doesn’t work as described/set in settings

Setting option “Sort Before Saving” when set to off/no does not work. Photos transfered from an album in MacBook Photos to an album in iPad Photos are sorted in neither the order in the MacBook album or in chronological order by Date/Time stamp. Instead they are essentially random. I even bought the paid version of Photo Transfer App. What a rip.

Why is this so hard to do? Apple can’t do in the iPad Photos (copy photos from one album to another and the sort order from the source album is chanaged to chronological in the destination album). And this Photo Transfer App can’t do (copy photos from MacBook to iPad and the sort order in the destination album is who knows what). Do the programmers ever even use their stuff? Or are we living in a world where ‘lower your expectations, achieve little, be happy’ is the actual reality?

None of the videos work

Seemed to be working great at first. Spent hours transferring over 7000 images from my wifes iPhone just to realize that none of the videos work. Since they are mixed amongst the phots this is just a huge mess. Between the poor image capture tht wouldnt transfer anything and this app that doesnt properly transer it is a nightmare. I dont like windows, but know 100% I would of been done hours ago and it wouldnt of been this hard. I always thought MAC was user freindly. Thought wrong

Developer Response ,

Hi Bobi.
Sorry to hear you are having problems. Most likely the problem with the videos is that you may be using an older version of Quicktime or another video player that cannot play the new format of videos from Apple. Please try updating Quicktime or downloading the VLC player ( which will let you play your videos.

If you need more help or more details we will be glad to help:

Fast, consistent, and user-friendly

I’ve never had an issue with this app, and I use it almost daily. Transferring videos and photos is faster than any other method, and I like that I can create an album on my iOS device through the app on my Mac, upload pics, and I’m done. Transfers are consistently fast. This has been a great solution for several of my clients/students. It just works.

Thanks for a great app.

UPDATE: since my review is older, I thought I’d provide an update. This app continues to perform flawlessly on all my devices.

I am a power user of this app and it keeps up with everything I do. I’ve recommended it to countless clients, all of whom report a fantastic experience. In many cases, it’s been a lifesaver.

This app, and what it does, deserves a much higher pricetag. When people think $2.99 is a payday, they have absolutely no concept of what it takes to produce and support an app like this.

Again, thank you to the development team for continuing to support this vital app.
