As the editor of iPhography.com I have seen & tested hundreds of apps. So after testing this, I fail to see why it has rated so high by everyone including Apple (runner up for app of the year 2011). It’s not my intention to bag this app but merely provide some balance to the rediculous amount of 5star reviews for what I would give a 2 to 3 star rating for.
My guess is the app maker either has a lot of friends (in high places) or people haven’t tried the much better apps that are available
The filters are ok if you don’t want to edit the photo yourself but other than that the only editing feature I like is tone curve. It’s really quite limited. I don’t like the workflow or having to add each new adjustment (as opposed to just using it). There is also many basic adjustments missing, like sharpen, straighten etc
I’ve actually just deleted the app from my phone, I don’t think I’ll use it again unless it has a radical overhaul
You would be much better served by photogene 2, photoforge 2 or snapseed
Or if you like simple to use cute filters try pictureshow
I fail to see why Apple one of the best designed product companies in the world would choose to showcase what their amazing products are capable of by highlighting this under-performing app. It’s average, not great
