Updates to 645 Pro Mk III, PureShot and Darkroom (Updated)
By Graham K. Rogers
As before, a user can use a filter-like slider to apply different levels of R, G, B adjustments to images, or apply fine-tuning with the specific sliders. These are now Intensity, Neutrals, Tone and Grain. Despite requests from users, features that appear in the OS X version of Photos, such as Sharpen and White Balance are still unavailable.

Other changes include the method by which some sort photos: there is now the option to sort by Date Added, as well as Date Created. A couple of bugs were also put right: a data corruption problem that caused the app to crash (I had not experienced this); and a problem with sharing on older devices like the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5.
645 Pro Mk III, PureShot and Darkroom have been in my collection for a while and I keep them, along with a dozen other photo and editing apps (such as Distressed FX, Enlight and Waterlogue) in folders on the home screen of my iPhone for easy access.
UpdateOn Tuesday morning here, another update to Darkroom arrived. It reports that this fixes crashes that the previous update (above) had brought about. I had not experienced this at all. However, the 2.2 update has now (hopefully) fixed that problem, the developer writes.
