This thread is for commenting on this announcement. Please do not post bugs or problems that you find when using this version of the software in this thread, instead make a new thread in the Photo Bugs on iPad section and questions about usage go in the iPad Questions forum.

UPDATING TO THIS VERSION (Free for existing customers)

For updates from the iPad Store are done automatically (next time you run after it is available in the store). You need to be logged in as the same user who bought the application. Open iPad store, go to Updates. Once you're there, from the top bar choose Store and on the drop-down click Refresh. It worked for me - both updates appeared instantly. If they don't, there's no point asking us we cannot make it appear quicker. Apple sometimes phase roll outs around the world sometimes taking up to 24 hours.
