I love to take photos with my mobile phone, it’s such a fun way to pass time, not to mention – record memories, experiences, and stories to tell. The high-end mobile device market is definitely booming, and so are the apps and tools that get build for these devices. Today, I’m going to take a look at some of the most creative, inspiration and fun photography applications for iPhone, and iPad users.

Please, don’t be discouraged to take saucy photos by the recent hacking events that have sparked an intense discussion on mobile security. Rather, learn to become a security expert yourself. It seems to be a very rewarding career choice, with plenty of free guidance available on the web. What is the one thing that is stopping you from becoming a mobile app developer?

I don’t think I can classify these photo apps as professional, not in a sense where they’ll help you make really great quality photos, many of the apps we’re going to take a look at are aimed at making something creative, something fun and exciting that you can send over to your friends. I’ve always believed in editing photos, either on your desktop computer, or your Mac. Mobile has a long way to go before becoming reliable enough for professional photo editing.


Are selfies self-obsession? I’m not sure, probably yes more than no. Everyone seems to be crazy about selfies, but have you heard of Doublies? The Doublie application lets you insert a second image on your selfie, essentially making it a doublie!

With Doublie, choose from an expanding gallery of ready-made celeb & pop culture overlays and insert them seamlessly into your mobile pictures. It’s as easy as spinning through the gallery, placing the filter, and snapping. Edit contrast and brightness right on the screen and share your hilarious creations with friends. It’s the fun, easy way to photoshop celebs into selfies right on your phone.


A powerful camera app with full control over your image. Quickly and simply adjust all parameters of your image. No more tapping and hoping automatic can understand what you want. Take control. It does require the new iOS 8 in order to work. Manual is the perfect application for both casual, and expert mobile photographers.

Just thinking about having to switch each setting manually gives me a dreading feeling, it’s one of the biggest issues I have with the Samsung Galaxy series phones, they make the whole switch settings experience a nightmare, trying to select HDR over Standard takes more time than it takes to snap the photo itself.


How does it work? Install Camoji, record animated GIF’s using your phone’s camera, then use iMessage to send those GIF’s out to your friends, it’s that easy. You can create memes quickly and effectively. Easy social integration means that you can send out your GIF’s to everyone at once, but features like Text Captions and Emoji support can help to build a more personal GIF for someone special.


Why squeeze a complex world into a tiny square frame? Instead, Fyuse lets you capture dynamic panoramas, immersive selfies, and full 360 views of the things that matter to you. Not only that, but the photos are actually going to be interactive and respond to your every phone’s movement when interacted with. Great for capturing those big mountains, alleys and statues.

MIX by Camera360

MIX by Camera360 enables you to transform your photos in almost every way imaginable on-the-go. Packed with close to 200 filters, dSLR-like blurring effects, textures, light leaks and other professional adjustment tools, MIX is like photo editing in Manual Mode, it gives you unprecedented control over every aspect in your composition.

I have never seen a filter collection as unique as this one, but it only makes sense. The developers behind MIX are also the developers behind Camera360 – one of the most popular mobile photo editing apps of all time. It all makes sense, right? On top of that, you also get access to professional set of tools that can be used to adjust your photos, advanced color options and much more.


Are you a 3D artists? Perhaps just a creative who likes 3D objects? Matter gives you the flexibility to play with 3D objects on your photos. Take a glimpse of what’s it like to be encapsulated within a 3D object, or perhaps you want to surprise someone by adding mysterious objects to famous places? Whatever the case, Matter takes 3D very seriously.


It doesn’t matter whether you’re a professional, or a beginner trying to understand creative photography. The Union application gives everyone freedom to make what they like, and how they like it. The application allows you to edit, modify and put together a set of images to create something unique, one of a kind. You can also remove backgrounds from images, or make objects look transparent.

iOS Photo Apps for iPhone & iPad

I’m sure that every single iPhone 6 Plus user is a very happy customer indeed, the increased screen size for the device means that photographers, designers, and other photography enthusiasts can now have more freedom and space on their screens to play and work with photo editing. Do you like the new screen sizes?

I’d also love to hear your experience with the apps that we’ve discussed in the post, I’m mostly looking for feedback that can back-up the authenticity of the apps, and the success you’ve had with them. Please, if you got your own favorite photo apps that didn’t make this list, tell us more about them in the comment section.
