Best Photo Deletion App

Easily the fastest way to delete photos out there. The swipe to delete in both single photo mode and the grid view of photos is fast, slick, and incredibly intuitive.

Purrfect little app!

Does the job as promised...quickly and easily. Great way to keep your camera roll tidy. Now if only there was a way to use it in Facebook!

Working great for me !

I tried a handful of these kind of apps and this is my favorite to use. It has never done anything weird or unexpected but just did the job quickly and safely. And meowly lol :-)

Cleared storage on my iPhone in <1 minute

I traded my new 64GB iPhone with my daughter’s 16GB iPhone as she had over 2,000 photos and videos and was almost out of storage space. I couldn’t even download the update as there wasn’t enough room. Plus I didn’t want all the photos and videos. Then I found Purrge and within 15 minutes of finding the app, I was updating my iPhone. Awesome way to delete photos on an iPhone and worth every penny!

New update clears up prior issues

Have been using this app for years. Took a little while for this update... but happy it’s back to 100%! Also love the free extra cat sounds haha.

Good start, but....

needs the ability to show photos by album to be very useful to me. I especially want to be able to select all the photos in Imported albums from the camera connection kit and delete them all at once.

Love it! But Need browsing by Album

Super easy and fun way to get rid of my random and no longer needed picture!! However it would be great if I could check my photos by album... One common use case: I have tons of screenshots! Most of them are just one time used photos so I usually have to go to the screenshot album and delete the newly added photos. (I realized that if I delete a photo in albums that are create by me, they are actually not deleted but 'removed' from the album... It might cause some problem? I don't know..)

Tinder for your Camera Roll

I like to take lots of photos of the same thing and then choose the best one later. This app makes the process so much easier. I can quickly swipe through and delete the ones I don't like.

Worst App Ever

Bought the app. Screen was all black as soon as I allowed access to camera roll. Then it finally works and it is just the same as the Photos app. This is wrongfully advertised that it is more helpful to declutter than the regular photos app but in reality it is thE SAME THING only with a picture of a cat when they ask do you want to delete. Stupid. Give me my money back.

Doesn't Delete Anything

If you have a LOT of photos, this doesn't work. I have 25,000 photos on my phone that I am trying to get rid of and this was NOT the solution. It can delete 1 photo or a dozen with no problem. But you can do that easily with the photo app. If you try to delete thousands of photos with the app, it just freezes and does nothing. Obviously the testers at CNET never bother to test this with a very LARGE photo library. I'll be requesting a refund from the app store.

Delete photos fast. Really, really fast. CNET: "...

delete photos faster, with less tedious tapping and more swiping." The Next Web: "Purrge lets you swipe (in feline fashion) ... to quickly delete rejects." iDownloadBlog: "If your main focus is on deleting mass quantities of photos with a swipe, this is perfect for you." AppAdvice: "... purge unwanted items from your photo library using simple swipe gestures." iPhone Photography School: "... delete unwanted photos with cat-like reaction speed..." Matts Apps: "... incredibly simple design... I really can't believe I haven't found an app like this before." @thejaketrease "This is possibly my most-used app now." @eevonvon "This app speaks to me on so many levels..." @LisaSullivan "YES" @yeesamson "Simple and beautifully done. Delete unwanted photos from your iPhone, save space and time." @MDJCreative "Purrge is a great app for clearing out your burgeoning iPhone camera feed." @ccarella "... I love this idea for a mobile camera roll utility." @PleaseEnjoy "The annoyance of deleting iPhone photos 1 by 1 has been solved by this awesome app..." @mitchellholder "Have always wanted this..." @nicolejensen "Finally!" Purrge is a beautifully designed app for staying on top of your ever growing photo library. The app takes full advantage of simple swipe, drag, and flick gestures to make deleting pictures easy, fast, and (dare we say) enjoyable. Grid View: Select photos one at a time or select multiple photos at once by swiping across. Single Photo View: Swipe up to delete. Swipe back and forth between photos to determine which photos you want to purge from your library. Shake to undo! Today View Widget: Keep an eye on your photo count when you're not using the app. Simplify photo management, delete photos lightning fast, get rid of screenshots, duplicates, and bad photos, and free up memory on your iPhone and iPad. You can kiss (or hiss) these errors goodbye: "Cannot Take Video" "Cannot Take Photo" "Not Enough Storage" "Storage Almost Full" Photo hoarders rejoice! /\__ /\ (=^_^=) Meow at us @purrgeapp on Twitter. Enjoy!
