5 PicsArt Photo Studio
Once you get to know PicsArt Photo Studio app a bit, you’ll be amazed it was a free download. This is that all-in-one kind of deal we were talking about. It turns your mobile device into a fun and intuitive editing suite, letting you manipulate pictures in ways that feel like Photoshop, Instagram, and even MS Paint have combined into one fine package. From simple cropping and the standard effects (think B&W or solarize) to drawing on images (think mustaches, of course) to more in depth editing, like working with color saturation, light manipulation, etc. this app lets you work with your photos on a level that you would have happily paid a few bucks for.
InstaPicFrame for Instagram. You know you’re going to use Instagram all the time, so you might as well have the app that makes it the easiest to synch with the ever-popular site. You can quickly upload images in a variety of templates to Instagram as to Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Oh, and it’s a free app, so there’s that, too.
3 Fast Burst Camera
Bam! Fast Burst Camera! In the time it took to say that aloud, you could have taken 30 pictures with this awesome app (assuming it took you 1 second to say “Bam, fast burst camera”). A great app for fun, but also for study, it lets your device capture all those frames with great clarity, letting you examine a moment in more detail than you would have thought possible. For sports or for science projects and everything in between, if you want to isolate the details of a transient moment in time, this app will let you do it. And the pictures just look awesome, too, which is merit in and of itself.
2 Paper Camera
Paper Camera is one of the most fun apps we have played around with. You can practically turn your world into a comic book or abstract art at the click of a few buttons (or taps on the screen, as the case may be). The app lets you take your pictures and immediately convert them into images that look like pencil sketches, oil or pastel paintings, etc. It sort of reminds us of the cult classic film Waking Life which, if you haven’t seen, go see and then get this app. Life will imitate art!
1 Camera ZOOM FX Android
Those of you who are paying close attention may accuse us of picking the low-hanging fruit, as indeed we put this app in the #1 spot of our Best Paid apps list… but it’s just a great bit of software! The Camera ZOOM FX Android app has been bought by a million+ people because it is a great app. To quote Lifehacker: "The Best Camera App for Android." Zoom FX gives you myriad effects, filters, and shooting modes, all of them practical and amusing. It takes your mobile device’s camera a step closer to acting like a “real” camera, and it also makes linking/uploading photos to social media, the greater web, and email a snap, so it better integrates your device with the wider world. A great app.
