I thought it would scan files etc. then ask to delete copies or not. I’m having to manually click each picture then hit delete. I can do that with the phone. Help? Thanks

No instructions, doesn’t know what “similar” and “best” mean

This app provides no real information about how to use it. The opening tutorial tries to explain what the 2 modes are, but doesn’t tell you anything about how the interface works. You’re left to guess - and the fact that it’s buggy (analyzing 2 photos when I’ve selected 3, for example) doesn’t help.

On top of that, the “similar” feature doesn’t seem to work. If you give it a block of 40 photos in the same location with 5 different poses and 8 different expressions, it’ll divide them into 2-3 groups of “extremely similar” pics (each containing photos that are obviously *very* different from each other) and pick one from each group to keep - and they may not actually be the best ones. If you actually care about keeping quality pics, don’t trust this app.

Very useful concept, not ready for prime time.

I have a lot of photos. Many of the photos are artsy-fartsy repeat of compositions and scenery, so it would be great to have aprogram like this analyze for things like similarity, sharpness, another hocus-pocus algorithms. In small batches or up to 500 wherein I know there are very similar photographs, it’s not finding anything and obviously not helping me to make these painful (hahah) decisions.
Additionally, it’s hung up a couple times in my ten attempts where I had to quit the app and restart.
And finally, only 500 photos in a batch? Plus, it only batches the most recent photos as far as I can tell, so this permutation of the app is not really useful for me with 50,000 photos on my phone.
