Zag is a free iPhone app to edit photos with your friends. This app is somewhat similar to other apps in terms of photo editing, but with one really cool feature. This app lets you add friends, share your edited photos with them (known as Zag) and then they can also edit the photos from the point where you left off. It is like collaborating, but this time for photo editing. The collaboration is not really real time. Instead, it is more like shared photos, on which either you or your friends can make edits. The feature of collaboration is completely optional as it only up to you whether you want to share photo or just want to use it as a normal photo editing app.
The app comes with really amazing photo editing tools like effects, stickers, text, splash, focus,drawing, etc.. You can also use this app as a meme generator app to create meme from your own photos. Apart from just editing photos and sharing them, you can also submit it to Zag’s Hall of Fame. If your photo is selected, then it is displayed in featured zags. You can also create collage from your zags. Apart from this, you can share your zag on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram and save it to camera roll.
