Collect App Review

 In the past I was using the Photo 365 app but this year I got hooked on the Collect App. This app works exactly the same way as the Photo 365 app in that you are prompted to collect a photo a day. There is a free version of the app and a paid version of the app. The paid version of the app allows you create a video of all your photos as well as it gives you different designs to choose from that you can add to your photos.

For $1.99 I think its worth it to have the pro version of the app so that you can pick the different designs to lay your photos out on! You can print these collected photos and use them in your project life or scrap them regularly. I love the simple layout of what the photos look like once you have collected them.

I really enjoy the journaling aspect of the collect app. The journaling enables me to write why I took that photo or what I am trying to remember. All this information is in the note part or you can put it in the title of the photo.

I love the collage aspect of the app that allows me to share my month after I have collected all my photos. I think this is one of my favorite aspects of the app and I plan to incorporate the collages into my project life album this year.

The app is very easy to use, upon opening it you see the monthly calendar and you pick the day that you want to add your photo to. Once you have picked your day you are taken to your photo albums or you can snap a picture.

Next you add your title and notes and you are all done. You can save the photo to your camera roll or you can send the photo to email, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Dropbox, or Flickr.

You can also add multiple photos to one day which allows you to collect all your memories and thoughts from one day!

I am no longer using the Photo 365 app and I have fallen completely in love with the Collect app!

Check out my February Collage and one of my first photos for the month of March!

Do you use a photo a day app?


Fuzel App Update

Fuzel App ReviewWell you know how much I love my apps! Fuzel which happens to be my absolute favorite collage app has had a great update! In order to get the update you will have to go to the app store and download the new Fuzel app or you can just click on the download button at the end of my post!

All in all Fuzel still does the same thing it has always done which is allow you to create a collage with the photos that are on your phone. I have created many collages with the Fuzel app and continue to love the ease of being able to create a collage with my iPhone photos.

Not much has changed with the app since my last review of the Fuzel app except that they have made it even easier for you to add your photos to a collage format and they have created more accents for you to use with your collages.

As with all collage apps you have to choose your template and your ratio. You have all the common ratios to choose from such as 1:1 (square), 3:2 (4×6 size) and many more. You can access all your photos on your phone and create many different collages. Once you have picked your photos and have added them to your collage you can then edit the photos within the collage and size them to just the way you want them!

Next step is to check out the border of your collage where you can round the inner and outer corners along with add a shadow to the photos, which is a new option. I really like the shadow effect ability and have had some fun playing with it. You can then add a color or a pattern to the background of your collage which I normally do because to me it makes the collage almost like a mini scrapbook layout.

Once you are finished with your border you can then add text to your collage through a label or you can add a sticker or a frame to your collage. The new Fuzel app has many different and new options for you to choose from when it comes to the stickers and the frames that you can add to your collage.

Fuzel also created a Gallery of the collages that you have made now as well as many different ways to earn credits to buy packages from the store so that you can create great collages.

Once your Collage has been created you can save it to your device or transfer it directly to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, Email, or to a Text message. I always save my collages to my phone and then open whatever app I want to share it with if I choose to share it.

Here are a few collages that I have created with the new and improved Fuzel app!
