Review by Well its just me

This is awesome! - I have owned both previous versions of the app, but Art Text 3 is a while new game! Don’t let the preset styles and templates included fool you. At first, you may just be drawn to these, but take the time to get in deeper and you will quickly learn to make your own unique looks and styles. There is a great wealth of “raw materials” included to work with, so you will run out of time before you run out of possibilities. Using the app at a deeper level is fairly intuitive, in my opinion. You might need an hour or so before you are completely familiar with it, but once you are, you’ll be able to do a lot of text art. No one will suspect that it only took you five minutes to make that cool graphic!

Review by Rev.JB

Continuous crashes - This app continually crashes on my Mac. Especially when trying to change the font. Everytime it crashes, I need to start the project over again from scratch. I have also had issues with trying to move the text box. It usualy takes me more than a few attempts to reposition the text box.

Review by Badbeamer

This is my go-to app! - I am also a Graphic Designer and I’ve used Adobe since it came out in the 80’s?? So, I have tried a lot of alternatives. This by far is my favorite and most powerful piece of software I have for creating VERY quick and sharp graphics for print and web. Have been using Art Text for a long time and this version is my favorite. It’s fun and easy to learn, too.
