It's no secret that smartphones have revolutionized the way we snap and share pictures. Photographs have become one of the most popular ways to communicate and share experiences online. It's estimated that as many as 880 billion photos will be taken in 2014, so get ready for a bunch more pictures on your Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram feeds. This huge popularity in photo sharing has also increased the popularity of photography apps, but with so many photo apps out there, it can be difficult to choose which one you should use. Many photo apps share a lot of similar features, but the apps listed below do a great job of differentiating themselves by offering a number of unique and helpful editing tools. For example, one app may cater more to users who love photo filters and another app may cater more to users who love editing each aspect of a picture manually.
