Following are 16 of my favorite apps for creating amazing graphics…right from within your phone!

For a list of my favorite desktop tools, check out my post 6 Free Tools to Create Amazing Eye Catching Graphics.

1. Word Swag

OMGoodness! This one is solid gold! If you have an iPhone, GO NOW and download it. You can send me a thank you card later <grin>! Using your photo as the background (or choosing from one of Word Swag’s built-in backgrounds), overlay text to create gorgeous and modern images to share on your blog or on social media. If you have an android, sorry you are out of luck but, there are some other phone apps below that are awesome too!

3. Phonto
