Video support added to PhotoToMac iPhone app


Galarina today released PhotoToMac 2.0 for iPhone and iPod touch. PhotoToMac now transfers photos and videos over Wi-Fi to a Mac folder. Transfers can be done in the background on iOS 4. PhotoToMac requires no cables, no internet connection, no browser and no emails with attachments. The only requirement is that the iPhone or iPod touch is on the same Wi-Fi network as the Mac. PhotoToMac also works on an iPad, including support for JPEG photos imported via the iPad Camera Connection Kit.


The three step process is very easy:
1. Select a Mac from a list of file sharing Macs on the Wi-Fi network.
2. Select a folder from the list of Mac shared folders.
3. Select the photos and videos you want to transfer and tap the "Transfer" button. Any photo or video that’s available in the standard Photos app can be transferred.

PhotoToMac requires no cables, no internet connection, no browser and no emails. The only requirement is that the iPhone or iPod touch is on the same Wi-Fi network as the Mac.

"A lot of people find it cumbersome that they have to connect their device with a cable to their Mac every time they want to transfer some photos or videos." said Chris Cornelis, founder and CEO of Zwijndrecht, Belgium based Galarina. "This is where PhotoToMac comes to the rescue. It all started about 18 months ago with the first version that only transferred Camera Roll photos. The new version transfers any photo or video wirelessly from an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to a Mac."

PhotoToMac runs on iPad and has support for JPEG photos imported via the iPad Camera Connection Kit. Photos and videos can also be transferred to a Time Capsule or an Airport Express with an attached hard disk.

System Requirements:
* iPhone or iPod touch 3.1 or later
* Mac OS 10.4 or higher

Pricing and Availability:
PhotoToMac 2.0 is available worldwide in the App Store Photography category for 1.99 (USD). A demo video is available on the PhotoToMac website. There is a free version of PhotoToMac available. PhotoToMac Free downscales the photos and transfers videos in low quality.
