Cool App Giveaway: Handy Photo ®

Submitted by on March 21, 2013 – 4:45 am 102 Comments


Handy Photo is the amazing new photo app from the developers of TouchRetouch and AntiCrop. It lets you perform image editing, color moves, cloning, basic retouching, advanced retouching, and about the most advanced clip and paste I’ve ever seen on any platform. It’s got a lot of tools found in desktop photo programs costing hundreds of dollars more.

I’ve got a few copies of Handy Photo to give away this week. Keep reading to find out how you can win one. >>>

handy photo for iphone, ipadYou can read my hands-on review of Handy Photo here. It’s one of a handful of apps that I’ve given a five-star rating to (actually, there are fewer than five).

It’s a very impressive piece of software that does a lot of heavy lifting on an iPhone. The magic Move tool is especially impressive. It combines a smart lasso that does a good job of finding the the edge of your object with minimal touch-ups with a content-aware fill that automagically rebuilds the space behind. Content-aware manipulations are processor-intensive and Handy Photo handles all of them with ease on my iPhone 5. some image will yield better results than others, but Handy Photo is the best tool for making these types of content aware edits that I’ve found. I absolutely love the app.

Handy Photo is only $1.99. I think it’s a steal at that price. It’s a Universal app designed for both iPhone and iPad. Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.

    I saw this on dpreview’s connect site. Didn’t want to buy yet another redundant app that the devs will just make free in a couple months, but I paid the $2 anyway.

    Glad I did! This does everything Touch Retouch AND Anticrop do, but MUCH better plus some other cool stuff.

    Thanks for the inspiration and app tips. I find that I am using my phone more and my now all too heavy camera less.
