    This is the first forum I have ever joined so it's all a bit new, please forgive the early errors. I just acquired an ipad 2 which at first cut seems a great tool, though the more I use it the more frustrated I get!
    For example, the photo app has some useful features but come to find out today, ipad uploads photos frm my PC based on date and time taken. It does not allow for re arranging photos in the ipad albums as I would want them which seems a pretty basic function to me. Apple have not been much help other than asking me to register my feedback - I sure have !
    Any suggestions as to how to fix this would be great, maybe I just have to find another app?

    cheers from Sydney, Australia

    Hi there David and welcome.

    There are many threads discussing photo apps so hopefully a search of the forum will provide you with the answers that you need.

    There is lots of good advice and info on here plus plenty of members all too willing to help with any problems.

    Remember, search is your friend. If you can't find the answer you need and you post a question then give as much info as you can to help members help you i.e. iPad 1 or 2, iOS version and name of app if the problem is with a specific app........and please don't forget to read the rules

    These are the hacking section rules for all you jail breakers (and would be jail breakers)

    We also have an app for this forum. The link to download the app is: Discussion Forum for iPad Users for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    You can download the manual for your iPad here and in iBooks search for "iPad user guide for" and you will find free comprehensive manuals for both iOS 4 and 5.

    If you have other Apple products or are interested in other Apple kit then why not join our sister forum too at

    Finally, if you still haven't had enough, how about a video explaining about our other forums (note:you may want to play this at half speed but hey, why shouldn't Phil be excited about our forums!)

    Most people who want more organizing function that offered by the native Photo app use a third party app. The most popular (most mentioned anyway) are Photo Manager Pro, Photo-Sort, and Photo Shack Pro.

    Read up on them, and also search the forum form more apps and opinions on them. The custom Google search bar at the top of the website is a great tool.
