Just so as you know by the way and don’t freak out but, I’d like to sort my photos when I’m sat on the loo. Or in the bus, or anywhere else I want to kill time with my phone. I don’t want to edit them when I’m sat at my desktop - that’s work time. It really pains me that I can’t do that and so my photos just pile up in a big heap while I waste time reading things I don’t care about on Twitter.
When you consider that the iPhone is now the most popular camera (in the U.S. if not the world), it’s sort of ridiculous that the photo management on the device is so obtuse.
Yes, it’s better than anything found on any point-and-shoot, but it could be so much better still. Just as Apple has moved app and music syncing away from the desktop, they need to move photo management fully to the cloud as well. The photos on my iMac are the only files I need to backup on a Time Capsule anymore. Everything else lives in the cloud.
