Conveniently fitting into the iOS 7 aesthetic that we're all growing to quite like, Diptic PDQ lives up to its name by being a Pretty Dang Quick photo collage creation app. It'll prove immensely useful to those who want to create a collage out of their photos and don't have much time to do so.
Distinctly speedy to use, Diptic PDQ dispenses with any bells and whistles that really aren't needed; immediately requesting the photos that the user wants to import (as well as offering options to take images directly through the iOS device's camera). Users are then able to drag and drop the photos into their respective places on the layout. There are 35 layouts in all, and each are the kind of template that one would actually use rather than the kind that are too wacky to be practical.
Further functionality and variety comes from the ability to adjust the borders of the collage, such as by rounding out the edges, reducing the size that can be seen, or by adding a color to the border. It's all very quickly done thanks to a series of sliders, and far from overcomplicated. 14 filters are also available to change the look of the images. Again, they're practical and, for the most part, the kind of thing that users would want to apply.
That's the reassuring thing about Diptic PDQ. There's little to no filler, with everything available being quite useful. Sharing is similarly comprehensive, allowing for saving, emailing, or sending directly to Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook.
It really is tough to find complaints within Diptic PDQ. It's just an all-round great photo collage app, and one that rightly deserves its place on everyone's iOS device.
