[prMac.com] Seoul, Korea - mix1009 is today proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Photo Cleaner 1.0, their handy iPhone app that deletes the video portion of Live Photos, in order to reclaim space on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus devices. The new app will particularly come in handy for users of low storage capacity iPhones.
Users of the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus handsets are quickly embracing the new Live Photos feature, introduced alongside the new devices. However, owners of 16GB iPhones may find their device is quickly running out of storage space. One reason for the clutter is the new Live Photos feature, which stores a video version of snapshots in addition to the usual still photos. Each photo stored in this matter takes up to twice the usual space for a normal photo.
While Live Photos is a great new feature, users had no way of extracting the still photo from the Live Photo file, while removing the storage space consuming video portion. That is, until now. Photo Cleaner solves that problem, by automatically deleting only the video portion of the files, leaving the still photo portion intact in the device's Camera Roll.
"Personally, I love the Live Photos feature on the new iPhone 6 and 6s Plus," says Chun-Koo Park, developer of Photo Cleaner. "However, I knew there would be a need for a utility such as mine, especially for users with devices that have limited storage. Photo Cleaner offers flexibility to users, by allowing them to control how much storage space the new Live Photos feature uses on their device."

Photo Cleaner allows users to delete the video portion of a Live Photo, while retaining the still portion of the photo. This gives iPhone 6s users the advantage of being able to take as many Live Photos as they'd like, and then decide later whether to delete the video portion of the photo. If users later decide they didn't want to delete the video content after all, they can simply go into the iOS photos app, and recover them from the "Recently Deleted" Album, where they will remain for 30 days before being actually deleted from the device.
Photo Cleaner takes full advantage of the new iPhone's 3D Touch features, allowing users to use 3D Touch gestures to preview Live Photos, while they can also make use of the Peek menu to clean or delete the photos. The ability to select multiple photos for cleanup makes the process of cleaning up a large number of Live Photos a breeze. Plus, Photo Cleaner always lets you know exactly how much space has been regained by cleaning up the Live Photos.
