Utiful helps you organize your photos better. It’s the first app that solves the two biggest problems of photo organization on iPhone and iPad. Unlike any other app, it lets you sort photos into folders without leaving a copy in the Camera Roll, and it also gives you a separate place for your work, project, and random pictures so that they don’t clutter your life’s moments anymore. Utiful is the only app that lets you keep your photos truly clutter-free!

With Utiful you get the photo organizer that iOS has always been missing, a fast and easy filing system that unties your hands and lets you organize your photos better! Utiful solves for you the two biggest problems of photo organization on iPhone and iPad:

1. Utiful is the first iOS app that lets you truly manage the Camera Roll using folders! Unlike any other app, Utiful enables you to easily create a folder and MOVE to it photos and videos from the Camera Roll so you can then delete them from the Camera Roll but keep them in the new folder. And, Utiful allows you to do so straight from the Photos app! A must-have!

2. Utiful is also the first iOS app that lets you cleanly separate your life's moments from all the rest of your pictures! Think of it: By default you only have one single photo storage on your device, in which your precious memories get cluttered by all the other things like work and project pictures, screenshots, and random photos of all kind. With Utiful you get the first ever SECOND photo storage for iPhone/iPad that beautifully solves the problem! By moving the work, project, and random pictures to Utiful, you separate them from your life's moments, clear the Camera Roll and clean up the hateful mess! Sort them into Utiful folders to find things quickly when you need them and put an end to the endless scrolling through a messy Camera Roll!

Wow! Looove it!


I went from an iPhone to a Samsung and back to an iPhone again. The major thing I missed in the iPhone that the Samsung had was how I could easily keep my photos in folders without having the huge photo feed. I couldn't remember if I had certain pictures in albums so I just gave up and could never find my photos without scrolling through my iPhone which is daunting if you have as many photos as I do on my phone. This is the answer! I now have my photos in albums again! I am thrilled! I just got this app a couple days ago and voila! I am so pleased! Well worth the money!

Dear Lolly50, Many thanks for your awesome feedback! Please don't hesitate to get in touch with us anytime, should you have improvement suggestions - you can do this also through the app: Settings > Feedback. The Utiful Support Team



I'm still in test mode but so far I'm very impressed with this app. It does everything I wished the native phone photo storage did. I can create folders and even organize into sub folders. I can move or leave the photo in Photos (copy). I can move photos around in their folder or between folders. I can use send to instagram or Facebook, etc. It would be nice if somehow these other apps allowed me to open Utiful for photos (recognize it as photo storage) but I can see where that might be a tough thing to do. I'm pleased.

Dear Librkat, many thanks for your great feedback! Utiful is seamlessly integrated with the native iOS apps like Messages and Mail, as well as with other third-party apps like WhatsApp Messenger, Hike Messenger, Slack etc. as described in our FAQ (Settings > FAQ). Unlike WhatsApp, the Facebook and Instagram apps don't offer an option for accessing photos outside the native photo storage. We have repeatedly contacted the developer teams of these apps, requesting that they add such a feature to allow the direct access to Utiful. We haven't received a positive answer from them yet however. Still, we'll keep repeating our request, hoping that Facebook and Instagram will hear to us. If you have further suggestion, you can contact us directly with the Settings > Feedback option. All the best so far, The Utiful Support Team

By far best photo organizer app


This app is what I’ve been waiting for. Actually moving photos to albums instead of copying them is such a help. I could put them in albums in the camera roll, but deleted the wrong ones and lost them. Plus scrolling through thousands of photos to find one is a pain! Utiful not only solves all that, I truly have never experienced better customer support. Pavel ALWAYS replies, often immediately, and he actually listens to his app users. I can’t recommend this app and staff highly enough.
