We are delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photography/art tutorial for our reading and viewing pleasure. This week Jobe takes a look at the app Polarr Photo Editor. This is Part 1 of a 2 part series. Read his thoughts as he puts it through its paces (foreword by Joanne Carter).
"The iOS mobile photo app market is getting crowded as it matures. There are only so many things that people are wanting or needing to do with their photos. Developers who want to enter the market in a big way have to give users a new function, or rework the way more traditional functions are done.
This is especially difficult with a new basic photo editor. Given that thousands of apps out there will do Brightness, Contrast, Temperature, Sharpening, Exposure, and even Curves, how can you possibly give the user added value over the existing monsters like Snapseed, Filterstorm Neue and others?
Polarr is a new basic editor that seeks to become your app of choice, but does it offer enough to catch the loyalty of users? Let’s take a look and find out."
