I'm looking for recommendations for a photo-viewing app for my iPad; Apple's “Photos” app has too many bugs and limitations for my needs. What I want seems simple — an elegant way with which to impose my photos onto someone hapless to come within an eyeball's reach of me — but I haven't found it yet.
Features that I hope for:
Clean, simple, uncluttered interface.
Photo update via FTP, Dropbox, or some other method where management is done on my computer and merely reflected to the device.
Supports display of basic metadata on each photo, when asked.
Supports display of a map for geoencoded photos.
Supports large images.
An arbitrarily-deep folder structure.
Image sorting: at least via photo date and image filename.
Things that I don't care about:
Any kind of photo management on the device (rating, flagging, moving, grouping, renaming, rotating, labeling, ...)
Any kind of photo development on the device (cropping, filters, touch-ups, etc.)
Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, or anything else like that.
Passwords, slideshows, music integration, etc.
The best I've found so far is Photo Manager Pro by Linkus, after Scott Bourne recommended it. It's a great bargain for a couple of bucks, and it does many things I like. To boot, the developer is responsive, and the current version of the app contains some features and fixes that I requested. I like it so much that I built an FTP client into my new Collection Publisher plugin for Lightroom, so that I can instantly reflect changes in my portfolio to the app.
But alas, Photo Manager Pro's interface is anything but “clean and uncluttered” and I doubt one request from me would result in a monumental shift in aesthetics, so I'm looking for other options.
