A few months ago on Windows Appstorm I reviewed Fontli. For me this was something brilliant, without Instagram on our Windows Phones Fontli filled a gap in the image social network category.

Anand Nair, UX designer, is an integral part of Fontli’s team and he was kind enough to let me interview him.
