Utiful is a new, easier way to organize your photos. It’s the only app that lets you sort out your 'utility' pictures and enjoy a tidy camera roll! You get a separate place for your utility pictures and the ability to move (not just copy!) photos from the camera roll into it. Utiful enables you to move all your utility stuff like your work and hobby related photos as well as your purely private images into a folder structure of your own so they are easily located when you need them, and they don’t stand in the way when you want to view and enjoy your memories.
Utiful gives you a separate photo storage for utility pictures, which is a must-have add-on to iOS and its Photos app. Think of it: The iPhone enabled us to keep not only photographs like holiday snaps but also lots of purely functional pictures like bills, recipes, books to buy, screenshots etc. However, all these images get saved in one and the same place and your camera roll becomes a cluttered mess that gives you an uneasy feeling every time you open it. Not anymore! Utiful provides you with a fast and easy filing system for your utility pictures, completely separated from your standard photo library, which beautifully solves the problem! With Utiful, your utility pictures are organized and easy to locate, and your standard photo library is again the home of your real photographs.
And here’s how it works, 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 allows you to do so straight from the Photos app! A must-have! Move your work, hobby, and private pictures to Utiful to clean up the camera roll and get your memories clutter-free. Sort your utility 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 structure is not “stuck” on your device: You can easily export all your Utiful folders and sub-folders to your computer and seamlessly synchronize them between your iPhone and iPad!

Ratings and Reviews
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!
