Avid Studio ($4.99) has just hit the App Store, and it’s SWEET.

With the release of Movie★Slate 3, one of our favorite apps has received some nifty new features, and a host of refinements. While the cost of this universal app has increased slightly to $24.99, the upgrade is free for existing users.
