One of the best things about using an iPad is the great apps that we can run on it. There are excellent apps for just about any purpose you can think of. Better still, there are lots of great free apps for the iPad. Our Best Free iPad App of the Week posts celebrate these apps.
This week’s pick is Pic Collage, an app dedicated to helping you make collages on your iPad. Here’s a slice of its App Store introduction and a list of key features:
Import photos from your photo library, your Facebook albums (and your friends’ albums too), or use photos from the web to create a collage. There are also lots of fun backgrounds and stickers for you to choose from!
Simple and intuitive touch gestures:
- Tap to add photos and move them to front
- Resize photos by stretching or pinching them
- Rotate them with two fingers
- Delete a photo with a simple flick
- Tap-and-hold to move photo to the back
- Double-tap a photo to edit photo, crop photo, or edit borders
- Move multiple photos at a time in your collage
- Shake-to-straighten photos
- CLIP PHOTO by outlining the area you want to “clip” with your finger
When you’re done, share your collages on Facebook, Twitter, or email. In addition, you can print and ship it as a physical postcard if you prefer a more personal touch. :)
Pic Collage is a simple and fun app to use. I’ve tried out a few collage making apps, but this one’s ease of use has won me over. Everything you want to do in the app is intuitive – from resizing, moving and rotating images to adding text and editing images – and you can throw together a nice collage in no time flat.
I’ve done a few collages with iPad wallpapers, aircraft images from a previous pick for Best Free iPad App of the Week – Boeing Milestones, and a few family oriented selections, like this one on Sea World:
The app also has a Featured section where you can view a number of featured collages, like this one for Hunger Games:
The app offers additional sets of stickers as In-App purchases, but I don’t feel as if I need or want any stickers when using it.
Two things I would like to see added to the app are an Undo button for when you slip up and landscape support.
I’ve only just discovered Pic Collage, but I’m sure it will continue to serve me well – as there are lots of good uses for a good collage made quickly and easily on the iPad.
Here’s an App Store link for Pic Collage.
