My Verdict:

Pict’Up is a nice and simple Photo Editor app. Though it offers a limited number of free effects, but its ability to adjust these effects widens the scope. However, the Share option on the app’s bar doesn’t seem to work. Still worth trying an app. Check this out to apply cool effects to your photos. Share your feedback via comments.
