Photo Slideshow Director, developed by Socusoft, is a perfect iPhone app for the creative iPhotographer who loves to share their photos with family and friends.

Photo Slideshow Director is packed with features and doesn't overlook a single detail when it comes to creating an awesome photo slideshow. This was my first experience with a slideshow app, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I was extremely surprised (and pleased) to discover that the app goes miles beyond your typical slideshow creator.

Photo Slideshow Director is a creative powerhouse which is also easy to navigate. I didn't have a single problem figuring out where to find customizations or what to do next, mainly because the menu at the bottom of the screen is designed to help you "flow" through creating a slideshow.

Photo Slideshow Director seems to automatically save your slideshow project every time you make a change, which is wonderful in case the app crashes. Also, the app comes with a built-in photo editor, saving you from having to use multiple photo apps. I found the editor to be exceptional, allowing you to add creative filters, text, and even stickers to your photos.

The only negative thing I encountered with the Photo Slideshow Director iPhone app was a tendency to freeze if I was switching between apps or trying to open an existing project.

If you're someone who is snap happy with your iPhone's camera, you'll fall in love with Photo Slideshow Director. The app is packed with features and is dead simple to use.

How to Share Photos and Videos among Apple Devices (iPad/iPhone/iPod/Mac)

Wireless Transfer App ReviewIf you recorded several video clips on your iPhone and now you want to sync them to your iPad, you may be looking for a less complicated way than iTunes to transfer them from your iPhone to your iPad. If you took some amazing photos with your iPod touch 4 and now you want to move them to your Mac to create a photo slideshow in iMovie, in what way will you get the iPod pics over to your Mac?

Of course, you can launch iTunes and connect your device to your computer via USB cable to have your photos and videos transferred. Yet, as I know, many Apple fans do not like to use iTunes to sync media. On one hand, when you open the iPad/iPhone/iPod folder in your computer, what you will find are numerous folders with unmeaningful names. The photos and videos are totally unorganized. It's hard to find what you really need. On the other hand, the sync may easily erase the photos and videos previously transferred to your device. The iTunes sync requires that you have a computer at hand as well.

Even if you'd like to use iTunes and cable to transfer photos and videos among your iDevices, what if your cable or computer is unavailable? In a party, what if you want to share photos with your friend? What if you want to send your baby's photos from your iPhone to your wife's iPad? This is what Wireless Transfer App is all about. It is really easy to use. You never need to use iTunes or cable again. As its name indicates, it only requires that you connect your devices to the same Wi-Fi network.

So how does it work? Let me take transferring photos and videos from iPhone to iPad using Wireless Transfer App as an example.

iPhone to iPad wireless transfer

1. Download and install Wireless Transfer App on both devices. (iTunes Link)
2. Check whether both devices are connected to the same wifi network.
3. Run Wireless Transfer App on both devices.
4. Tap the "Receive" button on iPad and find the device name of iPhone.
5. Tap the device name of iPhone and get all iPhone photos and videos listed.
6. Select the photos and videos you want to transfer and start downloading them to iPad.

That's really easy! Feel free to share photos and videos among iPad, iPhone and iPod devices without iTunes or cable using Wireless Transfer App.

Wirelessly Transfer Photos & Videos between iPhone, iPad, iPod and Computer with Wireless Transfer App

I have lots of great photos taken with my iPhone. I do want to transfer them to my computer. However, when I connected my iPhone with my PC via cable, what I found on my phone was countless folders, with several photos in each one. I didn't want to copy all the photos to my computer and then view them folder after folder. And it was really difficult to find a specific photo, let alone to organize and categorize them. In a word, I hate this way of transferring photos from my iPhone to my computer.

Transferring photos from PC to iPhone brings me big headache too. It seems that I can only get the pictures in one computer transferred. If I want to transfer photos from another computer to my phone, the photos previously downloaded to the phone will be erased. Besides, every time I start the transfer, I need to put the photos into a specific folder first. Otherwise, the photos that have previously been synced to my device will be erased too.

You will find it more complicated to transfer photos & videos from one iPhone to another, from iPad to iPhone, from iPhone to iPad, and such. It is just too troublesome to send & receive photos between two Apple devices via iMessage or Email. It is also inadvisable to exchange photos and videos among iPhone, iPad and iPod devices using iTunes, which, in my opinion, is so stupid and hard to use.

Having said all of the above, what on earth is the easiest and fastest way to transfer photos and videos among iPhone, iPad, iPod and computer? Actually, there are lots of Windows and Mac software tools on the Internet that work great for transferring files between computer and device. However, this kind of software tool usually costs 20-30 dollars and you need to download and install it to your computer. It just looks like an upgraded version of iTunes.

The iOS app named Wireless Transfer App caught my attention. I am fond of it so much that I will never use iTunes to transfer photos and videos from and to my iPhone once again. As its name indicates, this $0.99 app takes advantage of Wi-Fi network to transfer photos and videos between computer and device. With Wireless Transfer App, you can transfer photos and videos

From iPad to iPad
