Air Camera / Drop Box- My review on a couple of free Smart Phone Apps. for file transfers from phone to cloud to computer
Well, besides the fact that this is a great (free) way to back up your pics. when you are on the go, why would you want to do it?
Simply put, for those photographers, digital artists, teachers, or parents (like me), you can really get creative with it! And I love anything that sparks creativity. How about for those photo of the day projects? Or for those time-lapse projects that take a really long period of time? (like photographing your child's face once a day. (See also the Everyday app., another one I love) How about the tree in front of your house? How about as a way to document student progress? You could take a photo of their drawings or writing as they learn and develop. For anyone interested in science, here's a great way to document your experiments. There are lots of possibilities. (For more info. on ideas on time lapse, see this video tutorial I made.)
Air Camera allows you to make separate folders for each of your projects that are safely stored, and easily organized.
Still don't like this free app.? And yes, it's still not perfect, so my favorite alternative is the Dropbox app., although the storage is more limited. No filters in Dropbox, but with that app. you can also transfer videos or audio files from your phone to Dropbox in the cloud, and then back to your computer without syncing. It is also a great way to share files with others as well.
If you know of any other better ways to tranfer media from phone to cloud to computer, please share.
