  • Organize Pics On Your iDevice With PhotoAlbums+
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJfDTOnnSJU]YouTube - PhotoAlbumsPlus[/ame]


    SpiritOfLogic, the devs behind iRealSMS and PwnTunes, now have a slick new tweak to the Photos app up on Cydia. PhotoAlbums+ allows you to create, manage and password-protect photo albums right on your jailbroken iDevice, without having to connect to iTunes, download them all, and manage them on your computer. The tweak uses familiar iOS screen elements and gestures and plays nice with any app that uses the Photos interface.

    The tweak allows you to create new custom photo albums from inside the native Photos app, using a + button that now appears at the top of the Albums list. It works just like Photos in how it lets you choose which photos or videos to move out of the default Camera Roll album into the new custom albums, or move from one custom album to another. You just tap the thumbnails of the pictures you want to distribute, and tap 'Move' to file the photos on your iDevice however you want. Another nice addition is the ability to password-protect your album by clicking a lock that appears when you create a new album and specifying the password. To delete an album, swipe across the album in the listing, and all the photos in the album are moved back to the default Camera Roll album.

    What's nice is that the tweak also works perfectly with other apps that hook into Photos in iOS, so when you want to upload pics to Facebook, for example, your albums will still be organized and password protected in exactly the same manner. PhotoAlbums+ is $2.99 from Cydia.

      Download "Photo Folder" from the App Store, it does it all and syncs with itunes. Before someone start railing me, I'm jailbroken and have tons of paid apps through Cydia; but even though this app seems to be awesome, it doesn't do anything like the Photos Folder App thats available through the app store. I thank the developer for his hard work, but I won't be downloading it...yet.

      Who are calling a troll, dipstick? Since when is one a troll for simply voicing an opinion then being berated for doing so with personal attacks? Explain your logic in calling me a troll, softlad ???

      You don't see a plus at the top right hand corner of the screen when you launch your Photo app?

      No, you will not have to pay. It will say that you have already purchased.

      This article tells you exactly what it does and even shows you a video on how to use it.

      Don't be a D-bag. Support the guy who put work into making this app for us.



      And yes, it works on 4.0.1 if you are not stealing the app obviously.
      I think i'm going try it before buying it. Hell give us a trial version then opt us to buy it later. Look at how many ppl are having problems installing it and no it doesn't work on 4.1.

      It works more than fine on my iPhone 4 with 4.1.
      It's one of the best tweaks out there and it makes me wonder why Apple didn't do this.

      i bought this as soon as it was available, and im happy with it for what it does.
      its great to be able to move pics from the camera roll to a folder, even if it is virtual. And the file naming is no big issue in explorer. its not difficult to open a folder and see what the contents are.

      My only problem with it is, having seen the folders in explorer it would be nice if i could add pics IN to them from my PC. I may be wrong but thats not possible as i understand it. So to get pics IN you still gotta either sync them through itunes (but then they are in folders and cant be moved) OR email them to yourslef and save them to the cameraroll. Is there no better solution to putting pics ON to the phone?

      You're Welcome....

      If you're tired of fighting with getting the PhotoAlbum App working, after spending the money and it not working right...Simply purchase the Photo's Folder App, available through the App Store...Here's my previous post:

      "Download "Photo Folder" from the App Store, it does it all and syncs with itunes. Before someone start railing me, I'm jailbroken and have tons of paid apps through Cydia; but even though this app seems to be awesome, it doesn't do anything like the Photos Folder App thats available through the app store. I thank the developer for his hard work, but I won't be downloading it...yet."

      You can create Folders, import pics taken from your camera roll, into your newly created folder, and password protect ALL folders or individual folders. You can also take a new picture, from within the app...from within the folders.

      Based on everything I've seen here regarding what ppl want from this app, that it doesn't do, I can assure you, that Photo Folder from the App store, will do it all and more!

      If i've helped you, please be sure to hit the THanks BUtton!
