Worked well!

It's very quick and smooth app. It helped me to manage lots of pictures in my iPhone, SLR and external HD. I strongly recomend this app to someone who takes lots of pictures like me!!

Supposedly you get 100 free imports, then pay if you like it. It doesn’t even work for the first one on my MacBook.

Great app, but sneaky purchase requirement

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.
