These days, everything is so fast paced that everyone is almost always on the go. Because of this, people always have this need to have everything at their fingertips. And what better way to have everything you need with you at all times than to have it all in one gadget (i.e. an android smartphone).
With this in mind, application developers all over the world come up with various tools that can help people—professionals and hobbyists alike—create designs or edit images while they are on the go. But if you are only starting, you might find yourself overwhelmed with all the options you can find on the Google Play Store.
To help you choose the best one for you, we narrowed your choices down to eight. Read the list below to know more about each of these apps and, hopefully, choose one that will best suit your needs.
Using Adobe Photoshop Sketch is much like carrying around a huge sketchpad and a bag full of pencils, markers, and coloring materials—only better. Using the tip of your fingers, you can create new images, enhance old ones, and even share your creations on Behance.
Draw, blend, color, and pretty much do whatever you want while you’re on the move with the Adobe Photoshop Sketch!
This app is a must for those who want to start a career as a social media influencer. Using Adobe Photoshop Express allows the user to polish their photographs immediately after taking them.
