This app worked great for the first 30 minutes I had it, and then it all went downhill. I'm annoyed because I paid $3.99 for this app and it keeps crashing. Been trying to sync all of my pics and videos for hours now and I think I’m going to give up and try another similar app.

Great app for seamless syncing to Photos (note: newer version on dev website)

Came here to write a review after getting a response from the developer for an issue I had within one hour on a Sunday!

First, if you are on High Sierra, go to the developer’s website for the newer version. I had an issue with the one on the App Store.

I used to use this app to automatically download photos off four iPhones and three iPads and opted to download to a folder (not entirely trusting access to my Photos database). With the move to High Sierra and a clean install, I decided to give it a go and it was flawless.

I have geosyncing on so any iDevice that arrives home and connects to wifi will automatically transfer its photos to my iMac’s Photos database. It’s seamless and FAR cheaper than paying for added iCloud storage to hold all those photos.

Can’t Transfer to IPhone

Purchased the App to transfer pictures from Mac to iPhone, avoiding clunky ITunes synch process. PhotoSynch has a nice clean interface and easily transfered pictures from phone to computer. However, it would not transfer to the phone. Steps appeared to work but the pictures never appeared in the phone’s camera roll even though phone and computer were on the same WIFI network and both were running the PhotoSynch App. Developer support indicated it was “a network problem.” I was unable to resolve and will have to find another App.
