Ollie is your new favorite photo-organizing app!

HOPE recommends the *Ollie app (formerly known as GoodOnes), as a way to pick the best photos from your camera roll. This app offers a variety of features that will allow you to use the photos you love. With thousands of pictures on your smartphone’s camera roll, it can be difficult and overwhelming to comb through each image. Ollie is a photo-organizing app that does much of the work for you.

If you’re like most people, you likely have thousands of images saved, many of which are duplicates or slightly different versions of the same scene. If you’re like most people, you probably don’t have the time or energy to sort through countless images trying to find the best ones. That’s where Ollie comes in with an app that can do all of these things for you. An AI assistant sorts through your photos and suggests the best images. It’ll find the best smiles, sunsets, and the most in-focus shots so that you only really need to keep the best photos.

After downloading the Ollie app (formerly GoodOnes), you will be prompted to connect the app to your camera roll. From there, the app organizes photos according to the date that they were taken. The photos are separated into batches of roughly 30 images. This makes the process of sorting through your photos significantly less overwhelming. 

 How can Ollie be used to save time?

To cut down on time, Ollie uses a simple swiping feature. You can swipe up on the screen to add an image to the Keep section. This is a spot for photos that aren’t your favorite, but that you’re not ready to part with yet. With a downward swipe, you can move an image to the Favorite category. These images can then be displayed with a widget on the home screen of your iPhone. Additionally, adding images to your Favorite pile will automatically move them to the favorites album in your camera roll. Any photos that you are ready to delete can go into the Trash category, with a simple click at the bottom of the screen.

A recent update now allows users to mass-delete images. Ollie will select the images that are blurry or duplicates and place them in a suggested trash pile. From there, users can choose to either look through each individual image or delete them all with one click.

Ollie keeps users motivated by encouraging them to keep organizing with notifications throughout the day. A to-do list on the home screen will allow you to see how many batches you have left to sort. Finally, progress statistics at the top of the screen will allow you to see how many batches you have sorted, what you have added to your favorites, and the total number of photos sorted overall.

 Why use Ollie?

Ollie is simple yet entertaining. The style of the app almost makes the organizing process feel like a game! I love organizing my photos when I have some downtime but want to feel productive. Recently on a trip, I was able to organize hundreds of photos while traveling to my destination. This app is a simple way to improve your life and your camera roll. 

 

Lisa Tonjes Moritz is currently on the Ollie Photo Manager Advisory Board and meets with them monthly to discuss all things about the app. When you try out the app, I would love to hear your thoughts! Send me an email or DM to let me know what you think.
