App Top List: Top 5 iPhone Photo Apps

There are several great photo apps for the iPhone that will cost as little as free-$2.99 but they are well worth it. These apps will give your iPhone the digital camera capabilities that it's lacking on it's own. Not only will you be able to set a timer for automatic photo taking but also increase the steadiness of your shots and set different filters. The quality of your photos will also increase which is a plus with these apps.

FotoTimer - This app adds the self-timing feature of your digital camera to your iPhone. This app gives you the ability to delay your photo taking by 2, 5, 10, and 20 seconds so now you can be included if you want. This app is $1.99. Download it now.

SteadyCam - You know how much you shake while pressing the shutter button on the iPhone when taking pictures? Well this app eliminates that. While using SteadyCam, you press the Shutter button and the photo will not be taken until your hand is stable. There is a free version which I use and a Premium version that adds self-timer and full screen shutter touch capabilities for $0.99 (for a limited time). Dowload it now.

Pano - This great app gives you the capability of taking 6 photos and merging then into one panoramic photo. They just added the Portrait feature so now you can take photos with your iPhone held upright. This app is $2.99. Download it now.

CameraBag - Enhance your photos with the 10 different filters available. You can either take new pictures using one of the filters or choose a photo from your photo album and enhance it. The filters they have available now are: Helga, Instant, Cinema, 1962, Infrared, Fisheye, Original, Lolo, 1974, and Mono. This app cost $2.99. Download it now.

Sodasnap postcards - With this app you can take new photos or one from your photo album and convert them on the fly into postcards with your personal message. You can save the postcards automatically to your album, e-mail them or post them on SodaSnap.com. This app is free.

As an added bonus to this post I give you HP iPrint Photo app. With this app you will be able to print photos directly from your iPhone to your network printer. This app is free and you can find more information in the App store, at www.hp.com/go/iprintphoto or download it now.
