Meme Generator Featured

Want to turn a picture into a meme? You can do it with help of meme generator apps, which offer an advantage for a wide variety of templates, especially the trending ones, such as meme fonts and a dedicated interface. Let’s take a look at the best meme generator apps for Android, iPhone, online tools, and desktop.

1. IMGFlip (Web)

IMGFlip, one of the finest meme maker online apps, provides a plethora of meme templates as well as the option to simply search for them. It has more than 1000 meme templates, including Drake memes, cat memes, no memes, and baby memes. You may even use your own photos to make memes.

The app allows you to edit your memes in a variety of ways. You may, for example, draw on the image or alter the meme text color, size, style, and alignment.

The only disadvantage of this app is that if you use the “Generate meme” button, it adds a watermark to the finished image. You may avoid this by right-clicking on the finished image and selecting “Save image as.”

To create a meme using IMGFlip:

  1. Open the website and press the “Create” button.
  2. Choose “Make a meme” from the menu.
