25 Photosharing apps (a list in development)

Share Button

Ever since our campaign with Topshop where we used photosharing app Instagram we’ve become obsessed with photosharing apps, so we thought it would be interesting to collate a list of current photosharing apps that are available on the market and how they enable you to share photos.

Much like our list of social media management tools wiki, this is an ongoing project, so if you know of any others please let us know so we can add them to the list.

Other fun apps with no photosharing options include:

  • Tiltshift (iphone): use the Tilt-shift technique to brings objects located near and far into focus. It allows you to focus in on a specific part of the photo, while blurring the surrounding image.
  • Camerabag - (iphone): has 8 different filter effects which you can apply to your photos.
  • Comic touch -(iphone): add comic speech bubbles to your photographs.
  • Picoli – (iphone): brighten; sharpen and apply multiple filters to you photographs.
  • Pano – (iphone): Select or take a few consecutive pictures which Pano will then stitch together to create a panorama photograph.
  • Blurb – (iphone): Create stories using photos, videos and audio sourced from mobile devices.
  • Night camera – (iphone/Android): helps you make your night photographs less blurry, more sharpened and more precise.
  • PhotoCalc – (iphone/Android): not a photo taking app; it enables you to calculate the correct exposure and flash settings.

Apps added since the list was published:

  • Mobypicture – shoot and share on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, WordPress, Hyves and more. Available on iphone, android, blackberry and Nokia.

    Thanks for the list. I tend to try many photo apps myself.
    A few more which I tried and liked – each one for different reasons (all are for iPhone, not sure about Android):
    Photosynth, 360 – panoramic/photo stitching
    Live FX
    Sketch
    100 Cameras

    Posterous isn’t a photosharing solution but you can you use it for that too and the iPhone app is just great.

    No I hadn’t Mickaelv – thanks for the suggestion. Is Pictarine more of an aggregator rather than a photosharing app or have I got the wrong end of the stick?!
