I collect iPhone apps like some people might collect shoes or handbags. You can never have too many apps [until your device is full, of course].
I’ve just ticked over 300 apps on my phone. Yes, 300, that’s not an extra zero by mistake. Most are photo and video related. Sure I don’t use them all but you never know. What can I say, I’m a hoarder.
Anyway, I’ve bookmarked a few new and new-to-me ones recently that I thought you might like to try, too.
Now these are iOS links but I’ve included Android notes where appropriate.
- New this week is Bokeh. There’s a great write-up of it here. I love being an early adopter because I got to snag my name. [Plans for Android in works]
- You might have already seen this one around, or even already used it, but Flipagram is a bit of fun, allowing you to bring your photos to life in a short video. Read more here. [Similar to another one of my favourites Everlapse] Also available in Android.
- One thing the Mr [who is also a bit iPhoneography addicted, completely my fault] have always wanted was a decent long exposure setting on the iPhone. Then I spotted this post on the Instagram blog and download Slow Shutter Cam. Can’t wait to try this out. [iOS only]
- Another one for low light, Average Cam Pro takes several shots at once, analyses them and normalises the result to get the best-lit shot.
- OKDOTHIS is an app with prompts for photo ideas as well as a network to share their ideas. While I don’t really need another network, I love the prompt idea. Via here. [iOS only]
I haven’t downloaded this one but it looks cool. FaceCrypt allows you to unlock your phone with a selfie.
