New memories are made every day and preserving them in clicks is your duty. Whether it’s your son’s first day to the school or your promotion party, new events keep on coming your way and life is never out of stock. Though these pictures can’t depict the actual feeling of the moment, but still on your behalf you try to take the best out of it. So you head to one of the best editing tools available to you and though you take the shots with your phone, you have to transfer the images to your PC or laptop because that’s where the hub of these editing tools lies like Windows Photo Editor, Picasa, etc. But if you could edit your photos within your phone and share them directly from there, it would have been more convenient and smart. So let’s travel the smarter way this time!

I am talking about the new iPhone app called Modern Photo Editor. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 6.0 or later version of the OS. The app has also been optimized for iPhone 5. The app is available in English and French and is available under the Photo & Video category.


Though there are many other photo editors available in the market, this one is special because it is fully loaded with high quality features. Talking about the features, there are 17 colour effect filters, 10 image adjustments, 10 spot-editing brushes, 15 natural textures, complete history log, 4 orientation fixes, 16 frames and one crop tool as well. So you can see that it’s nothing short of a PC tool. Now the other best thing is that many of these effects are unique and can’t be found anywhere else. The spot brush really is a handy feature to customize the pictures locally whether it is about changing the brightness or the sharpness level. The colour effects cover the entire range of variations possible.


The UI of the app is very intuitive and beautifully designed. First, using the different editing tools such as spot brush is quite easy. The entire tool palette is situated at the right side of the screen and you can navigate between different options from the bottom of the screen. So even when you’re editing something, all the different tools are available to you. Reverting back or undoing as much as you want is what’s missing from most of these kinds of apps and is really a cool addition. Then you have the crop tool as well which is quite rare.


The app is available for $0.99 in the App Store. It’s the perfect price and maybe less than deserving because there are so many features that you’ll never have to face your PC for such a purpose at least. So go buy this one.

Pros: intuitive UI; fully loaded with features; very simple to use.

Cons: none.

I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars. *****
