these beautiful selfies"? You're able to do just that with Instafont for Windows Phone. The app landed in-store this month and is available for free. Slide on past the break for more details on the app and what you're able to do with it.

The app itself enables you to capture a photo directly within the app, or select one from a folder on your Windows Phone and SkyDrive. You then have numerous options and functions available to personlise the image before sharing on social networks. Text, filters, fonts, colours, text size and opacity are all easily configurable.

Instafont App

Instafont comes with 45 filters to apply to photos (20 are included in the free version - upgrade with the enhance pack from the context menu when choosing a photo), 30 fonts to choose from, as well as 22 colours that make use of Windows Phone accents. You don't have to add text either, simply make the edits you wish to implement and share with desired networks.

Speaking of social networks, integration with 6tag (unofficial Instagram client for Windows Phone) is available, which launches the app and adds the image ready for the quick edits before publishing. There are some really cool effects that can be achieved with effective combinations of both filters and added text. 

As an added bonus for those who choose to download Instafont, the developer has made the enhance pack available for free. This will provide you with some more filters and whatnot, perfect if you're looking to really make use of this app and enjoy the world of free content. 

It's worth checking out and we recommend the download if you're one who enjoys adding some finishing touches to your photos. You can download Instafont from the Windows Phone Store for free (Windows Phone 8 only)

  • Going to try this out. Seems like it can replace Apict.
  • Apict is more about the Polaroid effect than text, so I find these apps complimentary.  Regardless, this is a really cool app and the special free IAP makes it a must have, imo.
  • Try Fogram as well. It's similar.
  • Crops photo to square. Is that changeable?
  • Hi Chris, Sorry, unfortunately instafont only supports to create square photo at this time. Developer of instafont
  • I got surprised by this app. Very neat and well done.
  • Wow, what a disappointment. There is still only one app (thats been around forever) that does this at some level of seriousness. And thats the app Photo Caption. The app is ugly as hell but gets the job done. I really wish there was one better.
  • It adds a watermark on the photo. Plus the filters are a joke.
  • Watermark? It does?
  • I don't understand how some photo apps appear on the Pictures hub (last panel) while others do not. Does somebody know? Because I want my most used photo apps to appear there.
  • Hi rain620, The developer needs to implement it to show the app on Photo hub. It's not hard ;-) Developer of instafont
  • Thanks! I hope all photo app developers will do this. I'm looking at you, Instablender.
    Anyway, this app is a grower, I didn't like it at first but when I discovered that the Brightness filter works great to imitate Vsco Cam, I now like it. Plus the at-first-funny filters are actually good secondary filters. I hope the next update brings more fonts :)
  • Two thumbs up for this app ... just gave it 5 stars in marketplace. It's simple and easy, and a total bonus to offer the enhanced pak for free, which removes the watermark. Two feature suggestions... Use the same filter choices as 6tag if the two apps will continue to share synergy. Doesn't make sense to leap frog filter development on both apps. Ditto on the ealrlier suggestion for more fonts, as well short caption shortcuts, such as time stamp or Lat/long. Nicely done!
  • Thank you for your suggestion. I will add more features in later versions :-)
  • It would be good if the app allowed for adding multiple captions. At the moment, you'd have to save the pic with the first caption, then open the captioned pic again to add another caption. Also would be good if the text was rotatable. But other than that, its a really fun app to have.
  • Thank you for your suggestion. I will add more features in later versions :-)
