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.

superb Small in footprint, big in features. This app has stuff built-in like 'upload when charging' ,renaming of the filename the camera gave it, organizing in folders in dateschemes you choose. Connects via samba. Very important: it tells when uploads fail. Regularly, however, it will upload the whole bunch again instead of just unsynced stuff. Otherwise would've been definitely 5 stars.

Great App, New Issue I've been trying this for a while, and it's great for moving all those pictures and videos you shoot and preventing your phone from filling up. UPDATE: New problem though : Files aren't deleting from SD card but they are uploading

Works exactly as I wanted but... ...speed of my home network is 100mbit/s. My phone truly linked at this speed to my PC but this software are copying files much slower. Secondly I'm still searching similar app with syncing of Pictures and Videos from phones Camera folder to my PC's Pictures and Videos folder separately. This one is working well only for pictures. 4 starts for low speed.
