    I think you forgot one: Photo.net Gallery. It shows beautiful photos of the Photo.net collection. Especially nice are the photographer’s comments. Universal app as well.

    Hey, I’m surprised Photo Shack Pro isn’t listed here. Or is this just about photo editing apps. As far as I’m concerned, Photo Shack Pro is the absolute best photo management app available. The perfect iPad companion app for the avid or professional photographer.

    Photo Shack Pro is awfull and useless – it only allows for ONE more level of albums than ipad photo itself anyway and it keeps crashing . The worst is that I lost ALL my photos in the albums after downloading iOS 5 – it just seems to loose connection to the photos in the main library – i have given up on it now and just made an endless list of folders in the library – why can it not recognise folders inside folders – am I the only one who uses more than one level of folder to organise photos on my computer ?!!

    Don’t blame Photo Shack Pro for your iOS 5 upgrade problems. Mine hasn’t crashed even once, and it organizes into exactly as many levels as its description says it does. If you’re looking for the same functionality as your computer, your first mistake was buying an iPad in the first place. The iPad isn’t a computer, but you can probably find some jailbreak junkware to do what you want. Just read the description this time.

    Photo Shack Pro just went on sale for the Holidays at just $9.99 (normally $14.99). Sale is good until Jan 2, 2012.
