You can also add text and word balloons if you're feeling really creative with images and words. Other features of this BlackBerry photo editor app include image cropping and zoom. Controls may be a little wonky at times because it is, after all, beta software. For basic editing, though, it does its job. It's perfect for casual photo editors, beginners and anyone who just wants to have a little fun with photos while they are on the go. Mini Paint will cost you $4.99.

If inserting cute images and word balloons does not satisfy your creativity, your BlackBerry needs Doodle. With several colors, 16 to be exact, and 4 stroke sizes, you can do finger painting right on your smartphone. This BlackBerry photo editor app lets you take a photo from right inside the application so you can start drawing on it. If you have existing pictures in your BlackBerry, you can use those too. If finger painting on a photo still does not float your boat, you can use Doodle's four image effects, Invert Colors, Grayscale, Infrared and Sepia, to spice up your image. Saving your works of art is as easy as clicking a button and starting from scratch is as simple as shaking your BlackBerry. It's a world of fun and creativity in a $2.99 app. This is highly recommended for creative people who love taking pictures and drawing.
