Scrapbook on your iPhone, the easy way...
eScrap App Review
by on March 14, 2011
Scrapbooking hasn’t taken off in the UK like it has in the US, but there’s still a strong market for it. As with scrapbooking in the real world, you use a range of preset shapes, letters and papers, to build up a page of memories in the form of a digital scrapbook.
eScrap App lets you scrapbook on your iPhone, importing pictures from Photos. You can use the preset Quick Pages or you choose from a theme, which includes paper and assets, so you can build your page up from scratch.
The assets, as befits the well-respected brand behind the app, are of a generally very high quality, though the range is currently a little small.
Layering up elements can be fiddly on the iPhone’s small screen; it’s often tricky to select the thing you’re aiming for as there’s no zoom control and scaling, rotating and ordering page furniture can be a bit hit and miss, and you have to line elements up by eye only.
Still, the finished results can be pretty, and you can share them on Twitter, Facebook, via email, or by saving to Photos. Sadly, there’s no way to save a design in a way that retains its editability, and the finished pages are limited to 480×320 pixels; don’t envisage printing designs at high quality.
It’s a fun, sweet app that has bags of potential, but the iPhone’s small screen is a frustration. (An iPad version is incoming.)
