With more than 600 effects onboard, Pixlr Express is one of the most powerful Android apps in its category. And that's no surprise, considering it's developed by Autodesk, makers of the design and engineering staple AutoCAD.

If you're looking for a quick fix for flawed photos, then Pixlr's Auto Fix tool should do the trick. With a single tap, it can make colors more vibrant, compensate for exposure problems, adjust contrast levels, and more. Focal Blur is another great tool that's like Instagram's tilt-shift, but with more control. And the list of features goes on and on. To truly understand this app's capabilities, you'll just have to give it a try.
