Now, from vintage to groovy, pop art to panoramic, whatever your imagination craves, there’s an app to help create stylistic photos. These photo apps for iPhone (or iPod Touch) let you click and tap your way to hip, artsy, professional-style photographs.

Learn more about a few of my favorite photo apps in the gallery above.

And once you’re hooked, keep up with the latest and greatest at or push your creative edge with The Art of iPhoneography, both great resources for mobile creativity.
