There are hundreds of thousands of iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad apps for just about everything -- so how come the one you need, the one you know just has to be there, is so hard to find? Enter TiPb's new weekly feature where staff and readers alike sort through the App Store and help you find just the right App for That. This week, Sean asks:
I am a father to a four and a half year old baby girl and keep up with a blog that I created shortly after she was born to chronicle my fathering experiences as well as her forays into the big wide world. I do all this blogging solely from my iPhone 4 and iPad 2. I take pics and video on my iPhone and then write the blog posts on my iPad later in the day. Photos are not an issue as I just mail them to myself and then save them to my camera roll on the iPad, but Videos are the bugger! Is there an app out there that will let you save video to your iPad's camera roll that you have captured with your iPhone?
Ideally, Photo Stream and iCloud would include the ability to sync videos between devices, but until that happens, we must go to the App Store to find a solution. To see what we found for Sean, follow along after the break!
PhotoSync [$1.99 - App Store link] is exactly what Sean needs! This little gem allows you to share photos and video from one device to another, including your Mac or Windows computer - and it's super easy to do.
In Sean's case, he would tap sync on his iPad and select the option to receive photos and video. Then on his iPhone, he'd tap the photo and videos he wants to transfer, and choose to sync them to another device. He'd then select his iPad from the list and start the sync. Once the sync is complete, Sean will find the videos in his iPad's camera roll.
The transfers rate is up to 2.5MB/sec, so depending on the size of the files, it can take a couple minutes, but syncing will continue in the background while Sean works on his blog post about his daughter.
This really is a fabulous app. I, like Sean, also blog photos and videos of my daughter and am thrilled with the discovery of PhotoSync.
Anyone else have any App for That suggestions for Sean? Let him -- and all of us -- know.
