    I spend quite a bit of time tagging my photos making sure they have the right camera, people tagged, photographer, etc. etc.

    Is there a way to view more than just by album and by places? If not, this would be a welcome addition. For all the cool things Apple products offer, I'm amazed at the lack of what I would think would be totally standard features. I'm not sure if/how many other phones can do this, but it seems like it would be an incredibly easy feature to implement.

    Sure, you can view by 'Faces'--option available at the bottom of the screen in the photos app on iPhone or top of the screen on iPad.

    I don't see 'faces' on my iPhone (iPhone 4). Just albums and places.

    You have to tag the faces using either iPhoto or Aperture on a Mac.

    If you do that, and then sync the photos from there to your phone, you'll see the 'Faces' button on the phone.

    wow, i hate apple for this kind of crap. not sure if this is the last straw, but them forcing me to do use itunes to sync my phone is bad enough. forcing me to use other mac products and their proprietary tagging system to be able to get full functionality on my phone is downright asinine.

    I'm not aware of a "non-proprietary face-tagging" system. This is kind of one of those strange fringe features.

    It's not like HTML or e-mail where there's some big standard out there that Apple is ignoring. Everyone pretty much has to make up their own thing for stuff like this. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't even think Lightroom DOES face tagging. So they're not just ignoring Adobe for no reason.

    Well how did you tag them? What program do you use?

    It's actually iPhoto, not iTunes. iTunes just syncs them to the phone.
