5 Favorite Photo Apps


Photo apps can channel your inner photographer.

The App Store hosts more photo apps than your gigabytes can handle. Most share the same features with only some minor tweaks. In the end, you will relay on a handful of apps to make you appear quite talented. My handful of apps in my arsenal serve me well.

Snapseed. The app used to carry a $7.99 price tag but now it is free. It rivals Adobe Photoshop Express which is also free. Both contain many of the same features so if you have one it is doubtful you will need the other. Snapseed offers crop, tilt, filters, frames, and more.

Photogene. Plenty of feature from the basics like crop and brightness to adding text and filters make the $2.99 well spent. I especially like the text boxes this app offers.


LensLight. You never experienced so much fun with a photo app for .99. Adding light features makes your photos glow. With so many chose from it may steal an afternoon. Once you add the overlay you can adjust it as wish.

Text on Photo. It does exactly what it says and nothing more. Not bad for .99. You will chose from a variety of fonts, colors, and outline colors. The iPhone version also has shadow. Text can be tilted and sized as you wish. Simple to use and looks great. Over is also a text app that I use due to a few fonts offered but I do not find it as easy to use and the text does not have an outline or shadows.

TurboCollage. Free app that offers your flexibility in creating collages. You have the ability for freestyle or presets. You can add background color or use a photo as your background. Text is also available in the app with plenty of options.
