Pictureslab v5 now available: Now on limited special offer $0.99!

We reported exclusively on Tuesday on the upcoming update to Pictureslab to bring it to version 5.0, at the time it was still in beta. Good news today is that the Windows Phone Store has caught up and the latest version is available to all.

The good news doesn’t stop there as the app is of course available for existing users to update to for free but new users can now grab it for the special offer price of only US $0.99. Read on past the break to find out more.

For those not familiar with Pictures Lab, the app is designed to allow for quick, on the go editing of your snaps. Many difference effects can be applied to the image; there are 30 pre-set effects which you can simply swipe through along with the ability to add borders. If you’re looking for a solid photo manipulation app then you should check out this one.

Here is a list of the changes for version 5.0

  • Update to Windows Phone 8 with much improved performance and support for all 3 screen resolutions.
  • Lens, Rich Media (post edit) and Edit Pictures Hub integration.
  • Support for huge images and also low memory devices.
  • New Winter border / frame.
  • Many UI improvements.
  • Countless bug fixes and tweaks.
  • Fixed translation issues.

We’re pleased to see the update hit the Windows Phone Store so rapidly and think that Pictureslab is a steal at this special offer price. We have been using it for a few days in beta form and are more than happy with it. It’s a solid photo editing app that should be more than capable of meeting most needs on the go.

As with a number of Windows Phone apps you can try before you buy but don’t deliberate too long and miss out on the new $0.99 price point as it normally costs $2.99. Grab the app from the Windows Phone Store here
