    Hey guys,

    Currently using the CameraZoomFX app and I love it and therefore am taking more photos now which is great.

    I had been saving to my external sd card but I want something a little more failsafe.

    I could manually or automatically do a backup using Titanium to a server somewhere but i'd like something more user friendly.

    Google+ is really easy as it automatically saves all picssaved in default location to your Google+ account. The only negative is that each pic is compressed to 2MP.

    I'd like to be able to use an app that functions in the same way as the Google+ app but not compress my pics.

    Any suggestions?

    Welcome to the forums - thanks for joining!

    You could always set up a folder on your desktop called photos and transfer them via USB... if you would like some sort of storage, then it is worth checking out Dropbox

    Dropbox is (initially) 2gb of cloud storage... if you follow the link in my signature then, upon your signup, we both receive 250mb of extra storage each (I think that this is limited to a total of 8gb). It installs on all of your computers and on your phone and means that you can have access to all dropbox files, everywhere!

    Hope this is of some help!

    +1 for dropbox. I use it for all my teaching files.

    No, dropbox is an integrated cloud backup service. Files and photos are uploaded as is.

    Just to let you know, I signed up for Dropbox in the end (having toyed with Sugarsync first) and I am really pleased with it :)

    Cheers :)
