iPhone users are always looking for ways to show off their photos and make them look fancier than they really are. Whether it's through Instagram , Hipstamatic, or one of the various frame apps. Well, I have a new app for you to try. It's an app trying to make it easy for iPhone users to create a collage in a matter of minutes.

Mixel (free)Apple iPhone 4S - 16GB - white (Verizon Wireless), a recent addition to the App Store, allows you to quickly make a collage out of photos stored on your iPhone, or imported photos from Instagram and Facebook.

Making a collage is easy:

  • Tap on the + sign
  • Select the source of your photos
  • Choose up to 16 photos
  • Let Mixel do the rest

Of course, if you're unhappy with the layout you can tap on Shuffle or rearrange the photos yourself. There are also a total of six themes you can choose from, each with its own look and feel to it.

Once you're happy with the collage, you'll be able to post it to your own Mixel stream and then share it directly with Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, save it to your Camera Roll, or share via e-mail.
