iOS devices are gaining popularity when it comes to taking and editing photos. In fact, Flicker usage statistics show that the most-used camera on Flickr is the iPhone.
The App Store is full of unique and amazing photo editing apps that rival anything available on any mobile operating suite. Below are just a few favorite apps and why they’re so great.
Facetune is a fun and easy-to-use photo editor with an emphasis on retouching portraits and personal images. Facetune enables you to intuitively and easily remove unwanted blemishes, re-touch bags under the eyes, and make subtle changes to skin tone and texture. For a smartphone photo manipulation app, the results are incredible. Facetune is capable of 8MP images, and images it processes can be shared through Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or email.
Facetune is currently available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch through the iTunes store for $2.99.

FXCamera is a popular and highly-rated app designed for photography use and photo effects. FXCamera allows you to take creative photographs and apply more than 40 filters and effects to them. FXCamera’s site claims it will enhance your creativity, and after a few minutes playing with FXCamera, you may agree.
A unique feature of FXCamera is the “Voice Picture,” which enables a user to record an audio message while taking pictures. These “spoken captions” are attached to pictures, and FXCamera makes it easy to share these images across social media. With its selection of frames, effects, filters, and more, FXCamera is one of the best free photo apps available. Best of all, when you share a photo taken on Facebook or Twitter, FXCamera will donate a penny to the Japan Water Forum, a group that seeks to provide clean, safe water for all.
iPhone users rejoice: the popular photo app for the iPad has finally come to the iPhone. If you use an iPhone, you’ve probably noticed that the basic Camera app that comes standard is a little weak and offers few effects. Camera+ is an incredible alternative, and will fill the role of taking photos, as well as editing them. Camera+ excels at editing, with a vast selection of features on par with Photoshop. It even offers camera stabilization, digital zoom and a Lightbox feature that allows you to skim through photos and discard the bad ones. With more than one million sold, Camera+ is one of the most popular photo apps for the iOS and is available for just 1.99 through the iTunes store.
