iPhoto for iOS arrives on the App Store

Apple's mobile suite of iLife apps is now complete. On Wednesday, the company rolled out iPhoto for iOS, which joins mobile versions of GarageBand and iMovie in the App Store.

The $5 app arrives on the App Store Wednesday. While Apple executives demonstrated the mobile image editor to show off the improved display on the latest iPad, iPhoto is a universal iOS app--like GarageBand and iMovie, it will run on the iPhone and iPod touch as well as Apple's tablet.

During Wednesday's press event, Apple senior vice president of worldwide product marketing Phil Schiller pitched iPhoto as the next step after the Camera and Photos apps that come included with the iPad. While those offerings let you capture and view photos, respectively, the mobile version of iPhoto offers more browsing and editing capabilities.

Specifically, iPhoto for iOS promises multi-touch image editing, effects that can be applied with brushes, and sharing capabilities. A Photo Beaming feature will allow iPhoto users to send high-resolution photos between devices, while Photo Journals provides another avenue for sharing images with friends.

In addition to releasing iPhoto for iPad, Apple also updated GarageBand and iMovie for iOS on Wednesday.

We'll update this article with a more detailed look at iPhoto's features later today.
