  • Excellent app

    by Rodrigca22

    Just an excellent app, although it would be nice to have direct wifi connection, it behaves really good.

  • Saved Memories!

    by Solshn

    After a computer crash I was so sad that I lost all of the pictures of my kids. They were on my phone, but was left having to email them to myself a few at a time. I just transferred 385 pictures in under 5 minutes. And all of the photo info transferred fine. Thanks!!

  • Great ap

    by Bradford Rogers

    Does what it's supposed to when iPhoto, etc., don't!

  • Saving my photos! Yeah!

    by sandstress14

    All other methods to offload my photos have failed then stumbled onto this app. Was wanting to upgrade my phone this weekend but can't until everything is backed up - my photos are last. Still working through video transfers but getting there. Great app!

  • Fantastic app & support!

    by jpvogl

    I had a minor snag due to a mistake I made during installation, and received a nearly instant response with clear advice that quickly fixed it. Worked perfectly from then on, and couldn't be easier to use. Great product, excellent support!

  • Works Great

    by West TX

    Able to use this app on home PC with Windows Vista. Gasp!

  • This is great. Works.

    by ams59

    This is great and it works perfectly. My husband downloaded it too. Transfers are super fast I don't know how it does it. I move stuff from pod to laptop all the time. You can pick and choose and images don't get lost in the cloud, mixed up nor overwrite . It just transfers what you tell it to. The interface is extra nice, simple anyone can make it work.

  • very convenient

    by Bentonio3169

    and so easy to use. sending/receiving doesn't take a long time either. very satisfied with this app.


    by Pitt29

    Great app. Easy to use. No issues!

  • Works great!

    by Valley Jo

    So far so good...after a few little blips (had to close down the app on the phone and restart it), it has worked fine. Transferred pics and video from my Samsung Galaxy Exhibit phone to my iPad 3, and did the same from the iPad to the phone. Beautiful transfer!!

  • Easy device communication

    by Sherri's Man

    This app is great for getting pictures from iPad to computer or phone to computer regardless of whether it is Mac or Windows. It is the app I have been looking for!

  • Works great with iPhone 5!

    by ReynHornwood

    Great app. I use it daily to transfer photos from my MacBook Pro to the iPhone 5. Works great!

  • Very good!

    by du565

    Makes moving pictures and videos from my iPad and iPhone to my computer easy and fast.

  • Just what I was looking for!

    by Music Luvmore

    This app works fabulously for transferring photos AND videos I've shot with my iPhone to my MAC. It's just what I was looking for! Thanks!

  • Perfect

    by jrhill12345

    Works right every time! Fast and easy.

  • Excellent app

    by Chirorehab

    Fast, effective transfers. Don't try to transfer more than 100 at a time. I kept getting disconnected. If you do less than 100 at a time it works great.

  • Superb

    by luvie23

    This app is so fast & reliable & so easy to use.. Definitely 5stars or more...

  • A must have for transferring photos

    by FatifyFriend

    This app deserves all five of the stars that I gave it. I transfer a lot of my photos to my USB so I don't have to save them on my camera roll and this app does it flawlessly, you literally have to only click a few buttons if it's on the same wifi network. It has an easy interactive web page that corresponds to your individual product which makes transferring all the better. It is definitely worth the money if you are still deciding.

  • 5stars

    by kissyface52


  • Great app!!

    by Bouncer57

    Definitely recommend this ap

  • Genius!

    by Kressp

    Works like a charm, so smart! Easy and user friendly! Everyone should have this app.

  • Absolutly flawless performance!

    by Rybrcoul

    I needed to transfer about 1000 pics and video clips from my iPod Touch 5 to my laptop with Win 7. The transfer was absolutely flawless. Glad I found this app. Although there are other methods for transfer, I am sold on this one.

  • Photo Transfer App

    by Arizona Snoozin

    Great app. I use it often.

  • Brainless App

    by BLK MB 2009

    Doesn't require any tech skill to easily transfer and file your pictures to just about any device. I highly recommend.

  • Thee BEST!

    by CharliDNR

    This is the BEST $2.99 I have ever spent! My grandson, Levi, is terminally ill and we (me and/or Grumpa and sometimes our cat, Trucker) make a goofy video for Levi every night to encourage him to eat his yogurt and drink his milk. It is hard to hold the iPhone and make the video so we use the iPad. But we want it on our iPhones too. So this app is the shiz! LOVE IT!

  • Just plain works-

    by Kc:3

    Something that's easy to use and does what I want. Thank u

  • Save your $2.99

    by Kkbaby01

    Terrible app. Pictures carry over but what a mess.... You'll have pictures but not in any type of order... There's pictures that I know for a fact where taken on the same day and they are 4 different places...great app to move a few pictures --not for mass transfer

  • eh

    by Nymalby

    crashed a lot and didn't put my photos in order

  • Great app for novice

    by Junkinben

    Perfect everytime and fast! My first app to use and it was a snap.

  • Awesome

    by Bcb7991

    Excellent app. Allows you to transfer photos in specific albums quickly and efficiently which is extremely useful as the idiots at Apple didn't think to make such a feature in the photos app. Highly recommended.

  • It's good!

    by DP7xv

    Once it's connected it works well!

  • Great for a tech dummy like me

    by sbitzig

    Seriously simple and easy to use. I'm sad I've waited this long to figure out how to get videos on my computer. Best $3 I've spent in a long time.

  • Life saver

    by 21mic21

    Best ever, worked great and user friendly

  • LOVE!!!!

    by Jlynn9999

    Best app!!! It is simple to use and makes transferring photos between devices a breeze!!!

  • O M G !!! Amazingly Great App!

    by ipadempress

    Updated review - I gave this app 5 stars before. I still find the app great but, it keeps ASKING FOR A REVIEW! I've already reviewed this app. If they removed that FLAW I will change back to 5 stars. I just downloaded this app and it works FLAWLESSLY! Great job! Isn't it great when you get QUALITY apps like this! Makes your "magical" device more magical! I love it more and more each and everyday! You guys ROCK the most! This is the "Angry Birds" of photo and video transfer! There is no better app! I just can't say how much I love this app! Thank you so very much!!!!!!!!!!

  • Easy to use

    by Palmer31512

  • Great!

    by marchitos

    No issues after transferring a few hundred pictures. User-friendly and works fast.

  • Nothing Better

    by On the road reader

    Fantastic! Didn't know anything could beat sliced bread. Works perfectly. Love it.

  • If only it had a better interface

    by P.mousse Esq.

    As far as getting the job done, 5 stars. A few tweaks of the interface would make it so much easier to set up. I feel like I have to figure it out again every time I use it.

  • Terrific app!

    by Pjsc1109

    Great app for quickly transferring large or small amounts of pictures from one phone to another!

  • Absolutely Great!

    by Ronald Carruth

    What a great app. My iPhone was filling up the memory with pictures and I wanted to transfer them to the home computer. Super easy. Super fast. Great investment. I'm a happy camper in just a few fast minutes.

  • Nice

    by Jr Rafael

    Muy buena la APPS me gusta necesitamos updates

  • Thank you

    by TinkerSays

    After image capture deleted pictures off my phone I finally, after 2 days, got them back with third party apps & a lot of luck pushing the right buttons. No luck needed here, it just works. Thank you! No more hoping things go right backing up my pictures. :D

  • Great app!

    by Golfer McGee

    Easy to use. Great price. Seamless integration and transfer. Highly recommend.

  • Best choice

    by Gadgetki

    Best photo transfer between iPad and PC, I can upload and download both.. Easy to use. Highly recommended for everyone

  • Love it

    by Carrie Stutsman

    This is the best app for sharing photos from my PC, iPad, and iPhone.

  • Transfer app

    by PotterotterIII

    This app makes me feel so computer savvy, it's so simple to use! It sends photos/videos pretty quick from one device to another. My only problem with it is it doesn't let you know what pictures you've already sent over. When I lose my wifi connection and am unsure of what photos have been sent already, I have to start over, unsure of what I've already transferred to my iPad. It gets kind of confusing. But other than that it's a wonderful app and incredibly useful!

  • Extremely useful app!

    by Ufufnfcnfjsih yvjsn

    Easy to use, and helpful for transferring photos and videos between all my iDevices and iMac. Have not had any issues with crashing, seems fairly intuitive, and as long as there's a strong wifi signal, everything transfers over quite smoothly. This is one of my most productive and often used apps.

  • Great App fast and easy to use!

    by R808T

    Sent photos to my iPad using Bluetooth and worked like a charm. No more texting or emailing myself the pictures and having it take forever.

  • Great app that makes it very simple to transfer photos

    by Lewal

    Makes sending and receiving photos between my iPhone, iPad, MacBook Pro, and PC a breeze. It allows me to move pictures I take off if my phone (only 16GB) so I always have memory available for more photos and videos. Additionally, this app has continued to improve over the years. Keep up the good job guys.

  • A+++

    by Gregvaw

    It works as described, what a pleasant surprise. Thanks

  • Excellent photo transfer app!

    by ArtTeach71

    This app does exactly what it claims it does-- quickly transfers pics from one device to another. Supper way if sharing pics!!

  • Crashes on my iPad and iMac every single time

    by gordonf238

    After it transfer photos, it crashes on my iPad Air and iMac (latest generation) every single time. Their tech support advised me to reinstall on both machines. I did, problem persists. I don't see where all the 5-star reviews are coming from.

  • Awesome organizing tool

    by kelly180

    SO easy and functional. Makes organizing photos easy to do on a regular basis. I take a lot of photos on my phone and I only have 16gb, so I run out of space quickly. This app makes it quick and easy to upload photos and videos in a few minutes. Awesome!

  • Will not discover read on Mac

    by Marklck1

    This app will not discover read on a Mac the windows version it does on the Mac only can read from http.

  • 5 stars no caveats

    by Smtfish

    This app solves the problem of transferring photos to and from my iDevices fast and easy while allowing me to retain decent control over my personal (albeit boring) data and avoiding the opaque nature of icloud.

  • Simple, Effective, Quick

    by Hilariously fun

    Over my normal WIFI it works great to move my iPad pictures to my Windows PC. Great value for this app. Nice Job

  • El Senor

    by Gatornapper

    Couldn't be better!

  • Fantastic app

    by KanKat73

    I hate that there is no USB port on the iPad. This app solves the problem for photo and video transfer; quick, intuitive, easy to use.

  • User Friendly Photo File Transfers Over Home WiFi

    by typhoon stroller

    User friendly and easy to use. After you load the application on your IPAD and download the application on your PC, photo transfers are simple to manage after your device is recognized. Easier to transfer than via ITunes.

  • Works great

    by Bosque Bill

    Easy to move one or many photos between phone and my Mac. No more dealing with iPhoto - hooray!

  • Awesome

    by qwerty ytrewq

    Rare that an app is both powerful and easy to use! Well done.

  • Bueno

    by Kunowa


  • Worthless Junk App - no support for video

    by DJ Lee

    Bought It, Tried It, skips all videos that are .MOV. Worthless Disappointment. How the heck do you sell an App that doesn't support .MOV in 2014 ? .MOV is a very old and well established Apple standard format supported by all devices. Developer needs to fix this please. 80 percent working is still a 20 percent failure.

  • Great App

    by jeremy Burr

    Life saver!

  • Wow - transfer w/o iTunes sync

    by JayHutch

    This app works just as it should. GREAT app. So frustrating transferring files if one device has no AirDrop capability. I'd give it 5 stars (and I never do that) but the receiving device only sees the album of the sending device, not the actual file. That threw me at first afraid I was downloading entire album. But it only downloads what the sending device has picked. No worries about security as you must authorize the connection before it happens. Just what I was looking for!

  • Excellent App

    by Fedscribbler

    Works as advertised. Apple should supply with iPad.

  • WAS Incredible

    by Jaeguar

    Not sure what's going on after update but it is not transferring all the photos when it says it does. Sadly I lost a ton of pictures I took and already deleted before realizing this. Used to be my favorite app...Cannot recommend until it's fixed...

  • Excellent App

    by Memadx

    Easy to use and provides a perfect local backup method.

  • Great app

    by GypsyBro

    Great app no problems. Worth buying...

  • Love it!

    by GK313

    Great way to transfer video from phone to pad. Stoked!

  • Even for Dummies:)

    by Captjlh

    This app is the best app to transfer pictures and videos from one device to simple!!! Pick the pic or video and your off and running.. I recommend it for whoever might be intimidated by computers or apps..easy easy easy!!

  • Very useful app

    by Catzip

    Use this a lot to transfer to/from iPhone, iPad, and windows PC. Works great!

  • Best Photo Transfer App

    by TGIF007

    Being an aspiring mobile photographer, I was looking for an app to get my photos over to my iPad for post-processing. I found this with Photo Transfer. It can't be any easier. Select photos on iPhone - receive on iPad. Period. No quality loss, very fast, and very simple to use. I would highly recommend this app for anyone looking for a transfer tool between devices.

  • The best for transferring between Windows and IOS devices

    by ALDAPodHead

    This app can't be beat if you live with Windows and IOS PCs and devices. It's seamless! Probably my favorite app of all.

  • Best app ever

    by Reyessun

    I was having the biggest problem getting my pics transferred from iPhone to tablet and this made it all simple a child could do it! Thanks for making this app is the best!

  • Fantastic!

    by Liuba13

  • Incredible

    by Jaeguar

    Nuff said Jan 2014 Thanks for the update so love this app :)

  • Not Bad

    by Gunslinger1051

    This actually worked really well between my iPhone 4S and Windows XP. Downloaded the app on the laptop per instructions when I downloaded the app on the phone and it interfaces not only allowing me to put it in my documents file but also loaded into Picasa as well.

  • Photo Transfer

    by Dhpettit

    Works like a charm! I am tickled to death with this app. Easy to use. I downloaded about 6 gb's of photos and videos to a flash drive in short order. Now I can fill it back up with more photos and videos of the grandkids!

  • Best on Market

    by Sutter11

    Ease of use makes this the best photo/video transfer app on the market, bar none.

  • Love!!

    by Pinkpoodle1293

    So easy to use & really simplifies the whole process-no more cords! Yippee!

  • I love this app.

    by deborah4923

    Definitely one of my favorites and most often used. Absolutely flawless.

  • Love it!

    by Bella 121212

    Finally an easy way to get my pictures backed up!

  • Not what I wanted, wasted my money

    by Township Resident

    If you want an App that let's you interface with your iPad to transfer photos from your PC to your iPad, then skip this App. You actually have to go to your PC and select the photos that you want on your iPad. If I'm going to sit at my PC to find photos that I want on my iPad, I might as well as use the cable connections. I have a wifi and both my PC and iPad are connected to it, so this App was a huge disappointment, a waste of my money.
