Create unique photo collages with PolyMagic for iPhone and iPad

PolyMagic is a fantastic little iPhone and iPad app that lets you create interesting collages of photos. Most other similar apps only allow rectangular frames around each photo, but PolyMagic is filled with frames that are shaped like polygons, making your collages truly unique.

Creating a collage is very a simple and intuitive task. After choosing your photos, just grab a vertex and slide it around to the location you think looks best. PolyMagic has 66 layouts that the creators believe to be aesthetically pleasing, but they also allow you to adjust them how you want.

With apps like Instagram, square cropping has become very popular and many collage apps only offer squared. PolyMagic, however, offers 6 different ratios and will let you drag the boarders into any dimensions you wish. The most recent update of PolyMagic also introduced some basic photo editing features into the app. Now you can make edits such as enhance, effects, saturation, brightness, contrast, text, and drawing.

Once your done with your collage, you can easily and quickly export directly into Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumbler.

Selecting good photos that compliment each other for collages is already a challenge, and PolyMagic has made this creative element even more challenging -- but if you do it right, you can obtain some wonderfully artistic results.

PolyMagic is free for a very limited time, so make sure you grab it before the sale ends! After you do, head on over to our Photography forum and show off your great collages!

Yup, unable to download :( Hopefully, it clears up and is still free later on.

Lt_Solorna says:

Just got it to download on my 4s. Can't wait to try it out.

Joe says:

How did you get it to download? Everytime I try, I keep getting "Item is being modified. Please try again later."

Lt_Solorna says:

Well, what I did was opened the app store icon, did a search "polymagic", opened the full version info and hit the install icon. I put my password in and it then downloaded and installed.

RodneyJ725 says:

I did the same for hours... I still cannot get it and getting the message that it is being updated

I wish I could be more supportive but those collages look dreadful. What's next, velvet Elvis painting apps?

Still unable to purchase... on iTunes, iPad or iPhone. Effing Apple!

I'm really sorry everyone. I don't know what the problem is. I downloaded it yesterday without a problem :(

coskier says:

Fortunately OSnap! Ultimate Time Lapse downloaded fine (it's free right now too, though I know it's purpose is different). Polymagic is still erroring.

Juan says:

This guy also makes an App called ArcFrame that is 99 cents. I can't tell the difference for the life of me, as both PM and AF have free and paid versions (tho the PM paid version is temp free)
