Camera Ace – Picture Slide Show
While this one features all of your typical filters, effects, and editing tools, we really like the up-front organizational stuff. Going to take a picture of your food, or landscape? You’ll have a handful of preset options to choose from to get the perfect effect. The same goes for selfies and pictures of other people. When you’re done, have physical pictures printed and pick them up at your local Target store.

Travel the world as one five characters, all with unique and powerful skills. You’ll be competing in missions and taking on your friends in a battle for the biggest fortune.
