MacPaw Launches Gemini Photos, an iPhone App to Remove Photo Clutter and Free up Disk Space Fast

MacPaw releases an intelligent photo duplicate finder for iPhone  — Gemini Photos. The app uses a smart machine learning algorithm to help users quickly slim down their iPhone photo library by removing similar and duplicate pictures as well as photo clutter such as screenshots, pictures of text, and blurred shots.

With Gemini Photos, MacPaw, which has previously focused on developing products for desktop, is entering the market of iOS applications.

Gemini Photos was built to solve the problem of a large number of redundant photos iPhone users report to have. According to a market research conducted by MacPaw, 35% of iPhone users report having too many redundant photos, and 58% say that redundant photos are a problem.

“The idea behind Gemini Photos was to create a simple app which would help users clean their photo libraries and free up iPhone storage space fast,” says Oleksandr Kosovan, CEO of MacPaw. “Gemini Photos was inspired by the users of a desktop app we built earlier — an intelligent duplicate finder Gemini 2. Similar photo cleaning was one of the most popular functions of Gemini 2, and today we’re happy to bring this function to life in our new iOS app.”

Gemini Photos has inherited the best features of UI design from its desktop companion Gemini 2, an app with nearly 1M users worldwide, which received a prestigious design award — the Red Dot.
