Hot: Photo Transfer App


Hot: Photo Transfer App

*Disclaimer: I received my Droid Razr Maxx HD along with six months of service from Verizon in exchange for my honest opinions.

I was an Android phone user and then switched to iPhone 5. Why? To make my blogging work easier, specifically working with photos. iPhone 5 has the Photo Stream option and I have a Mac computer. This means that when I take a photo it is automatically on my Mac and ready to edit.

With my previous Android phone I used the free PicSay app to send photos to myself and then save them for editing. Without PicSay the photos were just too huge to send to myself. It would take hours just to send one photo. Seriously…

When I received this Droid Razr Maxx HD from Verizon one of the first apps I installed was PicSay. The photos I take I have set up to backup to Google. However, I still have to download them to edit and use. I found using Picasa just painful to use so I gave up on it entirely.

The Amazon App Store has a free app offered each day. Recently they had a free app called Photo Transfer App. It was free (normally $1.99) so I went for it. This app uses a companion app for your computer. The companion app is free. Interestingly enough it works for both Windows & Mac.

You open the app on your phone and on your computer. In your app on your computer you choose your device.

You then authorize the connection on your phone

– you only have to do this one at setup – and voila!


All the images stored on your phone appear

in the app on your computer.

You select the ones you want to download and where you want to store them, click the download button and they are all there! So quick, simple and easy. I love it!

Most everyone knows that I do not pay for apps. However, this one is so good that I would actually pay the $1.99 regular price just to have the convenience this app offers.

What app(s) do you use to transfer photos for editing?

    Sounds like a great app, though I readily admit to not having a fully-functioning way of managing my photos. Gotta love that never-ending to-do list 😉

    Looks like a good app Cheryl and anything that makes a process simple is a winner for me.

  3. Right now all my photos back up automatically to my Drop Box folder but as you can imagine I have to frequently go in and "clean" it out. This sounds like a great solution.

    As you know I am apple based. I live the photo stream function and then download it to iPhoto or Lightroom for editing. However it does look way cool.

    This app looks fabulous. Working with all this new technology can get confusing so it is nice to be able to cut through it all 🙂

  6. I wish I saw this when it was free. I am heading over now I like the sound of this app.
