    I understand that in iOS 5, we'll be able to move photos into folders directly from our devices (without syncing to a computer, as is presently required). However, I have two questions.

    1. Will we also be able to rearrange the order of photos within a folder?

    2. Will we be able to choose "cover art" for a photo album, perhaps by putting a certain photo first in an album? So, for example, if I want a picture of my mom to be next to my album titled "family" when I open the photo app, does iOS now allow me to do that? Previously, there was a seemingly random system for iOS identifying a picture to represent each photo album.

    Thanks very much for any responses and/or screen shots!

    I hope so. I'd love some photo management on my iPad.

    In this first beta, all you can do is re-order the albums. Mine are now alphabetical.

    How does it work? I've always thought it should work the same as apps, you drag one photo on top of another and boom you have a folder. It's easy enough and would provide for a more uniform experience. Just curious if that's how they did it.

    I would be most interested in knowing how to sync albums created on my iPhone Photo app to my Mac.
    I have beta 2 installed and while it's awesome that I can create new Albums I see no way to get them over to my computer and definitly not into iPhoto.

    As far as I've heard, iOS 5 will let you duplicate photos into multiple folders you can create, but that's about it. Photo Shack Pro let's you create libraries, albums, organize photos into each in the order you want, title, comment, sort, and more. Cover art is the first photo in the album. You'll have to decide for yourself if it's what your looking for. http://www.applgasm-apps.com
