Cropping tools

Darkroom's cropping tools let you select from several standard aspect ratios, but you also can drag the corners by hand.  It also lets you level the image.

In-app purchase

To get Curves, you'll need to pay $2.99 through in app purchase. But $2.99 is a good price for an app with all these features.
