Filterstorm has been designed from the ground up to meet your iPad and iPhone photo editing needs. Using a uniquely crafted touch interface, Filterstorm allows for more intuitive editing than its desktop counterparts with a toolset designed for serious photography. A favorite of Photojournalists, Filterstorm is at home in a professional workflow, or for anyone who simply wants to get the most out of their pictures while on the road.
Filterstorm contains a suite of powerful tools including layers, curves manipulation, color correction abilities, noise reduction, sharpening, vignetting, and black and white conversion fine-tuning. It also includes the powerful ability to adjust masks by brush, color range, gradient, and vignettes.
Tutorial videos are available at http://filterstorm.com and are linked to from within the app.

"Filterstorm was designed for the iPad from the beginning, and is a study in limitation and excellence." - App Craver
"While Filterstorm certainly won’t replace your image-optimization workflow on your desktop computer, it can prove useful (and fun) enough that you will want to put it to use for quick adjustments to fine-tune an image you want to share via your iPad. " - Digital Photo Pro
What's New in Version 2.6.4
• Fixes possible hanging on opening/closing collections
• Fixes issues with IPTC sets on iOS 7
• Fixes problem with creation of empty "From iTunes" folders.
For $15 I really expected more. This is a full featured app that has been executed poorly. The interface is clunky and awkward. The controls are not intuitive, and the online tutorials are very amateur looking. It needs some written online help to better explain what the controls do.
I was really hoping that this would be my go to photo editing app but instead, I am going to remove it from my ipad air and go back to Photogene and Laminar Pro. I do not recommend this app. Save your money people.
App crashes with latest update
This app crashes when trying to access photo library. I've tried troubleshooting it with deleting/ reinstalling, resetting the iPad with soft and hard reset, deleting iCloud data, and pretty much everything else. It does work when denying access to photo library via settings but that won't be much use. I would appreciated if you can fix it. Thank you.
Not reading photo library
The app no longer shows the most recent photos in my ipad library. Scrolling movements are halting, no longer smooth. I hope these issues will be addressed soon.
