Keep your photos safe in Google Drive and save storage space on your phone. This app is for people who want to backup their photos in the cloud, but not automatically (or inadvertently) share them with the world like Google+ does.
The pro version includes the following features above the free version:
- Ad free
- User selectable auto sync interval (from 5 mins to 24 hrs)
- Sync videos
- Auto download photos that were uploaded by another device
- Option to automatically delete photos during auto sync
- Option to automatically delete videos during auto sync
- Full screen photo view
- Function to manually delete a photo from your phone and Drive simultaneously
- Sync file deletes on your device that were performed on Google Drive
This is a standalone app from the free version of Gallery Drive sync. If you have previously used the free version you can uninstall it and all of your settings will be retained.
At the click of a button Gallery Drive Sync Pro will upload the images in your photo gallery to Google Drive. The app still retains all the images on your phone but can optionally re-scale them to occupy only 10-15% of the storage they used before. The photos look just the same when displayed on your phone screen, but can save you gigabytes of internal storage (great for Nexus users)!
After your photos have been stored on Google Drive they are easily shared selectively with friends and family.
Note: it is OK to move or change the names of uploaded sub folders and images in your Google Drive. The app will still remember which files have been uploaded, however if you delete a generated sub folder it will be recreated on the next upload.
*** It is recommended that if you have a limited data plan you only use the app over WiFi because to upload an 8 Megapixel photo will generally require a 2.5 Megabyte data transfer.
*** This app is dependent on Google Drive's availability to function. If you are experiencing persistent errors please check the status of Google Drive here: http://www.google.com/appsstatus
