Ratings and Reviews

Errors, Crashes hangs


User interface is smooth but the main point of the product is to transfer photos. It will either hang or crash within minutes of using this product, when transferring files to my MacBook pro.

Fantastic Support, Great Solution, Perfect!


I was looking for something like this and there's a few options - I've tried a few but they've not really done the trick. However, I saw good reviews for PhotoSync. I did have issues with PhotoSync initially and contacted the developers for support. A response came immediatley and with precise, helpful advice. The problem was with my router and not the app but I was supported all the way through until the issue was resolved.

Everything works brilliantly now and I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a simple photo transfer solution between iPhone and Mac/ Dropbox etc. Thanks for this and your support H.




Since the demise of Picassa I was looking for an easy way to get photos from my phone onto a computer into a sensible disk/directory format. This app along with its counterpart ios app does this. Lots of different folder naming conventions and its pretty quick too. I had used the ios app a bit before as I find that airdrop is very unreliable whereas this app just works - but so pleased I thought to try this part of the package as well, as its just saved me hours of frustration. Big thanks to the author!
