Best ever PhotoSync software I’ve found

I’ve been using PhoyoSync to clear up the space in phone by backing up the photos to my home server since a few years now. It’s the tipping point which felt I must write a review by the recent great support experience I had with their staff.

PhotoSync helps our albums to be sorted allowing re-visits to the past memories with least effort. The file naming capabilities, a variety of connectivity to local and remote storages backed up by a steady software has helped the whole experience smooth and friendly.

If you are one of those who loves keeping photos and videos well organised and backed up, you’re in the same requirement set as me and I could highly recommend PhotoSync as a great tooling for that.

Best IPhone data transfer app

I tried so many different apps and online tools to transfer my iPhone pics and videos to my MacBook. I couldn’t find anything like this app and always got error back .I came across this app. I thought it might wont work as well but i was shocked after seen the performance of this app. It transfer files super fast . App transfered mine around 4000 files in almost 1 hour. I am so happy . I have been looking something like this app from last few months to transfer my data.
Good on you app creator 👍👍👍

Solves Clunky Photo Transfer for Good Title Lovers

I was an early adopter of this app, before the subscription model came in. I absolutely love it. I have tried it over a low bandwidth café connection and it was incredibly slow. Over Wifi it isn’t lightspeed, but still very usable.

This app helps me solve the problem of my computer freaking out when I try to import 10,000 photos by tagging them in small sets. Photosync solves that problem efficiently by allowing file name to be album name and then import albums. If a person imports from an album and customises the import name, ta da! Properly named photos!

I love that I can include the date and time taken and album name in the file name. Pure magic. It has the very occasional freak out, but most often these are due to the destination directory being full. On the rare occasion where it fails for another reason, it’s easy enough to restart.

If this app had Bluetooth transfer I’d give it five stars. There are plenty of places where there is no Wifi and transferring over phone plan data is too slow and expensive. For Wifi connections, it is fantastic!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback.
Some quick remarks:
1. PhotoSync can transfer over Bluetooth to other iOS devices. Transfer over Bluetooth to PC, Mac etc is technically not possible as the iOS Bluetooth stack does not implement the bluetooth file transfer protocol.
2. When there is no Wi-Fi available, you can enable the "Personal Hotspot" on your iPhone and connect your Mac/PC to it. The transfer is then also directly over Wi-Fi and does not affect your data.
