As a hobby photographer who’s spent the last 10+ years using Photoshop and Lightroom on computers, finding a mobile photo editing app that meets my standards was a challenge. Not counting Adobe’s robust mobile apps, I’ve so far found nothing better than Snapseed.

While not as feature heavy as a full-blown desktop photo editing software, Snapseed boasts more of the sort of basic fine-tuning options like contrast, saturation, sharpness, etc. without being weighed down by too many cutesy clichés like bubbly text and stickers.

What I love about the app is that it supplies me with the most critical editing options I need, especially the coveted highlight and shadow adjustments that help to make up for limitations of mobile cameras. Your edits can be as detailed or simple as you want.

As for as ui, Snapped tries to keep it simple with basic swiping left and right for adjustments, and up and down to choose options. It takes some getting used to but quickly becomes second nature after a few goes, getting you to your desired look quickly and easily.
