    It would help if you told us what software you are on and what model phone.

    I am on iPhone 4 with 4.0.1 and it works just fine for me.

    I've installed on an iPhone 3GS with iOS 4.1, and it works for me.

    Please consider that the "trick" performed by PhotoAlbums+ (as far as I could understand) is to split the standard camera roll into an unlimited numbers of separate "sub-rolls" (consider them as subfolders of the main camera roll). For this reason:
    1) you can create any number of new "sub-rolls";
    2) you can move freshly shot photos from the main camera roll to any of the "sub-rolls" you created;
    3) you CAN'T move photos to/from real albums already existing prior to installing PhotoAlbum+, or created by syncronizing your iPhone with your computer via iTunes;
    4) you CAN'T force iTunes to copy your "sub-rolls" from the phone to the computer (just like you can't force iTunes to deal with your standard camera roll).

    So, what's the point of having this app? As for me, it helps me keeping my my main photo roll tidy, even when I shot a lot of photos: I can now move them in temporary albums ("sub-rolls"), waiting to go back home and manually move them to the proper album the usual way.

    As a bottom line, YES, I too expected PhotoAlbums+ to move photos between normal albums, and I'm a little disappointed about the actual limitations of this App. Maybe I've just overlooked or misunderstood either the app description (that doesn't mention any limitation) or the way I should operate.

    EDIT:
    After searching this forum a little, I realize I haven't misunderstood anything. Frankly, the app description should mention the fact that PhotoAlbums+ doesn't manage the normal albums; and also the explanatory video posted at YouTube depicts an iPhone without any existing album: too a "clean" environment to think it was not done on purpose...
