PRLog - Sep. 24, 2012 - The thing I love most about my iPhone is that I always have a pretty good camera in my pocket. It's not a professional one, but I can grab some really good pictures anytime I want. And I take quite a lot of photos for my work, when I'm with my family or simply when I find something interesting to point-and-shoot. There is an impressive number of really good photo apps on the AppStore, so I really enjoy using my iPhone.
Like the most of us I'm really obsessed about loosing my photos (especially my lovely daughter's ones), so I periodically backup my library on my Mac. I'm also a big fan of cloud-based backup features and I make intensive use of them, lately. I often do the usual trick to create more than one free account on the same provider ... adding some more space, do some sharing with my parents and my friends. All these things help me feel comfortable that my precious photos are always safe somewhere in the cloud.
So what's the big news with that?
Well, I realized that I'm getting a little bit lost in keeping track of all my accounts, cloud folders, libraries on Mac, mappings on my NAS. I'm in the IT so I can live with that, but I can imagine the pain for those who are not. Opening all those apps to connect to every single cloud provider, remembering what particular photo albums are still to be saved, checking if everything's OK ... quite stressing ...
And here's the big deal
With Photo2Cloud you can take advantage of all of your cloud accounts together (even more than one per single provider) and use mappings to create links between the photo albums on your device and your cloud folders. Once the mappings are declared Photo2Cloud will keep track of your newly added photos and will automatically save them to the right place, using all the accounts you provided.
I make an intensive use of the iOS internal feature to create photo albums; it's simple and it's there.
With Photo2Cloud you'll then be able, for instance, to show your last holidays photos to your friends publishing'em on Flickr or Picasa, send your family photos to your relatives using shared folders on Box, Dropbox or 4Shared, share your work photos on Skydrive, or perform a complete backup on GoogleDrive. All these tasks can be performed together, at once, based on the rules you decide to set-up; Photo2Cloud will do all the job for you.
You'll then be able to see all your photos on any kind of device (PC, smartphone, tablet, even TV) using your provider's native or third parties apps.
We added lot of features in Photo2Cloud:
We finally updated it to make it working perfectly on iPhone 5 and iOS6.
There are actually 2 versions: Photo2Cloud and Photo2Cloud Lite . Both are fully featured. Though, the Lite version is intended as demo app and therefore is limited to 5 uploads per day.
We really hope you'll enjoy the app.
