    WTF?

    " Also present in the app are a number of social features"
    What's with every developer putting a "social" part in their app. This is a decorator app. Take a picture. Make the change. When it looks good then go buy the paint. Simple. Developers need to make apps that offer good functionality and value and stop wasting time jumping on the "social" bandwagon. Much of the time it just wastes resources.
