From the outset, a smartphone photo manipulation app is a fantastic idea. Thanks to the turtleneck mafia, awful-and-noisy-built-in-camera photography has become something far bigger than most of us expected — who could’ve predicted that the iPhone would become the most popular camera on Flickr in under two years? But now, ladies and gentlemen, it ‘s the turn of the Android. With dozens of new Android handsets emerging every month, and with the Android market share creeping ahead of the iPhone, it’s now time to talk about Android photography.
There’s a bit of a problem, though: most photo manipulation software for Android phones smells worse than a Titan’s loincloth. Mashable has a list of them, but they’re all plagued with inadequacies and bugs; some are slow and some simply don’t work on newer phones!
Enter Photoshop Express for Android. From Adobe you’d expect nothing short of a photo editing miracle app, but alas that isn’t the case. Photoshop Express is certainly useful – and it is a very polished, professional app that’s free of bugs — but I just wish it did a bit more. I wish it wasn’t so annoyingly devoid of obvious, easy-to-implement features.
