The iPhone app was one of the free apps in the 12 Days of Christmas in the app store (in the UK at least), I must admit that I downloaded and then forgot about it, but having taken a look at it now it is pretty good for tweaking photos, I can see the desktop version providing the same quick and simple improvements to photos.
