Loom is a new service that lets you store any photos or videos in order to free up precious storage space on your iPhone or iPad. The best part is that you've then got one unified library that's accessible across all your devices. Loom is available for both iOS and OS X.
The Loom app itself is compatible with both iPhone and iPad and can show you either unified libraries or separate ones. It also has support for albums so you can sort photos however you'd like. All your photos are stored in the cloud so everything stays in sync across all your devices. Loom can also sync your content in the background as well. You can then access your media by logging into Loom through a browser or through the Loom for Mac app.
If you've ever used Dropbox before, Loom functions very similarly but just puts an emphasis specifically on photo and video. The plans are also a lot cheaper. Loom gives you 5GB of space for free. If you'd like to store more than that, you can purchase a yearly subscription as an in-app purchase. Pricing is as follows:
- 50GB - $39.99
- 250GB - $99.99
I currently subscribe to the 100GB plan with Dropbox and I know I pay around $100 a year for it. With Loom, I'd be getting 250GB for the same price. Unfortunately, I need to store lots of different file types, not just photos and videos. Either way, storage prices for Loom are more than fair and if you take a ton of photo and video and find yourself frequently running out of space, it's a great option.
One of the biggest complaints I get from friends and family members is that their iCloud backups stop working due to running out of storage space. Often times, their bloated Camera Roll is the culprit. Loom can help solve iCloud backup woes in their tracks and for users that are familiar with these frustrations, Loom is a superb option.
