A number of applications exist to work with photos on a mobile device. Photo Collage App Maker Effect's usability problems and programming bugs make this photo application a less desirable download.
The initial download and installation of Photo Collage App Maker Effect completed quickly. There were no user instructions and it was unclear if technical support existed. The initial menu was difficult to decipher and had four small buttons along the bottom that were hard to read. When we selected the first one for background images, the program prompted an additional 20MB download, which took 15 minutes to complete over a high-speed connection. When finished, this did provide several useful background options. Users can select from images on their phone, take new pictures, and use clip art images. The clip art images required a separate download to use, as well. When selecting the camera option, the program force closes each time, preventing this function from operating. Unfortunately, additional bugs in the photo selection option prevent any photos saved on the smartphone from showing. Without these options functioning, the application essentially fails at its main purpose. This app is available for free, but requires viewing ads during use.
Photo Collage App Maker Effect's difficult menus and poor operation make it a poor photo editing application for Android devices.
