Photo sync iOS and android

12 posts in this topic

What’s the best way to keep the photos from a Samsung and an iPad synced with each other and up to date? I mean so that a picture that is taken on he Samsung phone then appears in photos of the iPad..

i guess one of the storage providers can handle that?

I recently started using Flickr again for my phone. Had an account years ago but never really used it whilst in iOS world but finding it quite useful now, not sure on the ipad side of it but can't see why you won't be able to install on iPad and use it in the same way. Good amount of free storage too +++

Dropbox apps on both platforms used to allow for pictures to be automatically uploaded which then auto syncs. I say used to as I've not used it for a while but suspect the functionality is still there.

Dropbox is my toy of choice for photos...  New versions of the app for mobile devices even have a photo category as distinct from files.

Dropbox.  Syncs all photos you upload to Facebook too if you want it too.  

Amazon Prime Photos is superb too if you are a Prime member.

Google Drive offers excellent space but they annoy the life out of you with bloody "Remember this day..." shite.

Ah, cross-device will not make photos from an Android device appears in Photos on the iPad.  I'm not even sure you can do that with anything.

Google Photos. Only downside is you need to pay for storage if you don't want compressed photos.

I think they are compressed if you say use the free storage option otherwise they use your storage tier and are untouched.
