Pho­toT ime

Scan and iden­tify your pho­tos

An app that scans and or­gan­ises pho­tos by break­ing them into key­words based upon the con­tent of the photo, Pho­to­Time will au­to­mat­i­cally spot if an im­age con­tains, say, ‘an­i­mals’ or ‘food’, and cat­e­gorise them.

The app did a fan­tas­tic job of iden­ti­fy­ing shots with text in them, or dif­fer­en­ti­at­ing be­tween cats and dogs, for ex­am­ple, but failed mis­er­ably at its own ‘selfie’ cat­e­gory.

Faces are also tagged, so you can search by name. For now, only faces de­tected by the app (which was a bit hit or miss) can be tagged, but the devs prom­ise a way to tag all faces in the fu­ture. Hap­pily, search­ing was fast, and groups of tagged pho­tos can be book­marked for later.

Sadly, Pho­to­Time’s smarts are re­stricted to Cam­era Roll, Face­book or In­sta­gram, and it doesn’t sync tags across all de­vices. J.R. Bookwalter

An app that makes or­gan­is­ing and tag­ging your pho­tos easy, but it’s not quite per­fect yet.
