Slow Shutter Cam (£0.79)

Allows you to take control of the shutter speed to blur water or lights. An excellent complement to your in-house camera app.


Bubbli (free)

An app that allows you to create interactive ‘bubbles’ which transport viewers to your location in a way that a photograph never could. It works indoors too, but truly excels at a viewpoint.


Enlight (£2.99)

A superb all-round editing app, Enlight contains everything a phone photographer needs to add shine to their images through a wonderfully simple and effective interface.

VSCO Cam (basic is free)

Not as comprehensive as Enlight for editing, but beautifully designed, great to use and also features an outlet to post images direct from the app to a personalised web page.


Storehouse (free)

An elegant, simple photo journal app which allows users to upload images and text to create a story which can be shared directly to social media or sent as a private link to friends.

Wander Co (free)

A brand new app, and much like Storehouse in its style. But Wander Co also tracks your walk through your phone’s GPS, giving a distance, time etc, and adds photos to a map so friends can see where everything happened!

NB. Some of these apps are only available on iPhone.
