Snapseed for Android

The Good With its unique gesture-based interface, Snapseed offers an incredible level of control over its effects and filters.

The Bad The tools and interface aren't intuitive, so it could take a while to get familiarized.

The Bottom Line If you're a more serious mobile photographer looking for an app to fine-tune your photos with, Snapseed is your best choice.
