I am unable to recall when was the last time I picked up my Canon point and Shoot to snap myself. As mobile phones continue to evolve digital cameras might get redundant for common consumers.

The UI is elegantly designed so that even a kid can easily tinker with it to create an attractive image. For lazy and immature editors, Snapseed also adds a number of filters that can be applied with a single tap. Personally I a big fan of tilt-shift feature which blurs the de-selected area.
Photo Editor by Aviary is available on all three platforms iOS, Android, and Windows. The app has gained popularity by banking upon astonishing editing effects that are on the app. Its user interface lacks the vibrancy of Snapseed, but it is quite easy to figure out how to operate it.
