By the end of 2013, Apple's App Store will have over 1 million apps. With so many choices, it's easy to think there's no room for something truly unique, but that would be the wrong conclusion. Faded is out to prove that other photo apps are at best incomplete and at worst obsolete.

Faded is the premiere all-in-one photo app for iPhone with the most powerful editing tools currently available and gorgeous film-inspired effects that will make photo enthusiasts weak in the knees. The app comes with 70 exclusive filters - 34 for free and 36 additional premium filters available for in-app purchase. They capture the beauty and nostalgia of classic film.

The resemblance was intentional. "Our main goal was to give people tools to express themselves and make their photos truly unique," said Tyler Ramsey, Faded's lead designer. "We set out to create the best photo app in the App Store. But my brother and I grew up California so we thought it would be fun to give a nod to Hollywood too."

Faded's full capabilities are impressive to say the least. Hobbyists will appreciate a bottomless well of features, custom filters, and cool effects, such as double exposure.

Dedicated photographers will find in the app many of the pro-level features they've been missing in other apps. For example, you can access the complete adjustment history of any image, revert back to any point in the editing process, and save your specific edits as your own personalized filter, or "action."

An iOS photo app with custom actions? It's about time. And speaking of time, Faded has a snap timer. This photo app will leave you saying, "Faded, where have you been all my life?"

Faded 1.0 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Photo & Video category.
