LoFi Poll: How many photo apps do you currently have on your iPhone/iPod Touch?

A year ago, we asked the question “How many photography apps do you currently have on your iPhone?” in our first LoFi Poll.  I thought one year out, this would be a good opportunity to see how, if at all, the numbers have changed.

Click past the jump to help settle this burning question in this week’s LoFi Poll. >>>

Over the past year, we’ve seen the introduction of the iPhone 4, an end to AT&T exclusivity here in the U.S., and the introduction of hundreds of new photo apps as well as some killer updates of classic ones. A lot of new iPhone owners have discovered iPhoneography. We want to know what you think.

How many photo apps do you currently have on your iPhone/iPod Touch?

This is a completely unscientific poll. I’m not even sure why the numbers break as they do, but it made sense last year when we first did the poll. You’ll only be able to vote once, but you can see all of the results here.

I’ll compare this year’s numbers with 2010’s in a recap post next week.

    Heh, I had to check – 15 photo folders and 178 photo apps… still I have quite a few on my wantlist. Crazy.

    Crazy indeed. I am often buying apps (esp photo apps) for the sake of buying apps.

  • Cyril

    Wow! And I thought my 80 photo apps were a lot. That’s amazing! :)

    Uh oh. I started counting them in order to answer this poll………. and now I know I'm completely addicted. But in comparison to you guys I'm a noob: only 43 apps !

    Currently 125, but many I've downloaded then eventually deleted because I either never used them or they just sucked….. But still I probably only regularly use about 8-10 of the 125…. LOL….

    I just thinned the heard a bit and have the following remaining on my iPhone:

    Camera, Hipstamatic, 8mm, Camera+, PictureShow, Cameramatic, Pudding Camera, ClassicToy, qbro, Plastic Bullet, SlowShutter, (some photo editting app with no English in it so I don't know what it's called – but it has a red/pink icon with a character in a circle), Vignettr, Photosynth, ExifWizard, iMovie, Labelbox, FAIL Maker, Instagram, Path, Artify, aniQuoma, ColorSplash, HalfTone, ToonPAINT, Grungetastic, newsflash, PS Express, Instant Sketch, AutoStitch

    From the list above, and seeing I'm on the low-end of the App-quantity scale here, what would anyone else here recommend I try next?

    92 and going on….not all of them are my favorite and I delete alot when not satisfied

  • MrMayface

    I thought I had a problem, but I see from the responses here I don't. I have 56.

    I have a great question for a future poll. It’s a two parter:

    #1: How many photography apps do you use at least once a month?
    #2: How many photography apps do you have on your iPhone or iPod Touch that you DON’T use?

    I clicked the “more than 35” answer to the current poll because, after a quick check, I stopped counting at 35. I find it hard to delete them because I think “ooh, this is neat! I’ll definitely use it!” …but if I woke tomorrow and 25 of them were gone, I wouldn’t miss them.

    Many more since the Photojojo article last week (http://content.photojojo.com/websites/what-iphonography-apps-are-hot-right-now/). I was already using many of them, but Everyday, Slit-Scan and SynthCam were all new to me.

  • Tomba

    I bought 100+ for sure. Must be a junky. But i deleted a lot time after time.

    Actually i have only 72 Photo Apps on my phone 😀

  • Jill Gaupin

    I have 18 but use only 4 of them regularly. The way I purchase is I look at reviews (here!) and if there is overlap with any of my favorites, I don't purchase. I will download "freebies", though, regardless. Why not try them out if I can get them free, right?

    125? 178? 183?

    Egad – I've got 45 and am swamped trying to remember what they all do!

  • my_ipics

    107, but I don´t use more than 20 of them. Still I won´t delete one of them. There comes the day where I´ll need exactly this little app 😉

    Wow. And I thought I had a lot of photo apps. I thought I was in in the 13-18 so I went back to count and I have 48! Think it might be time to edit through the ones I never use.

    I don't tend to use all the photo apps I have despite having over 70. I use some maybe once or twice but some all the time. I love Hipstamatic but use Instagram the most. I process with Photoshop Express quite a bit now, then run through Instagram. I expect the most used app is Spy & Capture because it's excellent for catching candid shots of people out and about.

    Wow I've got over 30 on itunes, I had no idea! Though most have been deleted from my phone, use regularly Instagram, Lumiere, Photoshop Express, Plastic Bullet and Camera+

    After scrolling through the comments, maybe you need to add some categories – 50, 75, and 100+
