Photo Manager Pro $3 -> $1

IMHO the best photo viewer app is Photo Manager Pro.

Now it's $1 and is a steal at that price IMHO, particularly if you need to keep thousands of photos on your iDevice.

See the dedicated image viewer roundup at http://www.iphonelife.com/blog/87/al...t-image-viewer if interested, which thoroughly compares it to the other image viewers, incl. the stock Photos.


(Yup, I know it isn't a game. Nevertheless, it's THE best image viewer app; hence I've posted about it.)

Just purchased it. I'm impressed. It's far better than native photos app.

Sorry...I haven't really used my iPad for photos much outside a couple of dozen photos at a time; however I have a family reunion later this summer and might be using the iPad to store significantly more photos than normal.

I read the blog post but I'm still confused...

I do have the CCK and use it to store photos, movies and TV shows for when I'm on the road...will PMP work directly with the CCK like the stock Photo App without creating all the thumbnail images?

Can you bulk select (select all) photos in a particular folder for deletion whereas the Photo App only allows you to select photos one at a time?

iOS - 32Gb iPhone 4, 16Gb iPod Touch (1st Gen), 16Gb iPad (3rd Gen)
Devs - I have access to all gens of iPads (1st, 2nd, 3rd)...hit me up for Beta Testing.

Nope, it can't access them directly, "thanks" to Apple's restrictions. However, if you import the images to Photos first, and, then, from there, to PMP, you can already safely delete the original photos in Photos from the Imported section, they'll remain in PMP. (Then, you can safely answer yes if it asks whether it should delete all occassions.)

Yup (Select All in the top left corner in Edit mode).

How good is the transfer functions on this app? Specifically between iPhone and iPad?

I was going to get Photo Transfer App but its slightly more expensive.

I don't think I will be using the manager part of it. I know Photos is not the best app but I don;t like the thought of managing images in two different places.

1, no local transfer.

2, I mostly recommend the app to them that suffer from the most important problems of the stack Photos: the additional storage use introduced by the thumbnails and the inability to access EXIF / individual mapping data. If you don't belong to this category, then, you may want to stay with Photos.

Sorry, I was wrong about this: there IS p2p transfer between iOS devices. Select an image and tap the P2P transfer icon. The receiver end only needs to start the app (no other functionality needs to be enabled / started).
