I’m a pro photographer who does a lot of post-processing of DSLR photos, and I find this app just too complicated. I always find myself going to SnapSeed instead.

Slow, even on an iPhone 5. And it's no replacement for pro editing tools on a Mac. I regret this purchase.

On the iPhone 5, it's FAST and smooth. Same on the 3rd Generation iPad. I have made several Journals that sync with iCloud & is great way to share pics with family (in addition to PhotoStream sharing). Great replacement for MobileMe Galleries.
