iPhone Love

(above photo taken using Hipstamatic for iPhone)
I became the proud owner of an iPhone 4 in early December. Since then, I've been playing around with many of the photo apps that are out there, and today I wanted to share a few of my favorites. In no order at all...here goes...

(above photo taken with CameraBag iPhone app, at a stop sign over my shoulder.)

Pano is awesome for panoramic photos. It isn't warranted for daily use, but it sure is cool to take a photo, line it up with the last one, and continue on. And on. And on. And if you really want to jump off a cliff, try 360 Pano!

Camera Bag is a really fun app to have, for sure. You can snap a picture, and then instantly edit it using one of several "actions" they have available. This is one of my favorites!

Hipstamatic is also a must-have for me. I love how fun the pics turn out. Makes me cooler than I really am.

Old Photo Pro is cool for taking a shot and making it look old. Great sepia effects if you like that sort of thing.

Shake It Photo is awesome if you were a child of the 70's like me. It turns your iPhone into an instant camera, and "processes" the photo quicker if you shake your camera. My kids love this one as much as I do...


And if you love photobooths, you will love Pocketbooth. I can't tell you how many times our kids have jumped at the chance to take a picture with this app (see above photo!). Try not to buy this one...I dare you...

100 Cameras is another must for me. You can snap a quick photo, and spend the next hour selecting the differnet editing options, with slider scales to boot! You won't be disappointed, I promise...

I have to admit, it is fun to not lug my DSLR around all the time--especially here in Ohio during the winter months. Knowing there are so many options at my fingertips--especially for photos used in my Project Life album--makes me one happy gal.

Feel free to share any of your favorite photo apps as well! I'd love to hear what you're up to!

Enjoy your Monday!

Thanks for all the info, Trish. Once we get our tax refund, my DH and I are going to finally get his and her iPhones! :)

I've been doing the same thing lately--taking more photos with my Windows phone. The pictures turn out fine and I love having the stories to tell.

Thanks for the ideas on all these apps. I'm still new to what my phone can do and will have to check out what apps I can get on it.
