These are 20 of my favorite iPhone apps for photography and field guiding support (as of 28 February 2019).
I only use the full (paid) version of each app. Free versions are usually limited in functionality and have adverts, which I do not like 🙂
Most of these apps are available for IOS and Android, but I have only tested and used them on iPhones.
Please let me know in case you have any other favorite app for photography or field guiding support – Thanks!
