PixSort makes it easy and intuitive to find your photos. Tag and sort your photos by date, location, people, keyword, or star rating. Wirelessly export your photos to a computer on the same WiFi network as your mobile device, with tags permanently attached in the metadata. If you don't have time to tag, PixSort is still fantastic because tags are automatically created according to the date and location of the photo. Creating new tags is easy, and tags can be applied to multiple photos all at once. Album names from your native Photos app are automatically applied as keywords when you first open the app. Try PixSort and you’ll see that tags are so much better than folders or albums!

• Organize and find your photos.

• View EXIF data including shutter speed, f-number, ISO, resolution, and camera type.

• Photo transfer:
- Transfer photos to your computer over a shared WiFi network, with no cable needed. Follow direction in the app -- you will use a web browser to access photos, and then download a zip file containing the photos with tags written to the metadata. Your photos are never sent to a server, so all your photos are as private as the WiFi network.
- Export photos using iTunes File Sharing.
- Email photos with tags attached in the metadata.
- Post to Facebook with option to automatically include tags in the caption.

• Easy manual tagging:
1) Select one or more photos. Use our batch-select feature to tag multiple photos at once. To select multiple photos at once, first tap the select button. Then tap on a photo, and tap and hold another. All photos in between the two will be selected (this acts like the Shift key on your computer).
2) Select a category.
3) Re-use tags or create a new one.

• No wasted time or effort:
- Tags stay with your photos forever, because PixSort writes tags to the IPTC metadata (photos must be exported using PixSort).
- The tags you create can be viewed on your computer and online using iPhoto, Flickr, Picassa, Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, Elements, Bridge, and more.


PixSort uses tags and not folders/albums because folders are too restrictive, especially on your mobile device. Most photos do not belong in only one folder, and putting a photo in more than one folder just doesn't make sense. However, with tags it's easy and natural for multiple tags to be applied to a single photo, so you can quickly find exactly what you are looking for, grouped exactly how you want.

Photos are not saved in PixSort, so do not delete your photos from your native Photos app. Think of PixSort as a photo viewer and portal. This is different from most photo organization apps which copy your photos. Why would you want to waste memory on your mobile device and have two copies of your photos anyway?

So in your native Photos app, DO NOT DELETE PHOTOS YOU WANT TO KEEP!


- PixSort works with photos, not videos. Currently, screenshots do not appear in PixSort.
- Tags are written to photos exported using WiFi, iTunes File Sharing, or e-mail. However, PixSort does not write tags to photos in your native Photos app.
- Using the WiFi transfer, photos are visible on your computer in a web browser. Use the zip file download to save all the photos to your computer.
- Some third party photo editing apps remove the location data which prevents automatic city location tagging. If that happens you can easily add your own location tags.
-You can speed up the WiFi export by lowering the photo resolution. Open the native Settings app and under PixSort, turn off “Full Res. Wi-Fi Export.”
- Remember, PixSort does not save your photos so do not delete photos you want to keep in your native Photos app.

Like what I'm seeing so far but can't find anywhere that gives number of pics that are uploaded or how to determine storage qty. like the tag and category feature but only about 10% of my pics are available for tagging... Thanks.

Tagged photos aren't saved to iPhone

I expected this app to save the added tags to the original photos on the iPhone because the app description clearly says that PixSort doesn't make extra copies (which is a desirable feature). But when I view my tagged photos in a different EXIF viewer I can see that the tags were NOT actually saved into the picture on the phone. My guess is that the tags exist as parallel metadata in the PixSort app only and the tags only get added to the picture file through the EXPORT process. Therefore this app is useless to me. I want an app that edits the picture on the iPhone without requiring me to export it in order to get the resulting embedded tags. PixSort, the way it is now, essentially IS CREATING COPIES of the picture by forcing you to export the picture in order to get the edited photo - that is the same unwanted effect as if it directly made copies on your phone itself.

Save to iphone for use in other apps

Nice app to organize photos. I would like to be able to save the info back to my phone so I could easily identify and use photos in other editing apps. I would like to be able to flag photos quickly for: deleting, and for further editing/processing, etc in other apps like Photoshop or Snapseed.
