Ever since the smartphone revolution and the introduction of high quality cameras on mobile phones, people have been snapping pictures of just about everything, every day! My favorite portable camera is quickly becoming the iPhone 4. It is the one camera I always carry with me. I have compiled a list of three awesome photo sharing apps that I use on a daily basis.

Camera+

If you love taking pictures you must download this app now. By far it is the best photo app on the market! The sheer number of features available is incredible. With Camera+ you’re able to use your iPhone to shoot the best photos you possibly can. Packed with several useful features that your standard camera app doesn’t include, your pics will improve the instant you start using Camera+. The built-in stabilizer is icing on the cake. Its tight integration with Facebook, Twitter and Flickr allows your photos to be seen across the web by millions of photo enthusiasts.

Instagram

With 150 million photo uploads in 9 months (as reported by Engadget), Instagram’s numbers speak volumes.  It’s a fast (and fast growing), beautiful and fun way to share your life with friends through a series of pictures.

Snap a photo with your iPhone, choose a filter to transform the look and feel, send to Facebook, Twitter or Flickr – it’s all as easy as pie. It’s photo sharing, reinvented. Download link.

Google+

I know Google took the world by storm with the release of its social network site Google+, but the hidden gem is the photo sharing capabilities. I love Facebook, but lets face it, its photo rendering utilities suck! When I first received a Google+ invite and uploaded one of my images I simply said “wow”. Images are displayed how they are suppose to look when you want to share them with the world. The app is available on both iOS and Android, making it the photo sharing app of choice among photographers.

Sharing Instagram photos on Google+ automatically

Instagram (free) is a lot of fun, although it’s often criticized as being the “auto-tune for photography.” Google+ is the new social networking flavor of the week, so it’s natural that the two services should get together. Wired’s Gadget Lab has cooked up a recipe for more Instagram enjoyment by hacking a method of joining the two in unholy matrimony, as well as providing other fun hints.

Before I divulge their other hints, let’s get to the meat of the matter for those of you who are among the Google+ cognoscenti: getting your Instagrams to Google’s Picasa photo sharing site so they can be shared on Google+. Yeah, hopefully this is added to Instagram in the near future. For the present, this is how you do it, folks.

To have all of your future Instagram photos sent immediately to Google+, blogger Charlie Sorrel has you set up Instadrop, which automagically connects your Instagram and Dropbox accounts. Send a photo out on Instagram, and it shows up in a Dropbox folder named Instagram Photos. Next, pick up a copy of the free Picasa app for Mac. From the File menu, select “Add Folder to Picasa” and point it at your new Instagram Photos folder on Dropbox.
