PhotoAlbums+ 3.0

Author: iRealSMS dev  //  Category: Apps

The latest update to PhotoAlbum+ now brings compatibility with the latest 4.3 firmwares as well as a list of other optimizations and welcomed features which make the application more reliable and practical..

For those of you that dont know what PhotoAlbums+ is, its a simple CameraRoll Management Tool.  It allows you easily create custom photo albums so you can sort out all the images/videos from your CameraRoll directly on your device without having to first import them to your computer, organize, then export back to your device via itunes. It can literally save you hours of time and frustration.

One of our new features is the auto-backup manager which was designed to prevent loss of albums when iTunes rebuilds the photo library at inopportune moments. One annoyance that wasn’t easy to reproduce but in the end should finally be resolved.

The next new feature or rather behavior adjustments allow an additional layer of security and piece of mind when it comes to your private albums. One such change is to the multitasking resume feature of the photos app, ie. when you leave the app while viewing an album. If while in a pubic album it will resume as normal, but if you exited while in a private album it will forward you back to the album list.

Next we fixed the issue with some applications such as PhotoGene, Bump, iMovie and other apps that used alternate APIs for mapping the photos Library would somehow loophole access to private albums. Now privacy while in these apps has been restored.
The last takes place while connected to your USB cable while docked to your PC. We have omitted the USB mapping for private albums, meaning that Private albums will no longer show up in the windows file explorer.

While optimizing the privacy for USB mapping we were able to improve the entire system and now eradicate the random pc generated album names when viewing them via USB on the windows file explorer. They will now show up in the file explorer with their correct album names!

Last but not least we also fixed a bug with the PLACES tab which for some caused the app to slowdown drastically and at times crash to springboard.

So there you have it. We will continue to work on ways to make PhotoAlbums+ more intuitive, productive and practical for our current users and our prospective ones as well. Thanks for your support. Available via the Cydia Store for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

    Does it mean iTunes delete album when we sync iPhone with iTunes .

  2. Reznor9 Says:

    It means sometimes iTunes would rebuild the library during sync causing the photo library to rebuild to default. This would remove PhotoAlbums sorting and move all images back to camera roll. This was not a problem that effected all users, but it effected enough that it had to be addressed.
    Now when PhotoAlbums detects a rebuild process it will automatically backup and then restore the PhotoAlbums library data afterwards so the albums will not be compromised.

    Ok if it helps anybody, the only way i have found to transfer pictures out of my photo library is to copy all my pictures to another phone with bump, them bump them back to my camera roll, then move them after, its the only way out of about 5 i tried that works.

    Nothing else does, why is the camera roll read only when plugged into your pc???
