    "Make your pics come to life"

    PhotoViva could be the last of a myriad of photo editors that have landed on Android Market over the past months. In fact, it's a luck that it's the last indeed, because it has learnt a lot from its predecessors. Let's try to figure out why:

    An extremely easy interface. There just a few buttons shown at once, included the almighty undo and redo buttons who soon will become your best friends. Have in mind that you always work on a copy of the original pic and you can save multiple times the edited one, so try to be creative beyond giving your pics that so-in-vogue Instagram-like look, because there's where the true nature of this app relies: a wide array of brushes and a clone pad can make little creative miracles on the go. In addition, some features we may be used to have been improved in a subtle way; have HDR as an example, which has been added a slidebar to avoid that HDR-like look all HDR pics look like. Everything, absolutely everything has real time preliminary previews. This means that it's time for you to play, play, play and have fun, fun, fun.

    There aren't sharing options per se, but edited pics are saved in a different folder, from where they can be shared via your own user interface. It works with HD images as long as your device is able to deal with them. We would ask for even more editing options, though it may be too much asking and perhaps it would play against the easy-to-use nature of the app.

    As any well-to-do app, there aren't either ads or annoying plug ins or whatsoever. You get a complete app because you paid a complete app. If you are into taking pics and you don't want to arrive home to edit them; if you want just one and only app to edit images and don't want to rack your brains with complex interfaces, here's PhotoViva. And I like that we have found something useful in a category where I didn't expect anything valuable to be found, at least in the near future.

    Lastly, don't forget to check this awesome step by step online guide (here) and, even though it's quite unfair, to test the "autopaint" feature.
