When it comes to good natural lighting, you can’t beat the time of day known as “golden hour” (or “magic hour”). This iOS app can tell when golden hour is every day no matter where you are, and lets you set reminders so you never miss the perfect shot.
If you’re an Instagram junkie, love following photographers, exploring hashtags and photos in your area, or just have lots of friends or followers on the service, Photoflow for Mac might be worth its price tag for you. You get most the features of the mobile apps or web site, and some additional ones you may not be expecting.
Android: Gallery apps are typically a dime a dozen. There are only so many ways to display a bunch of pictures, right? Focus manages to actually give other apps a run for its money. It offers tag-based organisation, intuitive sorting, and even a built-in snoop protection feature.
iOS: If you have a load of photos on your phone and in different cloud storage services, YoVivo wants to give you a place to streamline, organise and share them all easily. The app connects to all of your storage lockers and lets you share any photo with any network, build slideshows, and share those too, for free.

Both offer identical, useful features: automatic photo backups, intelligent organisation, online editing tools and sharing capabilities. So which one should you use?
Think BitTorrent, and you probably think of, well, Game Of Thrones. Not so much photo sharing, but that’s what Bittorrent (the company) would much rather you think about.
Mac: Photos is now a pretty good photo organiser, but it’s not for everyone. If you don’t want it automatically launching every time you connect your iOS device or camera, you only need to uncheck one box.
