Lots of third party developers try to one-up stock iOS apps, but so precious few have really given Photos a run for its money. Although Photos+ certainly seems like it’s got a shot at it.

Second Gear’s new app claims to be “The best way to manage photos on your phone,” and that doesn’t seem like an empty boast. Photos+ will display your photos in albums with large thumbnails and in full-screen views, show all sorts of extra information such as where a photo was taken and what camera was used, let you easily organize your photos, quickly share via Facebook/Twitter/etc, and it will display animated .gifs. As in it will actually animate them.
