    I have several of the free, nearly free, and reasonably priced photography apps from the App Store and wondered what ones others are enjoying.

    TPE (The Photographer's Ephemeris) by far and away. Have it on my computer and iPhone. No brainer.

    I've had this on my iPhone for some time now, though I've never used it for photography. I use it on warm days when parking my truck at the end of the day to make sure my cab will be in the shadows as much as possible so I don't have to run the engine so much to keep cool.

    I live in Aperture and sometimes Photoshop. I don't really use anything else.

    I have Aperture, Photoshop Elements, Photomatix and Topaz on my Mac.

    On my iPad I use PhotoForge2, 100Cameras, Snapseed, Photogene and sometimes PS Express.

    On my iPhone I use Camera+, 100Cameras and PS Express. I have PhotoForge2 and Snapseed, but I use the iPad versions. I may get FilterStorm Pro at some point, too.

    I take it this is a portable media device thread (iPad/iPhone/etc), not a Mac software download via apple store thread?

    If so....

    Did you just get your iPhone4 :D


    I asked same Q a few months back when I got mine, some good mentions in that thread
    Tell me your "Top 5" iPhone photography related apps


    For me, I routinely do use on my iPhone4:
    -PS Express
    -AutoStitch (a few times)
    -Planets ; I like to know rising/setting times, plus it's 3D live view is way cool
    -APOD ; neat to see stuff
    -ez level+ ; to get my T1i level by holding it on the hotshoe
    -Compass; to orientiate the camera in specific direction
    -Field tools; great depth of field calculator
    -Canon Lens; cause its always nice to see other glass!

    ----------

    The iPhone version is....$8.99, kinda steep for a sometimes use app.
    I have it on my 27" iMac, I think for free??
    Yep, free for non iPhone/iPad version..

    This exactly. I never knew just how useful the iPhone could be for photography until I had the idea to try using it to aim my dSLR. I was using it for star trail shots, so I could know which ways was north, and it's great! Also, instead of ez level I use Gyroscope, because that also helps me find the celestial pole.

    Beyond that, Camera+ and Pano are the two photography apps I use regularly on my iPhone. Sometimes 360 Panorama if I want a quick panorama shot, but Pano yields much better results

    Photoshop + Bridge
    Aperture
    Photomatix Pro, including Aperture plugin.

    I had used Calico for stitching, but Photoshop does it so well now that I don't use Calico anymore.

    mackmgg - I just downloaded Gyroscope minutes ago, currently when setting up my Celestron CGEM EQ mount I go out @ dusk and get it pointing north by the compass app and 42.6 deg up (based on where I live), of course level. Will be intresting to comapre that with the Gyroscope app.

    For widefield tripod shots, like you stated that is a great helper, thx.

    Meant it for my MacBook and iPod. I may get an iPad in the near future, so am interested in hearing about those apps also.
