App review: Frametastic

I downloaded Frametastic a few weeks ago and it is listed (currently) as “free for a limited time” in its description on iTunes.

If you are reading this and own any compatible device – iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad (running iOS 4.0 or later), I suggest you download it – you won’t regret it. 

What I like about the app is that you can share lots of photos in a single frame. If you use other apps like Instagram or Path, it’s just easier to share a collage than to upload 5 individual photos.

The app offers 18 (okay 17 – one is duplicated) free frames and another 18 pack of frames for 99c.

The free frames are good enough and you don’t have to purchase more unless you want something fancier/different from the rest.

Once you choose a frame, you can customize it in different ways like making it square or postcard (3:2), adjusting the frame width and color, and making the corners rounded. You can also select themes (wood, sports, wedding, beach & museum) and choose effects for your pics (b&w, sepia, cold, warm, etc).

It’s very simple and quite fun to use. You may spend time creating masterpieces, but the end result is worth it.

The app supports sharing to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram, or sending via email.

I also own a similar app called Diptic, which is 99c. But if you want to play around and make your own collages without paying, download Frametastic

  • I really really need something like this for my laptop 😕 or online? Do you know any?

  • Actually, I haven’t seen any programs for desktop solely for this purpose. The closest I can think of is making a collage on Picasa. Have you tried it? You select the pics you want to use and then click on create collage. It gives you layout options – borders, backgrounds, colors, etc.
