Give your digital photos the feel of analog, with the ability to (digitally) swap lenses, film and flash settings with the swipe of a finger.
The iPhone 4 features a 5-megapixel sensor, an LED flash and a 5x digital zoom. While that's certainly an impressive piece of hardware to have on the handset, the wizards at Apple's App Store can take your photos farther than you could have ever thought possible. The emphasis for many of the dozens upon dozens of apps is on making them look vintage—the list below includes some of the funkier and more fantastic of the bunch—but several apps are also designed to pump up the volume in different ways. There are high dynamic range (HDR) apps that fill your shots with mesmerizing color and detail, or sketch programs that give portraits a hand-drawn look. In addition to apps that allow for adjustments and enhancements, apps for collages and photobooth-style strips give you the ability to create multiple memories from a selection of photos. Best of all, most of these apps also include upload capabilities to let you share your favorites on social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and others. Whatever it is you're looking to do with your iPhone photos, rest assured the App Store has something for every shutterbug at heart.
