A list of the best photo editing apps for iOS and Android

Prisma Photo Editor

Prisma is a great editing app that turns your photos into paintings. Unlike those filters or apps that made our pictures look kike drawings or something close to paintings, Prisma is the real deal. There is no doubt that Prisma does a wonderful job with its unique filters that transform photos into works of art as if Picasso, Munch or even Salvador Dali himself did it according to reviews.


You could enjoy a generous amount of free filters, though we would suggest that you try the premium edition. Prisma also happens to have a network of its own, such as Instagram/Facebook, so well, your talents won’t go unnoticed. You can download it from the links below.

Snapseed is a Google-owned and built photo editor. And if we know anything about Google, it’s the best one when it comes to images. There is no question that Google has the benefit of having a wide user base over anyone else on this ranking, which obviously pays off for Google in the end.


Snapseed comes with all the basic resources required for photo editing, such as cropping, vignettes, straightening, frames, text, etc. The software also provides adjustable filters, and is a nice complement to that. Driven by Google’s AI, Snapseed does a fine job of making your pictures look stunning. Snapseed is free and available on both iPhone and Android smartphones.

On the other hand, this one is intended for minor detail. We don’t think there’s something wrong with black circles, bags under the eyes, or those little imperfections.
