Best Six Creativity Apps for Android Tablets

With newer tablets like the Pixel tablet and the recently announced Samsung Tab S9 series, Android continues to work with developers to adapt their creative apps for larger screens.

Google in a blog highlighted six apps that users can try on their Android tablet to get the most out of their next creative project: LumaFusion, Concepts, Google Photos, Sketchbook, Adobe Lightroom, and Canva.

1. LumaFusion

LumaFusion, one of the most popular video editing apps, is now available on Android tablets. The company brought in a team of experienced Android developers to help ensure that the Android version of LumaFusion is of high quality. LumaFusion offers a comprehensive video editing experience on Android tablets, with features such as editing up to six video tracks, improved magnetic timeline, and the ability to cut, copy, and paste between projects.

2. Concepts

Concepts, a vector-based sketchpad app, resizes to fit the size of any Android screen and works great with styles. The concepts wanted to make sure their users’ stylus experiences felt as natural as putting a pen on paper. The company used Android’s tools and platforms to help achieve as many zero gaps as possible between the stylus tip and the lines drawn on the canvas of concepts.

“Android’s tools and platforms are making it easier to solve a wide variety of screen sizes and input methods,” says David Burton, CEO of Concepts developer TopHatch. “Android’s mature set of APIs makes it easier.

3. Google Photos

Google Photos is a great way to store and edit images, and with its multi-column layout on tablets, you can see more of your photos at the same time on the big screen. If you’re editing an image, you’ll see a new side panel with smart tips and easy-to-use tools that make editing easier. And if you’re using Google Photos in split screen mode with another app like Gmail that supports drag and drop, you can easily take pictures on your screen and drop them into another app.

4. Sketch Book

Sketchbook, a sketching, painting and drawing app, has developed an intuitive tablet user interface that won’t reach where you’re drawing. The app resizes to fit the size of any screen, and it comes with a full complement of customized brushes. If you’re using styluses with your Android tablet, you can now rotate the stylus on the canvas to review it before pulling out your brush stroke. This can help you create more accurate and accurate drawings.

5. Adobe Light Room

Adobe Lightroom, a popular photo and video editor, uses all the extra screen space on the tablet to make it easier to correctly edit your photos. The app has a vertical navigation bar for all of your editing tools, and if you tap and hold the tablet’s touch screen, you can see what the image looks like before and after your editing. Adobe Lightroom also allows you to edit RAW files, which is ideal for users who love to take RA photos on their Android devices.

6. Canva

Canva, a graphic design app to edit your photos and videos, added drag-and-drop functionality so users can quickly add content to their design. If you’re using Canva in split screen mode, you can drag and drop content from your uploaded files, or apps like Google Photos and Chrome. Canva also updated its layout to have vertical navigation bars on large screens, giving you more space to work.
