I got this program awhile back. The Luminance app is great for my quick edits and has not let me down yet. I also use

(5★) Adobe Who?
There was an app recently released based of a PC product and I must say this is way better than it. Could use some more features
but no major reason to complain. Love it!

(4★) I always come back to use it!
No matter how many apps I use to edit my photos, I always come back and use this app. Amazing. The filter set is incredibly
awesome.One thing that bothers me is the bugs & continuous crashes on iOS7.

(3★) Missing A Few Pieces
Not sure but, don't believe it has RAW support (Didn't ding it for that).Really needs high pass and USM Sharpening, as well as a

This app most definitely is NOT the best one out there. It is average at best when compared to what is available in the App Store.

I love the app and use it all the time! I think it would be SO much better, though, if it had a brush feature where I could select
