New Filterstorm 3 iconThe new 3.0 update to Filterstorm is in the App Store now. The interface has been completely redesigned and a lot of powerful editing tools have been added.

Says developer Tai Shimizu,

“Filterstorm was designed from the ground up to meet your mobile photo editing needs. Using a uniquely crafted touch interface, Filterstorm allows for more intuitive editing than its desktop counterparts with a toolset designed for serious photography.”

I’ve reposted the preview video above (same one I ran a few days ago) for a quick rundown of the redesigned iPhone interface of Filterstorm 3.

Filterstorm 3 is currently on sale for $1.99 through Friday, June 24. It’s normally $3.99 and is a free update for owners of Filterstorm 2. FS3 is a universal app that’s compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. The 3.0 update now requires iOS 4.2 or newer.
