AH Awards 2014: Best Android Photography App of the Year



It's about that time of year again. Time for the Android Headlines Awards. We've got all kinds of awards for app categories, games, hardware and more and you'll be seeing them between now and the end of the year. So let's get started with the best Photography app of the year. This year we focused more on cameras and their software more then we ever have, and that's probably due to the hardware in these phones starting to plateau. There are plenty of great photography apps out there, so let's see who won, who came in second place and who earned an honorable mention this year.Screenshot 2014-12-02 12.43.52


Winner – Photo Editor by Aviary

If you like apps like Snapseed, then Photo Editor by Aviary is one you should check out. It does a ton of great things like having filters, one-tap auto enhance, gorgeous photo effects and frames, fun stickers, color balance, crop, rotate, straighten your photo, adjust brightness, contrast, color temperature, and saturation, as well as adjust the color temperature and focus. While the UI isn't quite material or holo, it's still got a nice, unique interface going on which tells you exactly where everything is. That's always important in apps like this which have a ton of options for you to use.

So why did we pick Photo Editor by Aviary as our winner this year? Well there weren't a whole lot of apps that came out in the past year that would fit the Photography area, so that slimmed down our picks quite a bit. But with the slew of features that Photo Editor by Aviary possesses as well as the UI that it uses, it was basically a no brainer.

Runner Up – Facetune

Facetune isn't your typical photography app here. What it does is it allows you to go ahead and edit your selfie photos. That's basically it's entire featureset there. Is to edit and enhance your portrait and selfie photos. You can swipe and get perfect skin, as well as touching up other parts of your selfie pictures. It can also fix up your hair and so much more. Facetune is available for $2.99 right now on the Google Play Store.
