Utiful is the first photo sorter for neat freaks. You get easy categorization, clean separation, reliable sync, safe backup & world-class customer support.

Why make things hard, when they can be so easy? Utiful lets you move (not just copy!) photos out of the camera roll and sort them into a folder structure of your own, so that everything is neatly organized and your camera roll is clean and tidy. Utiful syncs to all your iOS devices and safely backs up everything. It's easy, fast, and reliable.

With Utiful, you can cleanly separate the different categories of pictures you keep, so you can find things quickly when you need them, enjoy a tidy camera roll and keep everything under control. Think of it: The iPhone enabled us to keep not only holiday snaps but also lots of other pictures like bills, recipes, books to buy, screenshots etc. However, all these images get saved in the same place and your camera roll becomes a cluttered mess. Not anymore! Utiful lets you categorize and separate your work pictures from your family photographs, your home remodelling project from your holiday snapshots, and also keep your private pics really private, away from the camera roll and from prying eyes.

It's easy as a charm! Utiful enables you to easily create a folder and move to it photos and videos from the camera roll so you can then delete them from the camera roll but keep them in the new folder. And, Utiful is the first photo organizer that allows you to do so straight from the Photos app! A must-have! Manage your work, hobby, and private pictures in Utiful to clean up the camera roll and get your memories clutter-free. Sort pictures into Utiful folders to find things quickly when you need them and put an end to the endless scrolling through a messy camera roll. Last but not least, your folder organization is not “stuck” on your device: You can easily export all your Utiful folders and subfolders to your computer and seamlessly synchronize them between your iPhone and iPad! No album organizer or gallery app can give you the photo management you get with Utiful: Easy categorization, clean separation, reliable sync, safe backup, and world-class customer support!

This app has been terrific, but the latest update...

The file names are way too long, can we cut short the file name especially removing “UTIFUL_” from the beginning? I think we had something like 12 characters long before (which was already a bit long), to currently’s approximately wopping 24 charaters long! Is that necessary?

It is actually a problem coz if we do backup computer files, some cannot backup such long files names. We will have to spend a lot of time to rename the files which defeat the purpose of this app.

This app has been terrific! but if this is not resolve, i will have to give up on this app, and i m sure lots of users would encounter the same problem sooner or later.

Dear mkkm2019, thank you for the 4-stars rating and your feedback! As we also wrote back to your request over our support email address, we agree with you! We will remove the prefix "UTIFUL_" in version 6.0.0 of the app, which we expect to publish on the App Store by the end of this month. Kind regards, The Utiful Support Team

What a great idea!!!

Ever use your phones camera to capture images of things that weren’t really “PHOTOS”? Classroom or meeting whiteboards? Info from posters or other ads? A quick shot of a business card? Or maybe it’s the name and number of a potential new “date” jotted down on a cocktail napkin? (Yeah...I’ve been there too - don’t judge!) You name it. Our phone cameras are great tools for capturing information quickly and accurately. But who wants all that STUFF in your camera roll with all of your pictures? Maybe it’s the photographer in me, but that really drove me crazy. Not anymore though. Utiful is a really cool app that lets me store and organize these images in a folder structure that I create so they are easily located when I need to refer to them....but they are OUT OF MY CAMERA ROLL when I want to view my photo library!!! Two problems are immediately solved - the images are organized and easy to locate AND, my camera roll is once again a place for my photographs - not all the other STUFF I may shoot. It works great on iPad and iPhone. Seamlessly backs up and syncs in the cloud! I’m not one to write a lot of reviews, but I stumbled over this almost by accident one day while searching for something else in the App Store. I’d never heard of it - and likely you haven’t either. But it works extremely well and I could not be happier that I found it! I simply can not recommend this fantastic little app strongly enough! A true “diamond in the rough”!

Perfect For Me!

I have been using this app for well over a year, maybe longer. It has stored thousands of photos for me and created hundreds of folders. It keeps them organized exactly the way that I want them to be organized. I didn’t want this app to do anything but organize my photos. And it has done exactly that! It has capabilities of moving photos or copying them to other apps and/or back to your iPhone photo app. Yes there has been a few bugs over the time that I have used this app, but none that will keep me from using it. The app maker has corrected the bugs as needed. The other feature that I like about this app is that it clears out your iPhone photo app if that’s what you want. It gives you the option to delete the photos from the iPhone photo app or keep them there. It has helped me organize photos that I thought I would never be able to organize. And as with any app none of them are perfect but this one’s just about as close to being perfect for me as possible!

We believe that photo organization can be easy and we want to make this possible for our users!
