The guys that made WordFoto in 2011 appear to have abandoned it after living off their $2M windfall for almost 10 years. One of them posted on Reddit and basically said they didn't know much about modern iOS programming, and were going to have to get normal jobs now. I lost the Reddit thread, it was from a few years ago. The thread was for people who had "made it" to give advice. They made an Android version in 2016. Someone should clone this app on iOS.

The latest App Store review:

Mplspitbull , 10/08/2019, Could be amazing if updated and working

I have use this app in the past and liked my results. Lately it’s been buggy. Since updating to iOS 13 it doesn’t work.

Any plans to update? Quits on me every time now. Much appreciated. Thanks.

I think its interesting but maybe a little out of date in terms of the concept itself. Some people would find use for it though, may be worth trying out, since the iOS programming skills required for this kind of app would not be that high, and there is proof of past demand.

I’m interested, but over-committed to other projects! Might need a complete rewrite... def
Worth investigating! ☘️

It might make a good Flutter app, since you'd be able to hit all the device markets at once.

This WordFoto app looks quite interesting, so I found some time and created a Flutter clone. I have only released to the testing track so far, so if anyone here is interested to become a tester and give me early feedback I would appreciate that.

Besides Android, I am planning to release for Desktop (Mac, Windows, and Linux) and maybe IOS as well. This is the real advantage of Flutter.

Some photos I made with my app.
