Not ready for prime time. Has potential though. Do like that it supports PSD. And tons of decent templates. Biggest issues: - no ability to save work-in-progress, including reference to assets, for resuming task later, so it's a one-time only effort to create a collage; that is a total deal-breaker and I will not be using Choco until it addresses this glaring omission - no obvious ability to 'shake' up a collage to automatically fit new frames, or to randomise frames, as though throwing down images and see where they land - should be able to point to a folder of images and have them automatically fill the frames in a random manner, then be able to swap them around I keep attempting to find Mac replacements for Windows apps, as I am a tweener currently moving from Windows to Mac, and wish Mac developers would look to the established Windows apps that do things such as this extremely well. I suggest you look at LumaPix FotoFusion. They have it right. Most unfortunately they don't, as yet, have a Mac version (though they have attempted it with a Wine-like deployment, which absolutely sucks). So, for now, Choco (not sure what the significance is of the name, but hardly intuitive for the task it does, so perhaps a re-think on that too) is not up to par. It's at version 1, so hopefully the developers are keen to make it the best collage app around, and listen. So long for now. I'll get my chocolate (collage) fix elsewhere for now. Thank you. All the best...

Choco is not intuitive at all. When I finally discovered how to add a picture to the template (not quite drag-n-drop; you have to click and HOLD on the picture for a few seconds before it allows this), the frustration was already evident. No ability to save a file, although apparently, clicking the + sign under the templates allows you to save a new template with photos. What kind of a "save" setup is that? If you change a template style to see how your work may look with it, it clears out all of your photos from the layout and you can't get them back should you revert to the previous layout. It does not give you a warning that this will happen. When saving, there is no pre-formatted photo sizes such as 5x7, 8x10, etc.; it just uses pixels, millimetres, and inches. If you resize the work so as to reflect such proportions, it cuts off the pictures, and makes NO attempt to resize them. No warning to save your work should you exit; I can't believe that any programmer would not address such a basic function of programming. The icons for tools are unintuitive as they come. There is much potential here, but this is about as rough as it can get.

Pretty decent. I use it frequently. But please add an option to edit the collage we'd done, other than just the layout to avoid wasting time. Thanks! www.facebook.com/talenttrust

While the app is not the most intuitive, I do understand it and see its elegance. I will be using it frequently. I had an issue with Choco. Emailed the developer and got an answer within a half hour. We had several emails and there was a solution in my mail box in the morning. This type of responsiveness is part of what makes an app great. Kudos and thank you to the developer.

Very slow. I use jpg and raw from Canon X1 Pro, and it takes forever to put in new pictures on a new 13" MacBook Air with i7 and 8 GB of ram. It's useless. Should have tried the demo version first.

Works good. No crashes so far. Only complaint is that it only saves out to an image file (tiff, png, etc.) but not a Choco specific file. Opening that file later doesn't seem to do anything, so it's pretty much a one time effort as there doesn't seem to be any way to open up the collage later and make any changes to it.
