AI has revolutionized all industries worldwide. Whether it’s self-driving cars, smart robots or chatbots, almost every industry uses some form of artificial intelligence to improve operations. The same is the case with modern Android apps that are packed with AI tools to automate your tasks.
AI image generators are a category of tools that allow you to create images, illustrations and art by giving the app a written description. The smart algorithms behind the apps decode that description and give you results in the form of images.
So let’s look at some of the prominent Android AI image generators available on Google Play and put them to the test. To make the results comparable, we generated the same three samples with each app using prompts: “Ancient Civilization”, “Old Berlin” and “Neon City”.
Like all the apps on this list, starryai lets you turn your ideas into art by generating images based on the text you provide. You can create different types of art with it without having to draw a single line.
To create your artwork, select Enter a prompt on the home page, and on the next screen, enter the description of the image you want to generate. You can also press Add styles to create the image in a certain style. Additionally, at the top of your screen, there is also an option to select the AI you want to use, each suited for particular purposes.
You have that too Advanced settings at the bottom if you want to fine-tune the results even more. When you’re done, tap Create to generate your image. It also has a nice little feature that saves all your work My collection so you can use it later.
As you can see from the results, the first two images are quite realistic, and the third one appears to be hand drawn and colored, making it quite artistic. Overall, the images are not bad at all and are serviceable. You can get creative with it and generate some interesting artwork by fiddling with the settings.
The app works with credits you can buy or earn by completing short tasks. If you keep completing the tasks, starryai will remain free.

2. AI Art
AI Art is a minimal image generator for Android with a simple interface that allows you to quickly create images. You can use different styles and possibly add a sample image to give the app an idea of what you are looking for.

The results of this app are more detailed than the results of starryai. The building in the first image has more depth, and the “Old Berlin” image is suitably black and white. The third also fits the description of “Neon City” well.

The photos created with Photoleap are among the best we’ve had from these apps. The first and third images are quite artistic, while the second one tries to capture the description nicely. This, combined with its photo editing features, makes Photoleap a good choice in this category.

Dawn has an elegant design that makes generating images super easy. The community feed allows you to draw inspiration from the artwork of other users. And the best thing about the community feed is that you can use the prompts or descriptions from other people’s photos.
Dawn has a robust style menu that even lets you create your own custom styles. You can also choose from a list of options such as artwork, illustration types, trending styles and many more.
It also has an interesting and fun feature called Sketch that allows you to draw a rough sketch of the required artwork instead of just typing in what you want. Additionally, you can apply styles to it and add a description as well.
To create your artwork, first choose between Text and Sketch. After that, enter your question, add your preferred style and select the image aspect ratio. When you’re ready, tap Generate images.
The first image generated with Dawn is a bit blurry with very little detail. However, the second and third images are artistic, colorful and detailed. However, the app has potential and you can get the desired result by regenerating the one you don’t like.
Note that the free version has some limitations, such as watermarks on the images, saving results and a lower generation speed. You can unlock the full power of the app with in-app purchases.

The results we got from Vision are different compared to the other apps. Although the images are not realistic, they have a certain artistic touch. They seem like handmade paintings, which makes Vision a good choice for generating this kind of art.
