Update: PhotoSync 2.0 review

PhotoSync App LogoI must admit that I undervalued PhotoSync (universal app for iPhone and iPad) for the first time some months ago. Photostream and iCloud were just released and I thought that Photosync was redundant. Further more, I was upset that the Windows companion was crushing all the time, so I uninstalled the PhotoSync Windows companion (in the mean time I’m convinced that the reason for that was the same as described here).
