We all waste our days snapping our friends selfies with too many chins on SnapChat or using cheesy chat up lines on Tinder, but it’s time to get productive and download a few lifesaving apps.
For those of us who like to give their photo a bit of filter before uploading to Facebook or Instagram, this app is perfect for you. Unlike some of the many photo editing apps out there, Snapseed contains more than basic filters. The app has extensive options for changing the format of your photo along with a wide range of filters and adjustment settings.
