iPad Screenshots


PhotoPhile helps you to sort, find and manage your iPad's photo collection. Add star-ratings, labels and comments to your photos, and then use these later to find exactly the photos you're interested in.

If you're a Lightroom user, you can publish your photos directly to your iPad from Lightroom complete with their Lightroom ratings, flags, keywords and comments and, once there, use all the normal sorting and filtering controls to make it easier to find the photo you want.

You can also use your iPad to edit the metadata directly and sync this back to Lightroom. Pro photographers, get your clients to apply their own star-ratings to their photo-shoot. Not so pro? Sit somewhere comfy while you rate, flag and tag your own photos.

PhotoPhile uses internal RAW photo decoding for most camera types and is extremely fast. The custom decoding allows it to show very large photos even on older iPads. Do you want to zoom right in to a 50 Megapixel photo? PhotoPhile can do it!

Upload photos directly to your iPad using a tethered Eye-Fi Mobi or Eye-Fi ProX2 card, with instant previews and automatic geolocation. Fully automatic setup of Eye-Fi Pro cards, no fiddling around with XML files on your PC to extract arcane codes! Both JPEG and RAW photos can be used, depending on which type your Eye-Fi card can send.

Automatically or manually send photos to FTP sites, Flickr, Dropbox or Google Drive, Twitter, Facebook and Microsoft OneDrive.

Display your geotagged photos on an interactive map, and add geolocation data either by hand or using a GPX file, complete with address lookup.

Ratings and Reviews

Very questionable support


I purchased this software, followed all the instructions and could not get it to connect to light room, without which the software has no use for me.

After reading all the instructions again I checked for online documentation and FAQs and found very little. Finally I lodged a detailed support ticket explaining the problem and the steps I'd taken attempting to resolve it.

I received an automated response immediately advising that I would be contacted in due course. 2 days later I received another email stating that as they hadn't heard back from me they would close my ticket in 48 hours if I did not respond.

The email included a link which I followed to a page requesting my email address and password. I didn't have a password so followed the "forgot your password" link, received an email that let me to "reset my password". Once I logged on with my new password I was required to set up a profile for "new account". It was only after all of these steps that I was able to view my ticket.

Once I finally got to the ticket I found a message telling me that I had insufficient credit to ask any questions so no response would be provided.

I have chosen not to purchase the required credit and have left this review so you are aware of the experience that awaits you if you choose to purchase this software and you need help.
