Below are my favorite photo apps for the iphone but I’d love to hear your hints and suggestions as well:
A few weeks ago at Sundance Film Festival (#13 on my lifetime list) , I was shooting some photos through Hipstamatic and got this great shot of singer Janelle Monae at the bing bar. I was using the John S lens, Ina’s 1969 film with the flash off. $1.99 for standard equipment
My friend Sarah Truckey (in photo below) turned me onto the Pocketbooth. Pocketbooth perfectly replicates the intimacy, spontaneity, and hilarity of a traditional photobooth and is only $0.99 for a limited time.
The third and final is Instagram. It’s a FREE simple photo-taking and photo-sharing app that is filling Twitter with fun, cute photographs. New York Times Magazine contributing writer Clive Thompson explained how the photo sharing app Instagram had changed his life in this video and explains how it can help writers escape the tunnel vision of mobile devices and see the world around them in a more artistic way. Social media guru, Patrick Powers, is also a big fan of Instagram.
A few others that were recommended in Budget Travel this past year, but I have not tested, are:
- photogene – add backgrounds, colorful borders, edit
- photobucket – SORT, organize & share
- fotobabble – add voice
- camera flash – add light
- pano – stitch together up to 16 separate shots
What’s your favorite photo app?
