Update is a scam!
I bought and paid for this app several months ago. It was my favorite go-to app for collage needs and I use it for my business. It had a very easy to use interface that I found preferable over other apps that do the same things. The latest update made major changes in performance and it is now difficult to use and simple things now require more steps. Very frustrating! The thing I’m most upset over is that even though I already purchased the app almost a year ago, all the features were locked and they now want to charge $4.99 a week to use it! NOT OK! I hit the button to “restore” my purchase so I have access to all the collages I did before, but now I’m afraid they are going to start charging by the week. I will delete the app and dispute the charges if this happens. I do not see a subscription listed in my iTunes acct so it’s kind of confusing. I want the app that I already paid for and I want it to function the way it did prior to the update... except minus the random crashes. P.S. The best thing about it was the ability to take a picture directly in the collage, that seems no longer possible in the updated version.
In app purchases don’t match. It’s a weekly subscription
I was excited to find this app with a few single-purchase add on packs after the other one I used went to a monthly and yearly subscription, which is ridiculous unless there’s a recurring business cost associated with keeping up the app. This would be like Apple trying to charge subscriptions to get iOS updates. Well alas, the in app purchases for this app don’t match what the store page says. I was ready and willing to pay ~$10 to unlock all the features but instead this is a forced trial for 1 week and then a subscription weekly.
I’m sure it was a good app, too bad it’s a greedy business model. $2.99 a week. That’s $12 a month, which is what I pay for Netflix. Netflix who has huge teams of IT to keep servers running, data storage costs, internet bandwidth costs, lawyers, original content, producers, actors, real estate costs and more. $1 a month would be quite a bit more digestible for what your consumers are getting for their hard earned money. Consider changing the business model.
What a joke!!!
This is the Last time..... This App is a Freaking Scam of a Joke! They shouldn’t even be able to be available anymore! Again as I’m making a collage on the app (which I have not used for a year) for my daughters 16th bday. I go to choose a background and it prompts me to do a
“Trail for FREE for 3 Days!” First- If That is their offer to utilize their app, then follow through with the Dang OFFER... This freaking Company goes and Charges my Card after 2 Days, TWO DAYS! Not only has it only been 2 days, NOT 3, what in the heck is worth $4.99 a WEEK on this APP... NOTHING, There is many, Many other apps for doing Fun Great things with Photos for FREE, as well as maybe paying a Monthly or yearly fee for nothing over $20, & that’s a year. I suggest do your homework look at the reviews as well Do Not Use this stupid app! If you do end up getting conned into getting charged you won’t get your money back either SO DON’T DO the free trail! What a joke!
Beware of the automatic subscription
In the info button (in the right top corner), it states that you have a 3-day trial, and goes on the say in the subscription details that you must cancel a subscription before you enter the last 24-hour period of the current subscription. That could mean you have only two days of your 3-day trial to look at the app before you will be forced into an automatic subscription. There are some “steps” provided on how to cancel your automatic subscription, but they are incorrect or incomplete, I tried then. I went to he app website provided here on the app page, but it is seriously just an advertisement about them, no additional help, FAQ, or additional support contact information, just the email address to contact them... will I get contacted before The app automatically turns into a paid subscription? I sent an email to support. But I am concerned that just deleting the app isn’t going to “free” me from their automatic renewal. I don’t know what to do, but posting a waning here seems appropriate. Perhaps support can clear this up for everyone interested.
Best free simple photo editor

I never take the time to review apps. But I felt like this one deserved to be recognized.
This app lets you choose what layout style you want. Also, Customize the aspect ratio, border thickness, amount of curve on the edges(if any), amount of drop shadow(if any), the color of the space in between pics, and reposition the pics within each space. The lines in between each pic don't double in width like most pic collage apps. And most importantly the file comes out looking great, unlike other apps that downsize the resolution. There are other free features, as well as paid ones.
All this for free, thank you!! This app has earned a long term spot on my iPhone.
Don’t Get It
By Cross GMJ
When I first got this app, it was easily the best collage maker I found for my phone. But then after an update, they made several changes to it that basically say “Hey, we took away about 80% of the features. If you want them back, then give us money!” I didn’t care for this, but the 20% of the features I was left with were still helpful at times, so I kept the app a while longer.
But now, they’re so desperate to take your cash, that you can’t even USE the app for free anymore! Anytime I try to make a collage, a pop up appears that’s like “Hey! GIVE USE MONEY!!!” You can’t exit off of the pop up and it returns every time you attempt to use Pic Jointer!
And by the way, this isn’t like a normal app, where “paying” means spending one or two dollars and being done with it. This app is apparently sO aMaZiNg it deserves a weekly subscription fee! There may be some poor sap out their will to dump their hard earned cash into this, but not me. I’m not paying three dollars a week for the privilege of using your app!
Not good anymore
I paid for the full version because it WAS a good app. Not now! They took away the features I paid for and turned it into a subscription base app to use the features I had already paid for. No notice, no refund for my purchase, and no features I paid for. Don’t waste your time, lots of other apps out there that won’t take away features you paid for without notice and then have the audacity to charge you on a subscription basis for what you’ve already paid for. Not happy with them 🤬
Update: they sent me an email with instructions that do not work. When I hit restore purchases it tells me in app purchases are not allowed. I attempted to contact you via 2 emails with no reply. The app is still worthless to me.
Update: still not working after I paid for it. You send instructions and they don’t work. You can’t hit RESTORE because it says in app purchases are not allowed. Fix this! I paid for an app and you took it away. Bad way to do business!!! 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬
So far, so good!
Bought the paid version after trying for a day. Worth it to skip the ads. I was looking for something without an app name watermark at the edge (like in Pic Collage), since I use these collages for custom greeting cards for friends. This fits the bill!
Only weird thing is that photos I add to my camera roll don't show up very quickly in the app. Even when I go to "recently added," they are not shown as the most recently added photos, but are somewhere in the middle of maybe a hundred recent pics. Kind of a hassle and time waster to find them. They should just show up as most recent if the app and my camera roll are syncing correctly. This is my main "con."
For some reason in my family app sharing the paid version isn't showing up for my spouse, so he is contacting the developer about that.
Free app - NOT! Not even a cheap app!
Once a month I need to collage a couple pics. Looked on apple store and come across many collage apps. For how little I plan to use it, It’s not a requirement for a high tech expensive app. I clicked and loaded this one not realizing it cost $2.99 a month. It gives the opportunity for a free trial. Clicked free trial and it requires you to fill in the purchase agreement. Once it gets to that page it changed to $2.99 a week. Hmmm. Went back to the App Store and start really reading all the reviews. Apparently the $2.99 I see for billing isn’t even correct. Others have stated once you get past that screen it raises the price to $4.99 a week. Yea. I don’t think so. Even if the price was five bucks for a year it would be too much for how little I plan to use it.
Even though I have NOT got a chance to use the product I give this app a poor review because of its deceptive advertising and the illusion that anyone can have this app. $260 a year to put pictures in order. No. I don’t think so.
I love this app
By mary m k
I use this app to both create collages of my friends and family to print and display and edit a single photo and create a beautiful display for any occasion I mainly use the app to impress my friends by sending my collages and edited photos to them and watching there reaction and the same queston they ask evrytime I have the same answer time “how did you do this “and my answer is always something along the lines of it was picture joined and I explain how much I love it. But all in all it is an amazing app that lets you show off your personality through decorating pictures it is an amazing app even without a membership which aren’t to bad to purchase considering that it includes lots of new fonts frames and back grounds to choose from but I love the app and would love to see more being added to it
