Amazingly, we haven't featured Fhotoroom here for two years, which is why a flush of updates in the last few months has warranted another mention here, with a summarised changelog of everything that's been added since early 2014.

The social/community side of Fhotoroom is front and centre at all times...


Playing around with one of the surprisingly advanced photo processing functions....

Very comprehensive in terms of image editing, though the interface is still heavily skewed to 'social', very Instagrammish... Note that you need to create a 'fhotoroom' account before you can share anything. The demographic, judging from the shared content in the Fhotoroom community, seems to major on sub-30 females, but of course the system is open to anyone.

You can download Fhotoroom for free here in the Windows Phone Store. There are ads, but any in-app-purchase removes these - forever.

From a personal standpoint, I just can't get on with Fhotoroom's interface and workflow - but it might just be me. Any comments welcome!
