According to AllThingsD, iPhoto for iOS passed the one million download mark last week. That’s quite an impressive figure, particularly when it implies Apple has earned more than five million dollars from the app in less than a two week period.
Apple released the final piece of its popular iLife suite of user-friendly creative apps at the Apple Event in San Francisco early this Month where the new iPad was unveiled.
Critics - like our own Kevin Stout in his review - quickly noted the app's simple interface that offers moderately advanced editing features in a way best suited to the multi-touch screen and gesture controls. It also seems that users agree that at $4.99 for a universal build of a photo app that can beam pictures from device to device, create web-hosted photo journals, and touch up photos with simple sliders and brush-on effects is a winner too.
Here’s hoping that theses results motivate to the folks in Cupertino to apply the winning formula to all their software. Then at the next iPad launch we can dream of an Aperture app to compete with Photoshop Touch and to seeing other professional-grade Apple software adapted to their mobile platforms with the prices adjusted accordingly.
