The feature-rich photo-editing app Handy Photo has just been updated to version 2.0 with a redesigned interface and a number of new features.

Of course, the redesigned interface introduced in Handy Photo 2.0 is inspired by none other than iOS 7, with its flat glyphs and translucent effects.

On top of its new look and feel, Handy Photo 2.0 boasts a new ability to selectively adjust tone and color using linear gradient mask (with color-picking feature), elliptical gradient mask (with edge-aware application), and masking brush modes (with solid and edge-aware brushes).
