This app is a unique photo browser for the iPad with color sorting and a 3D interface not seen before! It can show many more photos at a glance than the default Photos app and uses an intuitive interaction and is significantly faster than a common 2D grid as confirmed by scientific studies.

Manage your photos with a spellbinding and efficient picture browser that uses a 3D interface to show many more images at a glance than the common list view! Due to the color sorting feature, which groups together visually similar images, you get your pics organized and will find desired images much faster than with the default photo browsing app as scientific user studies have shown!

This app provides an innovative 3D arrangement and content-based color sorting, like no other app! Now with even better visuals (e.g., reflection and anti-aliasing) and cool new features (e.g., share current view via Facebook, Twitter, or Email or open picture in external app)!

Try the free version (3D Photo Ring Lite) first!

• Photos in the rings of one page can be sorted by color or recording time

Ratings and Reviews

Neat looking gimmick – could be powerful.


I was really excited to purchase this app but icons are too small to do anything with them and ring mode except for to look cool.
Other than that, zero organizing functions. Even when you delete a picture it reshuffles and resets all the rings leaving you lost in an abyss of rings to find your place again.

Suggest multiple selections for delete. Settings and customization do not stick even stick. And no, my iPad Pro isn't limited on memory. So many little tweaks could not only make this app brilliant, but a powerful tool for editors and artists that need to manage many photos at once.

Going to suggest owner to contact me for recommendations.

Plain FUN


Great way to view photos
Very well done, great buy

Love It - But Can't Use It


Great app, except for one thing: can't mirror to AppleTV.

I need an app with ability to present photos, at random from a very large portfolio, in conversation with customers.

Imagine spontaneous conversations at a trade show booth. Say I'm a homebuilder and have photos from 100 homes, and someone approaches me with specific questions about kitchens. This app would be perfect to zoom through and point out photos... except it does not link to AppleTV, so use for presentation is extremely limited.

The app also needs a kiosk mode, so that it could be used unattended by anyone to browse photos without the ability to exit the app and access other apps and content on the iPad.

Users should have the ability to segregate pictures, so that only a subset of photos on the iPad are available in a given context. In the same example above, use in a trade show booth, multiple albums of architectural pictures, but excluding albums containing personal and family pictures.
