photographers discuss – favourite apps

It seems as though you can get an app for just about everything these days so we asked photographers to discuss which were their favourite, and here’s what they said.

{For the purposes of this discussion apps are defined as: application. A small application that you use on your phone, mobile device, or web browser for fun or productivity.}

Leaca YoungmSecure is my new favourite. My brain can’t hold all these usernames and passwords, now I just have to remember one that will get me into the program. Well two, I have one on my phone as well.

A Sense of Place Photography – I use Tweetie for Mac on my MacBook. It helps me from obsessively logging into twitter to see new replies. It’s pretty cute too. I use Selective Tweets for messages I want to send to my Facebook account. I also use gmail Notifier, again, to cut down on always checking for new email. I just hear a sound and see a small pop up window whenever new mail comes in which keeps me relaxed and working on task, knowing that something else is scouting my correspondence for me

Dancing Tree Photography – I have an iPod Touch and I love it. Because I’m a geek I love my NPR app.

Silver Horse Photography – I just got a fun new one called Hipstamatic. It brings back the look, feel, unpredictable beauty, and fun of plastic toy cameras.

Sweet Eventide – I just got Square and I’m so excited about it! I’ll be able to accept credit cards at craft fairs!

Louise Knight-RichardsonHipstamatic is without a doubt my favourite, I’m in love! You buy different lenses, film, flashes, and filters. Interchange them for really cute “on the move” photos!

Steph Barcenas – I LOVE Hipstamatic and their print service is AMAZING! I just got back 24 4×4 prints and the quality is exceptional! Another great app is Instagram.

Andrea Baker – My favourite is Angry Birds. Our daughter got us into this single player game. The idea is to get 3 stars in each level and find the golden eggs. My husband and I find that we are always trying to out do each other. It’s fun. They also came out with a Halloween version and they had plushies made of the birds.

Aperture Agog – I’m on board with the Hipstamtic and Square. Both are great products. Square is the best deal for taking credit cards on your phone. For my iPhone I also enjoy Photobooth which does perfect photobooth style shots and Quad Camera that does quick shots in 4,6 or 8 multiplies. I also live on Mint to track all my shop expenses.
