f you’re looking for Photoshop-like photo editor app, then Snapseed is the app to download. Though it doesn’t have all of Photoshop’s features and functionalities, most of its controls and process of editing are closely alike. Snapseed is one of the widely used free photo editing apps.
Its main features are:
- Snapseed’s primary purpose is to edit images, although it does support capturing images on iOS smartphones.
- Snapseed may have a camera restriction, but in editing, it’s packed with features. It has 29 filters and tools to tune images, face poses, glamour glow and double exposure.

2. Halide Camera
Halide is an award-winning camera app listed in Macworld’s “Must-Have Apps,” The Verge’s “Apps We Love,” and picked by The Sweet Setup as “Best Third-Party Camera App for iPhone.” Daring Fireball says, “This sort of maniacal attention to the smallest of details deserves to be celebrated.”
I’m a designer and DSLR photographer, so the camera features on my phone is a big deal to me. When I upgraded from a 6, I was torn between the XS and XR. I’d been gravitating toward the XR due to the colors, battery life, price, and better lowlight photos, but was devastated it only had portrait mode for people.
I heard about Halide finding a solution to this problem, so I went with the XR and bought this app. I took a photo of my dog and I’m in love with its ability to pretty accurately map out data for bokeh shots.
My photo went straight to the default apple photos app, and reads it as a portrait photo now so I can adjust the blur like I can on people portraits. The only setback is not seeing bokeh in live mode, but it’s no biggie and who knows what exciting features future updates will bring.
Snapseed is a complete and professional photo editor developed by Google.
I have used Snapseed for a number of years on that other ‘fruity’ platform and now on Android, I am not disappointed. No, it doesn’t support Raw, it doesn’t do layers, its healing capability is somewhat limited. But, for me, it’s the best on the go editing app available and allows me to easily.

If you plan on shooting photos for printing, Hydra is a must have app. It captures a series of images, then automatically stitches them together. While this process requires a few seconds more to snap a photo, it allows for detail-rich pictures of up to 32-megapixels.
5. Magic Hour
Magic Hour (also called golden hour) is the time of day around sunrise and sunset when the light is great for photography and cinematography. It is typically when the sun is between 6 degrees below the horizon to 6 degrees above. This sunlight is evenly dispersed and helps you create great pictures.
Magic Hour 1.6 makes it easy for you to know when magic hour is coming and how much time you have left once it begins. The app takes your location along with the current day and calculates when magic hour will occur. If the weather forecast is available we give that to you as well.
All photographers know about the “golden hour” when the sun is just rising or setting, and the light outside takes on a soft, reddish hue that is unique to these specific time points. This soft light is ideal for photography, and knowing when to hit that time just right can help you snap the perfect photo. Magic Hour focuses on all the information that you need for understanding when the golden hour arrives based on your location, if the weather will be clear enough, and the approximate times of sunrise and sunset for your area.

Enlight is an all-in-one photo editing app with a great range of creative and artistic tools. Whether you want to perform a simple edit or create an artistic masterpiece, you can do it all with Enlight.
Artistic tools let you turn a photo into a sketch or drawing. You can personalize your photos using brushes, design elements, text, borders, and frames. And you can arrange your photos into a collage.
If you’re a committed photographer, you probably use a powerful tool such as Adobe’s Lightroom or Photoshop to work with your pictures. But not everyone needs apps like this, which have steep learning curves, and not everyone shoots enough photos to spend the time and money for this type of tool.
Most people who take pictures just want to do some simple editing, and you can use Apple’s Photos app on both macOS and iOS. But between those two alternatives, the $4 Enlight is a powerful editing tool for iOS that anyone can use. Its tap-and-drag interface gives you access to a number of filters, presets, and tools, and you don’t need to spend a lot of time learning how it works.
8. Dark Skies
Night time photography consistantly produces some of the most stunning photographs on the planet. Dark Skies is here to help you optimize those photographs. The longer you expose a digital camera sensor to light the more photons it is able to detect, thus the longer you can expose your cameras sensor to the night sky, the more stars you will see in the pictures.
There is a catch though, because the earth is moving, if you expose the camera too long the stars will blur, when done intentionally this effect can be stunning, but sometimes that is not the desired result.
To use Dark Skies, simply select your Camera, and the focal legnth of your lense, and Dark Skies will use the 600 rule to calculate how long of an exposure you can have.
There are only three choices for the Canon camera; you have no real input as to what camera or ISO setting you are using; every 4-5 seconds, another ad pops up disrupting your use of the program, no matter how many times you decline a purchase for the same item.
Very annoying as an app. The developer doesn’t know the difference between the word add (a verb) and ad, short for an advertisement: this should be a red flag right here. Absolutely useless as a tool for the professional. Erased my copy: I already have a calculator.
New Yr on Android is different from anything else you’ve seen in weather forecasting: Scroll through a beautiful and animated sky to see how the weather changes hourly, and get all the need-to-know details at the same time.
