Photo editing has really come far in a short amount of time. Photo apps for Android, iPhone and iPad have allowed a new generation of photographers to explore the limits of their creativity.
But there are photo apps for more than just photo editing. Photo apps run the gamut these days, from tide and sunset calculators, lens databases to photo apps that can allow you to trigger your camera via your smartphone or tablet.
There are so many photo apps out there it can be difficult to know what’s worth your time. In this post we’ve rounded up some of the best photo apps designed with photographers in mind.
These are photo apps that are more than just a quick novelty act; rather, the apps in this collection all offer something extra to your photography, whether it’s that remote triggering capability, a depth of field calculator or daily inspiration.
We’ve tested all of the photo apps in this post, and we’ll continue to update with more as and when we find ones we like.
Best Photo Apps: ioShutterCam
Create beautiful timelapse films or just mess about tracking any slow- moving subject with ioShutterCam. This app works with your iPhone’s built-in camera and is easy to program, automatically compiling the separate images into a video.
Other nice touches include ShakeToTake and ClapToSnap, where the app takes a shot upon a shake of your iPhone or a clap of the hands. It’s really fun to use.

Best Photo Apps: Pop Camera
Hipstamatic users will likely feel an overwhelming sense of familiarity on downloading Pop Camera. But with a funky design and the ability to shoot double exposures and sequences, it has its own uses.
Toy camera effects can be achieved using a variety of vintage and retro filters, and there aren’t any In-App purchases. The ability to shoot in high resolution means you can share your pictures via Twitter, Flickr and Facebook.
It’s a great app, but if you’ve already got Hipstamatic or Instagram, you may find that the £1.49 isn’t wholly worth it.
