What's New

Version 1.4.1

• Fixed: On macOS High Sierra 10.13, scrolling in the thumbnails view could sometimes be slow and stuttery when RAW images were present.
• Fixed: The preference to reduce transparency in the main window would not take effect until the app was restarted. This bug was introduced in the recent 1.4 update.

Ratings and Reviews

Great app, but sneaky purchase requirement

Andy Ata

This app solves a big challenge I have had trying to sort photos in Finder. I can’t stand Apple’s Photos app and have tried to maintain control over how I file and sort my photos. This app, at first glance, seems to do that very well. I love the seamless interface and tile format. I love the ability to resize the tiles at will and delete right from the interface. The app is simple - doesnt try to do too much, but seems to work very well. The app itself does what it advertises.

Now, the downside………… The app is listed in the app store as “free”, but that only gets you 100 imports or deletions. That will get used up in about 30 minutes if you are sorting or importing a lot of photos, like me. To spring the user with a $40 purchase price to me is outrageous. When the app states “offers in app purchases” I would have thought there are some upgrades or features that might make it even better, but to lure people in, then tell them in order to keep using the app, you have to shell out $40, to me is a deal killer. Either drastically lower the price, or make this truly “free”. Otherwise, it goes in my wastebasket.

Adjust the price or be honest up front and the app itself will get a much better rating.

Very good


Very fast and easy to use. Its features are limited so it probably can't be everything to everybody which is maybe why folks have given it 1-3 stars. But for me it's great, fast and easy to browse a day's take and import the keepers. I do agree with the other reviewer who said it has potential. It's still at version 1 so I'm excited to see what new features will be added in the future.

Great Start and it’s free to try


The app does exactly what it says. It has a fremium model where you get to import 100 pics for free and then you have to pay to import the rest of your pics.
If they will enhance it to allow us to use the Photos App extensions, we can actually edit the pics using other editors, which would be really nice. Good start on this.
