Top 5 iPhone Photography Apps – Ivo Coric – Photo App Lounge

Welcome to our new Photo App Lounge section of This is a very small area on our site where we ask highly accomplished iPhone photographers what their top five photo apps are and why.

Kicking us off today is Ivo Coric, we previously interviewed Ivo in our A Day In The Life series, if you missed that you can read it here. Ivo was born in a very beautiful country, ex Yugoslavia, in the city of Mostar and had a wonderful childhood until the war. He was there for one year of the war and tried desperately to escape the madness which took over the people and nation. In the fall of 1993 he came to beautiful Holland which is now his home base. In his home country Ivo achieved a diploma in Chemical Analyst and in Holland he has studied Graphic Design.

Ivo is quite new to IPhoneography, taking photographs is his passion. Recently his image ”bird on the pole” was chosen for photo of the week by WIAM and he was also thrilled to be asked to be interviewed for TheAppWhisperer. ‘I couldn’t be more happy. Thank you Joanne for this wonderful opportunity!’.

We caught up with Ivo in between shoots and asked him what his top five photo apps are, this is what he said…



Copyright Image – Ivo Coric – ‘Ballad (Transience of life)’ – Apps Used – CameraPro, Snapseed, Textures+, Image Blender, Paint fx


Number 1 – ProCamera



‘I started with hipstamatic, but i use it less than Pro- camera, wich i think is the great app. I especially love the speed and picture quality. Sometimes I use Camera+, it’s also a great app with very good editing options. I have to say Procamera is my favorite so far!’



Number 2 – Image Blender



‘Image Blender is an awsome app! You can use it in so many ways: To create beautiful apstracts by masking and blending different images. I offten use it if i use the same picture with diffrent apps and like some of the effects of the particular app, but not the whole picture, then I use Image Blender to blend the best quality’s of both images. It is definitely amust have app.’



Number 3 – Snapseed



‘Great for croping and straightening with great filters, I especially like the drama filter, it is also very good for black and white images, selective tunning is also very handy.’



Number 4 – TouchRetouch



‘I like this app for removing unwanted object in original picture, or in the fine tunning after applaying effects to remove unwanted blemishes.
I find this app very useful’.



Number 5 – Photoforge 2



‘This is a good app, I especially like the Pop! Cam filter within it. It allows me to apply diffrent lenses, films, textures etc. I also like to combine this app with PicBooster which has some very nice overlays’.
