A second in a series of iPhone digital imaging app reviews...

Photogene by Omer Shoor - Price: $1.99

Much like Photoforge that I discussed in yesterday's post, Photogene is a good all purpose image editor for the iPhone. Photogene includes a number of nice preset border treatments, but lacks painting tools like Photoforge.

  • Menus can disappear with a tap for full screen view

  • Nice drop shadows and reflection.
  • 8 special effects include sepia, black and white, pencil, and night vision.
  • Ability to work in portrait of landscape mode.
  • Ability to add text balloons.
  • Share photos with Facebook, Twitter, or "Hall of Fame" online gallery


  • Lacks clone tool.
  • Lacks any painting tools
  • Lacks noise reduction feature.
  • Lacks layering function.
