iOS 7 Photos… the Reason for Aperture 4 Delay?
I just finished watching the WWDC 2013 keynote presentation, and I gotta say that iOS 7 looks pretty sweet. One of the big things that caught my eye of course was the new Photos app, and its showing of “Collections” and “Moments”. This is notably similar to the service Everpix.com, where your photos are automatically collected into, well, collections and moments, making it easy to find and a pleasure to browse your photos.
What we saw today was just photos from the iPhone. But what if this came to Aperture (and iPhoto, of course)? What if we had complete view of our entire Aperture library through iCloud (uploading optimized preview JPEGs of course, not the RAW files; let’s not get carried away), and the ability to browse as far back in time as we wanted, and to look at any photo we wanted, right from our iOS devices?
Again this is largely what Everpix does now, but integrated at the OS level of course it’d be much cleaner and faster.
What do you guys think? If I’m right, does that make the long delay worth waiting for?
If you want to see some animations of the interface, head to apple.com/ios/ios7 and scroll down to the Photos mini demo.
At some point later today the entire keynote video will be available to stream on apple.com right here.
