Filterstorm Neue provides you with all the photo editing tools you need; everything from powerful masking tools to simple pre-made filters. It has been rewritten to to be faster, easier to use, and to take full advantage of your device’s hardware. Photojournalists will enjoy features like FTP and IPTC metadata with code replacements (see website for more details), purists can use curves and masking to dodge and burn, and iPhoneographers of all skill levels can enjoy the set of photo effects included. Combine this feature set with the beautiful fluid new interface and you have a photo editing package that can’t be beat.

Tiling allows you to edit images larger than the maximum texture size of your GPU (4096x4096 on newer devices, 2048x2048 on iPhone4). Since iPhone pictures are less than the maximum texture size since the iPhone 4S, you can edit at full size without this feature on most phones.
*This feature is currently unavailable when using image tiling

Masking/Gradient Tools Broken
I've tried with numerous photos in either the B&W or the Curves section to apply gradient filters and the constant default color is a fuschia. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to fix this. It works correctly on my iPhone 6 but not on the iPad. Need to update??
*UPDATE* i figured out that you could go into the settings menu of every mask and toggle to highlight the mask area. My problem is resolved! I would like to see something similar to LR where you could choose to see the applied mask area with a 2/3 finger touch register. That would be great!! I love this for editing, this is such a powerful app it's almost too much to comprehend at once. Mastery of this is more akin to a higher education degree. But seriously KUDOS to the dev for developing an app that can literally do what LR can do minus a few features. Please keep updating!!
I am finding this app very cumbersome. Perhaps on an iPad it would be easier to manipulate the photo; however, on the iPhone the controls are hard to adjust and the presentation of the pic makes it difficult. It opens zoomed for one. You can pinch to zoom out, but often it will zoom back in or move around while editing. It's just hard to use. I also think, despite what some would say, the lack of preset filters are a shortcoming. On a PC or Mac, a full editor is a purists paradise, yet on a phone or tablet you have a much smaller area to work. It's nice when presets and auto-fixes clean up a photo then allow you to tweak from there. At least in my experience, the other top photo editors on iOS will give you a range of present filters and make editing much faster. Overall, this is a decent app but the interface, albeit pretty, is hard to use.
