PhotoSync 2.0 App Released With 2-Way Photo And Video File Transfer

PhotoSync App LogoAs you may know, I really like PhotoSync App, especially, because of the high-speed photo file transfer and the excellent and free Windows PC (running on Windows 8) and Mac (running on OS X 10.8.3 Mountain Lion) companions. Today PhotoSync 2.0 for iPhone and iPad (universal app) was released. I intensively tested the new version: It’s a big step ahead!

Summary: Now you’ve got 17 transfer targets to choose in contrast to 14 transfer targets in the old version. Especially, I appreciate the new SugarSync support and I think that the new SD WiFi support is appreciated by photographers, too. But the biggest new feature of PhotoSync 2.0: You are not only able to transfer photos and videos to a target, but also from a target to the PhotoSync App! PhotoSync 2.0 is already compatible with iOS 7 beta!

On the first time you start PhotoSync 2.0 you will get the following Quick Start Help on the welcome screen (later you will find it on ‘Settings’ – ‘Information’ – ‘Quick Start Help’):

Last, but not least, there are two very user-friendly features:

  • ‘Keep file names’ (–> Settings –> Expert settings –> Transfer settings: Keep file names ‘ON’) and
  • ‘Photo Edits’ (–> Settings –> Expert settings –> Photo Edits: Apply ‘ON’).

The later is a great improvement because I’m personally annoyed about the iOS camera app: If you edit a photo within that app, save the changes and if you are willing to transfer the edited photo per ‘open in’, the changes will normally NOT be transferred to other apps: The original photo is transferred. So switch ‘Photo Edits’ on and your edited photo version can be transferred.

There’s only one small negative point: After installing of PhotoSync 2.0 all settings remain except the box.net login. The reason for that is due to switching to the new BOX API. There is no way to transfer the login-data from the old to the new API.

Note: *The Time-Capsule only supports the AFP and SMB file protocols. PhotoSync supports WebDAV, FTP/SFTP, but not AFP/SMB yet. This means you cannot sign in with a Time Capsule or an Airport Station with a Hard Drive attached. This is still the sole weak point of PhotoSync 2.0!

These are really impressive improvements! Or what do you think? Is there something missing?

Stay tuned! 😉
