HTW Berlin (University of Applied Sciences) Releases New Photo Application

See all your photos neatly organized on the iPhone/iPad

 

The visual computing team of HTW Berlin (University of Applied Sciences) has released a new app called “Kiano” (Keep Images Arranged & Neatly Organized). Kiano is available for the iPhone or iPad. The app requires 19 MB of free memory and iOS 11.0 or higher.
 

“Kiano helps to look at your photos in a completely new way,” reports Prof. Kai Uwe Barthel the developer of the app. ” With simple gestures it is possible to navigate visually through all your photos. Kiano is the only app you need to view and find your local photos. Besides a flat or perspective map view showing all images visually arranged, Kiano also offers traditional list views, a professional image viewer and the possibility to search for similar photos”. 

Before you start Kiano the first time, the app analyzes all images once. This is done locally without any data transfer to any server. When you start the app next time, only new and modified images will be analyzed.

 

After the initial analysis the app can quickly generate visually sorted maps of thousands of images. In this map you can use familiar gestures to zoom in and out, adjust the perspective or select individual photos to view them or to start a similarity search. In the list view, photos are conveniently sorted by year of creation, and the album view allows to view all created photo albums. There is also a slide show, which can be further configured in the settings of the app, a video player, and other options for customizing the map view.

 

As Kiano is available for free, it is definitely an interesting option for all photo enthusiasts.
