Ever since mobile phone manufacturers began designing their products with more advanced camera technologies, people have become more motivated to pay closer attention to the way they capture images and the way the resulting snapshots look.
If, in earlier decades, people could only use cameras that used film and each roll could only produce a limited number of shots.
However, digital camera features (now present in most mobile phones) allow people to take photos, study the results, and use all kinds of editing tools to crop out unwanted images, improve the color or lighting, and add texture.
Because people process images at 400-500x faster than they do words…carefully planned and executed images are an easy way to establish authority and build your brand. Using your iPhone and a few apps is all you need these days.
By now, pretty much every owner of a mobile or smart phone will have had experience in using the highly popular Instagram app.
This innovation has inspired everyone, from young children to grandparents, to take photos of everything under the sun so that they can instantly share them online through social media sites.
If you are trying to set yourself apart as an expert in your industry, you have a great opportunity to use this to your advantage, but not doing it…or doing a bad job at it, can damage you.
Here are six examples of some of the best iPhone camera apps that you can try out today.
This is an app that’s ideal if you like putting text on top of your images. Several different fonts, styling options, colors and background are available. Easy way to create a quick meme using nothing but your iPhone.
2. SnappyCam Pro
If you always find yourself pressing the camera button a fraction of a second too late to capture an excellent photo, download this app. It’s a high-speed camera app that requires you to hold the shutter button down as you take a photo, producing a burst of photos from which you can select the best.

Vintage is always attractive when it comes to photography, and there’s definitely an app for that. Retromatic is a ’50s-inspired app that you can use to import photos, cut them out using an instant alpha tool, and apply vintage effects.
