This program is also available as a low-cost donate version, with select stable versions and no end user obligations.

The free version is for trying and testing, and is fully functional, but it may ask you to upgrade when there are newer ALFA versions available. If you do not like to be a tester over time or just want to show support, please buy the low-cost pay-for version once you have found it working satisfactory in your home.

In general, please share successes with the world, but more importantly - as goes for any Alpha-version tester, any found issues to [email protected]

Includes easy-to-follow Guide for getting started.

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.

Outstanding! This app does exactly what the other backups don't... Allows the user with some network knowledge to have a quick backup tool. Why can't the NAS companies purchase this to use this as their app? Works perfectly!

I'm keeping this my secret Just the app I was looking for. Better than syncing to my computer via Dropbox. Going through the home network is so much faster.

Finally!!! This app will sync your photos from device (SD and local SD) Just downloaded and installed. Easy to setup, even on a domain network with security. Did my first sync and :Wha Lah" my photos and videos are on my PC where I want them. No more connecting USB and copying over, hoping I got all the new ones. I will keep testing re-syncs and for duplicates, but so far all is good. If it can track and sync all new adds then this is 5 stars. Need to test and verify how it handles the delete function. GOOD JOB Sweet Home!!! I would pay a couple bucks for this. Did see it, but you should consider adding a second "home" sync location.

Unreasonable compromise Alfa works fine. Harasses the crap out of users and notification bar pushing you to buy the full version. The full version doesn't work. Its total crap. I paid for it and then wasted an hour troubleshooting before a refund.
