While I love the stock apps that come on most smartphones and tablets; often times, they don’t unlock the full potential of the device. For example, they give the user minimal control to color correct a photo or to crop out unwanted portions of a photo. As a result, photos often turn out lackluster when they should have turned out superb. Fortunately, there are a lot of great photo app alternatives that you can download from the Android Marketplace.
As a heavy smartphone and tablet user, I like to keep a number of different apps on my devices – this way I have choices when deciding what kinds of edits to make to a photo. To help you sort through the approximately 400,000 Android apps, I’ve selected 5 must have photo apps for Google Android smartphone and tablet owners.
