Nikon re­cently launched its SnapBridge app for iPhones and iPads, fol­low­ing the de­but of its An­droid ver­sion in the spring. SnapBridge is set to be­come a stan­dard fea­ture of new Nikon cam­eras, blend­ing wire­less teth­er­ing (the abil­ity to con­trol your cam­era from a smart­phone or tablet) with au­to­matic im­age down­load­ing. It’s early days, but the tech­nol­ogy has bags of po­ten­tial.

Ob­vi­ously it’s not the only smart­phone app that can make a dif­fer­ence to your pho­tog­ra­phy, though, so we thought we’d pro­vide a round-up of this and other apps that make it eas­ier to plan, shoot, edit and share your pic­tures, whether you’re at home or out and about. Pho­tog­ra­phy apps aren’t all about face-swap­ping and ad­ding ‘vin­tage’ fil­ter ef­fects. These are tools in the same way that Pho­to­shop is, and once you’ve used the best of them you’ll won­der how you ever worked with­out them.

If you’re of­ten sur­rounded by pa­per maps, lam­i­nated depth-of-field ta­bles and sun­rise and sun­set cal­cu­la­tors, we’re about to make your life a whole lot eas­ier – as you’ll see, for the price of a pie and a pint you can pick up an app that does all of the heavy lift­ing for you. Like­wise, for en­hanc­ing im­ages quickly we’ve got mul­ti­ple solid choices, and we’ve even in­cluded an app to pro­vide pho­to­graphic in­spi­ra­tion.
