The Shins frontman James Mercer didn’t set out to make an app. A heavy Instagram user, he simply wanted something to make a quick photo collage. But not the kind that just plops a few photos into a grid. You know, an actual collage, like the kind you made in elementary school.
But after hunting through the App Store, he was surprised that he couldn’t find one. So he decided to make his own.
“It was just that moment of wanting something that didn’t exist,” says Mercer.
