Handy Photo review

With its redesigned UI, precise controls, and outstanding smart features, the new version of Handy Photo proves to be without a doubt one of the best photo editors for Android. The small investment that this paid app requires is more than worth it if you're after an editor that lets you retouch, alter, and apply filters to images with ease through an intuitive interface.

Pros

Outstanding smart features: Handy Photo's intelligent Magic Uncrop feature for expanding photos and straightening crooked horizons works wonderfully with most images. These are features no other similar Android image editor we know of … Read more

InstaPhoto Fest review

InstaPhoto Fest lets you add festive overlays to images, creating greetings for birthdays and other special occasions. The app's options are somewhat limited in the free version, though, and there's not much here that you couldn't find elsewhere.

Pros

Quality graphics: InstaPhoto Fest offers birthday and Valentine's themed overlays, and, on the whole, the graphics look good. They tend toward the cutesy, which may or may not be your cup of tea, but they are at least decently designed.

Cons

Limited content: When we downloaded InstaPhoto Fest, it featured two sets of overlays under the February … Read more

QR Photo DVD Slideshow review

QR Photo DVD Slideshow helps you create slideshows out of your photos that include fun effects and music, and then burn them to a DVD. Sort through your photos to choose the best ones, and then add the finishing touches to a slideshow to preserve and share the memory of the event.

The first time you open QR Photo DVD Slideshow, some tips pop up to help you make the most of the app. These tips aren't terribly helpful, though, and neither is the actual Help file, as it mostly lists features and doesn't actually tell you how … Read more
