3. FxCamera


£free from the Android Market

FxCamera is another great option for adding effects to your photos. The results range from a Polaroid-style effect to Fisheye and a nifty little ToyCam effect.

4. Adobe PhotoShop Express

£free from the Android Market

From the folks who brought you Photoshop, here comes PhotoShop Express, a mobile-friendly version of the full-fat photo editing package which gives you the ability to crop, rotate and apply effects to images. It’s a great tool for making quick changes but not as powerful as some alternatives.

5. Snap Photo Pro

The final of our four favourite Android photo apps, Snap Photo Pro packs has some handy features not found in the others including a timer, burst mode, brightness and contrast adjustment and a range of different zoom features. This app is a great one for super-charging the camera that comes with your Android phone.
