Have you ever wanted to create an NFT? After all, some NFTs have sold for millions. Even if you earned a tiny percentage of those prices, it would mean some extra money to pay bills or buy something you’ve been wanting.
Luckily, there are apps out there that can help you make NFTs from your iPhone. Whether you want to make some NFTs for your friends or you want to try to sell one for big bucks, these apps can help you turn your NFT vision into reality.
GoArt is one of the top apps for creating NFTs with your iPhone. Rather than creating custom NFTs from digital art, GoArt turns your photos into NFTs using creative filters. It’s also one of the fastest NFT-making apps, as you can create an NFT-ready photo from an existing photo in seconds.
Some of the app’s creative filters include pop art, Van Gogh, Picasso, and sponge-dabbed. Once a photo is created, you can save it to your camera roll. You can also take a live photo and turn it into an NFT ready photo instantly. GoArt also saves your recently created images in a gallery for later viewing.
To get started, download the GoArt app and create an account. GoArt requires coins to use premium filters and you can earn 30 coins by signing up. You can also earn coins for sharing the app on social media pages or getting friends to sign up.

2. NFT Creator!
NFT Creator! is an app designed for those looking to create high-quality digital art without a graphic design background. With so many great customization options available, NFT Creator! can suit anyone’s needs.
Unlike other GoArt, you don’t need to upload an existing photo. Instead, you can use its database of graphics to create your own photo within the app.
One unique aspect of NFT Creator! is its customizable backgrounds. With a large variety of solid and gradient backgrounds, you can find the perfect canvas for your new NFT project. There’s also a database of stock photos with abstract and textured backgrounds.

3. NFT Creator
Not to be confused with the previous app of the same name, NFT Creator—without the exclamation mark—is another top app for creating NFTs on your iPhone.
NFT Creator has some of the best templates for making an NFT in a familiar style. With NFT Creator, you can make your own custom NFT trading cards.
To get started, pick a template from the template library and fill out the information. You can create a sports card, a Pokémon card, a sneaker card, or your own custom award cards. There are hundreds of premium templates you can customize.
NFT Creator also has a marketplace where you can buy NFTs from other creators and even win free NFTs.
The only downside is that if you want to mint your NFT on the Binance Smart Chain, you’ll need to pay a fee, and you’ll need to pay separately for a subscription if you want to unlock all templates.

SuperMe isn’t an app designed to make NFTs. Rather, it’s an app designed to make cartoon avatars. However, once you make and download an avatar, you can mint it to an NFT.
Avatar-styled NFTs are popular and if you’re looking to make a fun NFT with your personal avatar as the centerpiece, SuperMe is the way to go.
With SuperMe, you can customize your avatar’s hair, clothes, and facial expressions. You can also add a custom background and even speech bubbles.
Once the avatar is created, you can save it to your camera roll for later use as an NFT. One great way to use the SuperMe avatar is to add it to a trading card using the NFT Creator app. You can also add these avatars to other apps to get customizable backgrounds.

5. 8bit Painter
8bit Painter is the best pixelated image maker in the App Store today. Many popular NFTs use the pixelated image style, so if you are looking to make one of those, consider 8bit Painter.
All you need to do is create a new canvas and choose your size. The sizes start at 16×16 and go all the way up to 160×160. The larger the size, the more pixels the art has. Simple pixel art is usually 16×16 or 32×32.
You can also import images and turn them into pixel art. So if you create an NFT you love on one of the other apps available, you can convert it into pixel format. You can also import images as templates and edit them to create your own unique NFT.

Mint and Sell Your NFTs With NFT GO
While NFT GO isn’t specifically an app to create NFT artwork, it’s just as important. NFT GO is the app to use to turn your NFT artwork into an actual NFT through a process called minting.
Minting is when your digital art gets minted on a blockchain of your choice. Once it’s on the blockchain it can be sold to other users or transferred to NFT wallets. You can also add minted NFTs to your own wallet.
After the minting process is complete, your NFT is ready to sell. You can also do this within the NFT GO app, as it has its own marketplace. While it isn’t the most popular place to buy and sell NFTs, it’s the only place you can sell NFTs on your iPhone.
This makes NFT GO the best all-round NFT app for creating, minting, and selling NFTs. While minting can be expensive on the Ethereum network, NFT GO charges a reasonable fee to mint to Polygon.

Profiting Off the NFT Craze
NFTs are very hot right now. While creating the next million-dollar NFT seems unlikely, creating an NFT to share with your friends or family can be a lot of fun.
It’s also a great way to learn more about NFTs, and perhaps, one day, invest in some. And who knows, maybe the NFT you create will sell for a nice chunk of change!
