“Thank you very much for asking me to share my top 5 apps with TheAppWhisperer and its readers. Even though I have countless apps on my phone/iPad, I tend to use the following applications, the most”.


Snapseed is the first app I use after taking photos with the native camera on my iPhone 7Plus.  With their most recent update, Snapseed offers a wide array of options for editing photos.




Hipstamatic is one of the first applications (along with Snapseed) that stole my heart.  I love the freedom it gives with using various films, lenses and flashes.  There is no limit in the amount of amazing results one can have. As a result, I own all the films, lenses and flashes Hipstamatic has ever introduced.  One of my favorite pastimes is exploring the possibilities of combinations.



I am in love with this application.  It takes the most intense black and white photos.  If you want dramatic results, I highly recommend Provoke. It is extremely user friendly.



Even though this is a newer application in the market but it has stolen my heart.  I love the various acidy effects it has to offer.



This application is my favorite when it comes to layering.  It took me a while to learn my way around but when I did, I am very pleased with the outcomes.
