The app features 23 completely adjustable professional grade image processing filters, including Film Treatment, Split Tone, Spot Focus, Tilt-Shift, Diffusion, Light Leaks, Film Grain, and many others. There are 50 classy frames; everything from retro film styles to sloppy borders to wood grain.

What's New in Version 2.0:
* New Filters
* Customizable Randomizer
* Fresh New User Interface
* Many Filter Enhancements
New filters include Diffusion, which is an awesome way to add magic to a photo, Split Toning to create duotone images, a Hues filter to control each range of the color spectrum, a Black & White filter to control the strength of each color range in the grayscale image, Film Grain for realistic film texture, and Text to add comments, copyrights, or watermarks. Users can now custom tune the randomizer to create styles the way they like and they also have the option to turn off specific filters during randomizing.
Jazz's user interface has been completely redesigned for iOS7. The simple, powerful, and intuitive interface features visual controls for choosing Borders, Plastic & Glass, Lens Flares, Light Leaks, and Dirt & Grunge types. There are options for Hi-res previews for retina displays, Toolbar placement, 9 or 4 previews and enhanced support for landscape orientation on iPad, save camera original photo, and save GPS metadata. Other features include Tutorial screens, Send to Flickr, Send to Tumblr, and Send to other services.
Filter Enhancements include separate Spot Focus and Tilt Shift filters, Lens Flare filter automatically adjusts to brightest spot in image, Tones filter now uses 4 band control, and enhanced Load Presets view. There are more borders, more plastic & glass, more dirt and grunge, and more Film Treatment types (Ektachrome, Kodachrome, Polaroid, Day for Night, Infrared). Film Treatment amount now goes to 200%. Apart from much better looking blurs in Spot Focus and Tilt Shift filters, Sharpen, Spot Focus and Tilt Shift are way faster.
