A while back a friend of mine told me about the wonders of the Toy Camera application for the iPhone. I bought it immediately (only $1.99!). This app basically lets you edit your photos without uploading them to the computer and prettying them up in Photoshop. You can add vintage color effects and change the saturation. Is Toy Camera a replacement for my beloved Photoshop? No way. But it’s a fun little tool to impress your friends and/or lovers.

The new app that I discovered today that I really like is TiltShift Generator (aka Fake DSLR), brought to us by the creators of Toy Camera (Art & Mobile). Only 99 cents, this application allows you to change the contrast and brightness as well as the saturation of your photos, and add either a radial or linear blur. Kinda neat. Kinda fun. I think I got my money’s worth.
