RemoteSnap Wireless Photo Transmit
By Hans Schneider
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Turn your iPhone and iPad into a wireless photo webcam to transfer pictures directly to your Mac over Wi-Fi. Now works with both the camera and images already in your iPhone's photo album! You can also send photos directly to your DropBox account with a single tap.
Have you ever wished you could send photos directly to your computer without having to plug in the cable and sync through iTunes? Well now you can. Take pictures with your iPhone and they are sent immediately to your computer.
Use RemoteSnap to take snapshots for sending by email, upload to Facebook or add to all the picture sites you can access on your computer.
You can also send multiple images from the iPhone or iPad photo album to your computer without having to plug it in or send photos to your DropBox account on the go.
Just download RemoteSnap and along with the small server app from www.hans-schneider.de/remotesnap/ and you're good to go.
RemoteSnap works like this:
1. Start application
2. Hit the "Snap" button in the camera view OR
3. Touch the little film icon in the bottom right corner to select existing photos from your album
4. Photo is automagically [note to translators: can be replaced with "automatically" in case there is no good translation] transmitted to a folder of your choice on your computer
RemoteSnap works in your local network at home or at work. Sending photos to DropBox also works over 3G.
RemoteSnap has been designed for ease of use and not activities that require high security! Always make sure you are connected to the correct computer. I would also recommend not sending very sensitive pictures.
What's New in Version 1.5
* Optimized on iPhone 5 and iOS 6
* Fixed crashes when sending from photo library
* Take photos by pressing the volume button on your iPhone
A few issues - but I still like it a lot!
I really like this app. It simply works great at taking a snapshot on your iPhone and shows in in a folder on your Mac. The image is not the full 8mb of the iPhone's Camera, but I'm sure that they had to do this to make it function snappy.
There are a few things that need to be fixed though:
1. Crashes a lot - both the iPhone app and the server app on the Mac.
2. Has to run in the Dock (should be optional since it also runs in the menu bar).
3. Always shows the image captured in a small window (nice), but it's always sideways, or upside down.
4. Settings on the desktop are very sparse. Some settings in the iPhone app doesn't work.
5. Some of the pictures show up duplicates and triplicates in the folder! This one is my most irritating issues right now!
I'd love to see these improvements as well as maybe a way to use the app to transfer directly to the iPad for editing. BTW - the iPad app just opens to a black screen. I'll not use the rating to ding the app. It's great at what it does, just needs some software tweaks to be fabulous!
Waste of code and 99¢
Buggy, crashes, not worth anything as it doesn't work. Changing folder is even choppy. Come on now don't little the App Store with such nonsense.
