The new iPhone 4 brings a better, 5MP camera to iPhoneography. How do your favorite iPhone photo apps work with the new hardware and the new iOS 4? I found that many of them work surprisingly well on the iPhone 4.
Some apps have already been updated to take advantage of the auto-focus camera introduced with the iPhone 3GS and many apps have recently been updated for iOS 4 compatibility.
Life In LoFi has created this searchable chart which lists how many of the popular photo apps (and even a few obscure ones) work with the new iPhone 4 and the new OS. The table also lists the maximum output resolutions and if there are any other known issues with the app. This isn’t necessarily an indication of how the apps will perform in iOS 4 on an older device, but how they perform on the iPhone 4.
See how your favorites fared below, after the jump.
iPhone 4 Photo App Compatibility
Newly added or recently updated apps will have an * next to their name.
Some apps that don’t support the Apple digital zoom feature use their own built-in digital zoom.
This table is an ongoing project and is updated regularly. Maximum resolution numbers may also include a second value to include compatibility with one of the 7MP or 12MP software cameras available. In these cases, actual maximum resolution may be higher. We didn’t run exhaustive tests to see how quickly the apps break, although with at least twice as much RAM as previous iPhones, I suspect that there will be far fewer memory-related crashes with apps.
Some apps may not be listed right away because we know that updates have been submitted to the App Store, but not yet released. We’ll add them as soon as they’re available.

IFB is always on the lookout for the best photo editing apps for bloggers of all niches. We know influencers of all levels want to present topnotch content to their followers. We also know how important it is to edit photos on the fly, before posting on various social media platforms.
There are a million best photo editing apps out there on the market. And we know you don’t have time to figure out which ones yield the best editing results. Let’s face it, the best photo editing apps change drastically from year to year, even month to month. If you’re still using Afterlight, VSCO or Color Splash to enhance your images before posting, you’re letting your photo editing game slide.
IFB has done an updated round up of the current top three best photo editing apps here on the blog. All three of the photo editing apps below are gimmick-free. Therefore, if you are looking to retouch their photos as professionally as possible from the comforts of their smartphones, keep reading. No funny business in this post, just IFB’s two-cents and the best photo editing apps out there on the market.
Snapseed – The Photographer’s Favorite (Cost: Free)
Snapseed is one of the most powerful and versatile photo editing apps out there. If you’re looking to achieve professional editing results when touching up images on your smartphone, this is the best photo editing app to use. New features on this app include a Double Exposure filter (for combining photos) and the ability to save Stacks (i.e. layers) of edits applied to an individual photo. Saved Stacks can then be used on other photos or shared with other Snapseed users in the future.
Snapseed offers plenty of other customization options as well. With eleven different tools (including text overlay) and thirteen different filters, it’s hard to get bored playing around on this Google-owned photo editing app.
Pro tip: One of Snapseed’s most impressive feature is Expand. This feature extrapolates what the area surrounding the subject might look like and uses this data to make the canvas larger. It’s very similar to Photoshop’s Content Aware Fill. It works best on images shot against a mostly plain or abstract background.
The only downside to using Snapseed? It might be “too professional” if you’re looking for a quick editing fix or gimmicky features (i.e. “Stickers”) to add into your photos. But it’s a favourite with photographers (IFB personally know a few that use it) and it’s free, so it’s worth giving this app a try.
Adobe Photoshop Express – The Purist’s Favorite (Cost: Free, but with strings attached…)
Want to keep the best of Adobe’s Photoshop right at your finger tips? You now can, if you download the Adobe Photoshop Express app onto your iPhone or Android.
The app is easy to navigate, making editing your images a breeze. It also includes all the basic Photoshop editing tools from the original desktop version including crop, rotate, brightness adjustment and red-eye correction.
But what really makes Photoshop Express stand out, in comparison to the rest of the best photo editing apps? Its selection of smart filters designed to correct common problems (like color temperature, fogging and exposure issues). It also has an excellent selection of borders and artistic events, all adjustable via the help of the Slider feature.
There is just one tiny downer. You will need to sign up for a free Adobe ID with your email address, Gmail or Facebook account in order to use the app. We are aware not everyone is interested in giving away their information, in exchange for using an app (even if it is one of the best photo editing apps out there). Yes, creating an Adobe ID may make it easier for users to access other Adobe products and services at a later time. But IFB can also understand why some prospective users might be a bit reluctant to exchange their information to try a “free” photo editing app.
Regardless, for many people, it’s a fair tradeoff for access to one of the best photo editing apps for free.
Facetune and Facetune 2 – The Selfie Addict’s Favorite (Cost: $5.99 for Facetune, Free for Facetune 2)
We know, we know. Facetune has been around for a while. And it is still one of the most popular photo editing apps on the market, if you’re looking to quickly retouch a selfie. The app allows its user to blur imperfections, adjust colors, whiten teeth, and even reshape faces and bodies with a few swipes of the finger. Many influencers swear by Facetune’s magical (or detrimental?) abilities.
Facetune 2 launched in 2016. In this updated version of the app users are provided with even more editing features, including a live editing tool. This new tool allows Facetuners to edit their selfies live, before actually snapping a picture of themselves and uploading it.
Wondering which is the better of the two Facetunes? According to techtimes.com “Facetune 2 is the clear winner compared to the first generation title. It is the better app of the two to download for many reasons.” You can read more about the differences between the two versions HERE, but it seems pretty clear to us that Facetune 2 wins the battle handsdown.
The only downside with Facetune is the cost of $5.99 to download the app. Facetune 2, although free to download, is only currently available to iOS users. If you’re the owner of an Android phone, you can forget about live editing your face before snapping a selfie. But it’s still one of the best photo editing apps to have in your arsenal. Especially if you’re a selfie enthusiast.

The Breakdown – 1 Set
1. Over-head lunges (30)
- Holding your weight directly overhead, lunge forward with your left leg so that your right knee touches the ground. Come back up to a standing position and repeat for your right leg. Alternate legs for 30 repetitions. Remember to keep your weight above your head for the entire 30 repetitions.
2. Mountain climbers (20)
- In a push-up position, bring your left leg up as close you’re your left hand as you can, then back down to your right leg. Alternate between your right and left legs for 20 repetitions. When you get into a rhythm, you might begin to bounce—try to minimize bouncing and keep your body parallel to the ground. You should feel toning in your hamstrings.
3. Side-to-side Planks (10)
- Starting in push-up position with your arms fully extended, turn your body to the left so that your left foot rests on top of your right and raise your left arm to the sky. Bring your arm down, and turn into push-up position. Repeat this, facing the right side now, and continue for 20 repetitions. Remember to put your feet on top of one another for a full rep.
4. Standing Squats (30)
- To finish, stand with your feet at shoulder-width, toes facing forward. With your arms raised in front of you, or to your sides, lower your butt until your quadriceps are parallel to the floor. Tip: keep an upright back and don’t look down at the ground.
