With a better camera in the Nexus One, Ron Richards embarks on a photo journey to find the right app for him by looking at Photoshop Mobile and Pic Say.
Taking photos with your camera can be fun, but as the phones get better and the cameras in them get better, like the 5 megapixels in the Nexus One, getting a photo editing app can become a must have. Adobe has ported their Photoshop Mobile app from the iPhone to Android, and you'd think that would be the go to app, but Pic Say (and Pic Say Pro) definitely give Photoshop a run for it's money. Which app is best?

Both applications deliver on their promise of making editing photos on your phone easy. While Photoshop didn't have as much power as one would hope, it's a good app to edit your photos. Pic Say has a bit more functionality than Photoshop, along with word balloons and clip art to make your photos more "fun." Depending on your needs, either as casual pic taker or a hardcore photographer, either app will get the job done for you.
