    Got a message that iPhoto is no longer compatible with iOS 8. I guess apple feels that the new photos app makes up for the editing features in iPhoto.

    I get that message as well. I'm not sure if they are going to drop iPhoto or Rename and rerelease when ios 8 goes live.

    iPhoto has been replaced by the built in photo app.

    They may well release an update to iPhoto when iOS 8 launches next week. Photos isn't due out til later I believe.

    I bloody home so! I'm sure as hell not abandoning iPhoto if photos can't do journals and all the editing that iPhoto can do.

    I love iPhoto it does the job on my iPad 3, and i would hate for it to be completely killed off and not compatible with iOS8. But since the announcement of the photos App at the iOS8 announcement back in June, i don't see iPhoto being supported by Apple.

    But I would hope this would not be the case though. :) Photo journals is my favourite part of iPhoto :p

    I was just searching for info on this also, a number of places are saying iphoto is going to be dropped. That sucks.

    They replaced iPhoto with a dumbed down version in the Photos app.

    Yea, I don't like it. That's why I installed iphoto and got the migration notice.

    Anyone have any problems migrating photos from iPhoto? My process started then crashed and now every time (even after reboot) when I start Photo it shows then pops up a migrating photos message that instantly crashes the app. I can no longer access photos.

    Does anyone know if we will get a refund if we purchased Iphoto?

    I purchased an Apple created app that Apple, for no reason other than to assert it's dominance on its users, removed, sorry if I think I should get a refund, then again I am not a blindly devoted apple fanboy like some people....

    Should users of the iPhone 4 get a refund because ios8 won't work on their device? Same difference..

    Its exactly the same, as technology advances, so does the ability to use older products

    Just a note for those who watch their storage closely: even though iPhoto is unusable in ios8, it does not automatically get deleted. I deleted the app and regained back like 300+ mb.

    Claiming that technology has moved on and the camera app is suppose to replace iPhoto is a terrible excuse. Your options of controlling things like white balance, warm/cools, greens, and saturation has been replaced by a generic colors slider. This is a step backwards.

    There is no reason iPhoto couldn't work in iOS 8. Nothing but a power play here.

    So find another app. There are plenty of photo editing apps in the App Store if you need something more advanced than the built-in Photos app.

    The iPhoto app on iPhone is/was clumsy, unintuitive, and very decidedly "un-Apple".

    No it wasn't clumsy at least not on the iPad. The new solution is what is clumsy. Can you find me an App that will open my photo journals, projects, tags and everything I have been working on for the last 2.5 years in iPhoto? . People who think iPhoto is clumsy thats fine, go use the under featured Photos APP. People who actually want to get work done should be able to continue using iPhoto.

    I paid money for iPhoto and should be able to continue using it.

    This is purely Apple sticking the middle finger up at loyal customers/prosumers.

    Anyone with a suggestion of something else to use that would offer a rendition of brushes? I think that's why people liked it. Filters and adjustments are nothing unique.

    iPhoto had way more options than the photo app does in iOS8. Yet ANOTHER application that I paid good money for, that Apple have dropped because they've forced (and they do) an iOS update on me.

    Give me back my money you utter thieves!
