There are nearly as many ways to save photos to the cloud as there are camera apps in the App Store, but which one is right for you? Figuring it out can be a pain, but don't worry; we're here to break down the core features of eight of the top cloud-storage photo services (and warn you of any caveats to be aware of) including Adobe Revel, Shutter, Flickr, and more — and then decide which one is the best.
The rumor mill just can't seem to make up its mind when it comes to the fabled iPhone 6. After confidently showing mockups over the last few months, a new report Monday from GforGames now claims those leaked images may be nothing more than a "rough idea" of what Cupertino has in store for us later this year. Confused? We say it's better to temper expectations and be patient anyway...
With the rumored iWatch apparently on the horizon, health and fitness appears to be on the mind of many developers, including WebMD, who launched a new health improvement program this week as part of their free iPhone app. Much like the upcoming iOS 8 Health app, WebMD can now work with biometric devices such as Fitbit or UP by Jawbone to gather data, create goals, and stay healthy. As it turns out, we've got a bit more on that very subject in our Thursday recap as well...
We're still sad about the demise of Everpix, but part of the grieving process is moving on, and now that service's former competitors at Picturelife are offering a sweetheart deal for those still looking for a new cloud-based home for their photos.
We've got free apps highlighted, some hints of what might be upcoming in Jony Ive's redesigns of all things iOS, and some struggles Cupertino (and developers) seem to be having with iCloud. All of that and more in this week's stories too hot to miss.
Like Captain Ahab from Moby Dick, we relentlessly seek our own white whale: A way to curate digital photos on the Mac, sync them to the cloud, and make the whole collection accessible from iOS. All of the services we’ve caught in our net thus far have been tossed overboard, but another has now surfaced on the horizon. Picturelife may not completely live up to “white whale” status, but it’s definitely worth harpooning. With the right subscription plan, we can upload even a massive library to the cloud (with a few caveats), complete with automatic organization and duplicate detection while backing up images stored across multiple social networks.
Apple's Photo Stream is great, but what about all of those photos lurking inside iPhoto or Aperture on your computer? Picturelife can push them to the cloud, and add images from almost everywhere else, too.
