Review on Photo Gallery applications for the iPad
Updated August 14, 2011
I have been trying several of the iPad applications that store my pictures.
I’ve made this review on some of the tested ones.
It’s important for me to be able to make subfolders, and to move and copy my pictures.
Even more important is the possibility to import and export pictures using FTP. By using FTP, all I have to do is enter the IP-address given by the application to Explorer on any PC, and I can easily transfer my pictures, without passing iTunes. This makes my workflow a lot easier, and I don’t have to store my pictures in a folder for iTunes to synchronize all the time.
I’ve added MY priority, that is those features that I need for my workflow, ranking 1 as top.

Please let me know if you are using other applications, that you feel can compare with Photo-Sort or Photo Manager Pro.
1 ”Photos” is the standard picture application on the iPad
2 “Using a projector” means that you can add a projector or external screen, by using the Apple Composite AV-cable
3 EXIF-data 1 is Aperature, Shutterspeed, ISO, Focal length.
4 Uses the folders in the standardapplication: Photos
5 As Private password but gives access to other folders

7 In iTunes. Go to your iPad -> Programs > FileSharing and import the pictures
8 Sort Shots creates ”folders” base don the tags you have given the pictures. All the pictures are stored in the same folder.
9 You must buy an Apple ”Mobile Me” account to use this app. Price Dkr. 619,- per year.
