When Apple unveiled their latest iPad earlier this month, they also announced a new app tailor-made for the new iPad’s retina display. iPhoto for iOS promised users a powerful image editing tool on their iPads (and iPhones). The universal iOS app went live in the App Store not long after Tim Cook left the stage in San Francisco.
Since then, iPhoto has proven to be a hit with reviewers and consumers alike. In fact, iPhoto was downloaded by over one million users in the first ten days after it released, according to The Loop’s Jim Dalrymple. Dalrymple stresses that the figure is users, not downloads. In other words, if you downloaded iPhoto for your iPhone and iPhoto for your iPad, you only count once. That being the case, iPhoto probably saw considerably more than a million downloads in its first ten days.
iPhoto, which requires iOS 5.1, completes the iLife suite on iOS devices. iMovie and GarageBand for iOS were released last year with the iPad 2. iPhoto is a universal app, and is available from the iOS App Store for $4.99.
