Rick Sammon's 50+ Tips for Nik Color Efex Pro

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
"Rick Sammon’s 50+ Tips for Nik Color Efex Pro" is actually three iPhone/iPad apps in one: 1) Illustrative app showing before-and-after examples of every filter in Nik Color Efex Pro; 2) An app with more than 50 photo tips; 3) Wallpaper app with more than 50 photographs that can be used as wallpaper for your iPhone and iPad.
The app is on sale for $0.99 until 5.1.13. After that the price goes to $1.99.
Photographer Rick Sammon, author of 11 apps (and 36 books), developed this text/photo app to show you the creative and corrective features of Nik Color Efex Pro, one of his favorite plug-ins. It is a how-to app illustrated with before-and-after examples for each filter. The app does not work like Snapseed, which is an image-editing app.
Rick says, “Plug-ins help you awaken the artist within.” With this app, you are well on your way to creating artistic and creative images, with a few clicks of your mouse.
Rick partnered with app developer Keith Kolmos on this app. Keith and Rick also collaborated on Rick’s wallpaper apps: Big Cats and Butterfly Wonders, as well as Rick Sammon’s Social Media Marketing for Photographers.
What's New in Version 1.02
Does what it says!
It shows what each effect does with a description and also shows an example. If you have used Nik, you know there isn't much as far as a description of what each does. This solves that. For .99 its worth the read and to have as a reference whenever you need it.
Great Flow and Super Tips
This is the way to do it, great visual examples on the Nik filters along with a useful tip. Already found several that I've been able to apply and also a couple I now see new ways to expand on.
The flow and simplicity of the app makes it a joy to use.
As mentioned previously, this app is 'as advertised'. Sure, anyone can go through each filter, but having Rick give users a before and after overview right at their fingers tips is very helpful. I've used the app to help me decide whether a particular filter fits my workflow and my vision for a photo.
