Camerabag: Turn Your iPhone into a Vintage Camera
There's something special about the artsy quality of a vintage photo. Toy cameras such as Holga, Lomo and Diana are my favorite, but I'm a sucker for just about any cheap camera with a "temperamental" streak. Get from a vintage look for your photos without having to carry around an extra camera. CameraBag from Nevecenter takes iPhone's built in camera back in time with 5 retro photo styles: "Helga," "1974," "Lolo," "Cinema," and "1962."

Cats, yes. LOL, well maybe not so much. The LOLCats app from MC Development brings up photos from flickr with the tag LOLCats. Unfortunately, as with anything that relies on folksonomy, your mileage may vary.
Exposure: A good free flickr viewer
A lot of us use flickr to store our photos online. Bought by yahoo in 2004, this service is the "gold standard" in online photo management, and is in some ways the poster child of web 2.0.
