Review: Pics Booth+ offers familiar collage creation features, but with issues

Create collages and framed photos on your iOS device with this often-frustrating app.

Pics Booth+ is another in a long line of photo collage creation tools on the App Store, and it does little to stand out from the crowd as being worth your download time. The app is not ineffective -- it does what it advertises -- but it offers few new features, a cumbersome interface, and an ad-supported setup that can be frustrating at times, even as it asks you for upgrades.

After installation, you can start creating your collages by adding photos from your library or taking photos with your camera app and including them. The photo booth option allows you to choose from one of a number of multiframe collages that you can then load images into. Loading an image is easy enough, but when taking photos, you don't know how they will fit the frames, making it hard to match up the two in terms of size. The ability to take multiple photos and drop them into the frames is nice, but the lack of direction and editing tools onscreen is frustrating.

Pics Booth+ is an uneven app in many ways. It is at times fun to use and at others frustrating, especially with frequent pop-up ads. If you enjoy taking the photos in a photo booth style, you may enjoy this app, but there are a lot of better framing and collage creation tools out there.
