    "I really like this photo editing app for my ipad. It has a lot of great features, including the ability to add grain effects, which I use a lot. The only downside is that the interface has recently been updated, and is not as intuitive as it once was. Taking off a star for the design/interface changes."

    "As far as anyone can tell, this app is not related to the problem at hand. It boasts being able to edit photos, but there is no indication if it can add grain affects to images, which is what I'm looking for, specifically."
