Q: I am trying to rearrange the order of my photos saved in a photo album on my iPad. I cannot seem to move the photos around to a different order. Can you help?
A: The photos app on the iPad is very lacking, as you have discovered.
You can neither sort by day nor by name. It makes no sense to me, but that's how Apple programmers made it. One way around this is to install and use an application to sort the photos for you.
An example of one such app is found here.
Once you download and install the aforementioned application, you can sort the photos as you wish.
