Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


PhotoScope lets you browse your whole Aperture or iPhoto library from your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch over WiFi.

Just download the PhotoScope Helper from and run it on your Mac with your photo library in Aperture 3.2 or later or iPhoto '11 or later.

When you open PhotoScope any computers sharing photo libraries on your WiFi network will appear automatically.

NOTE: It is advisable to download and run the free PhotoScope Helper *BEFORE* buying this app


PhotoScope Features:

BROWSE your Aperture or iPhoto library from your iOS device

* Quickly and easily navigate your whole library - the PhotoScope Helper app sends optimized photos and thumbnails to your iPad and streams image tiles for zooming
* No need to upload your photos anywhere - the PhotoScope Helper runs directly on your computer to share your libraries
* Pinch or double tap to zoom in and see FULL IMAGE RESOLUTION even for very large (80MP+) images*
* View all metadata - date & time, aperture, shutter speed, ISO rating and all Exif data

When sharing your Aperture library you can rate, flag and reject images right from your iOS device.
(rating and flagging is not supported with iPhoto, but will work with a shared Aperture/iPhoto library)

* Ratings and flags are recorded by Aperture immediately
* Quickly rate, reject or flag from the thumbnails or rate images individually
* View only images with certain ratings, only flagged images or only rejected images

PhotoScope lets you send, save and copy any photo using your iOS device. Filter or select the photos you want and PhotoScope will download large or small versions from your computer.

* Save images to the Photos app on your iOS device, organised into albums with the same name as in Aperture/iPhoto
* Copy and paste into other apps
* Send either the whole album, selection of photos or an individual photo via email, Facebook, Twitter

* The PhotoScope helper relies on preview JPEG images created by Aperture or iPhoto for RAW photos. Provided these previews are created in unrestricted size (see preferences in Aperture) PhotoScope lets you zoom in to full detail. The maximum image resolution you can use is limited by the computer running the PhotoScope helper rather than the iOS device. It has been tested with images in excess of 80 megapixels in size with no problem.

Customer Reviews

Fills a need and does it well

Though it still needs a bit of work, the app does what it says, and I haven't found another that enables me to view my pics stored in Aperture. Good job!

Works exactly as described

I was worried it would be slow and not worth it. But it is as FAST and I have a 500gb iPhoto library.

Grrrr Should've Read The Complete Description

I thought this app might be the answer to a nagging problem I have: no way to rate photos taken by my iOS devices in iOS. Unfortunately rating apparently only works with Aperture libraries. I should've read the complete description.
