Version 1.5.1
Review by Lindylou324

Love this App! Not really free BUT SO WORTH IT! - A good friend suggested this app so that I can turn off photo streaming. I want to be able to delete unwanted photos. This app allows me to sync photos to my Mac in a seperate folder on my desktop. Then I can delete etc. before I move to iphoto! I transferred 136 photos wirelessly in under 3 min. Very simple to use and you can use "preferences" to make your own folders! One issue is that even though the app for your Mac is free you have to pay $1.99 for the app for your iphone/ipod/ipad BUT IT IS WORTH IT!!

Review by --**

quick, stable and multi-platform (always nice) - Works well, some setting could be better explained in English (they are a German company) but its a great app for ios and mac and windows. Have used for 3+ years. Really wish it would support AFP, as the Airport Extreme and Time Capsule support attaching hard drives to use as NAS (network attached storage) >> 5th star if it had this option (paid add-on or otherwise).

Version 3.0.5
Review by Anon401

Want to move a photo, this does it. - I don’t usually write reviews because everything I want to say, has been said but… I’ve had my iPad 2 for at least a year and the one thiing I could not do was transfer photos from directories on my Mac to the iPad simply, like I could on my Nook. I use the photos when I go to art class so once I paint it, I delete it - just that one. And when I take one I think I want to paint, I add it - just that one. Try doing that through iTunes or whatever. Today, my Nook died and I had to bite the bullet. So, I trawled the App store and found this gem. Whyever you want to move a photo, wherever you want to move a photo, this does it. Simply. Intuitively. Puts it where you want it. Nothing that’s already there disappears. Stuff you never wanted doesn’t get put there. Well done, Photo Sync!

This Review is the first one I’ve ever written where I seeked out the app after downloading it to wr - I want to let everyone know that I downloaded this item on 3 different devices (my iphone, my macbook, and my iMac) I love this app. It is so worth it. It works so great. It’s unbelievable. if you download it, you won’t regret it. definately worth the money. I wish it could let me give it more than 5 stars!!!!!!
