When’s the last time you pulled out your digital camera to take a picture? We’re guessing it’s been a while. With all of the tech advances and upgrades in the past few years, there has been a huge increase in the quality of cell phone cameras – some of them are even better-quality than the good old point and shoot.

Enter PhotoSync, an app that uses your WiFi connection to wirelessly transfer photos and videos between your phone, computer and even cloud storage. Smile big this Christmas!
