Recently, I was asked to review CollageIt for iOS, a free collage making app for the Iphone or Ipad. It is a neat little program that allows you to quickly create beautiful collages with your personal pictures from home or on the road.The program is very simple to use and there is no need to be a graphic designer in order to turn your photos into a piece of art
Downloading the program from Itunes was quick and easy and within minutes I was creating beautiful collages.
What I really liked about the program is that it was straight forward and easy to use. The flow of moving from choosing your layout to uploading photos was clear and easy to navigate. I liked that you were able to re size your photos with just a pinch to create a 2400 by 2400 pixels collage. I liked that they included the ability to perform basic editing functions to your photos (Enhance, Effects, Brightness, and Contrast) as well as manipulate your photo (Flip, Rotate and change border width. My favourite feature was that I was able to share them immediately with family and friends on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr.
I found it very difficult to fit my pictures into their given layouts. The resizing option was great if you wanted to make the picture larger, but I found that when you tried to shrink the picture, the border would expand and appear as a white space, leaving the collage less then desirable. The app worked great if you were to create your collage from start to finish, however if you had an imessage come in and leave the collage to respond, when your returned your collage would disappear and you would have to start from the beginning.
Overall, I would rate this application a 3 out 5. This app removes the chain tying mobile users to their desk. With Collageit for IOS, you can now create beautiful collage with your personal pictures, while on holidays, at the work or for a walk in the park, and instantly share them with family and friend.
