Turn your iPhone into a high quality camera

Between the useful functions your iPhone serves and the entertainment it provides, you might have your iPhone glued to hand during your waking hours. We do, too. You've heard the saying "There's an app for that" -- and there is! We're bringing you fun and useful apps for your iPhone every week. Check out these five great camera apps for your iPhone and start taking better pictures.

 

The iPhone takes good pictures on its own, but you can take your iPhone photos to a whole new level with a few iPhone camera apps. From apps that allow you to crop your photos to apps that create photo collages, check out our list of iPhone camera apps.

The Instagram iPhone app

Instagram

The Instagram iPhone app allows you to choose from filtered effects or tilt-shift blur, turning your ordinary pics into artwork. Even better, you can share your photos in a single stream with Instagram, where users can follow you and catch all of your amazing iPhone pictures. Instagram isn't new, but it's wildly popular and worth trying if you haven't yet downloaded it.

Price: Free


Crop for Free

Crop for Free

While you may be able to capture great moments on your iPhone camera, the phone doesn't have the ability to crop your photos. Enter Crop for Free, an app that lets you crop and rotate your photos -- multiple times, if you want -- without altering the image quality. Reviewers call it "the best cropper out there" and many verify that it doesn't affect the quality.

Adobe Photoshop Express

Adobe Photoshop Express

Professional photographers and aspiring ones alike use Photoshop on their computers, but did you know you can have it on your iPhone, too? Adobe Photoshop Express is an iPhone app that puts your photo and video library right in your hand. You can edit and share pics with this app that works as a companion to photoshop.com. Best of all, you don't waste your iPhone's storage space.

Photo Mashup

Photo Mashup

If you want to whip together a photo montage, check out the Photo Mashup iPhone app. The creators of Photo Mashup say that it stands out from other photo montage apps because it is extremely simple to use. No more tapping 10 times just to pull your picture up and make a slight change. User-friendly is the selling point of this reasonably priced iPhone app. You can export your handiwork via email or save it to your phone.

Price: 99 cents


Photo Timer

Photo Timer

If you take group photos or self-portraits, Photo Timer will do the job -- and well! Photo Timer allows you to set the timer on your iPhone camera for eight different intervals between two and 300 seconds. The app also has "burst mode," which lets you take three shots in rapid succession. This is really helpful for group shots, as it will increase the chance of catching a good photo, where everyone is actually looking at the iPhone camera!

Price: Free for a limited time
