8 Android Apps for Photographers

I recently read a study on the use of smart technology, including smart phones and tablets. While iPhones currently make up about 9 percent of the total cell phone usage, Androids make up around 13 percent. And while many apps are made for a variety of different technology, I thought I would provide a list of 8 popular apps specifically for Androids.

CamCalc and CamCalc Free

Go Visual, Inc offers two programs – CamCalc and CamCalc Free ($1.99 for the pay version). Ths app is designed to help photographer with exposure, and is a handy camera calculator for out in the field. It helps with depth of field, focal length equivalents, flash calculations, color temp conversion, and more.


PHOforPHO is a free set of phone tools for serious photographers. It includes an exposure calculator, hyperfocal calculator, timer, DoF calculator, and exposure compensation calculation for multiple exposures.

Camera Magic

Camera Magic gives your Android’s camera more punch. It offers digital zoom with proper upscaling, a timer, filters, whitebalance, and volume to zoom camera.

Color FX

Color FX allow you to create dramatic images by highlighting color wherever you choose. The app will turn the entire image gray – then you pain/splash color where you choose.

Collage Creator Lite

Want to create a collage from more than one photograph? Use Collage Creator Lite. Place photos together in a collage format, shuffle them until you have it right, then save it as wallpaper or share it with friends.

Little Photo

Little Photo  gives you the ability to add film and retouch effects to your photographs.

Photoshop Express for Android

Photoshop Express for Android gives you the favorites of Photoshop in a mobile application. Fix photos by cropping, straighten, rotate, flip and adjust the colors. Add borders, enhance with filters and effects. Then share your photos through email, or on places like Facebook and Twitpic.

  1. You might like to check out 2 very notable absences from your list: Vignette, which is both a camera app and a post-processing app in the one package, and PicSay which is a post-processing suite that has far more uses than just adding text and frames; it also lets you adjust colour balance, saturation, contrast, apply pseudo-HDR effects, lomography effects, and so on.
