There have been many mixed reviews over Apple’s newest app, iPhoto for iOS. The app allows users to make quick edits to their photos and then share them across social networks. Some say they love it, while others say it’s too clunky to use.

However, that’s not stopping customers from downloading the new app. Apple told The Loop today that the $4.99 app is now being used by 1 million users, since its launch 10 days ago…

As a reminder, iPhoto for iOS features:

Use simple gestures to quickly sort through photos and find your best shots. A powerful set of Multi-Touch tools helps you perfect color and exposure, crop, straighten, and retouch images. Enhance pictures by adding beautiful, Apple-designed effects with just a tap. Or use fingertip brushes to apply adjustments exactly where you want them. In addition to posting photos to Facebook, Flickr, and Twitter, you can beam photos between your iPhone and iPad, stream photos and slideshows to your Apple TV with AirPlay, and use iCloud to publish photo journals to the web to share your stories with friends and family in a whole new way.

Apple introduced iPhoto for iOS at its third-generation iPad event on March 7th. It is currently only available for devices running iOS 5.1, excluding the original iPad. However, it is possible to get the app running on iOS 5.0.1 and the original iPad with some trickery. Apple isn’t counting downloads in today’s numbers, but users that have actually purchased the app.

You can download iPhoto for iOS from the App Store for $4.99.

What do you think of the app?

    iPhoto on the iPhone is not a fun experience. It has some great features for a mobile photo editor app but it doesn’t work good on such a small screen. I know it was designed for iPad though and when I get one I hope to be using it a lot more.

  • What do you guys like more on the iPad? –> iPhoto or PhotoShop?

      i would like iDB’s input as well. Adobe’s price point is higher but I’ve read that there is a cap on the resolution when you save the photo

      I tried both and in my opinion, Adobe Photoshop Touch is by far the best (for me). I’ve been using Photoshop for more than 10 years and I really like the options it offers.

      The one thing I’ll give iPhoto is the way it shows you the albums, but the ‘updating photo library’ everytime you start it up drives me nuts.

    I plunked down my $4.99 and have frankly been disappointed with its performance on my iPhone4.

    It runs a bit sluggish and is not as intuative as I had thought it would be.

    Also, WTF??? Why is it almost IMPOSSIBLE to find an iOS photo editor that INCLUDES adding TEXT titles or captions???

    There are so many times I want to fix up the photo and add a quick title or caption to it. For the $4.99, I would have expected this feature to be included!

    Honestly, IMO, had I paid $0.99 or even $1.99 I would have been happy with it, but $4.99, I feel more ripped off and would not recommend it to anyone.

    There are other great iOS apps that cost less, and do MORE!!!

  • Im not a huge fan if iPhoto on the iPhone i would rather just have millions of photo editing apps to get the effect i want then that terrible buggy app.

    I tried out the ‘trial version’ on my iPad 2 just to see how it would run. The patch fixed the crashing but I really disliked the program. I discarded it and will keep using Photoshop Touch (which I bought).

  • I havent downloaded it, but from what Ive seen its a great piece of software and as Tim Cook stated: great apps sales!
