    So I've had my 1st Apple device, an iPad 2 since launch day. It seems Apple doesn't give you much flexibility in managing Albums directly from the device - you have to create your albums/folders on your PC then sync them over to the iPad via iTunes. :(

    Is there an app or utility that will let you create albums on the iPad and move photos and such between the albums without have to sync?

    Take a look at Photo Manager Pro.

    You can move photos all around, create folders, sort, rename (folders and photos), transfer between Photos app, send/get from Dropbox, send to/from your PC, make slideshows, etc. All this without having to deal with iTunes.

    It where I keep all my photos and I couldn't be happier with it. Of course, and as always, YMMV.

    Marilyn, I went through all the settings, export options, etc and can't find the option to use Dropbox. Where did you find it? I see the peer and PC transfer but I do like Dropbox. I had forgotten I had this installed until you mentioned it LOL. I tend to use Collections and Photosort but will give this a better chance.

    My apologies, Diane. I forgot that it was a workaround (you have to use a PC) to get photos from Dropbox. Please see my posts in this thread (#6 & #8) to see what I did.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    Thanks. Can the Photos app see folders that Photo Manager Pro creates?

    Unfortunately, no. Although Photo Manager Pro can see the Photo app photos (both to save to and to open from) - Photos can't do the same.

    Actually, I can't think of an app that Photos can see/use (other than the default Mail one)....
