Native screenshots have made our lives easier. Earlier, we had to perform various tricks to take a simple screenshot but as Android started growing, built-in screenshot shortcuts were introduced. However, most Android phones still lack the edit option for screenshots.

Apps To Add Arrows And Text To Pictures On Android 1

Here, in this post, we have hand-picked 6 Android apps that let you add text and other graphics like arrows, rectangle to your images and screenshots.

1. Screen Master: Screenshot & Photo Markup

Screen Master is the most popular and widely-used tool to annotate images on Android. Not only does the app provide multiple ways to annotate images, it also makes it easy to capture screenshots using various shortcuts. These include a floating button and a shake to take screenshots.

You can also edit old images using this app. This Android app provides functions such as shape crop, stickers, text, and even adds mosaic to blur the images. In addition to that, you can doodle on images and add arrows, boxes, and circles to mark the image.

2. Screenshot Utility

While the Screenshot utility app does not provide shortcuts for taking screenshots, it opens up automatically if you take a screenshot. This makes it easy to edit screenshots. You can also edit old images.

Similar to Screen Master, Screenshot Utility also offers really good markup features. These include draw, crop image, add text, arrows, box, circle, and etc. This mobile app also lets you blur your images. You can even change the intensity of the blur.

3. Snap Markup - Photo, Image, Picture Markup Tool

Snap Markup is another cool tool that provides all the necessary annotation options. You can use circles, rectangles, arrows, lines, and triangles to markup an image. You can also crop and rotate an image using this app.

While the app lets you draw on images, it doesn’t provide a native option to add text. If you want to add text, you will have to draw the letters.

4. Screenshot Snap Free

Like the above-mentioned apps, Screenshot Snap Free also provides all the essential annotation tools. The only place where this app sucks is user interface (UI).

Although it works perfectly well, the UI seems kind of weird and scratchy.

5. Photo Ink - Mark, Sign, Draw

Photo Ink is a simple markup tool that lets you write on your images. You can change the type, size, and color of the pencil. It does not provide shapes like rectangles, circles, and triangles, etc. But, if you want, you can draw them manually.

Interestingly, this Android app lets you use the same markup on multiple images. If you have edited an image and you want multiple images to have the same annotation, this app lets you do it easily.

6. PicsArt Photo Studio: Collage Maker & Pic Editor

PicsArt is a full-blown photo editor that not only lets you add text to your images but also lets you draw on photos. You can also add various types of shapes like rectangle, circles, and multiple types of arrows. Other than the simple markup features, this app provides some powerful photo-editing tools.
