do you guys know any cydia apps that give you better management of your photos on your iphone. pref ios5.

example: i would like to not just have one folder 'camera roll'...would like to have different folders, and save the pics taken in the pref folder.

thanks.

Only got it today, can add my pictures to different albums (move them, not just copy like I think ios5 does. Can also add some albums to be password protected which is nice, instead of just locking down the whole Photo app. No problems so far but only just got it

I'll second PhotoAlbums +

I've been using it since ios 4 and it works great. You can actually move the photos from the camera roll to an album instead of just adding them to an album like ios 5. You can password protect private albums also. Really missed this app between jailbreaks.

Open your photos app, hit edit in the upper right, then add on the left to create a new folder. Hit the little lock on the pop up if you want to add a password to the new folder. Then you can start moving photos from the camera roll to new folder.

I was always hesitant with this one. I usually organize my photos in iPhoto, but sometimes I get lazy. Does it work well with iPhoto?

i dont like it..waste of $5

ios5 does all this already. and the making of a password protected folder does not work.


So what's up?
Why is this thread dead?
Did you find an app that works good cause I'm looking to do the same exact thing as you.
Organize my camera roll so everything isn't in just 1 folder.

I use photo organizer. It's free and moves photos from camera roll to a new/existing album but it doesn't have a password protect album feature
