Photogene² for iPhone is nothing like its predecessor except when you compare the quality. That is still there. The app has been completely updated from scratch. As an avid user of the older app, the first thing that stuck me was the speed. Edits seemingly happen in near instant real time.
Photogene² is not also one of the best photo editors in the AppStore but also one great camera. The stabilizer feature will make it hard for you to go back to the iPhone’s stock camera app. If can also just import photos from your library if needed.
Your albums will be neatly separated into alphabetical thumbnail stacks. You can pick the thumbnail size that works best for you. The options are small, medium, and large. I recommend the small size so that you can get a better view of everything you have.
If you take pictures, you can use flash, Shutter, Stabilizer, FaceTime view (front-facing camera). There are filters galore. You will be able to see the preview of any filter before making it permanent. Over all this a great app that should be firmly placed on your home page.
Pro: There are so many photo editing apps out there that it is hard to find one that stands out. One that lacks any issues. A photo editing app that is simple to use, yet has enough features to keep you using it everyday. This app is above and beyond anything else out there.
Con: The only way this app could be better is if it also did video. Than it would not only be the must have iPhone photo editing app but also give video apps a run too. The interface is so nice that it sometimes distracting.
Aye/Nay: This is a Aye. This app is like nothing that I have used before. Its ability to upload your pictures to social networks as well as Flickr is an extra bonus. Photogene² stands above the rest. $5 is worth it.
