Fontmania and Warmlight Make Personalizing and Sharing Photos with Facebook Messenger a Breeze

NEW YORK, June 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Apalon Apps, a top 10 developer of iOS applications worldwide and an operating business of IAC, today announced the launch of Fontmania, a new photo personalization app for Facebook Messenger. In conjunction, the company also updated its popular photo app, Warmlight (formerly known as Fotoristic), with enhanced sharing features for Facebook Messenger. Both apps are now available in the Apple App Store.

"We see Facebook Messenger as a new opportunity to build apps from the ground up for the dynamic messaging environment," said Peter Skoromnyi, Apalon co-founder and chief strategy officer. "Consumers are increasingly using text messaging to share photos instantly, and our new apps make that process more entertaining and user-friendly than ever before."

Apalon's apps for the Apple Watch include:

Now accessible via Facebook Messenger, Fontmania allows users to take a picture, add their own text, and share it instantly to Messenger, or save the photos on their device to share elsewhere. The app includes a wide selection of universal fonts (supporting diacritical alphabets) and vivid colors to reflect the user's unique sense of style and personality. The free version is currently available here with limited ads.

Formerly known as Fotoristic, this new and improved version (re-named Warmlight) is an intuitive and user-friendly photo editing tool that helps users take professional-looking photos on iOS 8. The app offers a rich selection of editing features, such as designer filters, overlays, as well as the ability to set focus manually and adjust exposure before taking a picture. It also allows users to adjust highlights, warmth, shadows, contrast, tint and more. Images are then easily shared via Instagram and Facebook Messenger. The paid, ad-free version is available here for $1.99.
