    Or is there another app out there that can do everything that iPhoto does plus more?

    Reading reviews helps. I do love iPhoto though. Very powerful.

    Yes it's definitely worth a buy.
    It's very impressive as to what they fit into that little app.

    I bought it because it was made by Apple and because I wanted to complete the iLife collection thing (I already had the other two).

    I almost never use it. So think about it.

    I use Lightroom and occasionally Photoshop Elements so for someone like me, probably not.

    Check out Pixelmator.

    I also use iPhoto, and for my (not very advanced) purposes it works fine.

    +1 it's worth to buy it, but not sure it's worth to upgrade...

    The latest version on iPhoto(9.3) on the Mac store is not compatible with Snow Leopard. You did not make a mention of what OSX you ran, but I just want that little fact thrown out there. I bought iPhoto when Lion was not a requirement, but now I'm in line for the upgrade(running 9.2.3) and I'm blocked by the OS from getting it.:mad:

    The other ridiculous thing is that I can't cancel the notification in the Mac Store app because there is no mechanism to cancel it. I'm stuck with the Mac Store app in my dock showing 1 update ready. I hope, since Apple is almost exclusively going to the Mac App store, they will figure out how to allow consumer's to cancel notifications that don't apply to them/that particular machine. I'm sure I'm not the only person in Apple's universe to be splitting apps among 2 different operating systems.

    I love iPhoto. The only complaint is that it has become a little laggy with my large photo library on my C2D machine. Hopefully my new retina MBP solves that issue!

    iPhoto and CS5 are a great combo on my '09 MBP.

    Unless I'm wrong, the OP is talking about iPhoto (or alternatives) on iPad.
    This would rule out Pixelmator, CS5 and others - no?
