PicPlayPost for iOS

The Good PicPlayPost offers video integration in an otherwise photo-only app-frame landscape, complete with sequential and simultaneous playback along with other unique features.

The Bad No iCloud support for saving or transferring projects between devices.

The Bottom Line This app is a fun way to stand out on Instagram or Vine, but even if you're not into sharing personal photos on a network, it's perfect for creating family memories to share via iMessage and e-mail.

Finally, a photo-framing app that stands out

PicPlayPost isn't new to the App Store; however, its sudden success is. It's been around since 2012, but only recently made it to the top paid-app spot in the App Store.

Photo framing apps are nothing new and there are a slew of them in the App Store. Each one allows you to place photos in combinations of frames, aspect ratios, frame colors, and sizes to make a kind of collage. But what's interesting about an app like PicPlayPost is that it goes beyond the standard frames and filters, and lets you incorporate videos into your creations. It's an interesting twist, and may be the reason behind the app's recent high ranking after Instagram Video and Vine took off.

With similar framing apps having been around and popular in the App Store for some time now, the developer has made the assumption that users will understand and know how to use the app from the start. It's a safe assumption and the app definitely handles the first launch by a new user better than older versions of PicPlayPost did. In the past, first-time users were greeted with an eight-slide tutorial covering how to use the app. Talk about scaring off those who are already weary of using new apps.
