Gallery Drive Sync

Gallery Drive Sync


Keep your photos safe in Google Drive and save storage space on your phone. This app is for people who want to backup their photos in the cloud, but not automatically (or inadvertently) share them with the world like Google+ does.

At the click of a button Gallery Drive Sync will upload the images in your photo gallery to Google Drive. The app still retains all the images on your phone but can optionally re-scale them to occupy only 10-15% of the storage they used before. The photos look just the same when displayed on your phone screen, but can save you gigabytes of internal storage (great for Nexus users)!

After your photos have been stored on Google Drive they are easily shared selectively with friends and family.

Note: it is OK to move or change the names of uploaded sub folders and images in your Google Drive. The app will still remember which files have been uploaded, however if you delete a generated sub folder it will be recreated on the next upload.

*** It is recommended that if you have a limited data plan you only use the app over WiFi because to upload an 8 Megapixel photo will generally require a 2.5 Megabyte data transfer.

*** This app is dependent on Google Drive's availability to function. If you are experiencing persistent errors please check the status of Google Drive here: http://www.google.com/appsstatus

*** If you have any problems with this app please email me before leaving a bad review, I reply to all emails within 24hrs

Version 1.50.2 - Put in a work around to fix a bug caused by Google Play Services

Does what I need I wanted an app that would save my pics and videos, plus let me acess them from my PC. That is just what this does. Had it on my Samsung S2 and now on my HTC One M8...works just as good on both. Just don't mess it up by trying to 'fix' something that isn't broken ;o)

It is better to use eS File Manager and select all photos share with Google Drive. that would be faster than this app.
