The Best Photography and Editing iPhone Apps for Photographers
Here is a list of some great iPhone apps for photography, along with a brief description of each and current pricing, which if course may change. If you are looking to have some fun taking pictures with your iPhone, these apps will get going. You just may become addicted – don’t say we didn’t warn you! Many of these will also work on the iPod Touch and some on the iPad. The apps shown below will help you take and/or edit your photos. If you have other favorites, please list them in the comment section.
We hope to do future lists of apps for photographers in the following categories:
- iPhone/iPad apps that provide photography and editing tips/tutorials
- iPhone/iPad apps that help photographers run their business and keep organized
- iPhone/iPad apps that provide tools for photographers, beyond photo taking and editing, for example “white noise app for newborns” or posing apps, information apps, etc.
These can be time consuming to compose and I am looking for a few volunteers who might be willing to pick an above topic and create a post similar to the one below. If you’re interested in putting a post together, please email me.
Also, Droid users have expressed interest in lists like this for their OS. Since I do not have a Droid phone, I cannot test apps or get the information you need. But again, I would love to have a Droid user compose some posts with recommend apps for that system. Contact me if interested.
