Created by the independent developer Eric Welander, The Best Photo App helps you take control of your photo library using a number of organization options and editing features in an easy-to-use interface. To be sure, it’s not meant to be a replacement for the Photos app. Rather, it functions as a supplementary app in which all changes you make are automatically reflected in the Photos app on your iOS device, and if you use iCloud Photo Library, they are also synced to all of your iOS devices.

Delete or hide. Quickly delete and hide photos, i.e., relegate them to the Recently Deleted and Hidden folders in the Photos app.

Edit, favorite, or share

Edit, favorite, or share. You can “heart” photos to access all of your favorites in one place (i.e., the Favorites folder). The Best Photo App also lets you rotate, crop, and straighten photos to improve their composition. Moreover, it includes simple editing tools for adjusting the brightness, exposure, saturation, and other properties of your photos, thereby making them look better and more suitable for sharing.

Use smart filters. You can choose to view only photos from the recent past (e.g. the last 7 or 31 days), a specific year (say, a couple of years ago, when you went on a lot of trips), or a smart album (such as Selfies and Screenshots). There’s also smart search, which surfaces photos that form problem areas in your library.

App Store Description

Clean up your photo library by removing duplicates and extra photos. Choose your best photos once, and delete the rest.

We take and manage more photos than ever before with our iPhones and iPads, which requires a new type of app to sift through the avalanche of images. The Best Photo App helps you quickly choose your best photos once, and delete the rest. Otherwise, when you want to share a photo, you're left repeating the internal debate between multiple versions of the same picture.

Always with you
On your iPhone or iPad, The Best Photo App gives you the power to sort through thousands of photos before you even get home. It's a great way to use the pockets of time that surround an event or vacation. Going through photos will be fun, and in the moment, instead of a chore for later.

- Delete and hide many photos at once
