Are your photo collections ridiculously out of control? I know mine are. Kwilt aims to tame all that by giving you a timeline of everything you’ve snapped across multiple different services. It’s pretty good, too.
Set up involves picking out your social networks. Kwilt can view photos from your camera roll, Facebook, Flickr, Google+, Instagram, Photobucket, Tumblr, Twitter, Dropbox, Google Drive, and a few other places too. It’ll take a few minutes to enter all the relevant details, but it’ll be worth it.
Once it’s all set up, Kwilt then offers up a timeline of everything. You can view images by the day, seeing everything all at once, rather than having to pick out services. It’s stylishly done with it easy to skim through and see what you took snaps of. In each case, you can tap on an image and choose to share it elsewhere, edit it, or add it to a custom stream for later reference. Editing is fairly comprehensive too, given it’s not exactly the main focus of the app.
You can also view images according to their source, which is cool to browse as well as a handy way of reminding you that you’ve somehow got over 1,000 images on Facebook (if you’re me), plus you can view photos by location.
That’s the real strength to Kwilt. It saves you having to trawl through so many other places and apps. Instead, everything is consolidated in the one place, proving very easy to search through. You can use an Apple TV, Chromecast or many other gadgets to stream the images over to a bigger screen too, which is great for showing off holiday snaps.
Kwilt is an all-around great app for those wanting to be a little more organized with their photos, and it's a simple recommendation to make.
