Organizing your photos can be somewhat of a nightmare: weeding out duplicates, deleting the unflattering ones, keeping tracks of the gems that you’ll want to remember forever, it all takes time and effort. SlidePick aims to alleviate this headache by better sorting your photos into relevant folders while cleaning up the unwanted ones.

Tinder for photo sorting

The SlidePick sign up process is a touch off putting, with no sign-in options for Facebook or Google+, meaning you must fill out the form which, for some reason, contains fields for birthday and gender. Once you’ve got through that, you’re presented with a useful tutorial, which explains the process in a few simple steps.

Luckily, you can restart this tutorial at any moment if you forget what you’re doing because, while the functionality isn’t complicated, SlidePick is not the most user friendly of apps. The green pencil icon at the bottom of the screen, which looks like an editing tool, is actually a shortcut to the main options. A lot of the features also seem like they take one more step than is necessary.

The way SlidePick works is that you create a new album (a one-step process), select albums on your phone that you would like to sort, and then start the cleaning/organizing process. This is the really fun bit of the app: swipe right to add and swipe left if you don’t want the photo in your album. It’s like Tinder, but for photo organizing. While you’re sorting, you can also delete, and there’s an undo button at the ready if you make a wrong move.

Coming soon…

Unfortunately SlidePick can currently only sort photos stored locally on your device, the same goes for saving. The option to connect to cloud accounts and sort or save photos here is not yet available. This is a major drawback, as not only does it limit the amount of photos you can sort, it also means you must keep these photos on your device rather than automatically backing them up to the cloud and then removing them from your phone.

The sharing options are also limited, with Facebook the only social network currently supported; Google+ and Twitter are apparently coming soon. When you click on the settings menu, it also says it is coming soon. “Coming soon” is a common theme in SlidePick.

The “Cleaning Mode” is of limited usefulness, as you can delete photos along the way as your sorting through different albums. The same goes for the “Instant Camera” mode, as all it does is save all the photos you take in one album in the exact same way the pre-built camera app already does.

Not quite ready for market

SlidePick is a fun and useful app, but it needs some work on usability, as well as the ability to connect to cloud accounts such as Dropbox, and share via a lot more social networks. Sure, there is the novelty of the swiping, but the app seems like a work in progress, and a lot of its functionality is already available in a phone’s native photo app.
