  • We Are Juxt

    From all of us at We Are Juxt, thank you for including us in this great list of resources!

    We will add you to our blog roll as well and appreciate all the love that this great community of creatives brings. We are honored to be a part of such a loving and supportive community!

    Thank you Emil!

    • Of course, how could I possibly leave you out. You’re doing such a great job!

      Thanks for mentioning my site on your sidebar!

  • tracymg

    Time to update the list? 🙂

  • tracymg

    Pixelapper seems to be a gambling web site, IPA is defunct, LifeinLoFi is not updating with much regularity. Bob Weil is now offering a course, Susan Tuttle I believe also offers classes (but not sure she has a blog) – just off the top of my head..

  • So happy to have been included on the update as well. Thanks Emil!

  • Thanks so much Emil for including my blog! Btw, I have just rebranded my blog to Davide Capponi iPhoneography

    • Thanks for letting me know, I somehow didn’t notice the change 🙂

  • Thank you Emil, honoured to see Skipology included amongst these amazing resources.

    • Keep up the good work Paul!

    • thehealthyeatingsite

      I love the Skipoolgy blog. It’s great to see someone taking the time to share such artistic techniques. I know how much time goes into posts like that. I really appreciate it. Inspiring just to look at, and so much more if you want to learn new techniques too. Storm in a Teacup is one of my all-time favorite iPhone photos (and great title too!).

  • atsash

    Thank you for letting us know about some great resources. I will definitely have to check them out!

  • Claudia

    I really love reading all the blogs here but there is one thing that ai have to get off my mind…I don’t read anything about Combo Apps or Tina Rice on the website. In my honest opinion she is one of the best !!! Maybe is an interview with her an idea???

  • lalaithbr

    Yeah, I’m with Claudia. I think Combo Apps by Tina Rice is one of the best blogs nowadays and you forgot to mention it.
    I like some of the other you mention too… But this one is really missing.

  • gilkicker weevil

    yes I was going to say how about Combo Apps, definitely up there with the rest of these great blogs

  • Wayman_Stairs

    I also wonder why combo apps blog got left out? it is a great resource for tutorials, app and mobile equipment reviews and sweet giveaways

  • Danny

    Great list! I agree with others Combo Apps should be included on this list.

  • rjllane

    Hello Emil. Pleased to see that you helping us all to keep up with the world of iPhone photography. The landscape as far as blogs and websites is concerned is going through a major change as noted by others in the comments. I cross-referenced your list against the various resources that I value, and like the last few people to comment here, I would note that Combo Apps is one of the most active sites at the present time.

    Keep up the posts and have fun taking photos … MomentsForZen (rjllane)

  • Una

    Combo Apps is my main resource!

  • Fredrik Nilsson

    I agree with some of the others. You should definitely add Combo Apps. Having been a member of the mobile photo community I can say that Combo Apps is one of the few I still follow. There are other good sites, but I like how the blog tries to evolve with its readers without losing its distinct flavour. I’ve tried to run blogs myself, and I can attest that is hard to do.

  • Denise

    Hi Emil, Thank you for the list! There are a lot of good sites mentioned here! One blog site which bears mentioning, is: “Combo Apps: Mobile Extreme Editing” found at Tina willingly shares her extreme expertise in editing skills with her easy to understand tutorials. Tina also shares reviews of photography apps, giving you the knowledge of whether you want to download the app reviewed. Also, there are many in depth reviews on accessories for your phone. There is a wealth of information to be found at Combo Apps, and I always look forward to receiving emails for her newly posted tutorials/reviews.

  • lalaithbr

    So, why, Emil, did you deleted my suggestion comment? Really. I’m not pleased at all with your childish attitude. It was merely a suggestion – you could go for it or not. I even said that I was pleased with some of the blogs you chose! I don’t understand.

    • I deleted all comments mentioning a particular resource because the owner of that resource directed people to this page asking them to leave a comment promoting that resource. Who’s being childish here?

    • lalaithbr

      Well, If I didn’t intended to comment at first – regardless of what you said. I wouldn’t. I am a very sincere person and didn’t like my comment deleted. I don’t do nothing to merely please others. I still think my suggestion as valid as before since the blogs I most follow is Art of Mob and Combo Apps. So if you omitted Geri’s blog, I’d do the same… Since I love her blog. Can’t talk about other people though…

  • tracymg

    Good resources – from the comments below, I was not sued whether to leave suggestions. It might be worth the PR value for YOUR site here, to build the most current, comprehensive list of

  • tracymg

    Sorry – my total comment was that it might be worth PR value to create the most comprehensive list on the web. Add a few resources every week. Keep up the awesome contests and content!

  • Yeah, I did send them and they gave you a suggestion. Do you even do actual research before you write your posts ? I’ll tell you why, I got the information from an email of a guy who just posts pretty photos, the apps he lists and no details of how he edits the photo. Some of the sites aren’t that active, some of the sites aren’t helpful information and last it just sounded like a plug for your site. You shouldn’t even be in the list. If I was going to compile a list I wouldn’t say “best in the world” when it’s a bias point of view. I would of put “iPhone Photo Sites to Check Out.” Then people wouldn’t have expectation and you’re not setting people up for disappointment. Take your sites out of the equation because people are looking for other sources and not yours for obvious reasons.

    By the way you need an education on technical terms and be comprehensive when you write critical reviews.

    That all I have to say and you know where to find me.

  • Wayman_Stairs

    ok so my original comment was deleted and I see that its because you believe that I was directed to so. Hoever this link popped up on my fb account so i thought I would check it out. i often utilize some sites listed here such as app whisperer and art of mob (and have been featured many times on these sites) but combo apps is abother favorite and I think very worthwhile and comprehensive site l, more so than some of the sites listed here. I also enjoy P1xels, for some awesome iphone art! Sorry you have something against tina and her awesome blog, not sure why!

    • I don’t approve her attention-seeking attempts to promote her blog and get more recognition, which is what this is ultimately all about.

    • Wayman_Stairs


      this is jot my intention though, just would like to see the best blogs/sites get their deserved attention.

  • Thanks for sharing all these great resources @iphoneps:disqus ! I’m honored to be included in this list of stellar folks 🙂

  • Hi, really glad to hear you’re getting back into creative photography with your iPhone! Social networks dedicated to photography are a great place to share your photos, get feedback from other photographers, and inspiration from seeing other people’s work. Instagram and EyeEm are a great place to start – you can download their apps from the App Store. You could also start entering our weekly photo contest too! 🙂

    • LeDuke Sf

      Thanks. I haven’t use Instagram nor EyeEm. I thought Instagram is kind of like Twitter, but for Facebook. Are their groups or sites where you have people who are truly interested in photography and enjoy the creative aspects of photography and editing? I would love to receive candid feedback on my photos, not just receiving ‘like’ clicks I sometimes get from friends.

    • Maybe try Flickr. You can access it via their website ( and they also have an app.

  • Joe

    Been thinking about teaching iPhoneography classes. I’ve had lots of people ask me to show them how to take better shots. Wondering how I should get started… My IG @ whateveryouare

  • Thanks, Jack. It is now

  • AnonymityBreedsContempt

    It looks like the first link is dead, dead DEAD.

  • Thank you for an information about the best iPhoneography resources and websites.
