What Is It?

It’s a very simple to use framing and sharing app for your photographs.

Is It Easy To Use?

Totally child’s play, once you’ve uploaded the app you are presented with various options/frames to choose from. As you might expect there are plenty of options, along with a good quantity of frame ratios including 2:3, 1:1, 3:4 and 4:3.

Once you have selected the frame you want to use just click on it. To add your images, just select each greyed out aperture and you will be taken to your photo roll, from here you can select your images.

Once your images have been added you can do some basic editing on each image, as per the screen shot above. There are some good filters to choose from and the usual brightness/contrast/saturation and sharpness options that you would expect.

Although you can move and rotate the images around in their apertures, unfortunately you cannot move the images to alternative apertures, at least not at the moment, perhaps this feature could be added with a future update.

Once you have added the images you can changed the widths of the borders and adjust the corner angles, by selecting the Border option at the foot of the app.

To ensure your images really stand out select the Color option and a choice of eight colors are available to fill the gaps around the images.

Then you’re ready to share your InFrame Foto, just select the Sharing icon and select Normal-Res, Ultra-Res or Album, depending on where you want to send it.

Is It Fun?

Yes, it is fun but perhaps its best selling point is its ease of use.

Is It Pretty?

The UI is quite basic and won’t win any design awards but it is efficient and of course, most importantly it makes your images look pretty.

Should You Download It?

It’s an interesting app and very easy to use, we would like to see further options, such as moving images from aperture to aperture within frames and more color or pattern options but this is version 1 and so far it looks good.
