Remo Duplicate Photos Remover is an interesting app that solves an annoying problem. With large amounts of storage on our handheld devices, it is easy to accumulate a lot of unwanted photos.
I usually load up my phone with photos and videos and then transfer them over to my Mac. This is where I usually look for duplicates to discard. So how about finding and deleting duplicate images before importing them to a master library. Remo Software has a solution for this problem. Remo Duplicate Photos Remover allows you to find and remove duplicates while they are still on your iOS or Android device.
According to Remo’s website, “17% of photos on a typical device are identical copies of the original”. Needless to say, these duplicate images consume a good chunk of usable memory. If you’re running out of storage this can even affect your device performance.
This app is easy to use and focuses on one main task, finding duplicate photos. The benefit, of course, is recovering storage space. Today’s smartphone cameras allow you to shoot in burst mode where very similar photos are created.
Remo Duplicate Photos Remover has the ability to find and list photos created in burst mode. Using its intelligent De-Dupe Algorithm it can also detect similar photos sent to you by multiple people via WhatsApp or other messaging systems. After completing a scan it displays the photos in sets. This is the most interesting feature to me since it allows you to see similar photos. You can now make a decision on which photos you need to keep from a set of similar images.
In addition to Android and iOS versions there is a Windows version as well, but no word on a Mac version at this time.
The Free Demo allows you to delete up to 15 duplicate photos, while the Pro version is unlimited. After that, the service is subscription based. The subscription lasts for 6 months.
The App features:
• Delete duplicate images that are exactly the same
• Remove images that look similar irrespective of names
• Mark/Unmark duplicate images in all the image groups
• Automatically keeps one best copy safe in each group
• Preview images to have a clear look at them before deletion
• Get image details like date, resolution, size etc.
