Now features an in-app 'Camera Pack' purchase
Adobe has updated the iOS version of Photoshop Express (free) to 2.0, enhancing the camera workflow that debuted in v1.5 and adding full support for multi-tasking and the iPhone 4's Retina Display. The company has also added its first in-app purchase, a "Camera Pack" add-on.
Photoshop Express, which also runs on desktop web browsers and Android devices, boasts over 20 million users. The mobile version offers easy, basic editing of existing or just-snapped photos, along with uploading the results to social networks like Facebook and Twitter.
The new in-app purchase, dubbed "Camera Pack," ($4) features a powerful noise filter, a self timer (three or 10-second intervals) and Auto Review, which allows users to quickly check pictures and easily delete the "bad" ones immediately after taking them. While the program works on the iPad 2 (and original iPad), it does not yet support the iPad 2 cameras (the company expects to add support in a future update).
Photoshop Express v2 for iOS requires iOS 4.2 or later, and the add-in Camera Pack requires a third- or fourth-generation iPod Touch, or an iPhone (3GS or later) or iPad. The program is presently offered in English only.
