Unfortunately Apple doesn't allow third-party applications to delete any asset from the photo library. That's why you can't find any application able of doing that. Third-party applications are only allowed to read assets or save a new one. The only place you can delete photos, is through the native iOS photos app.

Thanks for the info, this is good info as it saves me on a pointless search. Damned apple though. I think though that i have found a way to almost "delete all" i will post as a separate comment.

To bulk delete photos from ipad:

I just accidentally tripped on a very effective way to delete lots of photos at once without connecting to a laptop, apps, etc...I'm running 7.1.1 on an iPad(?) don't know the generation, but I got it July of 2013. 32gb. I have 4200 photos on it now and I'm always having this issue too. Anyway, when you open your photo icon the default page is "Moments".  So inside Moments you have each Moment(by geography or date/day).  If you tap "Select" in the upper right corner one time you have the option to individually select photos then delete, share, etc.  So go ahead and tap Select once, then you'll notice that each Moment heading has another Select option.  Hold down this new Select for a pause and release, you'll see that all the photos in that Moment are selected.   You can go ahead to each Select option per "Moment" and hold select again for a pause to select additional photos without losing the other selected photos you have.  Then go ahead and delete those pesky photos!!!!!  Or was it accidental?? The world may never know....

Yes thats right, you can delete photos taken per day on moments view. But there's no method for inverse selection and deletion.

Thanks for your input. The tip from BRICKMAN_david is also useful because a workaround is to select all by day and deselect the photos to keep. Pity there is no full-screen option but hey it's start!
