Top 10 ultimate photo apps for Nokia 808 PureView and Nokia N8
The Nokia 808 PureView has changed the way people use their camera phone for ever. Some could argue the Nokia N8 did just the same before it, as both are amazing examples of what can be achieved when innovation is high on the agenda. Here we look at the top 10 apps for your Nokia 808 PureView and Nokia N8.
The guys over at Nokia Conversations seem to be having a lot of fun with their Nokia 808 PureView of late and have put together what they think are the best 5 apps for the brand spanking new PureView camera that also happen to be fit for the older 12-Megapixel Nokia N8 too.
However, we’re always up for a challenge here at NokNok and thought we’d join in the fun with a few choice app choices of our own. First up, what the Convo boys had to say:
The Camera Lover Pack is an app created by imaging specialists, Scalado, a company from which Nokia has recently acquired technology and developers for future products. It offers up five different lens features, from PhotoRama to Multimatic but you’ll have to check out the app to find out what they do!
The world seems to have gone Instagram mad of late, trying for that Kodak insta-camera moment. MOLOME is a fully featured app that lets you apply fun effects to your photos before sharing them on your favourite social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Flickr, Weibo or even the cloud storage service, Dropbox.
Stoppola is a free app that lets you create beautiful stop-motion animations and time-lapse videos with your 808 PureView. You can cut and paste frame by frame and add an audio soundtrack either from an existing MP3 or by recording a new track with your 808 PureView.
Photorim takes adding effects to your photos to the extreme and justifiably prides itself on being simple to use.You view how your photo looks in each visual effect from the thumbnail gallery (and there are dozens to choose from) and you just select the one you like.
Thermal Camera is a good way of illustrating that just because the 808 PureView is a very serious camera phone, does not mean that it can’t be fun at the same time. It offers up two fun thermal ways of seeing the world.
OK, that’s where Nokia Conversations left it but we reckon we can add a further five apps for the Nokia 808 PureView and Nokia N8 to the mix giving you an even wider section to choose from:
This N8 photo app will let you easily stitch photos together to create panoramic shots within seconds. Once you snap a photo the previous photo appears as a faint overlay on the viewer to help you create the perfect shots.
Nokia Photo Browser
Nokia Photo Browser is an alternative way to view your photo albums on your Nokia N8, or any other compatible Nokia phone. Photos are laid out in tiles in landscape form to scroll through by touch. Tap on a photo to view it, then double tap to zoom in on areas on it and more.
CameraPro N8 offers up a multitude of extras for Nokia N8 snappers. Among the photo goodies are: 11x digital zoom, raw jpeg stream, effects, anti-shake, time lapse, burst mode and plenty more.

Pro Premium is one of the most highly-rated camera apps on the Nokia Store. It the ability to take HDR shots and effortlessly add special effects to photos to share with others by directly uploading them to Facebook.
Like ShutterPro Premium, CamEfx adds special effects and filters to photos, which include black and white, Lomo, sketch and night vision for no charge. So think of it as a cheaper alternative to ShutterPro Premium.
