Having consulted over 3,870 posts where we asked award winning mobile artists for their favourite apps, we feel confident publishing this article today. Everything is relative and following extensive research we are happy to announce that these are TheAppWhisperer’s Top 10 iOS Mobile Art Apps, at this moment in time. We have not included apps more completely suited to mobile photography, they will be included in another post. There are of course, more than ten good art apps but these ones, should be standard on every mobile photographer’s device. Do you recommend something else? That’s great, just add your recommendations to the comments at the end of this post…
Halide have developed an update to their popular mobile photography app specifically for the new Apple iPhone 11 and iPhone Pro. The latest update includes a tactile lens switcher, allowing for a fast and intuitive way to switch between the Wide, Ultra Wide and Telephoto lenses on the iPhone Pro. What makes this switcher really unique is that once you’re familiar with the menu, you can press-and-flick from the lens button to quickly change lenses. This is a fast, natural way to switch lenses.
Yesterday, 3 June 2019, Apple previewed iPadOS, the powerful operating system with a new name to recognise the distinctive experience of iPad. iPadOS builds on the same foundation as iOS, adding powerful new capabilities and intuitive features specific to the large display and versatility of iPad. Introducing new ways to work with apps in multiple windows, more information at a glance on a redesigned Home screen and more natural ways to use Apple Pencil, iPadOS also benefits from the great new updates in iOS 13, making it the perfect device for consumers and creative pros alike.
“iPad transforms how people work and express their creativity, and with iPadOS, we’re taking it even further by delivering exciting capabilities that take advantage of its large canvas and versatility,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. “iPadOS delivers exciting features, including a new Home screen with widgets, more powerful multitasking and new tools that make using Apple Pencil even more natural.”
We have another brand new section here at TheAppWhisperer called ‘On My Radar’ and this time we are asking a selection of highly talented mobile photographers and artists, which apps they would take with them on a unique desert island, that has wifi! We want to know exactly what apps are really on their radar and why. As well as eight apps, we have also allowed each artist to select a book and a luxury object on this luxury journey. Kicking us off with our ninth issue of this section, is non other than the highly talented Gerry Coe from Northern Ireland.
“Delighted to have been asked to contribute to this column. A lot of the apps I use have already been mentioned before but it is the way that people use them to get their effects that makes the difference. As a professional photographer of over 50 years I have seen many changes and never thought I would embrace the idea of a “telephone” to take pictures! But I have embraced this new technology and just love my phone and taking pictures with it”.
Today, Adobe has announced extensive updates to the Lightroom ecosystem, including new features that help you become a better photographer, collaborate and take your editing to the next level.
This release introduces a new Home view in Lightroom for iOS and Android (coming soon to Mac and Windows) that contains your most recent images; interactive tutorials that are viewable directly within Lightroom; and inspirational photos with behind-the-scenes access to how each image was edited. Photography educators including Matt Kloskowski, Katrin Eismann, Kristina Sherk and Nicole Young have contributed tutorials and photos for today’s release, and more content will be added regularly.
Additional new features introduced in this release include:
- You can now invite others to view and add photos to your albums through email or a shared link. When someone contributes, you’ll have access to their full resolution photo in the format that was added to your album, including raw files.
- A new Texture slider designed to help either accentuate or smooth medium-sized details such as skin, bark and hair.
- Batch editing in Lightroom for Android, Flat-Field Correction in Lightroom Classic and Defringe for Lightroom on Mac and Windows have also been introduced.

Hi, everyone! I’m back with another How I Did It!™ video tutorial, this one on using Lightroom CC for capturing and processing RAW files.
Capturing and processing RAW files has long been the standard among traditional photographers due to the increased quality that can be attained from RAW files. Now, the power of RAW shooting and processing and the resulting quality is available on mobile devices. In the video, I share tips about shooting RAW and processing RAW files in Lightroom CC on the iPhone. (Lightroom CC also runs on Android phones.)
Thanks for watching and thank you for your support of past videos. If you have particular topics you’d like me to cover in the future, I invite you to share your suggestions by emailing me at RadDrew@raddrewphotography.com!

Rumoured for some time, but now Spectre is available in the App Store. Spectre is an AI-powered shutter for your iPhone, allowing the user to create interesting long exposures.
The long exposures are live in the moment. Spectre saves the entire exposure process as a Live Photo, allowing the user to re-play the exposure as it happened.
We hope to learn more about Spectre in the coming days as we put it through our processes. In the meantime, you can download it here.
