PicPlayPost is a great app for photo and video sharing. It allows users to make montages that combine photos and videos into a single montage. The app offers 36 different layouts with pretty much every permutation possible to include between one and six images in a rectangular montage. Once you select a layout, you are can tap on each space within it to add a photo from your device’s camera roll, photo library or other select apps. You can also resize the spaces within the montage to create your own custom layout.

Once you add an image or a video clip to the montage, you can resize it, flip it, turn it or add various effects. Each image and video can be edited individually, allowing you to add as many different effects as you want to a single montage. When you select video clips to add, you can also choose to edit the video to include only a selection of the clip. If you include multiple videos in a single montage, you are also given the option to have them play sequentially rather than simultaneously if you would like. Alternatively, you can add an audio track from your iPod library.

Once you are happy with the finished montage, you can share it via Facebook, Twitter, Viddy, Instagram, YouTube, email or text. You can also save it to your device’s photo library.

This is a fun app to use! The first time you use the app, it offers you a step-by-step walkthrough of how it works; but in reality PicPlayPost is so easy to use that you hardly need the walk through. If you like to take and share photos and videos with your iOS device, this app is great tool.
