Here, the SIMPLE Mobile team explores four of the best photo editing apps you can find.

Shooting a photo in a city environment

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC is popular thanks to a comprehensive, yet intuitive, selection of editing features. The application’s interface is as user-friendly as can be, so you can touch up your photos in a matter of moments without dealing with a steep learning curve. Need to step up your editing game? You can even pay for the monthly Photography Creative Cloud plan, which offers extra features and lets you save your photos to the cloud for effortless access from several devices. It’s available on Google Play and the App Store.


Developed by Google, Snapseed has earned universal acclaim – and for good reason. Much like Lightoom, it’s quick and easy to learn the ropes. The app lets users edit photos with 29 tools and filters, including basics, such as crop and rotate, as well as more specialized features, including HDR Scape and Face Enhance. The best part? It’s free, and you can find it on Google Play and the App Store.


You can connect with other VSCO users and view quality work curated by the VSCO community whenever you need a little inspiration.

VSCO is a longtime photog staple that pushes the boundaries of the photo editor by combining extensive editing features with a strong social community. The app features an integrated camera with forward-thinking controls, including subtly stylish presets, as well as a host of editing features for post-capture touchups. You can also connect with other VSCO users and view quality work curated by the VSCO community whenever you need a little inspiration. Download VSCO on Google Play or the App Store.
