Memorylage is a photography app for your Windows Phone 8 device that lets you view your photo albums in collage style, create collages, share your photos and use them as your lockscreen collage-styled wallpaper. It's a nice alternative to the native Pictures Hub and was recently updated to version 1.2.
The update brings a handful of new features and performance tweaks. Lockscreen collages can now be automatically generate (you can still manually create them) and updated periodically from your collage library. You can now adjust the margin between images and select which photo albums you want the collage generator to pull the photos from.
Additional features in the Memorylage version 1.2 update include:
- The live tile is updated in the background as well
- Extra layouts have been added, for lock screens and for photo collages
- When auto-generating collages, images are shifted up slightly, to avoid heads getting cut-off -you can now set the lock screen and live tile to an individual image, and manually set the cropping
- When setting the background image of the app, you can manually set the cropping as well
- Page transitions have been sped up slightly
Memorylage wasn't too shabby to begin with and with the updated features, the app becomes more attractive. We have been told more is in the works including image filters, some editing tools, Skydrive support and more. These features may not land all at once but they will pave a promising road for Memorylage.
The update just went live and you should be seeing it pushed out shortly. If you haven't tried Memorylage, there is a free, ad-supported trial version available for Memorylage with the full, ad-free version running $1.99. You can find Memorylage here in the Windows Phone Store.
