Screeny — Delete Screenshots With Ease

Screeny — Delete Screenshots With Ease

Even after the release of iOS 8, the whole thing with organizing screenshots on your iOS device is still a terrible experience. Your screenshots still end up directly into your Camera Roll, cluttering up your feed of Photos taken and images saved. There are apps like Screenshot Journal and Screenshotter that help you in organizing your screenshots. However, if you’re only looking to quickly delete any old screenshots you have in your Camera Roll, there’s nothing better than Screeny.

Screeny is a simple & tiny utility app that helps you make some space on your device by finding and deleting screenshots cluttering up your camera roll. With a single tap, it scans through your Camera Roll and displays the screenshots it finds, along with how much space they’re utilizing. You can tap to select the ones you want to delete and hit the delete button. That’s it. There’s nothing complex about Screeny at all. The design is simple & striking and the on-screen instructions help you understand the app with ease. Screeny also gives you a handy tip by telling you how much space photos that are older than 3 months are using on your device.

Screeny is available as a Universal app on the App Store for just $0.99.
