The Best iPhone Photography Apps for 2014

To truly enjoy the best of your iPhone’s camera feature you need a few extra useful apps. You can now combine them with an iPhone telescope mount and other exciting accessories. Here are some of the best photography apps you can use for your iPhone:


On top of the list is Camera+. It has been chosen because it is fast, full of features, updated constantly and easy to use. Among its many great features one of the best is its ability to separately set exposure and focus. Other features include different shooting modes (like timer, burst and stabilizer modes), grid, digital zoom, and several editing option that let you create layers, add effects, enhance the scene and edit balance.


VSCO Cam is a powerful editing tool because it is full of filters that lets you enhance images and provides a location for sharing photos. It also has easy to use advanced features that allow you to edit temperature, contrast and exposure with some simple taps. You can also have your own VSCO Grid page where you can upload your pictures. These photos can be released as Creative Commons or you can have them copyrighted. The best thing about this app is that it’s free.

Photo Editor by Aviary

One of the most flexible photo editing tools is Photo Editor by Aviary. This tool will let you do almost everything including the use of filters, touch up blemishes and even whiten teeth. Additionally, you can also add goofy meme texts, make stickers and send pictures for printing to Walgreens.

Adobe Photoshop Touch

If you are a fan of Photoshop then this app is the best to use when you are on the go. It lets you play around with selections and layers, make adjustments and even sync your images between your desktop and iPad.


For people who are very much into taking portraits using their phones, Facetune is the best option as it allows easy and quick photo editing. It is great for quick touch-ups like whitening teeth, smoothing out wrinkles, and getting rid of zits.


If there is one simple app that you can use for sharing pictures on social networks, deGeo takes the lead. The good thing about this app is that it has the capacity to delete your location information before you hit share. This means that you can be assured that your location will not be included when you share your photos.

If This Then That

This is a newly released iOS app is not a photography app but that is good to keep around if you are fond of using your iPhone for taking photos. It lets you set it up easily so that each photo you take is safely and automatically backed up (to Flickr, Dropbox and the likes). Basically, IFTTT is an app that automatically saves your photos so that you will not have to worry about them.


Just like the IFTTT, Dropbox is essentially not a photography app; rather it also provides a great storage for your photos and other files. All you need is a Dropbox account and then you can start saving your photos to a safe and secured location.

Other Recommended Photography Apps for iPhones

Aside from those apps mentioned above, there are other apps and tools that you can easily use for editing and storing your photos.

  • Over – This is an app that lets you add text overlays.

  • TiltShiftGen 2 – This is the ideal app if you like turning big images into smaller copies.

  • CameraNoir – This is an app that works only for black and white options.

  • PicFrame – This app lets you fuse many pictures into frames. That way you can easily send several photos in one single image.

  • Instagram – This is undoubtedly the most popular photo sharing social network.

  • Pixlr Express – This is an app very much similar to Photo Editor and VSCO Cam.

With these photo editing and sharing apps, you can enjoy your iPhone cam features to the fullest.
