Group-photo-sharing app Cluster is often a worthwhile app, although you may don't envision yourself sharing photos with a group. That's because along with letting you easily create group photo albums which all members can contribute, the app also does an admirable job of organizing the mess which is your iPhone's Camera Roll.

After installing Cluster, you will have to sign up for a forex account via Facebook or e-mail. Once you have signed up, then you're able to create a group album -- a cluster, as it were -- organized by event or topic. Choose event and you will browse the photos in your iPhone by date, using a handy connect to select all photos coming from a certain date to include in a cluster. If you create a topic-based cluster, you merely get the default take a look at your Camera Roll (or album on your iPhone) -- a grid of thumbnails as far as the eye are able to see.

There are four steps required to build a cluster:

1. Pick the photos.

2. Give the cluster a reputation and choose whether it should be public use or private. Anyone can watch a public album, but only those invited will add photos to it.

3. Add time and location parameters towards the album. These two fields are filled in for you, nevertheless, you can edit them.

4. Send out invites for others to join. You can have the app send invites or present you with an access code you could disseminate yourself.

For those minus the app, you will get a link which will let you see the photos in Safari which has a button to adopt you to Cluster's page within the App Store. If you share a cluster with somebody who already gets the app, the cluster will still only appear in his or her feed.
