    "I think Flickr is great for photo sharing. The photographers on Flickr are really top notch and it's not so like-centric like other photo apps. I post my work and receive feedback from the community."

    "I used to have to edit the photos I took with my iphone on my clunky desktop using Photoshop. The TouchRetouch app allows me to simply edit them on my iphone instead. It's not as feature rich but it does save a lot of hassle. "

    "This app was such a waste of a download. I even think my security was compromised. It's quite alarming because I think someone else has access to my private photos. I warn you not to download this app."

    "Tumblr is not exactly what I think about when I consider apps you'd use to share photos, and, perhaps, it is not the best way ttr directly share specific photos with a single party, like you'd do with a USB stick or something. It is, however, a good way to share photos with a more general audience. If, for example, you are trying to get exposure for your photography, it can be very good for that. People often scroll through many, many photos at once, so if you make something that really stands out, it can get a lot of attention."

    "AfterFocus is okay, but I wish it had a sharing feature. As it is, this is mostly for changing the focus of your pictures after-the-fact. Good for people who don't know how to take a picture, pretty pointless for the rest of us."

    "What's nice about eyeem is that you retain the rights to your photos, which is really rare nowadays. I really like using the editing portion of the software. I don't try to sell anything but it seems like people have some success doing that. The userbase isn't very big though, but I like the app. "

    "I've been a user for several months, and I've enjoyed this app quite a bit. I've found it to be a good way to preserve my favorite posts for future reference. However, the heavy ad content and new changes to the app have reduced my recent usage, but I still think that the app is pretty useful. I'm hoping some of the bugs from the recent update get fixed so I can use it like I did when I first downloaded it."
