Adobe Photoshop Express: the UI's as straightforward is it could be

Photoshop Express is by no means the most sophisticated photo-editing app available, but the basic version is free and is very quick and easy to use.

If you’re using an iPhone, you can shoot photos within the app itself and then go straight into editing mode. Oddly, though, Adobe seems to have overlooked the cameras in the iPad 2, so you still have to shoot photos using Apple’s Camera app and then import them into Photoshop Express for editing.

The editing tools provided are straightforward, and include options such as crop, rotate and straighten, and basic controls for exposure, saturation and contrast.
