2. Camera Bag (Platform: iPhone OS)

Camera Bag (Platform: iPhone OS): One of the original camera applications for the iPhone gets better every year. It is best known for its nine stylistic analog filters, ranging from the square-format Holga, the black and white Ansel, and the long, Cinema wide shot. There’s even an infrared setting! Each special effect has several variations, which can be determined by users by double-tapping the screen, which offers great artistic flexibility.

Pros: Unlike other camera apps on this list, you can use the filters on a picture from any of your albums saved online, on your PC, or directly on your phone. But it’s a must-buy due to its ColorCross feature. ColorCross processes different filters into a single image that result in striking, and infinitely varied, versions of photos.

Cons: It’s been known to stop working suddenly, causing frustration and constant boot-ups. The latest update promises to fix this bug.

Price: $2 for phone, $19 for desktop version
