Review: Add spicy captions to your photos with CaptionStudio

Tag photos on your phone with predefined, often vulgar, captions.

The purpose of Caption Studio is to create pretagged photos automatically from your photo library or phone. The concept is basic and may seem, at first, to be a good idea. Why spend hours trying to think of the perfect caption for a new photo if an app will do it for you? Unfortunately, not only are the captions limited, but they also can be vulgar and there are very few options for editing or changing them.

Caption Studio presents very few options when you first open it. Either select an existing photo from your library or take a new one with your camera. Once you've done that, the app will automatically add a new caption to the photo. Some of them are cute, others are flirty, and others are downright vulgar. It's odd that such an app made it through the filters at Apple, but odder still that a large percentage of the captions would be themed as such with no option for changing them. In fact, the only way to write your own captions (or download new ones) is to pay for it in the in-app purchase menu.

Caption Studio is an app for a very limited audience. Without features to change or edit captions; with limited, oftentimes offensive captions available; and with a number of in-app purchases required to upgrade the existing app and remove ads, it is hard to recommend this app to anyone. There are plenty of apps (many of them free) that offer captioning; we recommend downloading one of them instead.
