Pixlr Express

Pixlr Express is the best photo editing phone app I’ve come across to date. It has way more functionality than I could ever show examples for, so I’ll just show some screen captures to show how much functionality it has:


As you can see, in the adjustment submenu there are a ton of options:

  • Whiten (Teeth)
  • Touch Up
  • Focal Blur
  • Color Splash
  • Contrast
  • Blur
  • Sharpen
  • Denoise
  • Red Eye
  • Crop
  • Rotate
  • Auto Fix
  • Color
  • Vibrance




“Effects” are basically what every other app calls filters. What you can’t tell in this screen shot is that each of the options just opens up a bunch other options. At least 10 per option.




Once again, each of the overlay options is just a category of at least 10 more options. There are at least 10 different types of Fireworks overlays. Some of these overlays are pretty worthless, but it is nice have so many options.

Not pictures is the Borders menu. Once again, there are tons and tons of border options.



Once again, I wouldn’t have much use adding text to images, but it is nice that again there are a ton of different text options.




Stickers is a function I wouldn’t have any use for, but if it is the type of thing you are into, there are literally over a hundred different options.

In the end, you can come up with an image such as this:




This is a phone app that has more functionality than many desktop programs. Almost every function has options as well. All the filter effects can be faded, for example.
