The Good:

It's a good reproduction of the interface, but then on a smaller scale. The microsoft word art types are also exactly how they used to where. You have options when you work with the types; scale them, turn them and move them around on the page. You can share your work immediately on social media, and have the choice to download the file. You have more than only one option when it comes to output.

The Bad:

You are really limited in options. There is not a lot choice (limited to 15 types). There is one document size to work in. When exporting files you cannot change anything about the outcome, think of file extension, and quality of the image (and the quality what you recieve isn't good).

The Bottomline:

Overall Rating:

    What would/could a designer use this tool for?

    Perhaphs, make a poster or use the typography of this website. I can understand that the font's may be difficult to find. But then again, working with this low quality wouldn't really work out that good I think.

    Depending on what kind of free this tool is, how “free” is this tool really?

    It is free to use it, there is no tracking of use or save of data elswhere.
