Use the New Photos App in iOS7

iOS7 comes with a new photos app. It can seem a little confusing at first so I thought I'd make this guide on how to use it. Once you're use to it it's really a good improvement over Camera Roll.

In camera roll. All your pictures are just ordered in the order you took them. But with photos they are saved in categories based on location and time. This makes it faster to find the ones you want.

So if you go on a trip or take a lot of pictures in a period of time. All those pictures from that time and location will be saved in one section.

Here's an example. As you can see I spent some time in Las Vegas. All my pictures from that trip are in one section making it very easy to find them.
