This is by far the best free photo editing app. It has all of the functions and robustness of Photoshop for Windows and GIMP 2.0 as well. The only drawback is the zoom window is sometime in the way when editing detailed areas in zoom mode. If your stylus accidentally touches that window while dragging, it suddenly moves the zoom box and repositions your zoomed work area to wherever that zoom box landed when you touched it. I don't see a way to fix it other than a toggle view for the box.

Great app, but some features are not intuitive at all. For example, if you try to insert text using one of the styles, there's a good chance you're going to have to either do it word by word or insert an empty new line to get it to format correctly. The heal feature is nice, but it will be much easier to insert a square or rectangle and then fill it in (for text emphasis or underlay, esp large areas) versus attempting to heal away enough area to get the same effect.

Excellent photo editor, has a full suite of useful tools, I use it often. No warp, and I have a drawing app that excels at that and is closer to photoshop in some ways, but Snapseed is best for straight-forward color correction, cropping, color balance correction, spot-healing, sharpening, and more. The text effects are quite nice, too, I just wish there were more fonts or ability to import fonts. Option to export in JPEG or PNG, with little to no loss in quality. This editor is a must! No ads.
