Clean up your photo library by removing duplicates and extra photos. Choose your best photos once, and delete the rest.

We take and manage more photos than ever before with our iPhones and iPads, which requires a new type of app to sift through the avalanche of images. Best Photos helps you quickly choose your best photos once, and delete the rest. Otherwise, when you want to share a photo, you're left repeating the internal debate between multiple versions of the same picture.

Always with you
On your iPhone or iPad, Best Photos gives you the power to sort through thousands of photos before you even get home. It's a great way to use the pockets of time that surround an event or vacation. Going through photos will be fun, and in the moment, instead of a chore for later.

Some of the key features included for FREE:
- Delete and hide many photos at once
- Quickly jump to recent photos, specific years, or albums
- 3D Touch quick actions from the app icon
- Add to Album: add your photos or videos to new or existing albums
- Simple photo editing and cropping for quick fixes

“The Best Features” premium upgrade:
- Compare Mode: view photos side by side with fancy, synchronized zooming
- Find and remove duplicate photos
- Consecutives: Focus on clumps of similar photos taken together
- Accidental Videos: find those videos where you probably meant to take a photo
- View Photo Info: inspect EXIF and other metadata properties on photos and videos
- All Problem Areas: Quickly focus on areas of your library that need special attention, like photos missing location, or the HDR and Portrait Mode photos that also store the normal version
- App dark mode and custom app icons

What's New

Version 1.5

New Feature:
Are videos or screenshots slowing you down from going through your photos? Now you can easily ignore them. Simply flip a switch in settings, and you won’t see videos, and or screenshots in BestPhotos.

The Privacy Update:
I am deleting my app email newsletter list, and removing all third party analytics, crash reporting, and ads from BestPhotos. This way I can respect your privacy even more, and simplify my development at the same time.

Bug Fixes:
I’m always trying to make this app better. As cheesy as that sounds, it’s good for you!

It’s really good


Here’s two important refinements that would really make it useful:

1. iCloud photos are slow. This makes tabbing through photos really slow, and I lose patience. I know that this isn’t your fault. Could you allow the user to select a range of photos to compare, show a progress bar to get them all, then I could come back and quickly find the ones that I want.

2. iCloud movies are really slow. Add a setting option to just ignore them! I found that sometimes I was waiting a long time, and then I realized that I was waiting to download a movie. There’s no easy way to see that until it’s fully downloaded. Just hide them.

Side-by-side is the killer feature


There are plenty of ‘duplicate finders’ on the App Store, but Best Photo rises above them. BP allows me to systematically review my photos to see which one looks the best with its side-by-side feature. You can simultaneously zoom in on 2 photos to identify which photo has better focus. It’s far better than swiping back and forth/zooming in. I love this app. Great job guys.

Nice way of managing photos

David Levine

I decided to try the app after Casey Liss tweeted about it. It's a nicely designed app and easy to use. What's included for free and what requires an in-app purchase is made very clear. The only thing that I find strange is that you can't view meta data without going premium. You can do this in the Apple Photos app, so why not this one? I'm guessing it's because the developer couldn't find an elegant way to allow the viewing of meta data, but not changing it, because editing meta data requires the premium purchase, which makes sense.

Overall, I think it's a good app. The compare feature looks like a stellar feature, which is what would prompt me to go premium.
