If you have more than one iPhone, iPad or iPod in your house, you need this app!

Photo Share lets you seamlessly share photos from your iPhone to any other iPhone, iPad or iPod within Blue Tooth range.

The unique thing about Photo Share is that it feels as though you are viewing the photos right from your very own photo library. Of course if you want to save the photos to your own library you can.

This is the perfect way for mom and dad to sync photos of the kids between their phones. No more emailing a couple photos at a time. You can share hundreds of photos at once.

★★ Quick Start Guide ★★
Here is a quick example of how you would share your photos from an iPhone to an iPad using Photo Share.

✦ Start Photo Share on both the iPhone and the iPad.
✦ On the iPhone, select "Share My Photos".
✦ On the iPad select "View Friends Photos".
✦ The devices will use Bluetooth to find one another.
✦ Use the menus to connect them.
✦ Once you have them connected on the iPhone select one of your photo albums from the list.
✦ From the thumbnails select the photos you wish to share.
✦ When finished select "Begin Sharing".
✦✦✦ Leave the app running on both devices while you are sharing.

✦✦✦ FAQ's ✦✦✦
✦ Why don't I see the photos that I took using my iPhone camera?
Answer: You need to allow the app access to these photos. If you denied access the first time you ran the app you can grant access by going into your device settings. Select General > Location Services and then turn "Photo Share" to "On".

✦ Why can't I share?
Answer: On one device you must select "Share My Photos" and on the other you must select "View Friends Photos".

✦ Why won't the devices find each other with Bluetooth?
Answer: I don't know :( If you are willing to help us diagnose the problem please email us at If you just want to get it fixed ASAP typically you can toggle the device Bluetooth off and then back to fix the problem. A quick way to do this is put your iPhone in "Airplane Mode" from the settings and then turn Airplane Mode back off. Otherwise you can select General > Bluetooth from the Settings and toggle it off and then back on.

Currently the iPad can only receive photos from other iPhones or iPods. It cannot send photos TO iPhones or iPods. This feature will be available in an upcoming release.

  • It Works

    by Volwr88

    As long as you have the software on both iPhone and iPad it works fine (took me a while to figure it out). Only charged once ($.99) for application to be on both ur iPhone and iPad and you can transfer pictures back and forth via Bluetooth.

  • Great for saving HD space on iPad, viewing shared images from iPhone

    by mcBpants

    I typically don't purchase applications without a lot of reviews, but there wasn't much in the app store that would do exactly what this app describes. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the connection was made and how well the connection is held. I have a 32GB iPhone4 and 16GB iPad. I don't like to be bothered syncing up to iTunes, then transferring over to the iPad, and worrying about how much space my photos are taking up on the iPad. The way this is works is that my iPad displays the photos from my iPhone4 on its iPad screen, as if they were sharing the same library. You can actually choose which photos are shared, for example if you only want to display photos from a vacation on the iPad and don't want anything else to appear. I'm given the option to save the shared photos onto my iPad, or clear the cache and start from 0. Currently you can only share in one direction, but since the current iPad models don't have a camera - not a big deal. It would be great if the application could share videos, and display the "places" geotagged feature as on the iPhone 4.

  • Worked as Advertised

    by Vaughn J. Mantor

    I tried another application that offered more features and was more expensive (Photo Exchange) but it failed repeatedly and showed several bugs in the first twenty minutes. However, this application worked quite well immediately, exactly as advertised. I look forward to additional features, e.g. WiFi transfer and transfer from IPad to iPhone. With those in place, and as bug free as the application is now, I would post five stars.

  • Left hanging

    by Robhsmit

    Didn't read the fine print of OS 3.2. Need to upgrade while on vacation with just an iPhone and iPad - not cool. Can't test out how well this works with the iPad - another $ lost.

  • Simple and fast

    by redscull

    I've tried a few apps for sharing pictures between iOS devices over bluetooth, and this one is my favorite. Using it is simple. The way it utilizes thumbnails and previews to enable quick operation while still sending the full image upon transfer request is clever. And it's worked consistently without issues. I look forward to the update that'll allow sending from iPad back to my phones, but I'm not removing a star since that missing feature is noted and planned for. Thanks for the app and quick response to my questions (yes, this is a friendly and helpful developer, too).

  • Don't waste the money or time

    by Tintoad

    "I want my two dollars." If only it worked. I allowed it to refresh for 10 minutes and it still did not work. Big waste of time.

  • Two big problems

    by rosetree203

    1. Bluetooth failed to connect. 2. You can only share ALBUMS, not recently taken shots which is what the best use of it would be.
