Kindle Fire Free App of the Day: XnRetro Pro and bonus app: Picasso - Draw! Paint! Doodle!

Today's Free App of the Day is XnRetro Pro
Originally $1.99

This is a basic photo editing app. It's actually very nice and easy to use for what it does. It lets you select from photos already on your device or take a picture if your device has a camera.

You can crop photos with a variety of presets or a user defined crop. You can adjust brightness, contrast and intensity of color. There are also a lot of presets to do that. You can set vignetting, add lighting effects and a frame. One review complains about the inability to add text, which is correct, and probably the only flaw. I agree that text would be good, but it's also a very easy app to use and perhaps, if you don't already have an app like this that you're comfortable with, a good addition (and perhaps text will be added in a future upgrade). Usable in airplane mode.  Best in landscape mode.

 Even though the above app is a nice addition to your library, I thought I'd add one of my favorite photo apps...

6 of 10 reviews are four stars and above.

So we have a bonus pick: Picasso - Draw! Paint! Doodle!.

This is one of my favorites of the photo apps I've collected. It's also fun for kids to use to decorate their photos.

These apps are compatible with the original Fire and with my Fire HD 8.9" 4G. To tell if an app works for your Fire HD or other Android device registered to your Amazon account, click on the above link and look on the right side of the web page.  Amazon will tell you if it will work with your registered device.

Have fun!
