Full-featured and free! The Aviary app for Android devices performs like a paid app, offering all the bells and whistles like auto enhance, multiple cropping settings, red eye removal, teeth whitening, settings for color and tone control and much more.

But Aviary knows you want to have fun, too. It is a mobile app after all, not some stodgy desktop program. So Aviary also included the goofy features like stickers (fully manipulable), text, filters and such that mobile users seem to love.

I like the meme feature, which allows me to show the interwebs how cute my cats are while expressing their desire for cheezburgers.

I’ve only found a couple of things it won’t do: renaming and resizing. You can rename in the gallery app, but it would be nice not to have to leave Aviary to do it. Resizing I mostly do for blogging, and the WordPress app will resize it for me. But these are pretty easy things to do that most other image apps offer. I was surprised a more advanced app like Aviary didn’t include them. Two minor faults are easy to live with for so many great free features, though.

In short, I love this app. It does everything I want it to without forcing me to join since pseudo social imaging network or spamming my phone with ads. Having used it for a couple months, I’d gladly pay for it if I had to. it’s a good bet that the Aviary app will remain free, though, since Aviary’s online image editor is also free and has been for years.
