How to create a collage in Instagram

Instagram the popular photo sharing app which was sold to Facebook for 1 billion has simply grown in popularity after the acquisition. Apart from being able to take photos and sharing it on the app, you can also create a collage of all your favorite pics and share them also. The only thing however you would need to use other apps tog to the job done. If you want to make a collage with the Instagram app itself there is a quick workaround which may not really fit the bill. You can arrange your favorite photos in the app and then take a screenshot, zoom in to cut out the borders and save it as your iPhone desktop. This hack will not really leave you happy, but for what it's worth.

Ok, so to create a collage you can do so with the following apps and we have selected some of the best ones for you. Both for you iOS devices (iPhone and iPad) and your Andriod devices.
