Polarr

Polarr is a comprehensive editing app with an interesting pricing mechanism. You can use the app for free but with some limited functionality or pay for the 'pro' version. The $20 for the full version though also gives you access to the desktop versions.

  • Create, customize, and share your own filters
  • Multiple local and brush adjustments

I like the design of Polarr. It offers a wide range of tools but the interface and icons are relatively intuitive and easy to master, especially with the built-in tutorials. It is a little slow to start though and occasionally temperamental, especially compared to Snapseed for example.

Best used for:

  • Curves adjustments
  • Brush and filter tools
  • Range of filters
