Apple seems to have “been inspired” by popular collage app Pic Stitch  when redesigning iPhoto for iOS 7. Taking a look at the share sheet in iPhoto reveals the icon for Photo Journals as being almost identical to that of the Pic Stitch for iOS icon, save for a quick 90˚ rotation and a color swap. What’s more, both Pic Stitch and iPhoto Journals perform very similar functions, allowing you to build photo collages to share with your friends.

We’ve reached out to the developers of Pic Stitch for comment.

    Reblogged this on William's iBlog and commented:
    As Apple would say, “Revolutionary! Magical!”

    Are you sure that this isn’t just a coincidence?


  8. Good artists copy, great artists steal. This must have a positive effect on both services.
