Collage Camera (on iTunes) for the iPhone was released yesterday and is currently selling at an introductory price of $0.99. It allows you to make a collage effect using a single photo that you can snap or pull from your library. You can then choose from several collage templates and backgrounds. The highest output resolution is 600×800 (some templates are smaller) when saving the image to your iPhone.
The app is very easy to use and seems stable (no crashes yet on my iPhone 4). Hopefully the resolution will be increased in a future update, along with more templates.
Other things that could make this a bit more interesting in the future include: having the segmented parts of the image tilt along with the small frames, when you shake your iPhone it “shakes” the tiles around to random positions/rotations, and when editing the placement of your image an overlay of the current collage structure could be displayed.
Click on any of these images for the full size version.
