I do love taking photos with my big digital SLR, but sometimes it’s much more fun and convenient to shoot away with my iPhone (as you probably know, I’m addicted to it!). I’ve done a little research and spent a little money on iPhone photography apps to share the best out there with you all. Here are the best apps available and what they can do:

1. Instagram

This app is a two-in-one goody bag, and one of my all time favourites. It allows you take great photos and add a variety of fun effects to your photos, but also allows you to share with your friends too. You can share your photos on Instagram, as well as Facebook, Twitter and more.

Love: Instagram gives you the ability to take a photo and then test out an array of effects on your pic to see which you like best. I’ve used the Early Bird effect below. I also love that it has an active community of users sharing photos.

2. PictureShow

Play with light effects (oh beautiful bokeh!), frames, noise, depth of field, vignet (even if you have no idea what they do) and find the perfect effect for your photo.

Love: I am loving the shape of the photos, and most of all the ability to easily share on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, Blogger or via email.

3. TiltShiftFocus

I love a little bit of blur (more technically known as ‘depth of field’) and so when I came across TiltShiftFocus I was in heaven. After taking a photo choose what you want in focus, and the app will blur the rest.

Love: Once you download the app, it automatically appears in Instagram so you can use it there. No uploading or fancy technical knowledge required!

4. Halftone

Get creative with this simple app and add captions, effects, stamps and inject a little fun into your pictures.

Love: Usually something like this would require a whole host of photoshop skills, but this is a breeze to use.

5.  Color Splash

I have to admit, this isn’t one of my favourite apps, and I’d only using it sparingly but it is quite a cool effect. Take a photo and the app will convert it to black and white, and then paint with your finger to uncover the colour in your photo.

Love : The video tutorials explain everything with ease, so no frustrating reading of instructions. Phew!
