Photography is one of my absolute favorite sections of the app store. The iPhone’s impressive combination of cameras and technology gives developers an amazing platform on which to build some wildly creative and highly functional applications. Whether you’re a professional photographer or a complete beginner, you can’t help but appreciate the variety and quality of photography apps that are available, most of the time for less than $2.
Today we’ve rounded up 100 of our favorite photography apps for you to check out. 100 apps is a lot to browse to we’ve made it easier by placing each app into one of eight categories: Lomo & Retro, Photo Booth, Multiple Effects & Tools, Photography Utilities, Tilt Shift and DOF, Silly & Fun, Panoramic, Video and HDR.
If you don’t know already, for the past four years since the iPhone’s inauguration, Apple has released a handset in the summer (normally June or July). This has been to much fanfare as most evangelists haven’t had their hands on a new one since the previous year. However, it’s only February and one iPhone version has already been launched. Then there’s rumors of the white one coming out next and then the iPhone 5 in the summer?
Would Apple really release three versions of it’s device throughout the first half of the year? Let’s see if we can debunk those rumors!

The geniuses behind Foursquare had a simple but brilliant idea: a location-based social network. Wouldn’t it be cool if you could send a quick shout to all your friends telling them where you are? However, this wasn’t enough. The real innovation that made their idea work was that they realized there would need to be some incentive to come back and use the app. A goal system with prizes was born and the rest is history. Foursquare now works across several mobile platforms and boasts millions of daily users.
Foursquare began in 2009 and triggered the social check-in revolution that is still very much in its infancy. Today we’re going to look at what developments have been made in this area in addition to a few notable newcomers that you might want to check out.

The rumor mills are alive with speculation about the iPhone 5, which will supposedly be coming this summer. With these rumors comes the tale of a mythical device that we haven’t heard mentioned in quite some time: the iPhone Nano.
When the very first iPhone was released, it took spin-artists no time to convince the media that Apple was working on a new smaller version. This device would of course be cheaper and more compact than the normal iPhone and would hopefully appeal to customers not willing to shill out for the big version.
Of course, years later we know that these rumors were 100% fabricated and not the least based in reality. Yet here we are again, four years later and the rumors have resurfaced. Could Apple finally be ready to expand the iPhone line with a smaller version? More importantly, do you care?
Let’s say the rumors are true and Apple releases an iPhone Nano in a few months, would you buy one? Vote in the poll above, then leave a comment below and let us know, regardless of whether or not you want to buy one, if you think it’s a good strategy. Do you know people that would jump on the idea of a smaller, cheaper iPhone?
