PictureShow has been my go-to photo editor to get that popular low-fi look that seems to be spreading around the Web. New additions to the camera function in version 3.0 are 5 new lenses including a cool multiexposure look, a rule-of-thirds grid, and a 10-second timer function.

PictureShow has also added 11 new styles to their already impressive array of filters. Calm, Vintage Red, Light Lime, Old Gray, and Blue Print are just a few. You can add to the stylistic looks by including the new Tilt Shift effect, which allows you to control the depth and intensity of the blur.

You can now share photos on Tumblr blogs, and you can transform your photos by cropping with preselected ratios or a freeform box. Once you've got all your adjustments made, PictureShow 3.0 allows you to save them into a Recipe so you can quickly add the exact same effects to another photo.

Combined with all the new effects, the new camera functions, the Tilt Shift and HDR adjustments, an updated UI, and plenty of sharing options, PictureShow 3.0 is a great upgrade to an already nice photography app for iPhone. For $1.99, I'd recommend it to anyone looking to get unique, lo-fi looks to their photographs on the go.
