I already have Snapseed and I can see why this is such a highly rated app.

Is it necessary to get Photogene and or Photoforge 2 to complete the workflow setup? I don't know what these two apps offer that Snapseed doesn't. Photoforge 2 is currently on sale and I'm thinking of getting it, but I don't know if Photogene is any better and that isn't on sale at the moment.

Any comments?

I'm not being critical, but just trying to learn/understand. :) Why would you ever want to edit an image on an iPad?

I apologize for not being able to address your question.

i have both snapseed and photoforge 2 for my ipad.
if you want speedy editing i suggest using snapseed.
if you want an app with more powerful tools i say go for photoforge.

snapseed is fast and have an almost instantaneous response. i use it for smaller files and quick edits.

photoforge is more powerful, almost like photoshop touch. layers, masks, blending modes, the whole works with a few missing tools you can only find in photoshop touch. the only downside is that it has to render each setting change. blending modes dont appear until you click ok.

@bob there are photographers who edit their photos on the fly with their ipads. a lot of home users also use their ipads to send emails to family and friends. i use my ipad on location shoots to see actual results through photoforge (it can open raw files). its lighter than bringing a laptop and more portable.
