Top 10 photo apps
Discover the apps that you’ll actually use to help you plan, take, edit and share your photographs
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.
