PhotoForge2 – the superb looking upcoming new version of the popular image editing app – is going to hit the App Store this week, on Thursday May 19. I posted last week on the video preview of this app – and it really looks fantastic.
That’s the good news. The not so good news is that although it will be released as a universal app it will not include native iPad support on release. As in, no proper iPad version on launch day. The developers promise that the iPad version is coming ‘very soon’.
Hopefully that means within a few weeks we’ll see an update and full iPad support. In the meantime, with this type of app the iPhone version, though far from ideal, may be usable on the iPad.
The developers are trying their best to do right by their current users. Though upgrades are not allowed to new apps in the App Store, they are offering PhotoForge2 for just 99 cents on launch day. So if you’re an existing user, or you just want a great deal on a great looking app, grab this one up on Thursday.
