SKRWT 1.2 update has officially come out today and there is something new that has been added within the app called MRRW. I got a chance to be part of their beta team to test out MRRW and test the new user interface on SKWRT. I’ll post up a video tutorial about how to use both parts of the app and show you some before and after photos done with both parts of the app.

Normally I’ll show you how the app operates but the video tutorial does a great job of showing how the app operates.
First I want to show you a before and after photo using SKWRT. You can really push your photos to extreme straightening with no real limitations. As you can see in a before and after photo shown up above, that some serious extreme straightening.
I shot this photo in Downtown with an Inmacus 18mm HD Wide-Angle Lens.
Next I straighten the photo out with SKWRT and it looks pretty good.
Then I loaded my straighten photo onto MRRW, this is MRRW 1.
This is MRRW 2.
MRRW is built into SKWRT and cost $.99 to export photos (in-app purchase). You don’t have to straighten the photo before you mirror it. I did tell them in the beta testing they should add a button if you want to SKWRT or MRRW first. In my opinion I feel that MRRW should be a stand alone app. It’s great inside SKWRT but not everyone is into always straightening their photos and would rather start mirroring first. Both SKRWT and MRRW can work hand in hand but doesn’t always work together, depending on what type of photos you’re straightening. I feel you don’t always have to straighten your photo before you mirror it and vice versa. It’s great way to pair the two. But I still feel MRRW should be a stand alone app and not an in-app purchase. SKWRT update overall is better than when I first got the app. I feel when I edit my photos with SKWRT (update 1.2). They don’t make me feel like I’m looking at the Leaning Tower of Pisa. They actually look straight. This has come to the closest thing to a desktop software program. Overall the whole update has left me with mixed feelings but for people who love precision and super straight looking photos. You might think this was a great update.
