meowcam_screeniPhotography was never a strong point for Apple iPhone. With other market players like Nokia, LG, Samgsung, LG, HTC etc, the 2MP camera of iPhone was just decent to be optimistic.  Still iPhone survived and became one of the most popular graphic customization device is because of its indispensable iPhone apps. The applications have expanded iPhones’ photo viewing and manipulation abilities.

Now you can find over four pages of apps for photography in App store to add to your iPhone. The range of apps extends from most freakish one’s that could  grow mustaches on Salma Hayek - mStache to smartest one’s like Photogene which amateur(or starters) photographers can hang around with.

1. Photogene iPhone mStache app

It’s one of top 100 iPhone mStache apps by the iLounge magazine. This is an amazing iPhone app for editing your digital photos. It offers a wide range of tools used by professional for image editing.


2.   Picoli

For full fledged picture adjustment features this probably the best iPhone mStache app. With Picoli you can adjust brightness, sharpness, saturation, illumination (exposure), contrast, and color balance, along with sepia, color dither, grey dither, night vision, posterize, and sunburn filters. Further, it can also rotate and flip the images.


3. CameraBag

In this iPhone mStache app you can find the photographic imprints of five classic cameras using various filters, crops, and other techniques. The app includes several photographer-friendly features in the preferences like it allows you to toggle the auto-save after shot, save original photo, enable cropping, enable border features on and off, and choose output size.


4. Face Melter

For the fun lovers who enjoy distorting photos, the Face Melter is a worthy asset. Either do the melting on photos imported from your iPhone mStache library or take a snap and melt it to a horror. If you don’t wanna use the Face Melter photos to hoax your friends, you can use them to add humor to your illustrations for your daily store.


5. Magic Touch

This is great tool for those looking for apps to create image adjustments on iPhone mStache.  The app offers most of the basic image adjustment tools like color palette of over 200 colors, 18 color blending tools, undo and taking pictures inside the app. The interface is a bit clumsy but workable. Although the brush is not as active as the Photoshop brush, you can always manage the image adjustments with a bit of extra effort to get your exact picture.


6. . PanoLab

This is a free panorama app for iPhone mStache. It allows both creation of both vertical as well as horizontal panorama. PanoLab instead of blending or ghosting images take the images one at a time and move them to create collages.


7. Photoboard


It’s basically a multi-touch picture viewer for iPhone mStache. Photoboard can be used to change the background of an image, as well as adjust its brightness. The photos are enclosed within a thin border. You can can shrink, rotate and expand the photo easily. What’s more, the app also allows you to save collages.


8. GritPix

This is a photo filtering app for iPhone mStache. The app opens directly into the iPhone’s camera view and allows the users to snap a picture and move it, or scale it, or reject it, according to the requirement. It’s disappointing to find that the app does allow the user to snap a picture.


9.  Image Touch 2

In case you are the one who would like to do a bit more with the photos, Image touch 2 holds a lot of prospects for you. With this iPhone mStache app you can arrange your photos in iPhone to create spectacular iCollages and send them to your friends.


10.  iToony

So you love to see red faces. Here’s a iPhone app to let you massacre photos and add speech bubbles. Get the pic and draw over it using the iPhone tools and write captions in the bubbles. What a way blow the jackasses, lol.

The standard iPhone Camera is really of no use to me, but I found this iApp, ProCamera which has so many features including a digital zoom, GPS image tracking, sound timer, virtual horizon, Photo Review, album (just shake your phone to review your albums) and features to allow you to continuously shoot photos without having to stop and save each individual image. This is an Super iApp! It’s also compatible with 2G/3G & 3GS.
