Windows 8.1 App Watch: PicsArt

You may have seen plenty of ports on the Windows Store, but this one can handily be termed as Port Royale. A Windows 8.1 version of the universally popular PicsArt app is now available.

And this mobile photo editing application brings a number of tools right in the Metro UI.

The editor, for instance, offers an impressive range of functionality for a mobile app — no doubt enriched by the years of development on competing platforms, where it is held in high regard. Not comparable to desktop image editors, of course, but good enough for all sorts of basic tasks.

A selection from the official description:

“PicsArt- where everyone becomes creative! The most popular mobile photo-editing application is now available on your Windows PC or tablet – enabling you to become an artist on any device! It is an all in one photo editor and drawing tool for all your editing and artistic needs.”

The highlight of the app is its photo editors that offers all sorts of image manipulation techniques, including a variety of effects, a collage maker and even a drawing tool to unleash your creativity either on photos or blank backgrounds.

Social features are another draw of this free app — works from other members are display for inspiration and commenting. Touch optimized, obviously, and supports all modern versions of Windows.
