Editors' review

PicsArt lives up to its reputation of being the most popular photo editing app for Android and one of the best-rated apps on Google Play, having all the features you could wish from a mobile editing app, as well as a gorgeous and intuitive interface, plenty of additional downloadable content, and a vibrant social network for photo artists.

Pros

Powerful yet easy to use: Although in terms of features PicsArt can be compared to a computer image editing suite, including not only Photoshop-grade editing tools but also a drawing mode, a collage maker, and even an enhanced camera for snapping photos with custom effects, it somehow manages to fit hundreds of tools and options into a streamlined UI that moves smoothly and can be used with ease even by beginners.

DrawCam mode: A unique feature to this app, the Drawcam mode kindles your creativity by letting you draw, add layers, and edit your photos in real-time, enhancing them even before you snap the shot, so that you won't have to edit them later. This mode is fantastic in that it can help you discover a unique style of photography that will set you apart from others while making basic editing almost unnecessary.

Engaging social network: PicsArt connects you to a vibrant community of millions of artists from around the world, letting you explore many wonderful galleries created by other photographers, illustrators, and graphic designers whose work you can "like" and with whom you can interact through comments.

Cons

Nagging notifications: Unless you go to Settings and customize or disable notifications, the app bombards you with the most trivial notifications, like when one of the people you follow follows someone else.

Ad placement: Although not obnoxious, the banner that appears at all times during editing is placed just under the toolbar, which means that sooner or later you'll inadvertently tap on it.

Bottom Line

In creative hands, PicsArt can be an inspiring app, one that through its multitude of easy-to-use features can really unleash your passion for photography and drawing, helping you to create engaging artwork that people will love. At the same time, it can also be used for less artistic and more practical purposes, like media content for Facebook or your other social profiles and blogs, short presentations, and even YouTube slideshows. Whether you're a pro or a beginner, you must try this outstanding app.
