The Coolest Photo Apps for Your Phone
With so many new photo apps coming out these days, I thought I would take a little time to write about some of my favorite apps! Photo apps let you do a number of things, including take photos, edit photos, use various lenses, and even order photos from your phone to the store down the street. Note that a lot of the coolest and most popular apps are only available on the iPhone currently, mainly because people have been developing iPhone apps longer than other phone platforms like Android and Windows. But other cool photo apps are coming out for other phones as well. Read on for some of my favorites!
I can't talk about cool photo apps without first talking about the app that allows you to order, view, and share your photos from your online photo account! The Ted's app is available for iPhones, iPads, Android Windows phones. It is a free app that lets you log into your online photo account to view and share your photos. It also allows you to order your photos from your online account or from your phone's photo library to your local store! If you don't already have the app, download it today!

Instagram is a free iPhone app that allows you to take photos on your phone, then use a variety of different filters to change the look and feel of the photos. The app also lets you easily share the filtered photos to a variety of social networks and other sites. iPhone Android Windows Phone
Hipstamatic is another cool iPhone app that lets you take photos using a variety of retro lenses, cameras, and filters built right into the app. You can change different lenses or cameras with the swipe of your finger to take retro looking photos. You can even mix and match different looks! Hipstamatic costs $2.49 and is currently only available on the iPhone. However, there are similar apps that have recently been launched for Android and other phones. Learn More about Hipstamatic!
The concept behind the Best Camera app is, "The best camera is the one you have with you." Sometimes, your phone is the only camera you have to capture a moment. The Best Camera app lets you quickly shoot, edit, and share photos from your iPhone. Choose from a number of different filters to enhance your photos, and share them to a number of different sites. The app costs $2.99. Learn More about Best Camera!
Path is a photo sharing app that allows you to take photos and videos and share them with your close family and friends. Unlike other apps, Path focuses on personal relationships so you can share your life with a small group of people, and not your entire social network. Add captions and emoticons, and even chat live with other people you share with who have the app installed. Path is a free app for iPhone, Android and Windows. Learn More about Path!
