After the new upgrade, the albums made aren't sorted by date. I can see albums made on 2012 mixed with that one made on 2010. Why?!


iPad 2, iOS 5.1, iPhoto iOS

    Sorry I meant the events aren't correctly organized by the new release.

    When iPhoto for iOS imports your Events they are not sorted by date. They are sorted alphabetically. When you think about it, that really makes sense. This way you can control the order in which Events appear by changing the name of the Event. Also, I am constantly combining Events in iPhoto on my Mac because I have so many of them. So now I have Events with photos taken on different dates. That would be a problem for the app to determine which date to use when it was imported into your iPad/iPhone. I like the way Apple designed it.

    No. Just the last 4 events aren't properly sorted. And I don't now why. Because on the native app images these are correctly organized by date (when the photos have been taken). Therefore these aren't sorted alphabetically.

    Is there anyone could answer me? Thanx

    You're right that iPhoto for Mac app sorts Events by date. I'm pretty much aware of that because I often merge Events with photos taken on different dates. In that case, the merged Event is displayed according to the earliest dated photo in the Event (the Event title becomes the range of dates in the merged Event).

     

    But this is not how it works in iPhoto for iOS. iPhoto for iOS sorts the Events you import via iTunes alphabetically and not according to date. You can test this by going into your Mac's iPhoto app and temporarily title four existing Events as A, B, C, and D. Now import them via iTunes onto your iPad and launch iPhoto for iOS. You should see that the Events are displayed alphabetically and not by date. This is how it worked in version 1.0 and in the latest version 1.0.1. Give it a try and let us know if that works.
