Customer Reviews

Unsuccessful for me (1 star)
I am a CompTIA A+ Certified Computer Technician, and after several hours I threw in the towel trying to get this to work as they describe. Could it be user error? Certainly. However, the bottom line is that if it's that complicated for a highly tech savvy person to get working, then in my opinion, it's not very user friendly.

Use It Every Day! Reliable @ 4 mos. (5 stars)
[Thanks for the update and new features - good app support]

Just right for me. I've used this app to back up my photos to Dropbox for 4 months now - flawless. Super easy to use. What more can I say?!

Mr (5 stars)
Brilliant was having trouble with iTunes copying photos to my new iPad. This breezed through,the problem. Why can't Apple incorporate this sort of software,in the forthcoming iOS 6
