Works As Advertised
Does exactly what it's supposed to. If the image you're working with is low-res to begin with, and if you're cropping down to a small portion of said image, the resulting new image only looks blurry because you're viewing an enlarged chunk of the low res picture. Great app, some of the negative reviews are way off base.

Works very well!
I was expecting at least some small glitches, given a few of the other reviews, but my experience has only been positive. Here are my observations: - For best results, start with the clearest photo possible. - if you try to zoom too much, yes, the results will be blurry... but the iPhone camera has a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels. Don't expect a selection that only has a 200 x 200 area to be clear or sharp! The app is only able to work with available data. Not sure what resampling method is currently being used (should probably bicubic with a sharpening filter for actual reductions, or bicubic with smoothing for enlargement/zoom), but there might be a little room for optimization there. - Make sure you are using the latest version of the iPhone software. A previous versionof the OS had a bug when displaying certain resolution app-processed photos, such that only the thumbnail was displayed, rather than the full image.

Best cropping app. out there!
This app works exactly as stated. I cannot find any of the problems some have mentioned but I can say this with full confidence. When you crop a photo at full screen size and then view the cropped image the at full screen size it will be fuzzy. This is not a problem with the app. You are viewing less pixels in the same size area which will cause the resolution to drop. I have taken a photo, flipped it 180 degrees, save it, reloaded it, flipped it 180 degrees again and saved it. The original and the twice flipped photo are exact duplicates which is to be expected. Not one pixel is out of place. Great app. which has been criticized by others who probably don't comprehend what cropping means. Thanks!

Works For Me
I needed an easy way to crop some pics and this did the job for me. Thanks for making this available for free. ;)

Does things, but not well
Cropped pictures haphazardly. Saved portrait images in landscape. Stretched images awkwardly. Good concept, but it has quite a little ways to go to reach maturity.

LOL @ applemaniac
Please learn how to read the description before you assume (impression) anything. The app is decent for an iPhone.
