Sifterr - a simple, powerful way to organize your photos.
Create tags, then sift your photos while waiting for an elevator, microwaving your lunch, or waiting for the bus. Your tags appear as albums in Photos, and you can use Sifterr to order prints, delete, share, or favorite all your tagged photos.

Create tags for whatever you might want to search for later:
• things that appear in the photos, like 'Friends', 'Cats', or 'Outdoors'
• aesthetic qualities, like 'Colorful'
• criteria that help you organize or clean your library, like 'Best', 'For Grandma', or 'Blurry'
Photos can have any number of tags, so a photo of a picnic might be tagged with 'Friends', 'Outdoors', and 'Colorful'.

When you create a new album, select an album to sift through - this allows you to look just at photos in that album instead of your entire photo library. This feature is great for when you get back from vacation and want to figure out which vacation photos to delete, share, or order prints of - just sift the photos in your "Vacation" album!

Select a tag and Sifterr shows you each photo in your library. Swipe right if the tag applies to the photo, swipe left if it does not. Sifterr remembers what photos you have already sifted for each tag, so you can tag a few photos, put down your phone, and pick up where you left off later!

When you create a tag, an album is created for that tag in the Apple Photos app and in any app that shows your photo library. Each photo you sift right is added to the new album. After sifting, you can use any app you like to view, edit, and search using your tags!

* New in 2.0! * ACT ON TAGGED PHOTOS
Once you've finished sifting, you can now take action on all tagged photos right from within Sifterr! Use Sifterr to order prints, to delete unwanted photos, or to choose which photos to share! Or if you come across a photo while sifting, you can act on just that photo - delete it, favorite it, share it, or order it on canvas!

What’s New

Version 2.0.3

* Fix a bug where, in rare cases, the app could crash immediately after creating a new tag.

Great tool for downtime sorting

I’m a little obsessive about organization, and this is a great tool for bringing order to my (large) photo library. I use it to keep my photos tagged with the people in them (I have tags for each of my family members and close friends), plus a few extra non-people tags (food, animals, document snapshots, etc).
Plus I use it for more specific one time tasks - I did a pass through my library to clean up all my blurry / worthless photos, and when I take a trip I use it to decide which photos to share on FB after I get home.

Really helpful tool for organizing photos

Takes familiar left/right swiping and puts it to work! Love how easy it is to set labels and use them to take action like deleting photos. New version adds even more helpful features

Great photo organization app

Makes sorting photos and creating new albums super easy and convenient. Definitely helped get my mess of iPhone images under control. Tutorial critically also uses cute cat photos.
