The diptych-style frame app has become pretty crowded recently. One of the better frame-style photo apps is PicFrame from ActiveDevelopment.

PicFrame 2.0 hit the App Store recently and brings a bunch of new standard features, as well as new options available as an in-app purchase.

You can read my review of PicFrame 1.0 here. I gave it four stars, saying that it’s a very good multi-panel photo creator that stacks up well against the excellent Diptic. The improvements in the new update add some cool new features to this already great app, including a native environment for iPads.

In addition to several bug fixes, here’s what’s new in PicFrame 2.0:

  • Double the amount of frames!
  • Now a Universal app – iPad & iPhone
  • Support for up to 5 images in a frame
  • Four new patterns
  • Easy border color picker
  • Added button to clear images – start fresh.
  • Send your image to Instagram and other installed apps
  • More options when saving to Flickr and Tumblr


An optional in app purchase to add labels to the frames to help share your story

  • Preset labels to get you started
  • Multiple fonts to use
  • Choose text and label color + transparency
  • Optional round or torn tape style edges on label
  • Drag and rotate the label to your desired position
  • High quality text in final image


PicFrame is $0.99 in the App Store. Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 3.2.2 or later.
