Sony’s Picture Rater Enhances Picture Manager Functionality

Jan 25, 2012

Sony Digital Network Applications has released today a supplemental application to their Picture Manager app, called Picture Rater. This is designed to help users rate the photos in their libraries. Two photos are displayed, and users tap the photo they prefer, which rates one photo higher and lowers the ranking on one photo. A photo can be rapidly tapped on to increase its rating to 5 stars instantaneously. The photo ratings then sync up with Picture Manager‘s ratings filters, so clicking the 4-star rating in Picture Manager will show pictures rated that score from the Picture Rater process.

Picture Rater does require Picture Manager to run, which is disappointing because this is an interesting way to see pictures on one’s Android phone; I discovered a bunch of photos I didn’t even realize that I still had. Also, I was reminded how annoying apps that install data to the SD card can be when their media shows up in other apps. Picture Rater is available for free on the Android Market.
