3. For Group Shots and Selfies: Self Timer Camera
Perfect family photo opp... but a) no one else is around to take it, or b) you're too awkward to ask. Find a surface, set the timer, get yourself in there, and — boom! — holiday card! Also excellent for obligatory sightseeing selfies.
4. For Full-Sphere Panoramas: Photosynth
The bustling city that lies before you can't be captured in one frame! Take shots in all directions, and the app will stitch them together. Plus, share your creations with the Photosynth community — showing off is encouraged!
5. For Pro Nature Photos: Pro HDR
Your phone's camera may have HDR built in, but this app goes WAY beyond, allowing you to capture everything from sunsets to foliage in flawless full resolution and automatically merging light and dark exposures. Welcome to the big leagues.
7. For Video Clips: Montaj
How about capturing that same snowboard jump, or perhaps the moment when your friend tries some crazy exotic food, as a video? Just shoot and shake to rearrange clips, and you can rewatch the highlights of your trip wherever, whenever.
8. For Slideshows: PicFlow
A photo to make you laugh, a photo to make you cry... Arrange with songs to match, and you've got one heck of a memorable montage. Share as a video with family and friends and get ready for some oohs and aahs.
9. For Adding Text to Photos: Phonto
Before you forget the name of the club where you danced the night away or that park where you people watched, add stylish text reminders to your photos. Perfect if your memory (and your handwriting) leave something to be desired.
10. For Postcards: Postagram
Nothing quite beats getting a real, paper postcard in the mail. Design and send photo evidence of your trip to your family and friends... or mail one to yourself so you'll have a memento waiting the second you arrive home!
11. For Journaling: Day One
So you're a writer too, huh? Leave the notebook at home and type entries into a timeline right on your phone. Exact time, date, and location will be tagged, and you can star your favorite entries to reread again and again.
12. For Organization and Storage: Trunx
This is your one-stop shop for organizing and safely storing all your photos in the cloud. Those babies won't be going anywhere!
13. And for Making Your Memories Really Stick: PicToMagnet
Pun intended. Pick a layout, choose your photos, tell 'em where to send the magnets and how you'll be paying... and soon every time you walk into your kitchen, a simple look at the fridge will take you back to all the places you'd rather be.
