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+ Photos does.

Gallery Drive Sync will manually or automatically 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), while the backups in Google Drive are retained at full resolution.

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

Works ok Does what it says... Only problem was creation of duplicates in one folder (not a camera folder), but I can sort that out.

Some images corrupted Some (~5%) of the images it uploaded got corrupted. If the images are important to you, check them on Drive before deleting them from your phone.
