Enough messing around with your phones built-in photo editor! The leader in digital photography software, Adobe Photoshop, has released a mobile app that incorporates a huge array of the features of the full desktop version. Why just add a simple filter to your mobile photos, when you can use layers and effects to create something truly different?Source

Owned and created by Twitter Inc., the app allows anyone to stream live video directly from their phone. People who follow you will get a notification when you go live, and you can even save your streams upon completion, so that people may go back later and watch.Source
3 - Angry Birds Fight!

4 - Kamcord
With game-streaming series becoming more and more popular through video sharing sites, like YouTube and Twitch, there is a huge market for game oriented video content. Most of the content until now, however, has featured gameplay from only PC and console games, as recording devices for those forms of media have been around for several years. Kamcord is an app that allows you to record live mobile gameplay directly onto your phone or tablet. You can also capture voice-over from your phones built in mic, allow players to commentate their own gameplay, adding a personal touch to the game recording. If that weren't amazing enough, Kamcord allows for upload to YouTube directly from the Kamcord app, so you will be sharing your best gaming moments with your friends in minutes!Source
5 - AlphaBetty Saga
AlphaBetty Saga (designed by the makers of Candy Crush Saga) is an addictive, letter-linking word game that follows the story of a mouse professor and her friends as they attempt to complete the 'Encyclopedia of Everything'. You can collect new characters and unlock new features along your journey, as well!Source
6 - Brickies
A beautiful and original take on the classic 'brick breaker' style arcade game, Brickies, combines fine-tuned game physics with highly appealing art, to make a fresh twist on an old game.Source
7 - Microsoft Office
In a revolutionary advance in mobile office capabilities, Microsoft has launched it's full Office suite for mobile use. And no, I'm not talking about an app that lets you simply view Powerpoint slideshows and Excel documents. This full-featured app allows you to actually create all of the same projects and documents that you might in your work office, except in the palm of your hand. Imagine creating an Monthly Expenses Sheet in Microsoft Excel while on a picnic in the park; or writing your five-page class paper in Microsoft Word while laying on the beach with your friends; or putting the finishing touches to your business proposal in Microsoft Powerpoint while sitting in the subway on your way to the proposal! Now you can begin to see the drastic change this could make in the way we think about, and do, our work.Source
8 - Nihilumbra
An immaculately beautiful sidescroller game, Nihilumbra follows a character who can use colors to gain abilities and advance through the game. The player has access to in-game painting options and can color the environment, itself, to change the way the game plays. One of the prettiest games I have seen in a while, Nihilumbra is sure to be a hit with puzzle-solvers who like a little added visual appeal with their games.Source
