The Photo Guide app is basically a book offering a large amount of information about varying photography topics which can be viewed on the move on your iOS device. We have reviewed both previous versions of the app, it is now on version three. It is available from the iTunes Store for just £2.99.

The Photo Guide iOS App Performance

When viewing the tips and tricks the information is displayed in a clear and easy to read style with interactive images and graphics. In the original app the English wasn't so good, but has been much improved, it is now also available in German. The quiz sections has a range of questions which will test photographers of all abilities and knowledge, with live statistics available to help monitor your progress. It is worth noting that the total download is 250Mb, much larger than most iOS apps, but it therefore doesn't rely on you having an internet connection to read it.

The Photo Guide iOS App Verdict

Calling this an app is a bit misleading as it pretty much just a book for your iOS device. But having had a look through there is a vast amount of useful information available about all types of photography, whether you have a DSLR or a camera phone. It's very unlikely you'll find a similar book at the low price of £2.99, plus you don't have the weight to carry around. If your iPhone has got you into photography, the Photo Guide App is an ideal way to further expand your knowledge. It keeps improving from version to version and is therefore an app we are happy to recommend.

 
  The Photo Guide iOS App is packed with information and keeps improving with each version.
