In Pictures: 12 crazy good iOS photography apps

An Apple iPhone ad that aired in April claimed, "Every day, more photos are taken with the iPhone than any other camera", and I can believe it. Not only are there are a boatload of iPhones in the wild, there are a huge number of apps that enhance and improve on Apple's default camera app making photography more accessible, more creative, and more social. This is a collection of some of the best and most interesting apps available.

Smart Trigger (free) remotely triggers DSLRs from your iPhone or other iOS device that supports Bluetooth Low Energy (LE). It requires the Satechi Smart Trigger hardware ($44.99) which supports a range of cameras from Canon and Pentax. The app allows you to take a regular photo, a long exposure (bulb mode), or capture a time lapse sequence (you'll need another app such as the free GoPro CineForm Studio to stitch the individual exposures into a video). The Smart Trigger system works fine in regular mode but for the other modes it might be inconvenient to stay within 30 feet of the hardware and keep the app running.
