    Introducing PhotoAlbums+: From the makers of iRealSMS & PwnTunes

    [Click here for a YouTube Demonstration]

    What is it, and what does it do?

    PhotoAlbums+ is a new tweak for the native Photos application compatible with iOS4 capable iPhones & iPod Touches.

    What it basically does is cut out the tedious iTunes tethered process of creating albums and organizing your photos… No longer do you have to be at your desktop to add or remove albums.. no longer to do you have to export the photos/videos to your pc before you can create and import an album to your device. No longer are you at the mercy of iTunes and forced to settle for a flawed, inconvenient and impractical photo management tool!

    Now with the touch of a button you can create new custom photo albums! Use the native media selection method to choose which photos/videos to MOVE out of the camera roll into your new custom albums... even move items from one custom album to the next. Simply use the ‘move’ option to distribute your photos across your custom albums. If you have ever used the 'move' option in the Mail.app, then you already know how to use PhotoAlbums+. The UI has almost a zero learning curve as it is seamlessly integrated into the Photos application in such a way that you actually will think that this is really the way the Photos app should have been from the very beginning.

    Another exciting feature is the ability to create password protected albums. Simply click on the ‘Lock’ icon within the album creation popup and create a password. Its that easy. No fuss, no muss.

    To delete and album use the swipe method. And upon deletion all the photos contained in the set will be moved back to the Camera Roll. Best of all this doesn't interfere with the iTunes syncing process, and you can backup your photos to your PC with ease. The tweak also is compatible with applications that hook into the photos app, so when choosing to insert pictures via twitter apps or messages apps, your albums will still be organized, password protected and ready for use. So take control over your Camera Roll and get it together with PhotoAlbums+!
    PhotoAlbums+ Manage your iPhone/iPod Photo Albums on device without iTunes - Home

    Create an Album:[Click for Image]
    To create custom albums just press the "plus" button in the upper-right corner of the screen.
    Just name the album, go into the camera roll and begin distributing your pictures and videos into your custom albums!
    Easy to use and beautifully integrated. You'll really wonder how you got along without it all this time.

    Moving your Images and Videos:[Click for Image]
    Moving your pictures and videos between albums is as easy as
    1) select the items you wish to move.
    2) press the MOVE button found along the bottom of the screen.
    3) select the album you wish to move the items into.

    Delete an Album:[Click for Image]
    Easily delete an unwanted album by simply swiping your finger across the album cell. This will produce a DELTET option in which you must press to confirm deletion.
    Note that deleting an album does not delete the contents. The grouping of images and videos are what is purged while the actual pictures and videos are moved back into the Camera Roll.

    Password Protection of an Album:[Click for Image]
    Ever want to keep certain pictures and videos out of the reach of prying eyes?
    Well now you can!
    With PhotoAlbums+ you have the power to password protect your custom albums.
    Its easy, just tap on the LOCK graphic in the upper-right corner of the New Albums popup and a set of password fields will populate the screen. Setup your password, select SAVE and your finished!
    Fast, easy, intuitive.

    Windows Export:[Click for Image]
    PhotoAlbums+ will detect your custom albums and create seperate folders in the Windows File Explorer for increased control and ease over what you choose to export to your desktop.
    Managing your Camera Roll just got easier!
    (note: folder names will appear generic in nature, so you will have to go through the folders to determine what album is which.

    Windows Explorer Album View:[Click for Image][Click for Image]
    Upon entering one of the custom folders you can view the contents on your Album folder within the Windows File Explorer. Drag items directly to your desktop or the entire folder to easily export photos and videos to your Windows PC.
    Managing your Camera Roll just got easier!

    Can anyone comment on what happens when you try to import photos to Aperture? Do they just show up in a single list of photos like normal?

    Hi im planning to get it for my ipad so i could arrange photo which i import from my sd memory card using the camera connection kit. My question is, after i had imported the photos, could i still rename the default folder name (default its the date of the photo taken) and move the photo around to new album?

    This and BiteSMS+LockInfo is why I jailbreak. Such a great app!

    I honestly can't believe Apple did not include this basic functionality in the iPhone 4. How far behind the curve can you get? And they complain about jailbreaking... :confused:

    I would expect this and themes to be next on the OS update list.

    This is the only downside I can see to this app, otherwise looks very interesting! Once I can unlock my i4 and use it regularly I'll be giving this a try.

    There's no way to tell. However, most devs update their apps for free to work with new firmwares and iPhone revisions.

    Cool man. Steal developers work. Please, do me a favour. Go learn how to program, or invent something, or make a movie/album. Then, when it gets stolen or pirated constantly, and you don't make anything from your hard work, please let us know how you feel.

    GTFO my MacRumors.

    I have this problem too. What gives? Says "Package Officially Purchased" and I haven't purchased it yet. When I tap install in the top corner it gives me the same error message as QP. Then it wants a respring without installing anything.

    I seem to recall the author tweeted about this some time ago but that he fixed it, I'd contact him directly

    I have this and like it a lot but had one problem. When I updated my IOS and re-JB my phone it lost all of the albums, the pics were there but in one folder. I started to re do all of the albums but it kinda seems pointless since they will all go away when I update to IOS 4.3

    Any way to save the new albums to the computer?

    It does this after you update it in Cydia, too. I love this tweak, but it's EXTREMELY annoying to have to redo all your photo albums after doing something as simple as an update.

    I really wish the developer would come up with a fix for this issue, if possible. If it's not, then I understand, but it would really be appreciated.
