Apple Announces iPhoto for iOS: Coming Today at $4.99

At the media event in San Francisco, Apple today announced an all-new version of iPhoto for iPad. Giving users new ways to organize and browse their photos, iPhoto for iPad comes with new effects, new gestures, multi-touch editing, and a new feature to seamlessly share photos between devices.

With a dark interface completely rebuilt for the iPad, iPhoto makes heavy use of gestures to browse and edit photos. With a simple swipe gestures from the side of the screen, users can bring up a list of photos to edit. A double-tap will allow users to automatically find similar pictures, or enter full-screen mode. With support for EXIF information and sharing on various social networks including Flickr, iPhoto for iPad is set to become a great mobile companion to photographers – the app even features an auto-enhance mode to instantly enhance various aspects of an image, as well as other advanced effects. Brushes, white balance, cropping – they can all be accessed through multi-touch gestures and commands in the new iPhoto for iPad.

Aside from skeuomorphic brushes, iPhoto for iPad comes with a new Photo Journals functionality that lets users build “journals” using photos and additional information such as location and weather data using the stored GPS info and various EXIF data from images. Users can move photos around, add captions, choose favorites, and share the results with their friends.

iPhoto is a universal app (runs on the iPhone as well), and it will be released today at $4.99. Check out our complete March 7th coverage here.
