I just looked at my phone and I have 2,763 photos in my photo stream, which I’m thinking makes me a bit of a photo-obsessed when it comes to my kids (or at least one that needs to learn how to clean out her photos). But, I don’t even care I barely have any memory left because I love those photos so much. I love taking them and then looking at them when I have a few seconds in line at the supermarket; I love sharing them with my family and friends; I love printing them out (fine, very occasionally), and marvelling at how much the kids have grown and how much we’ve done together.

That little phone holds a world of memories and good times in it, which, of course, then need to be organised, backed up, prettied up, and shared, all of which can be overwhelming and time-consuming if you don’t have the right apps. Fortunately, I also happen to be really into photo apps. From quick editors that take photos from blah to stunning, to set-it-and-forget-it auto backup tools, download these photo apps stat (that is, if you can spare the room on your phone). Check them all out in the slideshow.
