Mobile Photography & Art – My Top Five Apps by Tuba Korhan from Turkey

We are revitalising our Top Five Apps section to our Photo App Lounge column. This a section within TheAppWhisperer where we ask highly accomplished mobile photographers and artists to list their top five apps and to explain why they have selected them. Kicking us off today is accomplished mobile photographer and artist, Tuba Korhan from Turkey. Take a look at this! (foreword by Joanne Carter)


Snapseed is one of the earliest photo apps I purchased and  I’m still using it as the first step of my photo editing process. In my opinion with each upgrade the photo editing app gets better and better.

I use Leonardo for compositing. It is a universal app and the most important thing for me is, it still works fluently on my old iPad3. Leonardo supports Hi-Res images. Beside many others, layers and mask features are excellent and easy to use.

iColorama is one of my favorite apps although I even do not know how to use all of it’s features.

For me the best part of this art app is, it gives the capability of either edit an image with the presets or create an image from scratch.

I can describe After focus as the “portrait mode” of mobile devices older than iPhone7 Plus. It gives lens and motion blur effects. I use it not only for portraits but also in my street photography.

After iPhone’s native camera, Hipstamatic is my favorite camera app in street photography. Although I like it’s classic mode very much, nowadays I prefer to use the new pro-mode and editing suite in my photos.
