Apple’s iPhoto has a relatively modest set of editing tools but – as you might expect from Apple – wraps them up in an attractive and easy-to-use interface that leaves most other photo-editing apps looking positively antiquated.

      Recent experience?

      @AC: "Extemely Limited but looks nice - kinda like Fisher-price"

      I found it very capable for the form factor, but it's been a very long time since I handled anything from Fisher-Price to compare it with. Sounds like you have some very recent experience though.

      You don't get it, do you?

      "Extemely (sic) Limited but looks nice." - your paraphrase, not theirs. So "Looking nice" is a bad thing now, is it? Besides, it didn't say that; it said that the interface was very slick, which is a different thing altogether (it also didn't say "Extremely limited").

      So what's with the mentality that Good GUI = nothing more than eye candy = something to be sneered at? Perhaps anything with a CPU in it should have nothing more than a command line interface? (Command line? those are for script kiddies. Real men use assembler).

    Seems to do what most want it to

    Easy to use, fairly intuitive and does enough to make your pics look nice without having to do a training course first.

    Just what the majoirty of people would like. It'll probably sell well but I agree that it should really come bundled with iOS.

    855 for an app that does not let you sync your picture off to iphoto on your mac, does not let you manage the photos and has no way to get photobooks printed that you spent so long creating. Is the Reg trying to get into Apple's good books? I would call this app still very much a beta, a long way to go before I start trying to use it again.

      If you use iCloud on your phone, they'll sync to your Mac

    Free on a Mac

    It's only free on a new Mac though isn't it.... you don't get new major versions for free do you?

      Quite correct — and the Mac version is £10.49, which makes the iPad version look even better.
