iOS 5 allows users to create new photo albums within the Photos app, and to copy images from one album to another.
This is a new feature in iOS 5 that should make an awful lot of iPad and iPhone users happy:
In the Photos app in iOS 5 you can create a new album – and you can copy photos from one album to another.
You cannot move images from one album to another, only a copy or ‘Add to’ action is allowed. Even so, this makes it possible to do some good organizing of photos right on the iPad.
It’s not perfect yet perhaps, but it’s a whole lot better than having to do everything via desktop apps like iPhoto. This new functionality is working well in the latest iOS 5 betas.
