I would like to organize my photos with iPad (remove, edit, create albums etc).

I have the synology NAS and I can run the Photo app on the NAS (server) and I can use the DS Photo+ app on iPad (client) but this app can be used only as a viewer (I can't organize photos).

I also have the Aperture on the Mac and I can use the iTunes to sync the photos to the iPad but it is the same problem as with the NAS. I can't delete the photos or organize them in any way - it is only a viewer.

I have around 100k photos and I have to keep them externally. Thus, I have to use the iPad only as a remote viewer (client). I don't want to use any web related service for that like flickr, picasa etc. It is not a problem for me to download photos from the camera to the iPad and then organize them and finally move them to the NAS.

Any ideas how can I do that?

Have you looked at Cinq Photo? Not sure it has everything you are looking for but thought it might be a good start

Pixelsync offers rating and flagging of your Aperture library on the iPad:


It has some bugs but it looks such a promising app though.

It hangs when the photo library is stored on remote nas. –  name Jun 9 '11 at 8:11
You may contact the developer directly then.. –  nuc Jun 9 '11 at 9:20

I think you can not do this.. the only possibility to use some remote client like flickr or even dropbox.

Could you provide more details? Link to the application, screenshot, etc. Also, you might want to specify if you're affiliated with the company making this software. Nothing wrong with that, but 1-rep user member since today posting short answer might lead to people thinking it's just spam. –  Loïc Wolff Apr 14 '11 at 9:06
