my instagrid

I have, let's face it, too many iPhone apps. As new ones come out I'm constantly adding more and more to my phone. It's fair to say I have an iPhonepgraphy app for every occasion.

These are some of the basic apps that have stood the test of time.

Five I have:

  1. Instagram: Along with its cool filters, I love this app as an easy way to upload to twitter. Also its another great way to connect with your tribe ~ also known as your online friends. I've used instagrid above to pull them all into one website.
  2. Tiny Planet: got this one from dooce - hours of fun with your existing photos turning them into surreal works of art.
  3. Hipstamtic: great concept and great interface. Fun to use.
  4. Incredibooth: only available on iphone4 but turns your phone in to a photo booth, hours of silly fun for all ages.
  5. PS express: what can I say, I'm an adobe nerd, so love the opportunity to have this on my phone.

Check out:

  1. Everyday:  reminds you to take a self-portrait every day. This might be a great way to improve my iphonography skills.
  2. Diptic: for instagram, put together multiple photos in a new image.
  3. Postagram: instagram with a "snail mail" component, send someone you love a postcard
  4. 360 panorama: twirl and take ~ ta da, panorama
  5. Halftone: I can never resist a cool effect.

New favourites.

  • Snapseed ~ a popular and powerful processing, professional grade app for iPhone and iPad. {iTunes link}
  • Marble cam makes it look like your photos are looking through a glass marble. Not so much useful and pretty and fun. {iTunes link}
  • Fotor is a newish app and has a comprehensive range of processing features including effects, colour splash and collages. {iTunes link}
  • Facebook Camera is no Instagram {and the timing of the release was a little odd considering their purchase of the popular app} but does make sharing to the social media site easy. {iTunes link}
  • Hipstamtic D-series is the disposable camera of the Hipstamatic series. You don't see your photos until the film is finished and you can collaborate with friends on the one film. A bit of fun. {iTunes link}
