PicTrove 2 Pro, the app that lets you easily search photos from various services, has just been updated with notable new features and improvements.
With its latest update, PicTrove 2 Pro now supports native searches for Instagram and DeviantArt, in addition to Google, Bing, Flickr, 500px, and Twitter. What’s more, it now supports Web searches on Tumblr, Blogger, WordPress, and Pinterest. All in all, the app now offers side-by-side photo searching and browsing across 11 search services.
The update also introduces a couple of new options for browsing photo thumbnails from all services. First, there’s the new vertical layout option, which is the default on iPhone and may be enabled in the settings on iPad. Second, there’s a new square thumbnail grid that may be enabled in the settings to replace the default mosaic thumbnail grid.
The new version of PicTrove 2 Pro also includes the following enhancements:
- Reworked slideshow mode with new OpenGL hardware accelerated transitions for the best effects possible.
- Reworked AirPlay mode for better performance.
- Reworked bulk export from picTrove saved photos to device photo library, now shows progress during the export.
- Faster startup for users with a lot of saved photos in picTrove.
- Faster photo selection and drag-and-drop arranging in saved photos. Drag-and-drop arranging now also works even out of “Select” mode.
- Fixed multi-word search which was not working from URL share extension
- Improved smoothness of swiping between photos in full photo view
- Stability and performance improvements
The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 8.0 or later.
PicTrove 2 Pro was updated for iOS 8 earlier this month, particularly with a new URL share extension for searching the current website for photos in Safari or any other supported app.
