iOS 5 will bring a number of very nice features to the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. One of my early favorites is the ability to create new photo albums on the iPad. I’ve mentioned this one before briefly, but now that I’ve got iOS 5 on my iPad 2 I’m actually putting it to use.
It’s a big help having this long-awaited functionality. I’ve already created albums for wallpapers, Pics of our pets, App review screenshots, and accessory review photos – and I’m sure I’ll be creating more soon for family photos and other subjects.
The one drawback is that you can only copy images to new albums, not move them – so if you really want to streamline the organization of your photos you need to do some manual removal from the source albums that have had images copied out to new albums.
Even so, this is a heck of a nice new feature in iOS 5.
