Pic Collage is an app that contains just about everything you need to make amazing collages with all of your photos. The app is trusted by well over 100 million people from all over the world as their primary collage making app. The app is also very accessible for everyone and even if you have never made a collage before, you will be able to work the app with ease. But on the other hand, the app offers enough features and options to satisfy people who have been making collages for years. No matter who you are, Pic Collage makes it easy to create quality collages to share with all of your friends, families, and followers.

One of the biggest sellers of this app is simply how simple it is to use. It can only take you a few seconds to create a stunning collage with this app. This is thanks to their photo grid feature. This feature allows you to select your grid layout or template in seconds, but you still have the option to customize your own if you want as well. You can also change the size of your collage or template with the touch of a button.

Once you have figured out the size of your collage, the layout you want, and have chosen the pictures you want in your collage, you are ready to get creative. This app is full of cute and creative stickers that you can add to your collage to give them that extra bit of personality. These stickers come in all different shapes and sizes, with new additions and seasonal stickers being added to the app all the time. There are thousands and thousands of these stickers and with new ones always being added to Pic Collage, you should never get bored of the selection.

However, adding stickers to your collage isn’t the only type of customization you can do to give your piece of art some personality. In fact, there are tons of other things that you can do. You can customize the background, border, photo grid, filter and many other features with the in-app photo editor. There is even a web search feature that lets you scour the internet to find the perfect picture to add to your collage as well. There is even an option to draw on your collage if you fancy yourself an artist.

Of course, it is also incredibly easy to share your collage with the world. Whether you just want to save it for later, or send it out to the masses now, this app can help you out. In fact, you can share it right from the app to various different sites like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and many others. This is great because most of us create and edit these collages to show off an experience or an event to our friends and families. So being able to share it right from the app saves everyone some time and effort.

You can also browse the creations of others and get inspiration for your own masterpieces. You can even remix their collages with your own! So while the app is mainly about creating your own collages and sharing them, there is also a social networking aspect to this app, which makes a cool addition.

The app is updated regularly and they pay attention to the concerns of their millions and millions of users. There are tons of different recent updates to the app and look for them to continue into the future as well. So while the app is already the best photo collage app out there (according to us), don’t be shocked if it gets even better in the future.

In addition to the features of this app being plentiful and great, the design of the app is also something that the developers and designers should be very proud of. The app is light and bright, with subtle tones throughout that never distract from the content of the app in the slightest. The options and features of the app are all easy to find, but yet not shoved in your face and jamming the screen full of content. All in all, it just looks incredible and functions equally as well.

The app is also completely free to download and use, but it does offer some in-app purchases if you decide you want every single feature and option that is offered by the app. These are available for a dollar or two and are great additions for those who don’t mind spending a few dollars on an app like this. However, if you don’t feel like spending any money on this app, that is fine too. The app offers enough free features and options to still be able to craft stunning and beautiful collages.

Whatever you need to create a collage for, this is simply one of the best apps on the market to help you out. It is incredibly simple to use, has a gorgeous design and interface, and is jam-packed full of features. This will help you transform your photos into gorgeous pieces of art that will be able to show and share so much more than a single photo ever could.

Diptic

Compatible With

IOS, Android

Whether you want to combine some photos, videos, or both, Diptic is one of the best apps on the market to do so. Not only is the app powerful, quick and fast, it is very customizable. There is a ton of layouts to choose from, and each comes with multiple ways to enhance them and make them ever better.

You can add music, captions and more, which will all separate your collages from the masses of other ones that get created. Importing and exporting in this app is also incredibly easy, and so is sharing and saving. Border customization is also an important and great part of this app, with so many different options and choices to make.

The design of this app is fairly unique as it utilizes a gray color scheme, and not a traditional black, white or colored theme like many apps on this list do. Some will love it, while others may not. The app’s interface and design function well and everything is easy to understand throughout it. The app is $2.99 (more than most on this list), but if you are a fan of the design and the content of the app, a few dollars isn’t too much to ask. There are also some in-app purchases, but you don’t need those for this app to be great.
