PhotoSync: Simply the very best in class
PhotoSync simply is the very best of the best in its class. I've gone through so many apps and flash drive "solutions" to manage our unwieldy photo-video collections. Some were just ok; others were excellent in most areas but came up short in other areas. For example, one does much of what PhotoSync does, but after transferring thousands of photos I realized that it changed critical metadata. For example, date photo was originally taken was changed to the date we transferred the pictures. That proved to be a deal breaker. PhotoSync, by contrast, elegantly and very efficiently does everything we need it to do and precisely as we want it done. The option of automatically deleting transferred images from iDevices is a cherished luxury. Thanks for making available to us such an outstanding app!
Absolute must have Utility for your phone!!!
Got this installed after reading some app review article. Been using the app for a month now - this one deserves to be installed on every phone. Set up was quite easy.
Very customizable: I set it up to drop the photos and videos to my desktop creating a folder named after my phone and my wife's named after her phone - so we know where photos came from. I also got it set up to rename every file with the date it was taken + original file name.
I have no issues using this everyday. It's a stable app, many options. One of the few utility apps that deserve easy 5 stars.
EDIT: (Just got it updated to version 3.2)
This app just got so, SO MUCH BETTER!
Thank you so much for the "Share Sheet Support". Just tried sending a photo directly from my camera roll (without making any adjustments on iPhone or PC) and it transferred without an issue!!! Literally, watched the window pop up on my PC sitting across the room on the couch.
This update is huge! Thank you... your app is the best utility app on my devices! Thank you, thank you, thank you. Worth every penny and more!
This app has the most features
Photo sync really stands apart from the competition – it has future support from a full-blown cloud server. Not only you can upload and download from any imaginable source to any destination, they designed the app to a really minor details such as changing automatic tags in file names, extremely easy to configure. I was looking for a replacement for my dying pogoplug cloud solution, and was surprised that this app for only three dollars delivers all of the same features plus a lot more. I don't write many reviews, but after using this app I could not resist to see how much of a value and features you're really getting. So far the app has been very stable.
