Black and White editor that does more than many color editors

I’ve discovered that you can work with color images in Tonality as well, though it is not its prime functionality.
All the tools are really fantastic and are worth more than you really pay. It’s way more than in any other monochrome editor on the App Store (I’ve tried free demos of all and Tonality is by far the best). I highly recommend it if you really like taking pictures.

The best black & white photo editor!

The more I use Tonality, the more I fall in love with it. The app has a great UI, so it’s easy to navigate through it, and the ready-made presets are awesome. It feels that developers have put a lot of hard work into making this app intuitive and easy to use. It’s the best black & white photo editor that I’ve ever used.

Love it so much!

I am a fan of black and white photos. So when I discovered this app on the App store I was so amazed by its functionality. It is so simple but powerful at the same time. Not only Editor’s choice - it’s my choice for a lifetime.
