QuickFlip 2.0 Review

Flip and rotate images in your library with this easy-to-use app.

Image editing and manipulation theoretically should be easy on an iPad. The touch-screen interface, maneuverability of the device, and power under the hood make an iPad perfect for most basic image editing functions. There are some apps, however, that provide a limiting experience and QuickFlip is one of them. Touted as a quick tool for one function -- flipping and rotating images -- there isn't much reason to download QuickFlip if you already have any of the dozens of other image editors on the market that already perform these functions.

When you open QuickFlip, you will be prompted to select an image from your photo library. You can then swipe your finger up, down, left, or right to flip the image in either direction -- horizontally or vertically. There is a rotate button on the bottom, as well that allows you to rotate clockwise or counterclockwise. The issue with this interface is not that it doesn't work, but that it is so limiting. Having a single app for image flipping is unnecessary when there are so many tools that also do this and are free. That aside, the interface is rudimentary, ad supported, and does not fully use the iPad's ample space.

If you want to flip images horizontally or vertically on your iPad, there are many apps that will do that and much more. The basic function promised by QuickFlip works well and saving to the photo library is easy; but without other functions to recommend it, we see no reason to download this app unless you are flipping images on a constant basis.
