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

Works as advertised. Great "resize" option! When I contacted the app maker with a question about privacy concerns, he replied swiftly with a good no-nonsense answer. The app allows you to sync your smartphone gallery with Google Drive. You can then automatically sync the created subfolder with the Google Drive map on your computer. Optionally, after upload, you can resize the pictures on your phone to free some storage space. That's a great idea!

Great app, wish it supported Dropbox too I recently switched from Drive to Dropbox and really miss this app. It's easy to setup and works perfectly - my favorite feature is the ability to resize the photos on the phone after upload so that I can save space but still have shareable sized images available on the phone. But even just the sync and delete feature doesn't exist in Dropbox's own app and there's no good 3rd party apps.

Photos Gone This app worked well (but slow) for multiple folders of photos I wanted to upload to drive so I could delete them from my phone. The last folder was my biggest one, with ~1,700 photos in it. Gallery Drive said they all synced successfully, and I took that for granted since the last ones all worked, so I went ahead and deleted the folder. The photos that supposedly synced are not on my drive anywhere. They're not on my other accounts, I checked just in case. I can't recover the photos because my phone isn't rooted. I'm SOL because I trusted this stupid app. How can it tell me it successfully synced 1,700 photos when I can't find a single one? Where did they all go?
