Best photography apps for iPad, iPhone

Ashleigh Allsopp | Aug. 19, 2013
We round up the best photography apps for iPad and iPhone.

As the camera on the iPhone improves, more and more people are finding themselves using their iPhone to take photographs, instead of carrying around a compact camera. It's convenient, and you can use apps to edit your photographs straight from the iPhone and share them with friends within minutes.

Here, we've collected some of our favourite photography apps for iPhone and iPad for you to discover. We'll continue to update this article as more great photography apps are released in the iOS App Store.

Snapseed for iPad and iPhone (free)

We think that Snapseed is our all-time favourite photography app for iPhone. We've been using it since way back in 2011 and loved it then, and it's only improved since.

Snapseed makes it super-easy to edit photographs on your iPhone, and has loads of sophisticated tools that enable you to achieve almost anything you want to with your image.

Instagram (free)

You've probably heard of Instagram. It's massively popular at the moment, and celebrities have taken a liking to it too. It's a social photography app that lets you take and edit photos and then share them with friends through Instagram itself and/or through Twitter, Facebook and more.

Photosynth (free)

Microsoft's Photosynth app lets you take a 360 degree panorama, and the results are pretty good. It's worth taking your time to line everything up properly, but it's really cool to be able to take a photo of an amazing view from absolutely every angle, so you can relive it another time.

Perfect B&W for iPad and iPhone (£1.49)

We love onOne Software's Perfect B&W app for creating monochrome images on our iPad and iPhone. It's simple to use and is non-destructive so you won't lose the original image.

Lo-mob Superslides for iPhone (99p)

Lo-mob Superslides is an attractive addition to any iPhone photographer's collection of apps, that while hardly essential, offers some suitably subtle results that are easy on the eye. Plus, the ability to randomise images simply by refreshing an image also ensures your vintage looking images don't start looking stale or samey.

iPhoto for iOS (£2.99)

Apple's very own iPhoto app for iOS is an image editor that places photo viewing, editing, and sharing at your fingertips. There's a lot that iPhoto for iOS can do, so take a look at our full review of iPhoto to find out more.

FaceTune for iPhone (£1.49)
