VideoMix appNeed a simple way to turn your photos and videos into a collage? The VideoMix app can do that! Select some of your photos, or choose some of your videos. Pick from more than 70 layouts to put them into. Add some music, use a custom text title, and your collage is ready to be shared on your Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube. It is also possible to share your collage with someone else via email.

VideoMix is free to download and free to use without advertising. Premium features are locked under a single in-app purchase of $0.99. It is currently available for iOS, only. There is no information about when, or if, an Android version will appear. VideoMix requires iOS 6.0 or later. It is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. The app is optimized for iPhone 5.

There is a four-step wizard that will walk you through the process. The first step involves selecting a layout template. The second step allows you to not only add photos and videos to the template, but also to alter the border width, curvature, color and texture. You can drag and drop things into the template. VideoMix lets you select which segment of the video to play.

The third step lets you pick an iTunes song that will play while your collage is being viewed. Customize a text title and select the font and color you want. The last step allows you to preview your creation and then share it.
