But the coolest feature is that you can open a picture previously taken with the 5800 and then edit is as you want, you know, maybe add a mustache to a friend or scrars etc… This app is lots of fun, and with the stylus the 5800 brings it is even better.

An awesome application that enables a feature that was impossible to have on S60 3rd Ed devices. With this application you can use the Flash of your Nokia 5800 as a Flashlight, extremely useful in the dark, or when camping or entering late in the cinema.
