When I had my HTC Hero, this app worked great...but sadly not on my new EVO 3D. It does not see the network. The developer emailed me and is unable to find the problem at this time...hopefully in later revisions and I will come back!!

Nice app that does what it says. I did have a small problem and the developer was very helpful and responsive to me. I recommend the app.

Does what it says -- automatically copies photos (and videos) to your home server. I have a NAS so I just created a folder for cellphone pics there and it works fine.

Broken and no longer supported When attempting to upload, I get an error saying "volume label syntax is incorrect". I've attempted to contact support, but I get no response. This was a great app for a lot of years, but now it appears to finally have bit the dust. EDIT: This transfer error is caused by the Android Camera saving files with a colon in the file name. To remedy the issue, get a file manager and search your SD card for 'nopm', as the filenames in question are ended with ':nopm:'.

Works great! I love the feature that you don't have to do anything. As soon as you are within WiFi range the pictures are on the sever. Great app.

Awesome with one small error The app cannot handle the files that contain :nopm: as I encountered in an S4. You will have to rename or manually move this file. You cannot have colons (:) in file names on Windows file systems.

Great App I have it set up to copy new pictures/videos to my NAS whenever the phone is plugged in and connected to my WiFi network. A couple times I got something like "searching for server" but I haven't figured out whether that was a bug in the app or something on my end. Will try to figure it out next time and message the developers.
