Android App Review: Adobe Photoshop Express

Written on March 20, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

Adobe Photoshop Express has all the intuitive and aesthetic photo-editing needs of an average Joe. But if you're looking for a more hardcore photo-editing tool, then you should've used a PC/Mac in the first place.

The Android Market provides tons of free photo-editing apps that allow users to spice up their images in their own unique way. But with the deluge of photo-editing apps available, it’s a little impractical to download and try them all out.

Usually when we look into an app, we often (but not all the time) look at the name first, and then the reviews. We’re quite a sucker for free branded apps and download them immediately upon sight. Not all the times we get satisfied of what we got, but there are times also when these branded apps deliver the right amount of good stuff for our aesthetic needs; one of these is the Adobe Photoshop Express.

Google Walking Navigation and Street View for Android

Going places? Use the new Google Walking Navigation and Street View to get there fast and easy.

We are starting to think that the men behind Google are making it a habit to announce new upgrades every month. They’re rolling new things and today’s upgrade involves Android. From this day, Android phones with 1.6 and up versions will have an added attraction for you to enjoy.

This new feature is called Walking Navigation Beta and Street View. The first one is tagged into Google Maps for mobile 4.5, giving pedestrians a more invigorating routing option when using their feet to travel from one place to another. It’s still running on beta but the snitch is the “vibrate to turn” alert and the map’s capability to rotate with you.

Street View navigation is handing us the same stuff that we see on desktop browsers. But the obvious difference is that this time it is made for your phones. The new Google Maps will make it easier to find the places that you need to locate. If you need extra visual stimuli while the downloads are on progress hit play.
