The Good:

This interface made it super easy to create a decorative word cloud. You can type your words as input and it will give you a word cloud with a shape you like. After the program visualized your image, you are able to change the lay-out. With a press on the button you can order mugs, or a canvas with your own designed word cloud.

The Bad:

You have to sign in to save the image. So you have to create a account. That made it harder to make a fast design. It is not possible to create your own shapes. You have to choose from a database of shapes, this made the design more limited and everyting looks like each other.

The Bottomline:

The tool is good if you have no experience with the term 'design'. Because if you know a little bit of design you are already get a bit sick of how it looks.

    What notable things do other users say about this tool? (either good or bad!)

    great app. Easy making wordclouds

    Testing the tool (learning by doing – trial and error)

    What would/could a designer use this tool for?

    Cups, Canvas

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

    It is not totally free, he asks immediatly to upgrade. And you see the first moments how many things you can't use without upgrading. So it is not totally free. To save the image you have to sign in, this made it not a completely free image.

    GREAT APP
