Top 10 Cheap Mobile Photography Apps

9. Hipstamatic (iPhone OS)

Hipstamatic (iPhone OS): The Hipstamatic iPhone app is a best seller because it is alternately the simplest app, offers great variety, and most importantly, consistently takes the best vignette-style pictures.

Pros: It is by far the best Lomo-style application. You can choose from a series of lenses, films, and gel effects while using one of the best UIs out there. Because it uses specific toy and old-school camera replications, the resulting pictures have a truly authentic feel. Plus, newly added social networking features make it easy to show off your latest photos on Twitter and Facebook. You can even get real analog prints made.

Cons: Up-selling features are never fun, and Hipstamatic’s price range for additional effects can seem quite pricey. Instagram, an application with similar features to Hipstamatic, is available for free.

Price: $2 for regular app, varied pricing for additional apps
