In the Phocus 3.5 update you get: 

Defringe Tool 
The new Defringe Tool enables easy removal of purple or green fringes that may occur in situations such as high contrast transitions. Pick the area to obtain an automatic setting of amount and range and manually adjust from there if needed. Note that this tool is also available in adjustment layers. 
Enhanced contrast and brightness adjustments 
The new version 3 Exposure Tool adds enhanced algorithms for handling tonal adjustments to contrast and brightness. With increased control of luminosity without producing negative effects on colour rendering, this enables more detailed adjustments. 
Luma Mode added to Curves Tool 
Luma Mode has been added to the Curves Tool, providing the option to control luminosity with less impact on colour rendition than the simple RGB curve provides. 
Upgraded processing performance 
Increased GPU (graphics processing unit) usage leads to better performance of exports and high-resolution viewer rendering. Please note that this requires the Extended GPU usage option to be active. Further improvements have been implemented when batch exporting Multi-Shot images in 4 and 6 shot modes.

With Phocus Mobile 2, users can import, edit and rate RAW images and import and rate full quality JPEG images directly on their device*. In addition, Phocus Mobile 2 supports full quality image export, tethered shooting and direct camera control.
