Neat, it is also available for IOS.

 

I downloaded it but decided not to use it. It won’t operate unless Location Access is set to Always, which I do not like. It uses about 4% of your battery life in 24 hrs which is OK but I don’t want it tracking without the App open.

 

Does it upload full sized images or does it reduce the file size?

 

Do you have full authority so it doesn’t start uploading stuff when you are connected to a slow Wifi server?

 

You can order an actual printed travel album from them at a reduced cost (10 Euros off) but I wonder what the actual cost is. That would make a nice gift ... maybe .... the only relatives that like looking at travel pics are your spouse and maybe a housebound grandparent. The kids don’t care. LOL.

 

Thanks for posting.

All great questions & concerns John. Full size photos are downloaded when you have stable wifi, battery usage LLP pwhich correlates to location accuracy is adjustable, & the location access can easily be turned on/off. I haven't delved into the photo book because I've always used Walgreens for those.

 

Mike, when we leave the Badlands, we're heading to Montana to track down Top Gun for fly-fishing lessons.

Isn’t that something that Apple is supposed to fix in the next version? Thought I remembered that being mentioned. I agree that it should always be an option regardless what the app does.

Moss don't grow on these tires.  Already in Montana - staying in a very nice commercial campground tonight within site of Custers LAST moments on earth.  Will be fishing tomorrow afternoon.

 

Hope Duke, Chris and the pups find me.
