What is it?
► This photo editor is both powerful and easy to use.

Pro:
► Unique and consistent touch user interface – very easy to use once you know it: swipe horizontally to adjust value; swipe vertically to change adjustment type.
► Prefect swipe control let you adjust value precisely.
► Filter adjustment is more gradual than other editors in the Appstore. This enhances the level of control over the filters.
► Smart and easy Auto Correct – it automatically corrects your photo’s problem. I found the correction is pretty accurate.
► Powerful Selective Adjust – you can edit an area without affecting the whole photo. It is great for correcting spot problems and enhancing landscape photo.
► Support RAW files – it is a rarity in iOS apps
► Support high mega pixel photo up to 20.25MP (iPad 3rd Gen & iPhone 5)

Con:
► The range of adjustment is quite narrow. You will not get extreme effects out of the filters.
► Only support sharing on Google+, why not support Facebook as well?

In-App Ad:
► None
