Kwilt, the app that bills itself as “your photo roll on steroids,” has just received a major update that brings a dramatically different user interface and several other key new features. The app makes photo editing and sharing powerful and easy, no matter what device the images were taken with or what service they’re stored on.
Kwilt already integrates with Apple’s Photo Stream, Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, Google +, Picasa, Tumblr, Photobucket, Dropbox, Google Drive, and Microsoft’s OneDrive. With the new update, the app can also access photos stored on Medion LifeCloud, Netgear Stora, and Seagate GoFlex Home.
The app’s complete makeover for the new version makes Kwilt even more beautiful and simpler to use. The new and improved collage creator allows you to create and share more gorgeous KwiltSnaps than before, using new layouts and new interactions in the editor such as panning and zooming individual images. You can also delete grids in order to reorganize the layouts for your collages.
Navigation within Kwilt has also seen some major improvements. The app now supports vertical scrolling to browse through your Kwilts, and the fast scroller lets you zip through your photo collection while also taking advantage of an on-demand label to provide you with more accurate navigation.
Under the hood, the developers behind Kwilt have made performance and stability improvements to give you a more seamless experience. They’ve also squished a few bugs and made miscellaneous improvements throughout the app.
Kwilt is a free download from the App Store, with in-app purchases to improve photo editing capabilities, remove the watermark, and enable DLNA streaming. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, and requires iOS 7.0 or later.
