    Better late than never, it's time for Mobifolk everywhere to vote for their essential photo apps of the past year - except that this time it's a little different. For it's 5th anniversary MobiTog's Essential Apps becomes MobiTog's Recommended Apps - MRA for short.

    Rather than ask you to vote for apps you'd recommend to newbie mobile photographers this time we'd like you to vote for apps you'd recommended to anyone with an interest in smartphone photography. We think it'll give a better overall idea of which apps Mobimembers are using and like.

    Last year ProCamera 9, Snapseed, Stackables, Enlight, MobiTog, and iColorama were given the honour of MobiTog recognition. For over a year they have been representative of some of the best photo apps available – but are you still using them? Have you found newer and better apps? Name them and help to compile the new 2017 list.

    As before there will only be one round of voting (this one) and the top three apps in each category will make up the new list – so make your votes count.

    Please vote in the following categories:

    1. Alternative camera apps.
    2. Photo editing apps.
    3. Video camera apps.
    4. Video editing/effects apps.
    5. Filter/effects apps.
    6. Mono effect apps.

    7. Text overlay apps (any app that overlays text or designs onto your photos).
    8. Image transfer apps (for moving pics between devices and computers).
    9. Social/sharing apps (any app that helps share your images with a wider audience).
    10. Photo utility apps (any app that helps organise your images or augment your photography).

    11. Personal favourite apps of yours - any genre.

    Guidelines
    • You are free to vote for as many apps as you like but we suggest you try and keep it down to around half a dozen, tops.
    • Vote by replying to this thread.
    • Please bear in mind you are choosing apps that you would recommend to others. If you have a personal favourite vote for it in category 11.
    • Feel free to suggest alternate categories should you consider any apps or app types not represented. They may not be featured this year but will be considered for future polls.
    It’s all down to you, Mobifolk. Please vote by replying to this thread, which will remain open until the end of the month. After that we’ll compile the list of winners and announce them.

    Help fellow MobiTog members by sharing your recommendations of the best photo apps you can.

    Thank you.
