Review Aviary

Jay Feldman
9.0Excellent
Powerful functionality, lots of settings, modern design
Lags a bit
Photo Editor by Aviary for Android is a feature rich photo editing app. It’s very easy to use, yet still has a host of advanced features more experienced editors will appreciate.
Photo Editor by Aviary is one of the better photo editing apps I've personally tried. The interface is quite modern and chic and there are a lot of tweaks and improvements one could easily make, weather an advanced user or a beginner. Photos load directly from your device’s gallery and the renders are fast. Browsing through an exhaustive collection would be pleasant with this app. Just tap a picture to open and edit.
I love that the crop controls have several presets; 4:3, 16x9, etc. And each button has a double function to change the preset crop from portrait to landscape; or just freehand it with the easy touch and re-size tools. I also loved the filter controls for saturation, contrast, brightness, etc.; just touch the control you want to tweak, and a slide wheel appears below the picture. Just slide your finger to move the dial and enhance or reduce whatever effect you’re working on with ease. The image you’re enhancing shows a live preview of the adjustments, which render quickly.
If you want to add a little flair to your images, this app also features frames and sticker packs that can decorate and personalize your pics to your liking. Most of these packs need to be downloaded, but so far, most appeared to be free; though I imagine some may cost a fee so the developers can earn a little something.
Photo Editor by Aviary is an excellent photo editing app. It’s hard to put it on par with something like Photoshop, but then, not everyone can handle Photoshop. As it is, this app has a lot of powerful functionality and is laid out in an easy to follow interface that makes sense and isn't needlessly bogged down.
