Please note: iOS will let compressed photos appear both in the album you specified as well as in the "Camera Roll". I.e. when deleting the new compressed photos in the "Camera Roll" the photos will also be deleted from the other album.

Please note:
1) The app will only compress photos in JPEG format. Screenshots in PNG or other formats like GIF cannot be compressed.

2) If you have many photos on your device it may take up to one minute until the pictures will be shown in the app. So if you have chosen the album from which you want to compress images and you don't see anything please be patient. It just may take a few seconds until they load.

3) Don't select too many photos at once.

Exactly what I was looking for

If you’re looking to reduce the size or the image quality this application make things quite easy. Do you have the option of either reducing the image quality or the image size. You’ll appreciate the options to select either or

Inconvenient! Horrible! Not iPhone Friendly!

This application only resizes images that are jpeg formatted. Any option selected within the application one is prompted immediately to purchase the full version at $4.99. This is rude, and abrupt to the user's experience. One is only to use the most recent 50 pictures in one's photo library. The application looks at the dates to verify the recent 50 pictures validity. One can deviate from this inconvenience by taking a screenshot of the picture in question. I was not able to find any settings to edit my picture format on my iPhone 7 Plus. Thus, making the application appear, at the least, not iPhone 7 Plus friendly. I am not aware if changing the photo format is possible on the iPhone 7 Plus. It is horrible, that the application is not equipped with the ability to change the photo format. It's is an inconvenience, and possibly a feature they must only offer in the full version. It's in short a consumerist ploy to take people's money.

Didn't work

I downloaded the app on iOS 10 and it didn't work.

I created a new album but it was named U instead of the name I chose.

I selected the 7 most recent screen shots to compress but when the app finished working the folder was still empty.

Sure showed me a lot of ads though.


The developer sent me a nice note pointing out that buried at the bottom of the description it mentions that this tool is only designed to work on jpeg photos and not PNG, which is the format the iPhone takes screen shots in. He suggested that I try compressing photos.

Well, I downloaded this app specifically to compress screen shots; if I want to manipulate photos in more detail I upload them to my Mac. I simply have no use for this app as it was designed, and had already deleted it from my device. Still, I upgraded my rating from one star to two. Still no explanation for the album naming bug, after all.

Developer Response ,

The description of the app says that it can not compress screen shots. The app has been built to compress regular photos only that you have taken with your original iOS camera app. Please try that and you will see that it's working. Thank you so much!
