Recommended by Lifehacker.com: "Call me lazy, but I don't like plugging my phone into my computer just to get all my pictures. CameraSync fixes this annoyance by wirelessly sending all new photos you take to Dropbox. In fact, if you prefer a different online backup program (like Flickr, Amazon S3, SkyDrive, an FTP server or Box.net) you can do that too. It's essentially like an Eye-Fi for your iPhone—which is pretty awesome."
• Background Location Syncs - CameraSync can automatically start uploading your photos in the background when you arrive at certain locations, such as your home or office. (This feature is only available on devices that support geofencing; that's the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and current iPad)
• Continue Uploading - after starting the app CameraSync can upload your photos even in the background while you use other apps (for a maximum of 10 minutes). It will even alert you when it's done.
• Zero Interaction Required - once you've setup your accounts, all you need to do is open CameraSync to keep your remote photos up to date. You don't need to pick which photos to upload, or confirm the upload, or fiddle with settings - it just works!
• Full Quality Uploads - CameraSync doesn't compress or resize your photos & videos so they are uploaded in the full quality you took them in, no pixels left behind! It also keeps all of the EXIF metadata saved by your camera.
• Smart Syncing - CameraSync remembers what it has uploaded so if you delete a remote file you don't want anymore, it won't just sync it again.
• iPad Support - CameraSync can upload photos you've imported to your iPad using the iPad Camera Connection Kit, or photos taken on your iPad.
• Works with most third party photo taking or editing apps such as Hipstamatic and Camera+ - in fact it'll work with any app that saves pictures or videos to the Camera Roll.
CameraSync requires location services to be enabled on your device, and to be allowed access to location services. This is because photos taken with iOS devices store the location in which they were taken. CameraSync is a one way sync designed to sync photos & videos from your iOS device to various online services. SkyDrive currently only supports photos and videos under 100MB.
What's New in Version 1.5.9
• Fixed a bug preventing background location syncing on iOS 8. Existing users will need to re-enable background syncing from the settings menu.
• Minor bug fixes.
Over 3 years now...
I've been using CameraSync for just under 4 years to upload my Camera Roll to an FTP server in my home. It works well, and well worth the price. Ive discovered one small issue recently, however, which will only affect a small percentage of users. I take a LOT of photos. I currently have over 8000 on my camera roll and the sync process now takes about 15 minutes. The app is blank for about 13 minutes, then the photos appear. I assume when that happens, the app is busy determining which photos it has already uploaded. The actual upload process takes the usual amount of time. I would very much like to see that delay addressed by the developer. I have also started deleting uneccessary photos from my phone in the hopes that will help speed up the process. For 99% of all users, however, this app will likely perform quite well. It certainly has for me.
Not Automatic, But Still Worth $2
So, yeah, as others have said, this thing does not work automatically because of the irritating IOS background activity restrictions. Also, triggering upload via location geo-fencing does not seem to work at all either. But it’s still a useful app. I was trying to sync everything to Dropbox and could never to get it to complete before IOS forces it to stop, especially if any large videos were in the queue. But I took an idea from another reviewer here and set up a local network FTP sync to an iMac. CameraSync will now very quickly FTP sync over the much faster local network to my Dropbox folder on that iMac, which then syncs to Dropbox at its own much more reliable pace. Setting up FTP on OSX is dead easy — just Google it if you want to try this.
Waste of time, does absolutely nothing
This app does nothing. It lets you set it up, and then when you try to start it backing up your photos, it sits there at 0.0% progress. I gave up after 3 hours of it doing absolutely nothing.
You know, I've spent all night trying to get a photo album uploaded. It's no wonder the iPad is failing... even simple tasks take all night just to find out you can't even do them. All the apps are broken & don't do what they promise. Annoying.
Edit: upgraded from 1 to 3 stars because I tried again and now, after wasting 3 hours of my time, it's suddenly uploading.
