    PopBooth Photo Booth

    by Sincerely Inc.

    If you want to take something different than just a “regular” picture, check out PopBooth. It actually turns your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad into a mini photo booth. It’s a lot of fun at parties. Share the resulting photo strip via email and/or post on Facebook. If that’s not enough, for about $3, you can order a hard copy (actually, a set of two), and have it mailed right to you or a friend anywhere in the world.

    PhotoPad by ZAGG

    by ZAGG Inc.

    But whatever sort of photo you take, you may want to edit it. PhotoPad by ZAGG is a nice solid editing app. All the basics are covered, like crop, rotate, resize, color adjustment, and more. In addition, there are some nice touches like red eye correction and some basic filters. You can also use that photo you’ve just edited to create a ZAGGskin (decal for your iDevice) and order it right from within the app.

    moreBeaute2

    by More-thing Company Limited

    Universal app MoreBeaute2 is designed for use in portraits, to smooth and brighten complexions for a more youthful and beautiful look. However, I have also found it to be extremely useful for brightening up an underexposed photograph. Sure, you can use a regular editing app to increase the brightness, but sometimes the lighter areas of the photograph get blown out in the process. MoreBeaute2 will often do the job of brightening in a more gentle and natural way.
