PhotosPro (US$1.99) is a very appealing app that could teach Apple a few lessons. Think of it as a replacement for Apple's Photos app.
It will display your photos in a long list, or let you see what you took on a particular date or within a range of dates. It will show you a map of where your photos were taken, not with a little marker as Apple does, but with the pictures themselves superimposed over the map, which is much more useful.
Even better, PhotosPro lets you create what it calls 'stories' so that you can group photos into a particular event and share them with friends via social networks or email. You can also upload to Flickr or Dropbox.
When you highlight an image, you can see all the EXIF data as well as a representation of where it was shot on a map. The user interface is smooth and attractive. Using the app to explore my photos I completely fell out of love with Apple's Photos. PhotosPro is just simply so powerful it's hard to go back.
