Snapping photos with a smartphone is now becoming popular and seen nearly everywhere you go as it's so convenient and pictures taken from the device can be saved in fairly good quality. Not only this, you can now also use a photo editor right away with your mobile device and do some touch-ups on your photos before sharing or keeping them.
One of the photo editors that is easy to use and gives you high quality results is Pixlr-o-matic, created by the same developer of Pixlr Editor. If you've not used it before, this is a good chance to give it a try.
Using this app, you don't need to have any photo editing knowledge or experience. Just take a picture with the app or select a photo from the library in your device, then pick a color filter, a lighting effect and a photo frame easily from a well designed slider, and you can see your editing result right away at any choice that you've just tapped.
When you're happy with the result, you can then save it back to your library, share it via social networks such as Facebook, or send it through email from the app.
Although there are as many as 25,000 possible finishes that you can create for any one image, the best I like is going for None with no change in color, and finished in Vignette lighting with a Cornered or Round frame for simplicity, but everyone's preference is different.
Other than for Android, this app also has a version for iOS, Windows, OSX or directly runs in your browser with the links accessible from its homepage.
