In early August, a new photography-based subscription-only social media app hit the iOS App Store. Called Glass, it touts itself as a new, distraction-free home for photographers that is focused on one thing: your photos.
Drawing inspiration from classic rangefinder cameras and DSLRs, the Fjorden camera grip attaches to an iPhone and transforms it into a camera that mimics the feel of a full-size DSLR or mirrorless with more functionality.
OWC has announced Copy That, an app with the sole purpose of making it easier to copy photos and videos from your iPhone to external storage. It gives you the ability to select what you want to copy, where you want to copy photos to, and how you want to copy them.
Earlier this week, Apple announced the winners of its annual 'Design Awards,' and as usual, one of the honorees was a photo editing app. This year, that app was Darkroom, and while the photo and video editor for iOS is impressive in its own right, the most interesting thing about Darkroom might be the story behind how it came to be.
Yesterday evening Apple crowned the best iOS and MacOS apps of 2019 and, unsurprisingly, a camera app managed to take the title of "iPhone App of the Year." Created by Lux Optics, the winner is Spectre Camera: an AI-powered app that allows you to capture high-quality long exposures with your smartphone.

VSCO's app for iOS is a go-to for many mobile photographers, and this week it's getting an important update: RAW support. But not just RAW support for your iPhone photos, VSCO's mobile app can edit RAW photos from your phone and DSLR.
Film fanatics have a new app to drool over today. Mastin Labs—purveyors of the self-styled "only" Lightroom and Photoshop presets "that truly match film"—is taking their obsessive devotion to accurate film emulation into the world of smartphone photography.
If you're using a smartphone to capture light painting photos, the phone is usually IN the photo as a light source. But the new Pablo app lets you actually use your iPhone as the camera, capturing light trails that mimic traditional long exposure shots.
Fotr is as close to film photography as you're likely to get out of your iPhone. The new iOS app acts just like a film camera: you have to buy "digital" film, and every single photo you take with that "roll" is printed... even the crappy ones.
Does waiting for your photos to develop make the experience of picture taking more enjoyable? More importantly, does it make you more deliberate about the photos you do take? Nevercenter Labs' answer to both of those questions is a resounding "yes," which is why they created a neat new smartphone photography app called 1-Hour Photo.
A new app called 'Flag' is exploding on Kickstarter today, and it's based on a very simple premise. The app will print and mail you museum quality, 220 gsm prints of 20 photos per month absolutely free... just as long as you allow them to place advertisements on the usually-blank back side of the photo.
That's it: no catch, no shipping charges, nothing. For now, you have to live in the US, but they hope to expand out soon.
Vertical Video Syndrome, or VVS, is a plague that photographers, videographers and just about everybody else have been trying to eradicate from the face of the Earth for some time now without much success. Thankfully, there's a ray of hope on the horizon. It's an app called, appropriately enough, Horizon, and it absolutely positively will not shoot vertical video, no matter how you hold your phone.
Yes, we're all fascinated by what you had for lunch. But sometimes actual news/history is shared in the Instagram universe, and now there's a convenient new way to browse through and find pictures of those events.
Back in mid-June, Yahoo! purchased Ghostbird and pulled the company's popular advanced mobile editing app PhotoForge off of the app store. If you weren't one of the lucky ones who purchased the app before it got pulled and you've been looking for a suitable alternative, look no further: Leonardo has you covered.
Apple's Photo Stream can be a useful feature if you use multiple devices to do your photo bidding. Take a photo on your phone, and it shows up on your iPad and computer instantly -- not too shabby.
But Photo Stream has limitations, most notably the ability to sync only your most recent thousand photos. That's why Jan Senderek decided to go out and create the Mac and iOS application Loom: an 'infinite camera roll' in the cloud that allows you to share and sync photos across all your devices easily.
Privacy concerns abound in the digital age, especially where pictures are concerned. With massive social networks like Facebook and Instagram offering more-or-less on/off security with little in way of customization, apps that allow you to take your photos' privacy in your own hands by deleting the photo after a set amount of time have taken off (think Snapchat and Facebook's Poke).
Secret.li is such an app, only it takes a different approach at making the Facebook sharing of photos more secure by combing the self-destructing function of Snapchat with a few other privacy-focused features.
The productivity service IFTTT (short for "if this then that") is a popular digital "glue" that ties different web services together. If you want to create a Facebook status every time you get an email, or automatically upload new photos to Flickr, the app allows you to do that.
And now, with the release of the company's brand new (not to mention free) iPhone app, IFTTT's influence is spreading to include a decent amount of functionality for smartphone photography lovers.
The flash built into your iOS device isn't anything to write home about. If you want something more capable, the general approach is to attach something more powerful, like a Kick Light or Manfrotto's KLYP flash. But there is another way to do it.
What if you could slave other phone's flashes? Something like it turned up in an Apple patent a while back, but a developer beat Apple to the punch by designing a camera app that does just that.
Step aside, rich kids of Instagram. There's a new group of people in town sharing images that are equally as unappealing and vomit-inducing. They're called doctors, and they've got themselves a new app dubbed Figure 1.
