7 new iPhone photography apps that you should download now



Here at The Next Web, we’re big fans of iPhoneography, and are always on the look out for new, interesting apps that make the art of taking photos using your iPhone easier, more enjoyable, and gives you a variety of ways to share those photos with others.
From the Instagram-inspired filter craze, to interesting frames and easy ways to back up your photos to the cloud, there’s a little bit of something in here for everyone.
These 7 apps are a great addition to the arsenal of apps you already have on your phone that help you get the best shots you can out of your iPhone. So, here they are, in no particular order:

Fuzel

We’ve seen quite a few apps that let you create montages of photos you’ve taken with your iPhone, choosing from a variety of layouts. None of them are quite as elaborate as the $0.99 app Fuzel.
The app comes with 36 preset layouts of varied widths and aspect ratios, many of which we haven’t seen in any other similar apps. In addition to the preset layouts, you can create your own customized layouts using the ‘cut’ feature. Simply choose the blank layout (or a preset that you want to edit) and swipe the new lines into the grid.
Once you’ve got your layout ready, add photos either from your camera roll, or by taking shots on the spot. You can also tweak the thickness and colour of the outlines, and choose from 17 frames to jazz up your collages.
It seems that no camera app is complete without filters these days, so it’s not surprising to find that Fuzel comes packed with 18 filters, with the ability to apply them to individual photos. You can also zoom into show only a specific part of each image, and rotate images to boot.
