DropSnap – Must Have App For Android

DropSnap Instantaneously Syncs All Your Android Device’s Photos to Dropbox. I am the type of person who is constantly snapping pictures with his phone but then I have to choose which pictures go to Dropbox and manually select them all and upload them. It was a very tedious process, but luckily someone thought the same thing and did something about it. The only way I could think of uploading my pics to my PC without connecting my phone to it was through DropBox and someone had the same idea but created a software to do what I was doing manually.

The moment you snap a picture it is saved to a photodirectory directory in your Android phone which DropSnap syncs automatically to a folder inside of DropBox. You have several options about how many times a day you can sync, if you want it only over Wifi or also over 3G, but I stuck to wifi because I’m usually connected to wifi where ever I am. DropSnap is a free download, but requires a $3.99 in-app purchase for automatic uploading to work. If you stay with the free version, you’ll get a notification every time you take a picture, which will let you enter the app and manually sync your photos.

  1. Perfect but still you will face the limitation with Dropbox.

    During the last weekend i have installed my personal cloud storage will post about it soon inshalla

  2. @Frankom – Fantastic! Looking forward to reading about it! I have the 50GB Package from Dropbox and I’m only at 27% and I use it a lot, so for me it works perfectly!

    Google+ does this too. Syncs videos too. and you can choose when to upload photos and videos separately (WiFi or 3G, While Charging or not, Roaming or Not).

    Dropbox has a beta android app you can download from the forums that also automatically syncs photos from your phone. As an added bonus, you also get free storage space added on as a thank you for beta testing. I don’t remember details, but I think it is 250 MB added for the first photo, and 250 MB added for certian amounts of additional uploads.

  5. @Blizmo – It does but not everything, not pictures you download, and it doesn’t go somewhere where you can just have the file and edit. Thats why I prefer the DropBox method!

    @Yusef -I got the beta for my computer but didn’t get it for my Android, not sure where that would be!

  6. @Yusef – Thanks yousef! Downloading now!
