Photogene was one of the very early photo editing apps for the iPhone and iPad and it has always been one of the most useful and stable apps out there (I’ll be honest, I don’t think it has ever crashed on me). The version for the iPad was updated this morning to version 3.0.
According to the author, this update includes localized effects, collage maker, Picasa upload & more. I tried it out this morning and found the updates very nice, particularly the localized effects and the A/B toggle switch to see the effect of tweaks you make. Below are several pictures from the app. Click on them to see full size version on Flickr.
Overall, this is one of those apps that should be on your iPad. I hope their will be an iPhone update in the future 🙂
