Yes. I really like the variety of them. They all do things differently and have a tool that stands out. Camera+'s Clarity, Snapseed's filters, Hipstamatic's 35mm feel, etc.

Is given things away for free when people WILL pay a good way to run a company?

Just because other companies might have done it different doesn't mean this one has to.

Finally, as a free person, you have to option to not buy it.

While I don't disagree with you, I think that there's a little bit of a marketing decision going on here. If they had made the app universal, then everyone who wanted to buy it just for their iPhones or iPod Touches would pay $10 for it. Thus, all of those sales would have garnered $5 more than they will now. In addition, those who bought it already for their iPads would feel like the company is taking care of them by allowing them to run the same app on all of their iOS devices. On the other hand, by making it separate apps for the iPad and iPhone/iPod, they reduce the profit margin for the new sales to iPhone/iPod users, but increase the number of sales because iPad users have to buy a separate app. However, at the same time, they draw some ill will because of the perception that they are not providing coverage for customers to run their app on all of their iOS devices without additional purchases.

Is there a right or wrong choice here? Not really, but each has its consequences.

If, ultimately, they are going to take the two apps in different directions, then I can see the reasoning behind keeping them separate. Time will tell.

For those of you in the U.S. iTunes cards go on sale all the time, usually 20% off. If you are smart enough to stock up then it's only a $4 app -- a gallon of gas is more expensive, and that's only good for 20-30 miles.
Gas must be expensive where you live. Around here I'm spending about $3.25 per gallon right now. And a Prius gets around 45 miles out of that gallon of gas. Just sayin'...

Snapseed + TouchRetouch + Skitch (iPhoto app is a waste of money though) (or Line Camera for fun) are more than enough for my photo editing needs, 3 of them are free

Is it true that if you download 3 adobe products and subscribe to their creative cloud you will get a month of cloud for free to cover the cost?

If so, how long does it take to process?

I use this and another few apps on my ipad for general design work. Amazing App, although it may not be great on the iPhone due to lack of screen space.

Another breaking news indeed. No wonder at all if one day you'll gonna realized that everything you do manually can already be attainable with just one hit or touch on your iPhone. This Photoshop Touch application for the iPhone is something to look forward to, especially for those who are avid of photo taking and editing.
