Not many apps get a lot better on updates but this one does. Right from opening the app up you can already see that it has been improved. A lot cleaner interface. Many new and improved features also. Great job!

Super app. Does what it says and then some. Developer actually responds to questions and comments! If you do a lot of projects invest in the Clipart Bundle. While not strictly needed, it opens up a lot of creative options.


I Do Much With This Software!

I’m an author and I do a lot of promotion alongside my publisher. I make memes with the software. I’ve made my own bookmarks using it, which saved me more than the software cost. It’s easy to use and really fun to crate things. For business, it enables you to do brochures and business cards, etc. I absolutely love it.
