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!

Update: PhotoSync 2.0 review

PhotoSync App LogoPhotoSync has been one of my very first file transferring and syncing apps. I’ve already reported about PhotoSync eleven months before (with special focus on the settings!). But how is PhotoSync 1.7.2 app doing right now? Almost perfectly: The PhotoSync Companions are running stably both on Windows 8 (version 1.6.4 released on November 22, 2012) and OS X 10.8.3 Mountain Lion (version 1.6.1 released on September 4, 2012). Further more, the universal iOS app for iPhone and iPad does what it should do (version 1.7.2. released on December 28, 2012). Last but not least, you got a big number of cloud services you can access via PhotoSync app. 🙂 But I could not connect PhotoSync to a Time Capsule. 🙁

Update: The Best File Manager And FTP Apps for iPhone And iPad (Review)
Documents By Readdle FTPIn July 2012 I reviewed 9 FTP clients for iPhone and iPad. The best FTP – NAS ‘Private iCloud’ app was definitely the File Explorer app, followed by iStorage HD (iPad) / iStorage (iPhone). The later ones got too many crashes. But the successors, iStorage 2 HD (iPad) and iStorage (iPhone), perform better now.

OwnCloud offers a novel service to access, sync and share your own data on a server of your choosing, that means on your own private cloud / iCloud. OwnCloud plays with the threads of clouds services with unknown places where your data is stored. Sounds interesting, but is, on the one hand, cloud computing really so unsecure, and, on the other hand, ownCloud really safe? Some, like Pascal Junod, say the later is not…

Documents By Readdle FTPDo you face the problem which iOS explorer you should choose? There is a huge number of so-called NAS, FTP, Cloud or file managers / explorers for iPhone and iPad. But which are the best FTP – NAS – ‘Private iCloud’ Apps? I spent all lot of time and money in finding the right explorer. Finally, I got the right one and, in the later, I will tell you which one!

Update: iStorage 2 HD 2.4: Universal File Manager and FTP App for iPhone and iPad
iStorage iconIn contrast to that I wrote some days ago, FTP on the Go isn’t still the best app for managing my private iCloud / cloud to me. Yesterday I found something better: iStorage! There are two apps, one for the iPad (iStorage HD, version 2.0) and one for the iPhone (iStorage for Cloud, version 1.5.13, version 2.0 coming in August this year). What impressed me was that I’m now able to manage my NAS together with Dropbox, box (not yet iStorage for iPhone) and WebDav-Access in one single app.

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).
