I take a lot of pictures with my cell, as we all do. Moments that I want to grab and hold onto, and my phone is there more often than my Nikon.
Right now I have about 1200 photos on my phone, all of which I want to save on my computer, so I can back them up. Except. Backup up phone pics? Not the easiest thing.
There's Dropbox, where you can upload your pics, and then download them, but it tends to be cumbersome and time consuming, and dropbox only gives you a certain amount of storage unless you pay for it.
I've tried uploading directly from my phone to photo sharing sites, like Picasa or Photobucket or Flickr, all of which also work well, but in order to get them on my computer I still have to complete the second step of downloading them.
The thing about photos? Each time you upload/download you lose resolution. Quality. So if I upload, then download to my comp, then save them to a CD or USB, or print them? I've lost some of the quality that isn't amazing to begin with.
So then there's the whole plugging your phone in and transferring files, which works fine, if I remember to grab the cable.
Enter Photo Transfer App.
It works a couple of ways.
1. Transfer files to your computer using bluetooth/wireless.
2. Transfer files to another user who also has the app.
Both are super easy. At this moment my phone is uploading all 1200 photos to my laptop, using bluetooth so it's not bogging down my computer.
Since it's s direct file transfer, rather than an upload/download situation, I'm not losing any photo quality. It took less than five minutes to transfer all the photos and videos, and now I can back everything up on my usb or upload them to where I want for storage.
