Can you take a guess at how many photos are taken every day? It doesn’t matter what device it is taken on, a camera, smartphone or a tablet. We’re not sure either, but judging from the figures you can see in this post, it’s in the billions, every single day. Hence, we’re sure you’re going to need a photo management app as much as you need storage to keep all those photos of food, children, pets, plane window shots you are taking daily.

Some of them have great ways to better sort and organize your photos for you; others have handy sharing capabilities and album-making "powers". Do check them out and let us know of other photo management apps that you know of.
