For Snapchat, we all know that the doggy filter is the undying trend and there more than 50 filters in that app, and also there is another feature called the bitmoji. You can use the bitmoji stickers on your pictures to make it look more fun.

PicsArt is great if you are creative. Pixlr, Adobe Lightroom and Snapseed are must if you want a professional touch on your photos, however you can choose any of them, whatever is more convenient for you. The rest of the apps are equally good so if you want you should just download all of them.
