Review Fotor Photo Editor
One of the easiest to use photo editors on Android

The enhance features are easy to use but work great, the sliders are responsive, but not overly so, has a lot of useful camera features
The camera controls take up way too much real estate, the interface isn't quite as intuitive as i'd like for it to be
A while back I had lost total faith in photo editors on my phone. My M8 did pretty much anything I really wanted it to out of the box and some of the few editors I played around with were either unintuitive to use or just felt really cheap. Fotor for Android is one of the first photo editing apps that I’ve used that enabled me to enhance my photos is a good way and do so quickly.
The first cool thing about this app is the fact that it has its own built in camera app that actually adds features and functionality to your stock camera, especially if you’re using stock Android. This one comes packed with a burst mode and a feature that acts like OIS. It also focuses where I actually want it to, which is a feature surprisingly absent from other photo apps.
Enhancing a photo automatically or manually is incredibly easy. Opening a picture, there is just a straight enhance option with low, medium, and high settings. For most shots you’ve taken on your phone, these are great to use because they’ll quickly clean up the picture in exactly the way it seems like it needs to be.
If you’re someone who likes diving in yourself then other features are implemented in ways you’re familiar with. But what I like about this app is the subtle responsiveness of the sliders. I feel like I can accurately pinpoint exactly where I want to set the option rather than jump from one extreme to the other.
Fotor is easily going to be my newest photo app. I love how easy it is to use, and it doesn’t give my pictures that typical Instagram look that most photo filters do. These are usable filters and effects that can be tailored exactly how you want it.
