Social media use on mobile devices is on the rise, and one of the most productive opportunities to be creative is using your iPhone at conferences to create interesting and fun graphics. There are numerous apps for modifying photos, but the ones that use photos to create an end product like a comic, collage, or even an infographic—all from your iPhone—are the most interesting to me.

This is a feature-rich app that is only limited by your own creativity. While I’ve only used this app for “conference comics” with single graphics, I could see someone creating multi-page comics that put them together in an interactive experience (using some other tools) that would allow viewers to turn pages, tag people, and share easily on social sites.
