You might not see it all the time, but every photo snapped using an iOS device has some EXIF data associated with it. If you have a jailbroken device, there are some ways of viewing these EXIF properties within the stock Photos app, but we have seen in the past that apps like Handy Album can put this information to even better use. Eventiles is somewhat similar to Handy Album, but has expanded the concept even further. With this iPhone app, you don’t need to perform any manual work, as it generates neat albums out of all the photos present in your device’s camera roll. The albums created by Eventiles use location and time data associated with pictures to group them together, and the app is even smart enough to assign suitable titles to these collections. As an added bonus, you get to apply beautiful filers to entire albums with a single tap, which can be really useful if you want to share the collection over your social network later.
You have to sign up for an account before you can use Eventiles. Creating a new account just needs your email address and a password. To finalize things though, it is also necessary to click the link sent by the app in the confirmation email.
Eventiles asks for the user’s permission to access their location and photos, but it doesn’t ask for anything else. When the app is launched for the first time, your entire camera roll is arranged into a variety of albums. If you took the photos on a special day, say New Year’s Eve, Eventiles is sure to include a mention of this day in the album’s title. The location where a set of photos is snapped usually shows up in the title as well. If you are not satisfied with the app’s automatic effort, or just want to add more details, tap the small pencil icon below the collection. Not only can albums be renamed in this way, but you can also add a few lines of additional description to them.
Eventiles offers some good album management options. You can merge two albums together, delete a collection altogether, or duplicate it for use elsewhere. To give the photos inside an album a different look, you can shuffle them around, or make use of the available image effects. The filters are applied to all photos that are part of a collection, and there is no way of choosing one for a single photo.
If you want to share an album created by Eventiles via email, choose the ‘Share Privately’ option, or use the Facebook and Twitter sharing buttons to share it over social media. If some of your friends are using the app, there is no need to share albums, as they can view your collection automatically after connecting with you.
Eventiles is a free app, and doesn’t come with any ads. It is optimized for iPhone and iPod touch, and has a decent UI. The app’s intelligence isn’t disappointing at all, and might manage to surprise you at times. Give it a go by heading to the following link.
