It’s no secret that since getting my iPhone 5 a few weeks ago I’ve embraced mobile photography more and more. I use Instagram a bit and love Camera+ which has turned into my main camera app. Every now and then I want to create a collage of images that might have something to do with each other. Like this for instance:
Right about now your saying, yeah I have a free app that can do that sort of thing. Well you are right, there are free apps that do this sort of thing and if you can stand the annoying ads then good luck to you. However Momentsia has few tricks up its sleeve that you free app doesn’t have.
Usually you open up your collage app, select one of the few templates they have and start importing your photos. The problem with this is that your collage squares and rectangles are all different sizes which when you import your photos results in cropped and screwed up aspect ratios.
It is here where Momentsia shines. You click on the square or rectangle and through the app you take the photo. No more screwed up aspect ratios or cropped images that aren’t what you were after!
What else does Momentsia do, well remember when you were trying to find the right layout, but you just couldn’t. Well Momentsia has lots and lots to choose from.
If your like me and take lots of photos and don’t think about putting them into a collage until later on, its fine Momentsia can still import your photos.
Once you have your collage set out how you want it you can share it to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, email it or save it to your camera roll. Easy!!
The only problem I’ve found with this app so far is that it doesn’t play nice with the Instagram square crop. I understand it’s a pretty new app and I’m sure the developers are working on it and will have a solution soon. If I could request one feature it would be to import one photo and be able to create a square image out of it, with out cropping ready for Instagram.
All in all for such a young app I think it’s pretty cool and definitely worth checking out. At 0.99 you’re bound to have some fun with it.
