Ok . . .

What's your favourite shooting and/or editing app and why?

The kids got a blast out of Lego Photo a few years ago. It does the obvious thing--takes a picture and makes it look like it was constructed of coloured lego pieces!

Other than that, I pretty much stick with Camera and Photos. I downloaded GorillaCam a couple years ago on a recommendation but I don't think I've ever used it. Also added "Field Tools", Bokeh and "Light Meter" thinking I would use them with my traditional camera...but never did.

I do use the Flickr mobile app, though.

I know the Lego Photo app. :) My daughter has that on her iPod Touch. It works pretty well. We had a lot of fun with that . . .

I'm not familiar with GorillaCam.

I downloaded a few light meters, but I got a couple light meters so . . . didn't really play with them that much . . .

I Flickr app I downloaded for my Android phone, but never took a picture with it. I ran out of memory on my phone so I deleted it . . .

Pixlr Express by Autodesk . . . 2 thumbs up! :)

I just tried Pixlr Express by Autodesk on my Android phone and it seems pretty good to edit pictures. (I see that there is an iOS version available.)

I was familiar with the on-line Pixlr editor. (Very cool! Nice and simple!)

And I remember playing around with Pixlr-o-matic on my Android phone, which was an easy way to add filters / effects.

But Pixlr Express seems to be really, really powerful. Adjustments include cropping, rotating, straightening, sharpening, auto fix, blur, etc. etc. etc.

Plus there are effects, overlays, borders, text, stamps.

Like a one-stop-shop for cleaning up a photo before posting, just using your phone / tablet.
