I like the approach and UI, but it’s pics for which photos to keep are not great, it is not consistent with its evaluation of similar photos, and it does not delete every photo you select to delete. Better than noting and it’s a fair option on mobile, but Photo Sweeper is much better if you have a Mac. I won’t be purchasing this app at this time.
Great app for cleaning up unnecessary duplicates
Simple to use and does a great job categorizing the photos. Makes it easy to figure out what to keep and delete.
Like it's Mac is counterpart. Great utility!
So far the only good thing I have to say is I love the layout. However, I haven’t even been able to use the apps functions. I assume this is because I have 80,000 photos but this app will not load or function in any capacity. I saw someone mention that it takes them forever to load every time they start up the app but I haven’t even been able to get it to load once. I made the mistake of paying thinking that it wasn’t loading due to features being locked(yes, I know that doesn’t make much sense but I was tired and just wanted to sort photos and delete duplicates) so I’m a little upset that I payed for something that I can’t use. Hopefully the dev team responds to this and fixes the loading issue at some point in the future. I’m not sure why the app can’t just connect to the photos app and use that as a cache like google photos does.
For some reason my phone heats up like crazy and crashes every 2 minutes only for this app. I’ve been trying to sort through my 7000 screenshots the last 3 days but the further I scroll down the hotter my phone gets, and within about 2 minutes of manually selecting the screenshots I want to keep, it crashes. It also crashes during delete jobs of more than 20 photos at a time.
Even if you pay for this crappy app, it misses hundreds of dublicates, doesn't give you any updates regarding its progress while scanning, and UI looks like it was built by a 12 year old.
13 Oct 2020 While the premise of this appis to eliminate and manage photos more easily, it has the following issues: 1. There are no controls over how photos are detected as duplicates. The app flags possible duplicates that while similar, are actually not duplicates at all. One needs to be able to control the method of comparison even down to the byte level to ensure there are duplicates. Example: this app will flag two photos as duplicates even when there is a copyright signature on one and other the other which could lead to accidental deletion. 2. The biggest aggravation is that the application does not flag what folder, album, or shared album dups are found in which makes it difficult to determine which if any photo should be deleted. I find that the Mac OS X version of this program is more useful than the iPadOS version.
Seriously. EVERYONE needs this app!!! It’s so handy and fast when going thru thousands of pics in your photo album. Shows you groups of similar pics so cleaning up extras is a breeze. Highly recommend!!!!
