A couple of the most popular collage-making apps for iPhone and iPad have just been significantly updated. First, there's PicPlayPost, which has just received its 4.0 update. PicPlayPost 4.0 brings a new design inspired by the visual style of iOS 7 plus the following improvements, all of which require iOS 7:
Second, there's PicFrame, which has just been updated to version 8. Previously, PicFrame was a competitor of PicPlayPost on the photo collage-making front only. But with its latest update, PicFrame has become PicPlayPost's rival on the video collage-making front as well. That's because PicFrame 8 brings support for videos, allowing you to add videos to your frame. With video support in PicFrame 8, you can:
- Add 6 video clips up to 10 min. each
- Add background music to photo collage
- Import animated GIFs
- Share photo/video collages to Tumblr
- Instantly preview your video collages. No more waiting for rendering
- Faster video export.
- Background music will loop for the entire duration of the video collage.
In addition, PicFrame adds support for 16:9 and 9:16 ratios. Note, though, that the latest update to PicFrame doesn't redesign the app for iOS 7. Perhaps an iOS 7-style interface revamp is coming in the next update. PicPlayPost 4.0 and PicFrame 8 are available now in the App Store as free updates or as new paid downloads. The former costs $1.99, while the latter costs $0.99. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
