    I am about to purchase PhotoAlbums+ and was wondering if it is possible to manually create new photo albums /folders via SSH or iFile.

    I am aware that you can do this via iTunes and sync the photos but the photo's end up so-called 'optimized' and compressed. I have a great app called 'Photo Transfer App' that does not compress the photo's but this only works with the Camera Roll.

    EDIT: Just read a few negative reviews about PhotoAlbums+ over at BigBoss with it bootlooping /getting stuck at Apple logo etc and developer not responding to emails etc - not good :(

    I'm surprised to hear this - don't think I've ever read testimonials to that effect here on MR. I've been running it since it came out and love it bjut am afraid I can't answer your initial question, I just create and move pics between sub-albums via the app

    Edit: Stephen Fry is a cool dude so no dear MR, i don't mind my new title =)

    Thanks for your comments. I am really interested in PhotoAlbums+ but those reviews over at BigBoss do concern me. It is $5 but if it does what it states then its definitely worth it.

    WhatAmI /iisforiphone : What firmware /iPhone do you have?

    EDIT: WhatAmI - Just read your signature :)

    Wow they increased the price significantly. I think I paid $1.99 for it.

    Can you post a link to the bad reviews? I have not had any issues with it. I only wish it created permanent folders though (if you restore all images will be put back in camera roll).

    Never had a problem with it. Always one of the first tweaks along with bite lockinfo and sbsettings that I install after a fresh update and jailbreak.

    I really want this app as I want to easily create folders and organize all of my photos, wallpapers etc without having iTunes compress them.

    Here are the bad reviews..

    They start at Response no. 6 onwards:

    Also check out the official support forums:

    Its appears that many posts go unanswered:

    I'm really surprised by this. I have had iRealSMS from the beginning and have always got great support from Reznor/them.

    There are +5 recommendations on this thread alone so I think that I am going to give it a shot.

    I have it 4.2.1 no issues or problems. Only thing that would make it better if you could delete photos in any album.

    Thanks labman. I thought that you can delete any file in any album that was created with PhotoAlbums+ ? However you cannot edit anything outside of the camera roll (iTunes synced folders) - Correct?

    The only other drawback I can see is that once you create a folder you cannot rename it or password protect it at a later stage.

    Thanks all for your input. Just purchased /installed and manually saved my shsh blobs just in case - Very nice app :)

    It also works perfect with 'Photo Transfer App' when copying photos from PC - Camera Roll and vice versa.
