iPhoto Comments

I'll allow it

Positive Comment by OmgItsTheSmartGuy
about iPhoto Nov 2012

iPhoto is always incredibly slow to launch, the app itself is way larger in size than it should be, and the libraries that it creates are completely nonsensical to navigate from Finder. Nevertheless, iPhoto has the best user interface of any photo management app I've seen so far. So I'll allow it.
