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

• Returns “Open In..” functionality to export menu

Recommend, But Some Serious Over-Complexities
This app will do a lot for your photos, but in trying to be everything it is almost as cumbersome as Photoshop Touch. I wish it would allow certain tasks to be done quickly and simply. For me, I was looking to do some basic editing (curves, color, etc.) on selective parts of photos (similar to what Snapseed offers but with more control over where the effect takes place) but it is so complicated to do that with this app (masking, not seeing the effect until you hit the check mark, etc.) I will not use it very often. That is a big frustration for me, but this is still an app I recommend. Except for the lack of a Transform tool and the ability to save a project as a collection of layers, this seems to do everything PS Touch does. So a lower rating for the cumbersome nature of some simple tasks, and a higher rating for its comprehensive abilities, and I end up with a right-in-the-middle three stars.
I use it a lot
I use this app quite a bit because the interface suits me. It’s easy to select editing features with the left semi-transparent palettes rather than continuously swiping to access a hidden left menu. I also like the effects and masks available. There are a few shortcomings as noted by other reviewers but I still go to this app first for editing needs. My biggest wish would be for an extension that would allow me to open Filterstorm from the Photos library.
Never deleted an app so fast.
At $4 you would think that this app would at least be decent. That thought is very incorrect. The "clone" feature, which is essentially what I bought this app for, is terrible. All of the other features are better in less expensive, more functional apps (VSCO, Afterlight, etc.) Your money is better spent elsewhere.
