    I have images of two bus timetables that I need to access daily.
    I do this simply by scrolling to them in my camera roll, which means that I need to either retake the pictures every few weeks or hunt them down among my hundreds of pictures that I have taken (and would prefer to keep on the device).

    I wonder if there is a less convoluted solution? Perhaps there somehow exists the option to link to an image from a homescreen icon or a hyper-simple app that will display a single image and nothing more?

    If anyone has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks a lot,

    Make a folder. Name it

    Bus Sched

    Put the pictures there.



    I mean. Why don't you organize your pictures?


    I don't get why you are scrolling through an endless list in the camera roll. That's just a temporary folder until you organize. My camera roll has 2 pictures in there I took yesterday. All the other ones are organized.

    From your computer, you could upload an image to a service like imageshack.

    Access the direct image link from your phone on Safari, then add that link as favorite on your homescreen.

    I mean, he doesn't need any apps to organize.

    Seems he has all his pictures in the camera roll.

    Plug in your iphone to your computer.

    Go to My Computer, click on your iPhone, Cut and Paste all those pictures into a folder (where ever you keep your pictures in your computer). Then organize that mess.

    Go into iTunes. Click on your iPhone. Go to Photos. Browse to the folder you want to sync with and hit apply. All your pictures will sync with your computer.

    From then on, once in a while, cut the pictures out of your camera roll and keep organizing into the same folder. Sync again. Now the new pics will be in the folder you made for them. And so on.

    You need to do some organizing on your phone.

    That's just eating up his monthly internet.

    He just needs to organize. that's all.
