Darkroom, a popular camera app designed for iOS devices, has been updated with new features that enable users to manage albums within the app, rather than in the Photos app.

Once the update is installed, users no longer have to exit the app to manage their photo collection – they can create and edit albums from within the Darkroom interface, and the changes they make will be reflected in their device's native photo library.
Today's update adds complete Album Management workflows to Darkroom. From the library, you can now create, rename, and delete albums. You can also select photos and add them to an album. All changes are reflected in your photo library and vice versa.
When browsing albums, the Batch tool can be used to select multiple photos. Doing so reveals a row of actions at the bottom of the screen, and new to that list is "Add To." Users can tap this option to move the selected photos to any existing album or create a new one.

For more information on the update and suggested album workflows, check out this Medium post by the Darkroom development team. Darkroom is available to download from the App Store for iPhone and iPad. [Direct Link]

The app swapped to a subscription-based business model for new users back in February and recently renamed that subscription service to Darkroom+. Darkroom+ provides access to video editing and all of Darkroom's filters and editing tools, and costs $3.99 per month, $19.99 per year, or a one-time fee of $49.99.

I like the ability to create/open/modify existing Apple photo libraries. Except for the subscription model (which is why I went away from Adobe), everything looks great!

Gee. Pretty soon the transition of every app having it's own way of storing everything will be complete and we'll be right back in the 1970's.
Cool, I’m really looking forward to being able to save pictures as a uuencoded ASCII text stream on decks of punched cards.

There's a guy that keeps connecting things like floppy drives to iPhones just to see if it can be done. He did something, maybe just a reader?, with punched cards. It would be interesting to see how many cards a "modern" program would take. Probably a small forest-worth. :)

Maybe I misunderstood your comment, but it sounds like it still syncs every change with your iCloud photo library :) To me this is a welcomed change because before I had to jump between the Photos app and Darkroom every time I had to make changes to an album.

I'd just like an app to replace the photos app where I can categorize when I want and remove those from the camera roll and keep the other random stuff in the camera roll. Or better yet... Apple to just do this.

The photo upload experience is lacking any unification across iOS apps.

A: List photos in chronological order of dated added to photo library.

B: List photos in chronological order of dated created initially.

C: Group exported edits after the original photo chronologically.
