Are you looking for iOS apps to take better photos, do more with your photos and want to share your photos with friends more easily? Then, read on to find such amazing photography apps for your iPhone and iPad.

The best camera is the one you have with you, and for more and more people these days, that means the iPhone camera.

There are many iPhone photo apps out there, and they are not all equal. Here are a few photo apps that are worth downloading to your iPhone in order to take more interesting photos, do more with your photos, and share them with friends.


Instagram lets your photographs be a social experience. It's a little bit like FourSquare, Twitter, and Facebook; but the focus is photos snapped by you and others. Take a photo within the app, then scroll through several options of filters to get just the effect you want. When you post the photo, you can add a description and location, and it will be viewable by your followers. You can add contacts to follow and "like" and comment on each other's photographs.
Type : Free.

Autostitch Pic

A great panorama app. Say you're perched on the edge of a Greek island and you want to fit the entire scenery into one photograph. Take several photos using your iPhone camera, moving across your view. Then, inside the Autostitch app, select those photos in any order, and click a button. The app will automatically align and stitch the photos together into a larger panoramic photo, which you can then crop right away to eliminate any unevenness, and save to your photo library.
Type: Paid.
Price: $1.99.


This one is fun for the pure novelty of getting to shake your phone. Take a picture in the app or select a photo from your photo library, and then shake your camera. As you do, you'll see the photo develop much like an actual Polaroid. It seems the photo develops faster the faster you shake your camera too. Just don't shake it too hard!
Type: Paid.
Price: $0.99.


Hipstamatic works with the built in iPhone camera to create a square photo that has been processed with a combination of film, lens and optional flash filters. Think of it as some advanced Photoshop work wrapped up in a simple to use camera app.

Photos taken from the Hipstamatic app can easily be uploaded to Facebook, Flickr, Tumblr, sent via Email or simply saved in the phone's photo library all without ever having to leave the app.

The initial download comes with a set of standard equipment that produces plenty of impressive results. If you really get into the app though, you'll probably want to explore the in-app purchase options from their camera equipment store namely Hipstamart. Here you'll find a selection of booster packs to give you even more wonderful combinations to experiment with.
Type: Paid.
Price: $1.99.

PS Express

The Photoshop Express app is good for basics: you can rotate, flip, straighten, and crop a photo. You can adjust the exposure, saturation, tint, and contrast, and convert a photo to black and white. The app goes beyond the basics, though, and gives options for adding filters, effects, and borders.
Type: Free.

Even more iPhone photo apps than these

There are many different photo apps for iPhone, but the ones listed above are a good place to start. You might discover that you like features of certain apps and dislike features of others, and then you can find more similar apps that fit your needs. It's safe to assume that new versions of the iPhone will keep improving upon the iPhone camera, so iPhone photography will continue to improve. Most of all, have fun and take lots of photos!

Good collection indeed, yet I wonder whether an iPhone really needs an app to improve the images. Proved undoubtedly as one of the best camera apps, the iPhones- especially the latest iPhone 6 and 6 plus - excel in every section of the camera department.
