    "Inkscape is a useful tool that in my opinion is more powerful than it needs to be for editing on a mobile platform. The Windows version is even more so, with lots of useful features, including the ability to quickly and easily add text to images. I highly recommend it."

    "This is a great bulked up version of Paint (or toned down version of Photoshop, if you'd rather that). It can do everything you would want out of a free photo editing software, including the ability to add text to a picture. If you're looking for something simple and easy to use, this is a good one to go with."

    "This is a very good editor to be free and it was easy to learn the controls and get the hang of it. I do think it is rather limited in it's options and flexibility, but to be a free program you can't expect too much."
