Shuffles is a new app for creating your best Pinterest collages

Making the perfect Pinterest collage has never been easier — if you’re an iOS user, that is. Pinterest has launched a new iOS app called Shuffles, the ultimate collage-making app that allows users to express their creativity and create collages with photos, image cutouts, and animated effects.

While Pinterest allows users to post collages of their dream outfits and home furniture decorations, most of them have plain, boring white backgrounds. With Shuffles, you can make your collages less tedious and more inviting by using photos from either your Pinterest photo library or snapping pictures of any object with a camera. No matter what route you go down in your collage-making process, you can even cut out objects from the image with just a tap on the screen.

Once you cut out all the objects you wanted, you can resize, layer, and rotate them into your collage. Then if you want to get really creative, you can add animations and other special effects to make them come alive. The best part is you can add backgrounds of different colors as well as text to describe what your collage is about — whether it’s your next cosplay idea, your current mood board aesthetic, your dream room makeover, or just about anything in between. You can also put your spin on collages made by someone else.

You can share your collage, or use the Shuffle feature with your friends privately so that they can collaborate with you. You can also post them to public groups with people who share your interests.

A Pinterest spokesperson confirmed to TechCrunch that Shuffles is made by TwoTwenty, the company’s new in-house incubator team that launched last November. “Shuffles is a standalone app created by TwoTwenty, Pinterest’s innovative incubator team. Shuffles is an engaging way to create, publish, and share visual content,” the spokesperson said. “With more people coming to our platform for creative inspiration, we’re continuously experimenting with new ways to help Pinners and Creators bring their ideas to life.”

Because Pinterest launched the app quietly and never formally announced it nor shared any future plans with it, Shuffles is currently invite-only. However, you’ll be able to access Shuffles if you join the waitlist from the home screen.

Apple’s AI features for the iPhone just hit a major roadblock
Summarization of notification and emails on iPhone with Apple Intelligence.

Earlier this week, the EU’s competition chief, Margrethe Vestager, told CNBC that Apple had some “very serious” issues as it tries to comply with the landmark Digital Markets Act (DMA) tech legislation. These were the rules that finally forced Apple to open iPhones for alternative app stores, allow external browser engines, and enable third-party payment options, among other things. It seems those rules also mean the best of iOS 18 won’t make it to the EU bloc either.

Apple has confirmed that a trio of crucial iPhone upgrades that it announced at WWDC 2024 earlier this month won't appear on iPhones in the EU later this year. The biggest of those would be Apple Intelligence, the suite of AI features deeply integrated within iOS 18 that are aimed at redefining what iPhones can do in the age of generative AI tools like Google’s Gemini and Microsoft’s Copilot.

I have a mysterious problem with my iPhone 15 Pro Max
iPhone 15 Pro Max laying outside in a park.

There’s an issue with the iPhone I’d like Apple to fix, but I’m not quite sure what it will take to do so. I don't know if it’s a hardware or a software problem or even if I’ll always notice it if the issue has gone away.

It’s the battery life, but not necessarily the length of time the battery lasts on a charge. It’s more about battery life consistency, which is currently (and has been for some time) all over the place.
What’s the issue?

Apple lifted the curtain on all of its upcoming software updates during its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2024 keynote, showcasing what we can expect in all of its next major software updates — including iOS 18.

Apple Intelligence, Apple's own brand of AI tools, will be a large part of all the new software updates, including iOS 18. However, due to hardware constraints and the power necessary for AI, not all iPhones that can run iOS 18 will be able to get Apple Intelligence.
