We can't enough of taking photos with our phones and are psyched about all the nifty tools out there that allow us to display our mobile photography, like Screenstagram. If you're looking to feed your stream with new photos, here is a roundup of our favorite Android photo apps – and they're all free.

Retro Camera: Like the Android-version of Hipstamatic, Retro Camera is an old favorite that comes with five cameras (inspired by Lomo, Holga, Polaroid, Diana, the toy cameras and Hipstamatic) and five sets of filter effects. Make sure you check out the new addition, Hipsteroku - the Japanese hipster toy camera.

Action Snap: More of an action shooter? Action Snap captures multiple photos with one click. Not to disregard taking still photos, you also have the option to take just one if you'd like.

FxCamera: Fx Camera let's you play with many different effects, with our favorites being Fisheye, ToyCam and Polandroid - a good one for viewing your surroundings with different eyes.

Little Photo: More for photo editing and retouching photos you've already taken, Little Photo applies filters to your pictures with options like black & white film, Lomo film and a new feature that let's you combine four photos into one.

Roidizer: Perhaps our favorite of the bunch, Roidizer takes photos and turns them into Polaroid inspired images with the option to label each photo just like a physical Polaroid on the bottom.

Camera360: With all the bells and whistles the other photo apps have, Camera360 is also the best app for just taking regular photos with your Android. With an interface that makes it easy and quick to snap photos, it definitely beats taking shaky photos with your regular Android photo app.
