I’ve been searching for a while to find a way to automatically upload photos from my phone to Dropbox, for easy access later. The folks are Dropbox are considering adding that feature to their Android app, but they’ve been “considering” it for a while now and I don’t have much hope.
However, the popular photo-sharing app picplz just added automatic Dropbox uploading to their application and it works great! When you take a photo with their app, you can choose from the following:
- Apply an effect to it (black and white, etc).
- Post it to your Facebook, Twitter, Posterous, Flickr, Tumblr or Foursquare.
- Add it to your Dropbox.
By default, I only have it go to Dropbox, though I push fun photos to Facebook/Twitter from time to time.
What’s great about the Dropbox integration is that it uploads the full high-res untouched version, along with a copy of it with any “effect” you may have chosen.
They have apps for iPhone and Android, so most smartphone users are covered. Feel free to follow me on there to see what kind of photos I post.
Do you use picplz? Why or why not?
