On the non-destructive editing front, a feature seen mostly on high end desktop image editing software, Snapseed comes with the Stacks feature. This lets you re-edit or undo the changes made to a particular photograph during any stage of post processing. You can also copy edits from one image to the other.

In a post on Google+, Nils Kokemohr says, "We’ve updated the app in many ways while staying true to our mission of helping everyone easily create extraordinary images."

You can edit images shot not just on your phone, but also from DSLRs or compact digital cameras.
