Minor tweaks and it would be 5 stars

So far I’ve been extremely impressed with Gemini Photos. Having used Gemini on my Mac, I was already aware of how powerful Gemini could be. The main area for duplication management, like many people is my photo library. This app makes identifying these really easy. The simple layout and selection method makes using it a breeze.

The price, either monthly or lifetime may put some off, which I can understand, but if photo management is very important to you, the. It’s a small price for the facilities this app enables.

The only reason for not giving five stars is a few of improvements I’d hope to see in future versions.

1: Some way if telling me the file name and some other metadata. Some photos appear very similar, but I want to check them before making a call on what to do with them. I know it’s not the ideal situation, but sometimes viewing the images on a Mac will show me what I can’t see on an iPhone.
2: Maybe a way to put selected into an album, rather than deleting the pictures, allowing a final review before deletion.
3: Separate similar photos and exact duplicates. Photos from an event, which lead to multiple similar pictures are grouped despite being distinct from one and other. I understand the reasoning for this group, and it helps with trimming events down, but there’s a big difference in these and exact duplicates.

Good idea. Unfortunately very hit & miss at the moment.

I’ve used many of their Mac apps, so thought I’d give this one a try, as it tries to remedy a problem faced by most of us - we shoot a lot of similar photos which we then struggle to weed out.

The user interface is well designed, and the apps runs very fast without any crashes. Unfortunately, the automated “Best result” functionality is not at all smart. It frequently groups photos of completely different subjects together, just because they were shot at the same time. Actually, photos that were NOT shot at the same time do not appear to get grouped, even if they show virtually identical subjects. It also does not seem to care whether photos are blurry. As a result, I cannot trust the app to automatically go through my photos and identify the best ones - I still have to do this manually.

As I can do the same in the photos app, minus the nice user interface, I think this app is overpriced. Once the algorithms actually work and save me time sorting through my photos, I will happily pay the asking price, but for now I have deleted the app.

Brilliant app very helpful

Just found one thing which is the only thing i found that may be a little glitch all else is amazing. Perhaps the Gemini team will fix this. When you go on ‘other’ images to remove with simple swipe down or up to save. If you empty trash can half way through the process of getting rid of some images it will not show the rest of the other images in the folder that you would like to keep or delete. I tried refreshing and it shows over a 1000 photos but won’t let me see them. Thought to give this as a feedback to fix the glitch.
