I can already hear readers gasping! Does that mean we should all leave our 35mm SLRs at home and just shoot with the iPhone? No! I look at my iPhone as a camera that can capture spontaneous moments and produce decent files. It's not my 36-megapixel Nikon D800 that captures incredible detail and produces massive files. But the iPhone is more than a camera. It's a personal computer that helps me create better photographs no matter what camera I use to get the shot.
iPhone apps fall into a few different categories. First, and most popular, are editing apps that allow you to capture and adjust the images in your phone. How could the world survive without Snapseed? But editing apps are just the beginning. There are apps that actually help you find, predict and get the image. Do you want to know where the sun rises? Then use The Photographer's Ephemeris. Where's the best lightning to photograph? Check with RadarScope. There are even apps to help with the business aspects of photography.
There's an app for just about anything you can imagine to do with your photos, but the 10 apps here are the ones I use the most.
