Remember the 20 photos you took to get one perfect shot? They are sitting on your iPhone and gobbling up storage. With Gemini Photos, you can keep the photos you actually want and clear those you don’t — without the drag of removing them manually.

those you seem to prefer, like edited and favorited
those with faces in them, with smiles and open eyes
photos in good focus

all but the best in a set of similar photos
those with closed eyes
blurred ones

screenshots, exact duplicates,
photos of text,
and other clutter

review the rest of your photos and videos,
swipe up if you want to keep it
swipe down if you don’t

flip through selected photos to make sure you don’t want them
select something else if you don’t like the app’s suggestions
tap Move to Trash to remove selected photos
and tap Empty Trash to delete them for good


iOS doesn’t let you delete the whole photo library in one go, but you may want to do that at some point. With Gemini Photos, you can remove all your photos in a tap.

Save your $!! Horrible customer support

I subscribed to this app (monthly charge) and have been (trying) to use it for several months and have had some issues with it. Lots of small glitches but still workable, if there was an issue I could usually find a workaround . I then ran into an issue that I couldn’t work around and needed help from support. I emailed and was told I would get a response within 48 hours. Didn’t happen. I emailed 2 more times over the course of the next two weeks asking for some kind of response so I know my issue has been seen and they are working on it. Nothing. After 2+ weeks I get an email with an apology and asking if I’m still having the same issue. Yes, yes I am. (If you had bothered to check my account before replying you would have known that). So they toss the ball back in my court and say I have 48 hours to respond before they “close the ticket”. Then, they close the ticket 24 hours later. I don’t check my email for a day (in remote area, no cell service) and I have an email response that they could have figured out themselves if they did 10 seconds of research, and an email closing the ticket that I inquired about multiple times for 2+ weeks. Such great customer service for an app I pay to use.

Almost cool

I was really excited to find this app! I have several of MacPaw’s apps, and I was needing something like this. But there is one glaring problem (kind of two). It doesn’t allow for you to either adjust how close you want it to match similar items, or doesn’t have an “exact” and “similar” difference. Sure it would be nice to remove similar photos, but what about just duplicates. I have no way to adjust that. I found one app eventually that I use now. It has a section for exact duplicate photos, then one for similar, and you can set how similar you want them to be before they show up on the list. I also felt like the “best photo” algorithm didn’t work too well. I saw too many poor photos being picked as the one to keep. It would try to get rid of the HDR photos, ones where people are actually looking at the camera (and try to keep the one where they aren’t) and even tried to say the same background, but different people were similar photos, and try to delete one of them. It turned out to be too risky to even try it, so I went with the other app.

Simple and Essential!

Back in the early 2000’s, my first child was born. Digital cameras were becoming more prevalent, so I purchased one to capture those important firsts. After an upload my PC back then, its drive died but I was able to get the pics back after tonnes of tinkering.

Ever since that day, I have taken over 700,000 pictures and videos, and unfortunately have become obsessed in backing them all up, to the point where I once had seven copies of each picture I had taken!! Trying to sort manually through all of them was absolutely not possible, so I just stuck with them.

The Gallery Cleaner was an App Store suggestion after I’d purchased a few editing apps, and man, it was by far THE BEST suggestions I’ve seen to date.

This app is ridiculously easy to use, sorts through media nice and swiftly, but most of all, the algorithms it uses to detect the pictures in the related category are spot on! My library has never been as organized as it now is, and I’m down to just a master library and two separate back ups.

So as soon as I receive my tax refund this year, I WILL be doing the one-time purchase...thank you Gemini!
