I’m Lovin’t It – iPhone Camera apps


If you follow me on twitter, you may have seen my tweet yesterday.

There was one main reason I wanted an iPhone………….it was for all the camera apps.

It’s funny, since I got my new phone a few months ago, I don’t feel the need to take my dSLR camera with me as much as I use to, and..BIG PLUS….. you can share your iPhone pictures instantly.

TidyMom’s favorite iPhone camera apps


1.  Instagram.  First and foremost, my favorite!  If you hang out on twitter or facebook there’s no doubt you’ve seen instagram photos.  Instagram It’s a fast, beautiful and fun way to share your life with friends through a series of pictures.  Snap a photo with your iPhone, choose a filter to transform the look and feel, send to Facebook, Twitter or Flickr – and other Instagrammers can like or leave comments.  price: FREE!

*you have to have an iPhone and Instagram to comment on Instagram photos, but now there is a neat site called Webstagram,  where you can view a gallery of all your favorite users’ Instagram photos and even leave comments. 


2.  Camera+.  I use this app to take 99% of my pictures, even if I’m uploading to Instagram, I take them with Camera+.  It’s packed with lots of great features…including a timer! price: $1.99


3.  Accu Camera.  This app is pretty new for me, so I haven’t had a lot of time to play with it, but I’ve heard it automatically corrects your food image definition. Mainly Brightness, color, exposure and textures that makes pics have delicious taste! price:  FREE!




4.  MoreBeaute2.  Not a camera app, but editing app.  Make yourself look natural and gorgerous! It brightens, lightens your skin tone and smooths your skin in just 2 easy steps, no make-up skills needed! price: FREE!


5.  Picture Show.  Again, another one I haven’t used much yet, but heard great things about it from Diane, so I had to have it!  PictureShow gives you numerous ways to make your iPhone pics looks like they were taken on a vintage camera along with lots of special effects and add frames, borders, and text to your photo to tweak it to your heart’s content. price:  $1.99


6.  iMovie.  Last but not least…….iMovie is AMAZING for making movies from your iphone!  When I was at the EVO conference Diane Cu told me all about the amazing movies she’s been making from her iphone.  She told me how incredibly easy it was.  So as soon as I got home I downloaded iMovie (you need to be connected to WiFi to download it).  You can add pictures, video, text, music even voice over. price:  $4.99

This is just my first attempt, I know there is so much more I can do, but here’s a little recap of my trip to Utah for EVO ’11 with Bush’s Beans (all done on my iPhone then sent to youtube). This took me about an hour and a half and that included the time I spent learning how to make the movie.


 Check out the amazing stuff Diane is doing with her iPhone

Here are a few more camera apps on my wish list:

Hipstamatic $1.99

Lo-Mob $1.99

Quad Camera $1.99

WHEW!!  See I told you I’m addicted! I’d love to hear what camera apps you are using!

    I’m hoping to get a new phone when I upgrade in September. Funny, I already have a list of the apps I want to install. Is that odd? I just added Accu Camera to the list, thanks!

  17. Moe posted on August 5, 2011 at 8:42 am (#)

    I thought I was the only one with 8 zillion apps on my phone. Literally, a whole screen devoted to them (I don’t like the category part of my iPhone…I like to see everything!!!)

    Picture show is my fave! I think its the one that will let you add to blogger too! So if I need to post something quick I can. its not perfect for blogger, but it does the trick!

    Thanks for sharing some more that I need to go buy/add now!!!!

    Love the round-up. It’s nice to see a food blogger post about a topic other than food or drinks every once and a blue moon.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have just learned a little about Instagram, and finally got it on my phone this morning. I am going to try Camera+ next.

    Hi, I like the instagram, how neat. Thank you so much for hosting on your lovely blog! Have a wonderful weekend filled with lots of ice cream! :)

    You did such a great job on your first iMovie! I didn’t realize there was an app for the iphone specifically… that will save so much more time than uploading to the company and then dealing with the vid making.

    My fav camera app is Hipstamatic with the extra “film/lens” packages. I love the option of mixing filters and lens types to create different looks.

    There are a ton of photo editing apps I like to play with too.. mostly recently PS Express for it’s fast and easy image cleanup so I can include to a blog post. Love it!

    Thanks so much for sharing!
