Of course, these photo apps aren't just for moms, but I find myself using these most to share photos of my kids with my friends, family, and social networks! Here is a list of the five photography apps I use daily:
1. Rhonna Designs ($1.99)
I am addicted to this app! Add frames, beautiful text, and designs (such as bokeh) to your photos with the Rhonna Designs app. Adjust color, play with custom masking, and make beautiful images to share. This app is also great for making text-only images such as quotes and memes and sharing them with your friends and social networks.
2. Snapseed (free)
In addition to cropping and adding filters, this app allows users to make multiple edits to the brightness, ambiance, contrast, white balance, and color saturation of a photo. My desert sunset pictures never look the same through the camera lens as they do in real life, so Snapseed is my go-to app to bring the color back to these pictures before sharing them on my social networks. If a photo of your child is too dark, too light, or needs some other adjustments, Snapseed is the app for you!
3. Instagram (free)
I love the social aspect of Instagram. You can add filters to your photos, and then share them with other Instagram users. There's also an option to share your photos to Facebook or Twitter.
4. Pic Stitch (free)
If you want to combine several pictures into a collage, Pic Stitch is the easiest way I have found to do it. About 70 different collage layout choices are available in Pic Stitch, and within the photo editor there are options to enhance, add filters, and add frames and stickers among other choices. You can even make your photo into an Internet meme!
5. A Beautiful Mess ($0.99)
This app lets you add your own text with fun fonts, pre-made phrases, hand-drawn doodles, and great borders. I find myself using this app most often before sharing on Instagram—I might be a little addicted to it. There are several in-app purchases to gain access to even more phrases and doodles, but the A Beautiful Mess allows access to a large amount of overlays with the $0.99 purchase price.
