Top 50 Free Mobile Photography Apps for Android and iPhone

Do you ever wonder who takes pictures with cameras anymore? You look around and it seems like people always have their phones out at concerts, in scenic places, or when something newsworthy is happening. You don’t really see regular cameras anymore.

Maybe that’s not so surprising. Cell phones nowadays take great photos. It’s hard to image what it would be like if we weren’t able to take photos on our phone. The moments that we would fail to capture, the memories that disappeared.

In fact, there is a large group of people who grew up with cells phones and don’t know any other way.

Luckily that’s not a problem anymore because phone designers are constantly improving their cameras.

Why Use Photography Apps?

Whether you are a beginner or an expert, photography apps can help improve your photos. You can add filters, edit out redeye, or add some special touches to make it look even better than before.

These types of apps are great because they allow for exploration. This means that beginners can figure things out on their own, while experts get to play with their sense of style and discover new things.

You would be surprised at how one app can change your photo’s style, mood, and looks. There are some that can make your photo actually look like it’s been drawn or painted.

All these apps are great for enhancing your photos for profile pictures, artwork, blogs, and so much more. If you end up liking photo editing more than you thought you would, maybe think about investing some money into it.

Some apps that start out as free have in app purchases. If you are hesitant to spend money on a photo editing app, maybe look into one that you have. This way it may only be a couple of dollars and it’s an app you are already familiar with.

While these top 50 free mobile photography apps are great, there are some that have more features. They may help with finer details, give more options for filters, and customization options.

But for now, these apps are good for anyone that is either dabbling in photography or is on a budget.
