FolderSync – High Res Cloud Photo Storage


You want to store your all-important camera photos, but don’t have the time to transfer it to your desktop or external device. Or better still, you would rather want it as it is – without any compression – in the cloud. Google Drive does it, but compresses your data.

But you don’t need to fret when there is FolderSync. This Android app will allow you to store full resolution photos in any of the many cloud storage services like SkyDrive, Dropbox, SugarSync, Ubuntu One, Box.net, LiveDrive, HiDrive, NetDocuments, Amazon S3, FTP, to name a few.



Here are the steps to high-res photo storage.

1. Open an account in any of the cloud storage sites mentioned above. For example, Google Drive.

2. On  the home screen, click on Accounts and navigate to the plus sign to choose Google Drive.

3. Going back to the home screen, look for ‘folderpair’. This essentially wants you to identify the folder or folders you want synced with the Google Drive account. So name your folderpair as “London Images” if you like, and another folder as “New York Images”, and so on. If you want to backup all your phone photos saved on your phone’s SD card, ensure that you backup the entire folder and not just DCIM, and so on. When you are choosing the sync type, go for ‘to remote folder’. Choose your ‘scheduling’ options and you are half done.

4. When it comes to choosing your sync options, it’s best to skip the first two options but check all the rest. Which means, go ahead and check the ‘sync subfolders’ option, but uncheck ‘sync hidden files’ choice. If you want your photos deleted after the sync, check ‘delete source files after sync’. Also check ‘Do not sync deletions’, so you have a backup option in case you delete a photo you didn’t intend to.

5. After you’ve set up your account, ensure you ‘save’ it by clicking on the button at the upper right hand corner, and you are good to go by just tapping on the ‘sync’ button in the lower left hand corner of the sync screen.

Happy photo storage and photo syncing!

P.S: There are free (lite) and paid versions, but the free version should suffice if you don’t want to set up add-on facilities like ‘Sync Filters’.

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Apple iPhone XR Review

If you aren't sure you are ready to leave the Home button behind and embrace Face ID, think again. We'll tell you why the iPhone XR is worth the sacrifice - especially because it's just as good (if not better than) the iPhone XS. Find out more in out full review.
Should I Buy The Apple iPhone XR?
The iPhone XR brings Face ID to the masses. We’re sure people will continue to rebel against the lack of Home button, but eventually we expect them to come round and embrace the larger screen, Portrait mode (front and back), animoji and memoji.We have no doubt that this will be a popular iPhone and it deserves to be. The only question is why would anyone buy an iPhone XS when the iPhone XR is just as powerful and has a bigger screen.

2019 BMW i8 Review

The 2019 BMW i8 is a head-turner for its looks, which hides its plug-in powertrain. That’s good or bad, depending on your priorities.Even among six-figure cars with two doors, the 2019 BMW i8 steals stares. That could be because of the dramatic wing doors and futuristic shape, its laser headlights at night, or the 2019 i8’s silent propulsion for up to 18 miles.
Or it may steal attention because, even after more than four years on sale, it’s a very rare sight.

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.
