Is it too difficult to get your photos and videos in original quality from your iPhone or iPad? Simply access them from any nearby computer or another iPhone/iPod/iPad using Web Browser without need to install any 3rd party transfer utilities.

* Access and download all your photos and videos instantly without iTunes syncing and without installing 3rd party transfer utilities

* Simply run WiFi Photo Access on your device and point Web Browser on your computer to displayed address

* One tap download for photos or videoclips (you can also choose to view in current window or view in new window) to another iPhone/iPad or any Mac or PC computer

* Download all videoclips in original and unmodified HD quality (when sending by e-mail all videos are repacked and lose quality, this won't happen with Photo Access)

* View or download all pictures while preserving all metadata and original quality

* Show off your pictures directly from your device without need to sync, e-mail or upload

* Video thumbnails display video size in Mb and duration in seconds

* Application continues to run in the background so you can still access it when you close the app or switch to another app (this time is limited by iOS and you will be notified when you're running out of time)

* Photo Access will prevent auto-lock and screen dim feature so your WiFi connection stays alive until you close the application

* Configurable custom port that Web Server listens on

* Optional privacy to deny access to another persons on same local network (username and password authentication)

* Photo Access requires iOS 4.3+ and works on iPhone, iPod and iPad

* Location Services needs to be enabled for Photo Access to be able to access your media files (this is because photos might contain GPS coordinates). This is an iOS requirement and your GPS location is not being acquired, nor used for any purpose.

* If you have Restrictions turned ON, please make sure to Allow Changes for Location Services at least temporarily on first startup so Photo Access can get access to your Photos library.

What's New

Version 1.3

* Added support for iOS 8 and iPhone 6/6+

Got the job done


All I wanted to do was get pictures and videos made on an iPhone over to my MacBook. It took awhile, got "server not found" when entering the URL wifibox provided. Changed the port number a few times. Then suddenly after hitting "refresh" for the 50th time, a website appeared! Sure enough, all my pictures were available on an elegant web interface. Was afraid if I synched this iPhone with my Mac I'd blow away all the pics and apps on the iPhone, so this was the workaround I needed. Synched by creating a wifi network on my Mac since no wifi network was available. had I been on my home network this app may have worked more quickly.

This is great!


For some reason Photo Stream is never able to get all the photos from my phone to my computer. This app opens instantly in my browser with thumbnails of every photo on my phone.
Double click on the thumbnail for full screen image then right click to download. Not as convenient as PhotoStream which in theory downloads them all in one shot. But for me PhotoStream never works whereas this app does!!

Viewer not a downloader


Great for viewing full-res files, but without even a prev/next button combo, navigating is painful.

It's been said already, but actually downloading photos is not the intent of this app. Sure, you can right-click each on its page and save to disk, but it does not (yet) feature a download button nor any kind of download archive/zip feature that it so desperately needs.

Lastly, though wi-fi was turned on, I still got the "turn on wi-fi screen". I had to exit the app, unload it from the phone's multitasking (double-click "home", hold over app icon until a "-" mark appears, then delete it), then restart for it to work and show me the generated URL.

I still give it 3-stars because it's cleanly designed, minimalist, and works quite well in what it does do. Needs to do what it implies it can do to gain the last 2 stars, though.
