Photosphere, Explore Your Photo Library !

Photosphere is a photo library browsing app, that enables you to quickly find a photo in your iPhone or iPad. By displaying the photo thumbnails on rotating spheres, you can easily identify the photo you are looking for. After using it a couple of times, you will start to remember which sphere a particular photo is on, and whether it's toward the top or bottom.

Each sphere contains 100 thumbnail images. The app can handle all of your photos. The spheres are akin to pages in a photo album, but are way more fun to interact with.

Spin it to the left, spin it to the right, see your cherished memories spin on by. Double click to see the image, or use the arrow buttons to move on to the next sphere or previous sphere.

While in the image view, both Portrait and Landscape mode are supported. Naturally you can also use the pinch gestures. Zoom in up to 25 times ! The action button allows you to share that photo. You can share via Facebook or Twitter, Email, Print, Assign to Contact, and even AirDrop.

If there are not enough images to fill all 100 available positions on a sphere, the thumbnail images will repeat, starting with the first one on that sphere. This only happens when you have less than 100 images, and on the last sphere. So if say, you take picture 101, now you have two spheres, and the second one will have picture 101 repeated all over it.

Take another one, 102, and you will have 101 & 102 repeated on the second sphere, and so on.

In order to work, the app needs access to you photos. A pop-up will prompt you for this. In the case you decline, the app will tell you how to enable it, and otherwise do nothing.

Has Potential

We should be able to create our own globe, that's what I thought it was. That would be awesome, other than that, korny! 

Only one (fatal) flaw...

I'm an amateur photographer, and bought this app to display photos I'd taken in a fun and interesting way. It did EXACTLY what they claim - it took every picture on my iPad and added it to the globe, repeating them until it had enough to fill all the spaces.

So what's the problem? It did it all automatically, which sounds like a good thing. Problem is, I don't just have my own images on my iPad. I am an ESL tutor, so I have images from the web to teach English words, maps, etc. I also have wallpaper for my iPad. And ALL of that was automatically added to the globe - every .jpg image - with no way to remove them, other than deleting them from my iPad completely. Since I need the the vocabulary images and I want the wallpaper, the app was deleted instead. Immediately. Wish I could get a refund.

If you don't have wallpaper or other .jpg images, it might work well for you. Personally, I'd rather have the wallpaper.
