iPhone photo apps: Floodgates open

I’m having fun slacking er, conducting important digital imaging research, starting to explore photography-oriented iPhone apps:


  • The free PangeaVR offers amazingly smooth panorama display and navigation.
  • Exposure (paid or ad-supported) promises to let you put "2 billion photos in your pocket," letting you browse Flickr from your handheld.  Groovy bonus point: it’ll show you images geotagged to locations near you.
  • Clowdy promises easy & free photoblogging.


Unfortunately for the capture-and-upload scenario, the camera in the iPhone is pretty rudimentary.  Doesn’t it seem like someone should build a wireless hookup between the phone & dedicated cameras?  That way you could, for example, put an Eye-Fi memory card into your camera of choice, then upload shots via the phone in your pocket?  Maybe that’s a solution in search of a problem, though, or maybe it would just kill your battery.


If you come across any particularly good or noteworthy apps, feel free to post your experiences here.

    When I hit the iTunes store, the other morning, I saw they are offering Super MonkeyBall, which has been one of my major addictions, on the Wii. ;)

    I downloaded a bunch of apps, some useful, some for play ~ It’d be nice to see
    Adobe get on the scene somehow (alongside their Flash progress), maybe a viewer for images in PSX or an acom buzzword viewer?
    Both would up the number of folk using the services over on our mac side of things.

    Scott Squires has a new app called Squiggles for paint and notes, and he’s open to suggestions:
    Roto on iPhone
    [Cool. I haven’t really seen one of these apps turn the corner from “can” to “should,” but it’ll be interesting to keep an eye on them. –J.]

    New version of Squiggles is available. Major upgrade with new features.
    Check the video and examples at the web site. Color stamps, overlay images, text layers, full spectrum of colors, paint smoothing, cursors, etc.
