Fans of the popular Photo Organizer jailbreak tweak will be pleased to learn that its developer has made a number of impressive improvements to the package, including better iPad support, and a number of important bug fixes. The downside, however, is that rather than updating the original jailbreak tweak, the improved Photo Organizer, called Photo Organizer Pro, is a brand new package carrying a price tag of $0.99. Before complaining, do remember that the original Photo Organizer was free to download, so users looking to upgrade haven't exactly lost out. Nevertheless, jailbreakers appear to be divided as to whether Photo Organizer Pro is worth the cost. As outlined in the jailbreak tweak's release notes, changes made in the new package include:
As a reminder, the original Photo Organizer allows users to rename, edit, and alter aspects of the Photos app and its contents in a number of different ways. If you're interested, Photo Organizer Pro can be purchased and downloaded in the Cydia Store for $0.99, via the BigBoss repository. As noted above, the jailbreak tweak is compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
