Meh - just like Command-C, I bought into this app as well. There are so many other easier ways to do this. I used this at first, then relegated it to the unused pile of software and am now deleting it.

For getting photos from my iPhone I always use the OS X default Image Capture app. But it doesn't work the other way around. This neat little app however does. Great free tool ! Tkx

I like this app and it's iOS counterpart. Very elegant design and works well, but I really wished it could handle sending files to the device in the background, to not interrupt usage of our iPad by family members. I assume that's caused by Apple restrictions and hopefully will change in the near future.

The new iOS is going to do this anyway. There's no need for the app.

It is / does? How?

What happens when you do an iTunes sync? Is iTunes prevented from applying its own rules to syncing photos, or does it ride roughshod over your PhotoSync decisions? I can't even seems to get iTunes to ignore photos altogether when syncing.

this is a great companion app for the paid Universal iOS app. Apple should have included this in their iOS. Love it :)
