Three of the Coolest Photo Apps Around

Still digital cameras

Impromptu digital camera shoots with your smartphone are always fun, even if the pictures aren’t so flattering, but why just use your basic apps to take these pictures? Using other apps besides Instagram to take and edit photos can make these spontaneous digital camera shoots even more fun.

Here are some of the coolest photo apps available for iPhone or Android.


Afterlight is one of the most popular photo editing apps available for iOS right now. With its vintage filters, users can easily recreate old-timey photo effects, which can add a sense of nostalgia and history to any digital camera shoot. Though it’s not free, it’s definitely worth the price.


Have you ever taken an awesome selfie, but then never posted it because you were too embarrassed by a pimple, the bags under your eyes, or by your teeth? With Facetune, you can fix all that. It can make each of your digital camera shoot’s photos perfect by eliminating blemishes or wrinkles, whitening smiles, emphasizing details, and more.

Slow Shutter Cam.

Have you ever seen those pictures of people using sparklers to spell things? These photos are the result of long exposure shots, which the slow shutter cam can replicate. It takes a little bit of practice to get used to the app, but before you know it you can make some seriously wicked awesome pictures.

Unfortunately, going to online camera stores and buying a bigger, better camera will not make you a better photographer — but buying these apps might. With a little bit of help and a lot of practice, your digital camera shoots will start going much more smoothly, yielding more interesting pictures.
